Hua Hin & Cha Am are opposite sides of the same coin. Both are examples of how the regular visitors to an area can completely change the atmosphere and general impression of the place. Situated incredibly close together, the coastal towns share the same view of the ocean yet they feel a million miles apart.
Hua Hin was the favourite holiday destination of Thai King Rama VII in the 1920s. He was followed by the rest of the nobility and soon Hua Hin had made a reputation of being a very wealthy area for itself. This sense of class has carried on to this day and Hua Hin is still recognised as a favourite getaway spot for the Thai upper and middle classes. Cha Am on the other hand is known as the working class, hard partying alternative to its affluent neighbour. This isn’t to say that one is better than the other by any means, just that each town has a very different target audience.
The first step in choosing which of our selection of the very best Hua Hin & Cha Am hotels that we have to offer, is to decide which town is most suited to the type of holiday you are planning. Hua Hin is a very cosmopolitan area, described as “the perfect blend of the city and the sea.” The main activities involve shopping in the markets, eating the delicious local seafood and of course, relaxing on the beach. Cha Am is also a beach town, except you are much less likely to spend your time on a Cha Am beach relaxing, as the town is famous for hosting some of the best beach parties in the whole of Thailand, including jet-ski towed banana boat rides.
If you are looking for cheap hotels you would be best looking at some of the amazing selections in Cha Am, where luxury is available for next to nothing. A perfect example would be the Holiday Inn Resort Regent Beach, 40 acres of pure luxury right next door to the party, or the Courtyard by Marriott, part of one of the world’s most famous hotel chains and if you want to stay in a beach hotel and never leave the party, the best bet is The Hotel Cha Am .
If the more relaxed Hua Hin is more up your street then we recommend looking into the Sofitel Centara Grand Resort & Villas, one of the world’s highest rated beach hotels or the Anantara Resort & Spa, a beautifully classic example of Thai architecture that screams class.
