This hotel is located out of nowhere which is good if you need a break and out of city lives which i think it is the main things why they built this hotel. This hotel was in Cha-Am not Hua Hin as drive to Hua Hin will take you more than 30mins. The service and people of this hotel was... More

We checked in this hotel in the middle of September this year. We were impressed with the level of service right from our check in. We were served a cold Thai herbal drink, which gave an impression of a hot drink when they served, while we were waiting for the check-in process to complete. The room is nicely decorated with...

We had a pool villa on the beach for six nights and throughly enjoyed it. It seems none of the guests stay at the resort during the day so if you do decide to venture to the adult pool or one of the restaurants, you basically have the place to yourself. The Thai food at White Oven is VERY good.... More

I'd like to give this place a better review but I just can't do it. The staff mostly were friendly and helpful but the place was deserted, maybe we picked the wrong time of year but even so, with nobody around the place is just soulless and boring.

This property is amazing! Right on its very own private beach, it is located about 40 mins drive to the centre of Hua Hin, however it is worth the distance to have the seclusion.

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
