SO Sofitel Hua Hin - Why We Love It
This vibrant and luxurious hotel from the SO Sofitel collection is called SO Sofitel Hua Hin, located in Cha-Am, Petchaburi province (At the border of Cha-Am and Hua Hin, Prachuap Khiri Khan province). As soon as you enter the entrance, guests will see the cute giant white rabbit statue in the middle of the roundabout to welcome all visitors and see them off when they leave.
After checking in, staff will take you to your room. One of the cute things about this hotel is as soon as you're at the door, you'll see a hand-written message and scribbles of hearts and critters welcoming you before entering. The hotel is very detailed about making its guests feel special.
Every room in SO Sofitel Hua Hin is very spacious with high ceilings. One of the best-selling room types is their ‘Comfy Room’. This room comes with a porch where you can sit, relax and enjoy the room’s garden with a cup of tea or coffee in your hand. The room is equipped with luxurious facilities and amenities such as a high-ceiling rain shower. You can control the water stream and temperature through the control panel. It will make you feel like you're taking a shower under your own private rain cloud. If soaking your entire body into water is more of your thing, the room also comes with a bathtub and a lidded bowl inclusive of bath salt.
For an added luxury, you can call the front desk for their bubble making service for a soaking bubble bath. Every room has two yoga mats tucked inside the wardrobe, so if you're a yoga lover, you’ve got it covered. For the music lovers, the whole room, including the bathroom, is installed with a Bose sound system so you can listen to your playlist crystal clear without missing a beat.
SO Sofitel Hua Hin has three swimming pools for you to choose from. Signature Pool is a 16 by 60-metre watery playground anchored by a Wibit inflatable water pool adventure course running down the middle of the pool and overseen by trained lifeguards, and a dedicated 5 by 5-meter shallow kid’s pool area on one end is bordered by SO Sundae poolside ice cream cafe and snack bar to ensure a splashtastic time for all.
Hiding behind stoned walls is Solarium Pool, a hidden swimming pool in the hotel spa area where you can relax and enjoy the serenity by swimming and chilling under the colourful umbrellas.
Finally, SO Pool, a beachfront pool with sunbeds and cabanas for a sunny day or a fun and playful time.
The hotel's restaurant, White Oven, is considered one of Cha-Am's best Thai cuisine eateries. Enjoy Thai seafood dishes with authentic local ingredients from the hotel's culinary team. The recommended dishes are the spicy scallop salad, steamed seabass with lime and chillies, crispy fried Som Tum with seafood and creamy Tom Yum tiger prawns. Not only that this restaurant is a good dinner choice for the evening, but it also serves international breakfast in the morning, and they have fresh fruit juices squeezed right in front of you.
Drinkers, be alerted! SO Sofitel Hua Hin has two bars, the rooftop one is called HI-SO, and the beachfront once called Beach Society where you can party in a group or alone.
While staying at SO Sofitel Hua Hin, you should try the Nayang Bat Cave Programme. The hotel works with locals to give tourists a one of a kind experience. Watching bats emerge from their cave at 6pm while dining on delicious canapés and refreshments is romantic for a young couple or educational for a family with children. If you're interested, booking in advance is preferred.
This place is vibrant. It's a mixture of fun and serenity. If you need to get away from Bangkok but don't want to travel too far, SO Sofitel Hua Hin is the perfect hotel for that occasion.
