The 'Thailand Small Hotels' series recommends to readers small hotels where the number of guestrooms does not exceed 60. The series also places an emphasis the on architectural and interior design of the hotel. We believe that the philosophy of being small means we are able to create an intimate atmosphere and be in touch with the hidden beauty in the comfort and convenience of the accommodation. Furthermore, it also helps visitors to experience the sensual art of local living in order to truly fulfil their holiday experience. The upper southern region of Thailand is comprised of three famous coastal holiday districts located along the Gulf of Thailand: namely Hua Hin, Pranburi, and Cha-am. The province of Prachuap Khiri Khan hosts Hua Hin and Pranburi, while Phetchaburi boasts Cha-am as its famous beach resort. In the past, Hua Hin was recognised among Thais as a holiday sanctuary for the aristocracy seeking an escape from Bangkok's summer heat. The name Hua Hin was prompted by the area's topography, which is made up of rows of stone hillocks lying along the fine beach. With a growing reputation, Hua Hin became even better known with the opening of the southern railway line and its associated infrastructure, which was followed by a 5-star hotel and a golf course. The prosperity of the area then peaked when the King Prajadhipok, Rama VII, commissioned the contraction of a summer palace, which he named 'Wang Klai Kangwo'. As a result, members of the royal family and other nobles increasingly spent time at Hua Hin, building their own holiday homes there. Today, Hua Hin is a renowned destination among tourists for its white sand, serene beach atmosphere, and safe swimming conditions. It is also only a short distance from Bangkok and is easily reached by road, rail, or air.
