About The Standard, Hua Hin:
Hua Hin has been a beloved beach getaway for over a hundred years, dating back to the construction of the railroad connecting the bustling metropolis of Bangkok with this dreamy seaside town. By the mid-1920s, it became the chosen holiday retreat for Thai nobility drawn to the undiscovered pristine coastline. Over time, this sleepy fishing village transformed into a popular coastal destination while maintaining its old-world charm and natural beauty. This beach town has been even further awakened with the arrival of The Standard, Hua Hin. The property was awarded as one of the best hotels in the world in Conde Nast Traveler's 2022 Hot List, as the only hotel listed in Thailand, and was voted the #1 resort in Southeast Asia. The Standard, Hua Hin was also voted the #7 best resort in Asia and the #35 resort in the world in The Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards 2022. This seaside retreat is nestled in a lush garden dreamscape with native flora and greenery, just steps from the Gulf of Thailand. The colorful collection of 199 rooms, suites and villas is complemented by an innovative spa program seamlessly paired with a lively and vibrant pool scene, and a variety of drinking and dining options to suit every taste. There’s the Lido restaurant and bar for all-day indoor or al fresco dining, elixirs and fresh pressed juices at The Juice Café, and the impeccably restored Heritage House, Praça, for authentic Thai food and craft cocktails in an unparalleled setting.
