Remote beaches near Hua Hin

Wild shot in the dark this but hope someone can advise. Am starting a new job in Bangkok on 17 Sept & plan to arrive 10-14 days earlier to get my bearings & also get some beach time in. Planning to get the train to Hua Hin & spend a few days there & wondering if, rather than staying at the main beach, there are any really quiet beach bungalow places within 15-20km where we can get some real peace & quiet? happy to go up to $80-100 per night if necessary.

Thanks in advance.

Pranburi about 20-25km south of Hua Hin has lots of quiet beach resorts. As its off season no where is likely to be too busy. Even Khao Takiab just about 2-3km south of Hua Hin is worth a look at that time of year.

Yes as said, Pranburi / Pak Nam Pran / Sam Roi Yot area south of town

These all well within your budget, just some examples

Sam Roi Yot Holiday resort:

Terra Selisa is modern

Note rates on websites can be a lot more than the local hotel booking service

Terra Selisa is across the road from the beach but quiet area

Bungalow for 2 with breakfast just under $50 , pool view about $ 58 seaview bungalow about $67

Many go out to try and see the Dolphins, but I suppose time of year varies, but nice anyway, boats over to Monkey island and the nearby National Park attractions are nice, to can ride a bicycle along the area, nice and relaxed :)

Do any of the more remote beaches have loungers and parasol for shade, nothing worse that laying on a towel on the sand without shade. Any with beach bars or food shacks/restaurants?

Will be there in February so imagine all places will be busy, any suggestions welcome.

It depends which beach, there are remote beach areas where there is pretty much nothing, at Suan Son beach there is shade and you can get Thai food and drinks.

Khao Takiab - the part that is 'beyond' Khao Takiab which is only about 4 km from town would be busy, but loungers shade available, but would be busy.

Suan Son forther along would be quiet during weekdays, packed at weekends.

If you go to Dolphin Bay you have places like Dolphin Bay resort where there are loungers and shade on the beach.

You can buy straw mats in the market and lay towel on the mat, that can reduce the sand content of the towel :) but take another towel for drying off.

If you plan to move around a bit even for sightseeing you can buy a cheap cooler box, buy ice from a 7-11 and get your drinks and snacks cheap and make a picnic out of it.

Also large beach towels are cheap in the market, B 150-200 , they can get roughed up in the sand, use and leave them at the end of your holiday.

If you want a big day out for beach and snorkeling there is a day trip to Koh Talu island which is gorgeous, takes about 2.5 hrs each way but lovely.

If you want get away from it all beaches you could perhaps think of a couple of night in Ban Krut area, very quiet, evenings are a few drinks + seafood at a beach hut bar, but fun:) , about 2 hrs by road south of town or 90 mins by the fast 11.11 hrs railcar train, if you book to stay accommodation places will pick you up from the station at Ban Krut
