We had 3 rooms at this nice little hotel. We stayed a week in early July which is their off season. We had 4 children between 2 and 6 years old and 5 adults. The staff were wonderful and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were big and clean and the combination of the beach and their swimming pools... More

We had a very good stay at this hotel which is right on a lovely stretch of the beach and a couple of minutes from a large mall. It's walkable into the centre of town but is in a very quiet spot. Our room was a good size, and again was really quiet. The staff at the hotel were delightful... More

I enjoyed my stay at the Baan Bayan quite a bit. It is situated far enough from the main road that it is quiet and a short walk to the beach which is right in front. The staff are friendly and there are a lot of nice touches: a very good breakfast spread, nice bar/restaurant by the pool, being only... More

This is my kind of place for a long weekend outside the hustle and noise of Bangkok. The Baan Bayan is beachfront hotel built around a restored early 1900's Thai house. The rest of the buildings are done in locale and period correct architecture and provides a feeling of Old Siam. The staff is cheerful and attentive without being underfoot.... More

Baan Bayan has an exellent location: it's right on the beach, but at the same time within easy walking distance from Market Village, one of Hua Hin's biggest shopping malls. Our Courtyard room was great - airy, light and very clean, with high ceilings and wooden floors. The hotel's setting is beautiful, the staff is friendly and willing. Breakfasts were... More

Didn't really like Hua Hin a lot as it is humid and busy. However, once i checked into this hotel, it felt so relax. Nice manicured greenery around the hotel. The hotel is not that huge so didnt have to walk very far to the front desk, pool or beach. Provided free wifi in the rooms and also free shuttle... More

The best first. In my opinion, the hotel has the absolute best location in Hua Hin. It is right in the middle of the long beach, with night-time market, inner city, shopping centre, hospital and all the great restaurants in 5-10 minute walking distance. The staff are very nice and service-minded, everything in the Thai spirit, of course. The restaurant... More

If you are looking for a plunge pool only, good wifi, great food, great restaurant staff and a clean beach then this is for you. Our only disappointing issue was that we had booked a twin room well over a month in advance and paid the deposit promptly. On arrival we were shown to a double room and were expected... More

Right off the bat, the manager upgraded our room. We walked into a huge, high ceilinged, cleverly designed room with a very comfortable room and huge bath. This is the best hotel we stayed in during our 2 week trip. The grounds are lush and beautiful, and it is just a short walk to a beautiful groomed beach with fine... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Baan Bayan was originally built in the early 1900s. Facing Hua Hin’s white sandy beach, it has the undeniably superb location in one of the most sought after areas there. Baan Bayan forever catches the eyes of passersby with its hundred-year old frangipani tree, its spacious veranda together with its carved eaves and railings embracing the house. Originally a family’s summer retreat, Baan Bayan was one among many summer beach houses owned by Royal Highness Prince Devawongse Varopakarn. Built during the early period of construction of Hua Hin town and railway station, the house had been handed down to Princess Absornsamarn, consort of Royal Highness Chantaburi Naruenart, before being sold to Khun Prabha Chaiyawat on 1 April 1952. The house was then renamed Baan Bayan, as coined by Ya-Khob, the renowned Thai writer. In the past, Baan Bayan was regularly visited by Khun Prabha, her children and grandchildren and great grandchildren. Its charm and ambience render feelings of warmth and happiness in its simplest form. Not only does Baan Bayan hold its value as a rare architectural building, but it also reminds those very fond of the house of times passed and memories still cherished. Today, it is one of the rarest and finest examples of a golden teak Thai style bungalow house, lovingly restored to its former glory. Baan Bayan was awarded the prestigious Historical Architectural Conservation Award in 2005 by the Association of Siamese Architects (ASA) under the Royal Patronage. Guests staying at Baan Bayan can experience the glory of a bygone era, yet with all of today’s modern comforts and amenities. It is positioned as a small exclusive luxury beach hotel offering the charm of a traditional Thai aristocratic beach house. Baan Bayan will allow guests to sink back into a history rich with associations of the swinging, glorious 1920/30’s. Guests who have a desire to experience history and culture and seek a different vacation venue will appreciate the atmosphere at Baan Bayan. Advantageously, the resort is only a few minutes away from Hua Hin town center, market, and airport. ... more   less
