For many, Pranburi is just what the doctor ordered: an out-of-the-way spot with a focus on relaxation. Stay in this area and expect sea views (though not necessarily from your room), natural green surroundings, together with well-deserved peace and quiet. Most resorts have a shuttle service to transport guests to Hua Hin, but Pranburi is best suited to those whose ideal holiday involves basking in the wonderful nothingness of lounging poolside.
Located 30km to the south of Hua Hin, it is quiet, relaxed and less developed than the better-known resorts to the north. It is precisely these qualities that give Pranburi its appeal, and it has grown in popularity over the past few years with those who want a little peace and tranquillity while they laze in the sun. The beach is fronted by a small road that extends south from the estuary of the Pranburi River to Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park. The resorts we collected for you here are Pranburi’s best – have a peek!

Tanao Sri Resort
3-Star | Some Sea Views | Nice Pool | Barbeque Area | Spa
Each of the 39 rooms are large, and seem even larger thanks to high ceilings and a unique six-sided design. Artsy touches and abundant natural light make the interiors inviting and very liveable, while balconies look over the garden or the Gulf of Thailand. The swimming pool is perched above the beach and has a separate children’s area. Enjoy sunset drinks at the beach bar or a bottle of wine and a meal at the restaurant. Relax at the day spa, or take a break from the sun in the shady beachfront garden.
Privacy Beach Resort and Spa
4-Star | Playground | Wireless Internet | Spa | Great for Families
Other than size, the biggest difference between the four room types is what you find on the terrace – and none are bad options. The Pool Villas (obviously) have their own private dip pool. From the patios on the Beach Villas, you can jump directly into the main pool. The Lake Deluxe Villas have large decks; comfortable lounge areas directly over a lotus pond. All rooms have wireless Internet access and good furnishings. The hotel has a restaurant, bakery, and pool bar, as well as a ballroom and gift shop.
Aleenta Hua Hin Resort & Spa
5-Star | True Boutique | Ultra Romantic | Beachfront | Wireless Internet
From the 15 suites and fine cuisine to the personal attention, the high standards at Aleenta are without equal. For those looking to be immersed in undisturbed luxury with that special someone, this is the perfect place. The rooms are a mishmash of unique styles and features; all are exquisite and many have plunge pools. Kick back with a book on your hammock, indulge in tasty meals cooked by an expert chef, or relax with one of the many refreshing treatments in the spa.
