Nestled on the Gulf of Siam, Sheraton Hua Hin Resort & Spa offers deluxe accommodations, ocean views and a location in Hua Hin Thailand’s premier beach community owned by Grande Asset Development Public Company Limited.

The resort aims to offer warm, personalized service and comforting amenities.

“Blending old world charm with modern comforts, the Sheraton Hua Hin Resort & Spa is a choice addition to the Sheraton resort portfolio,” said Wayne Buckingham, regional vice president, Starwood Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia. “As Thailand’s oldest, most prestigious beach town and the home of the summer palace for Thailand’s royal family, the historic fishing village of Hua Hin is now an exclusive vacation retreat for Bangkok’s elite, offering visitors a variety of peaks, caves and waterfalls, as well as a wide selection of top-notch seafood restaurants, adventure excursions and golf courses.”

The property features wood tones and warm, bright colors characteristic of modern Thai design. The 240 rooms of the resort are in nine buildings that surround a lagoon-style swimming pool.

All deluxe guestrooms offer a private garden, balcony or direct access to the pool, as well as the signature Sheraton Sweet Sleeper Bed, a 32” LCD television and a spacious bathroom with full-length mirrors, separate bathtub and shower.

The resort’s 12 suites are located closes to the beach and overlook the Gulf of Siam, with 37” plasma televisions, DVD players, walk-in closets with silk bathrobes and Bvlgari bathroom amenities.

Wireless high-speed Internet access is also available throughout the resort.

Five restaurants and bars are on site, serving meals from Pan-Asian cuisine to international items.

Over 2,600 feet of meeting and function space are also offered by the resort for events from meetings to wedding receptions of up to 500 guests. Additional facilites include a fitness center, two tennis courts, a kid’s club and the Aspadeva Spa, as well as proximity to golf courses.
