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

This beachside hotel is set back from Hua Hin's busy thoroughfare so has a peaceful and charming ambiance. Made up of several wooden structures in colonial style, in lush and beautifully planted gardens, it beats the posher hotels hands down. The fretwork, intricate balustrades and many verandas make each room or little house feel very individual. Staff are friendly and... More

We stayed 5 nights with our kids in Baan Bayan. We had a great time. A wonderful courtyard view room and a beachfront location. The room was so big that our kids could even play hide and seek.... The hotelmanager was very nice and helpful. He is doing a great job. We enjoyed the wonderful breakfast and the nice pool... More

We have been coming here for six years as a weekend escape from Bangkok. And that it is. Baan Bayan is a beautiful property right on the beach -- arguably the best beach in Hua Hin. This small boutique hotel has lovely, airy rooms with high ceilings, beautifully decorated, most with small balconies for sitting, watching the sun rise, and... More

This hotel is amazing! First line to the sea with its private beach. There is a restaurant on the beach with candles at night next to hotels beach. The hotel area is so green and I loved the sounds at night. I like the wooden floor in the rooms, it's a good feeling when you coming back from outside with... More

It was a long ride from Bangkok to Kanchanaburi and finished at Hua Hin for the night. Baan Bayan is really nice, spacious, comfy and rusty. I had a relaxing day on the pool side and on the beach too. Just outside across the main road is a shopping mall.

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
