Opened in 2009, this beautiful InterContinental offers perfectly expressed resort luxury in Hua Hin, a tranquil seaside town long favored by Thailand’s royalty and social elite.

Perched on a choice stretch of beach, the resort’s bold design and classic East Asian- inspired décor epitomizes the confident yet serene luxury for which Hua Hin is known. Throughout the hotel, public spaces and 119 accommodations are adorned with intri- cate stencil works modeled after King Rama VI’s lavish Mrigadayawan Summer Palace. Among six room types, the two-story La Résidence Hua Hin private villa, which can be transformed into a distinctive wedding chapel, offers the ultimate five-star stay. All rooms are equipped with the latest technology, an oversized daybed and balcony, and the resort’s state-of-the-art facilities include an on-site spa, fitness center, swimming pool, kid’s club and more.
