The Wyndham Hua Hin Pranburi Resort & Villas: Beachside Leisure In Thai Tranquility

Wyndham Resort Hua Hin

Hua Hin, Thailand is a calm beach city on the northern edge of the Malay Peninsula. A refuge from the noisy nightlife of Phuket or Pattaya, and the teeming sprawl of Bangkok, Hua Hin is the preference of expat retirees, Scandinavian vacationers, weekend Thai visitors, and for a time, the royal family. Some 66,000 residents call the city home. Hua Hin is known for its diverse night market, fishing boats, and railroad access. It sits three hours north of Bangkok, and five from Jomtien by bus. Whether you are touring the town solo, or with family, the Wyndham Hua Hin Pranburi Resort & Villas fits the bill. This secluded beachside property sprawls across 20 acres, providing guests with a sense of privacy and a connection to nature. Accommodations vary from private pool villas to large garden studios which sleep four adults. Families will also enjoy the Club Wyndham Asia, and there is a Kids' Club.

The Wyndham is the place for the active family, though the setting whispers "chill". Guests may traverse the establishment via bicycle, and there are tennis courts, a basketball area, an archery range, skate park, billiard table, the ever-popular pickleball, and beach volleyball. Sip a cocktail or enjoy lunch by the infinity pool, or bask in the day spa. This Wyndham has something for everyone, or the daily mood of each guest. Because the deisgn of the grounds and paths offer so many directions for exploration, one never feels the presence of a crowd.

Hungry from all that activity? The seating restaurant is open from 7 a.m. to 10:30 p.m., and the buffet breakfast option features station cooks, e.g. for omelets. At The Pavillion, guests may order refreshing cocktails or savory snacks. Only the buffet is enclosed, and even it has some outdoor seating. The staff is attentive but not intrusive. Dinner choices include salmon or Australian lamb chops as Western fare, and Som Tam (papaya salad), crab curry, or pineapple fried rice as traditionals. There are many other Thai dishes ranging from prawns to pork to Pad Krapow. Top everything off with the homemade ice cream, or if you have room, the chocloate lava cake.

The Wyndham Hua Hin Pranburi leaves no hospitality stone unturned, and you'll want to extend your peaceful, recreational stay as long as possible.
