The Good stuff - The hotel has recently rebranded itself so its a modern, art inspired hotel, with lovely quirky sculptures (all animals mostly rabbits, which, as far as I know arent indigenous to Thailand) but neither the less, make it feel fun and quirky.

While this resort has all the makings of a 5 star hotel (the rooms and amenities truly are 5 star) the service, particularly from the bar, lets this hotel down. It was a reoccurring theme (with waits of up to an hour to receive our drink orders). One particular afternoon the beach bar was closed due to rain and we... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
SO Sofitel Hua Hin is an artistic adventure though the Evolution of Life, designed by award winning architects, designers and enhanced with signature fashion designer, Polpat Asavaprapha. The journey unfolds at the moment of arrival at the geometrical landscaped courtyard and progresses with every step, through the open-air lobby and the interwoven maze of open courtyards and private pathways filled with hidden art and animal figures waiting to be discovered. Situated beachside with a 2-hour drive from Bangkok, the resort has 77 rooms and pool villas split into two distinct styles: SO Arty and SO nature. Surprising wine and dine experiences awaits at the contemporary Thai restaurant White Oven, the playful beach club Beach Society and the rooftop bar HI-SO, while well-being experiences are offered at SoSPA and SoFIT. Meeting spaces range from So Ballroom to beachside event lawns for tailored moments. SO Sofitel Hua Hin brings the pulse to one of Thailand's most popular beach destinations, a playful yet luxurious resort to have fun and contemplate over design and art, an Imaginative Escape waiting to be explored. ... more   less
