Khao Takiab (Chopstick Mountain) is the large hill located at the southern end of the main Hua Hin beach. If you can drag yourself away from the beach and your legs are up to it, a visit to Khao Takiab will reward you with some beautiful views. Hotels such as Wora Bura and Let’s Sea are approximately 5kms away from Hua Hin city centre, but just 1km from Khao Takiab. There may be less to do here in the evening compared to the centre of Hua Hin, but this area is home to some lovely beach-side restaurants and bars and if you do want to go into town it’s easy enough to arrange a tuk-tuk.
Wora Bura Resort & Spa
Designed as a Thai village with historical features, all of the suites and villas at Wora Bura are named and themed after Thai provinces. The hotel is 1km from Khao Takiab and approximately 6km from the Night Market in central Hua Hin. A hotel shuttle bus together with local tuk-tuks mean that getting into Hua Hin town is easy and so gives guests the best of both worlds allowing you to stay in a quieter area and yet not be completely isolated. Facilities at Wora Bura include two restaurants, a swimming pool, business centre and a kids’ club.
Let’s Sea Al Fresco
Let’s Sea is a unique boutique hotel which exudes luxury. All rooms feature separate his and hers rain-showers, over-sized bath tubs, mood lighting and ultra-comfortable beds. The rooms are cleverly arranged on two tiers around the 120-metre long swimming pool. The 20 Studio Pier rooms include a spacious terrace and decking area with your own personal pier for access to the pool. It really is a case of stepping from your room onto your balcony and within a few steps you can be in the pool. The upper tier Moon Deck Suites also offer convenient access to the pool and as a bonus feature a private roof terrace with decking and comfortable seats. Let’s Sea Al Fresco is located midway between Hua Hin and Khao Takiab.
