Formerly the Hua Hin Railway Hotel, one of the classic hotels of the East, the Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas Hua Hin was constructed in 1923 and has fully retained its old-world charm. Centara Hotels & Resorts acquired the lovely old property in 1985, and with every sensitivity towards its original elegance has extended and upgraded the hotel, which stands on 16 hectares of beachfront land amongst topiary gardens that are one of the great local landmarks.
Amenities & Services
With its location on the beachfront, the hotel is perfect for swimming and boating, and just for lazing on the beach. Two putting greens, four swimming pools, two tennis courts, a snooker room, badminton, table tennis and a Fitness Centre offer superb opportunities for leisure and keeping fit, and there is a children’s playground and other facilities for the youngsters. It was the building of the railway line that spurred the development of the little fishing village of Hua Hin into a playground for Thailand’s aristocracy in the 1920s. The Royal Hua Hin Golf Course opened in the same year as the Railway Hotel, and has in recent years been joined by several other international standard courses, making the little town a prime destination for golfers.
With the spacious tropical gardens forming a backdrop, SPA Cenvaree offers a full range of luxurious massage and body treatments combining ancient Asian therapies with modern technology that detoxifies and re-mineralises the body and soothes the mind.
