Where modern comfort meets legendary charm

Featuring 322 rooms that combine modern design and Thai Colonial features, the resort is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities located within the serene seaside town of Hua Hin.

Hua Hin Marriott Resort & Spa located beachfront with 8.7 acres of land and access to the town center. The 322-room property has been designed to address the needs of modern travellers by fusing accessibility with impressive aesthetics. Inspired by the “Marriott Modern” design philosophy, the new hotel provides a unique appeal and excitement. Renowned brand hospitality is instantly felt in the spacious Greatroom while the deluxe rooms boast sweeping views of the sea and direct access to the lagoon shaped swimming pool looped around the resort. There is also an adults-only swimming pool for those looking for privacy. Extensive kids’ activities are offered at the beach front Kid’s Club, kid’s pool, water slide and tree house.

Mr. Karl Hudson, Area Vice President-Thailand, Vietnam, Philippines, Cambodia & Japan, talked about Marriott International’s expansion in Thailand at the opening, “We are delighted to open our doors and welcome guests to Hua Hin’s first Marriott Hotels branded hotel. Marriott International signed agreements with TCC Land Asset World in 2013 to manage seven new hotels across Thailand. Three properties are scheduled to open this year and Hua Hin Marriott Resort & Spa is the first to debut.”

“Hua Hin is a famous vacation getaway for both local and international travelers. Demand from inbound travel from Thai residents has been strong and we see the number of foreign visitors increasing, at 5.63% year over year. Hua Hin has a lot of potential as it offers various activities and attractions, and it is merely 200km from Bangkok. The introduction of Hua Hin Marriott Resort & Spa will increase the city’s accommodation to 2,341 rooms.” Mr. Hudson added.

At Hua Hin Marriott Resort & Spa, guests can enjoy a myriad of local and international culinary delights at five food and beverage outlets: Amber Kitchen is an all-day-dining restaurant offering Thai and international cuisine. Big Fish & Bar located by the beach with stunning views of the ocean, features signature grill and seafood.
