Carlson Rezidor has opened the doors of its new Radisson Blu Resort Hua Hin property in Thailand, located approximately two hours’ drive from the capital Bangkok and featuring a total of 118 rooms and suites.
The beachfront hotel overlooks the Gulf of Thailand in the resort town of Hua Hin, which has long functioned as a getaway for Bangkok residents. “Hua Hin has long been favoured by Thai royalty as a preferred summer retreat,” said the hotel’s general manager, Preet Inder Singh. “With its laidback but sophisticated feel, the resort offers a holistic getaway from the bustling capital city of Bangkok, satisfying the needs of the discerning traveller while offering a connection to the local community.”
This focus on relaxation is evident in the hotel’s room set-up – 22 of the hotel’s 118 guestrooms are Deluxe Pool rooms, offering guests direct access to the water from their private accommodation. Meanwhile, many of the hotel’s rooms have views of the gulf.
In total, the new Radisson Blu has three swimming pools along with offering sea-based water sports. Additional recreational activities, including golf, vineyard tours and the property’s Spa Esc, are also available, and beachfront dining can be enjoyed at The Ivy grill and pool bar. The Exchange, meanwhile, offers international cuisine and features organic Thai dishes using herbs and spices from the resort’s on-site garden. Guests can also dine at the Lounge, which offers a selection of premium wines, beers and an extensive whisky selection.
Corporate groups can also make use of the property’s four function spaces, including the 200-sqm Aqua Ballroom, which can cater to up to 240 guests in a cocktail setting. “The resort appeals to Thai and international guests arriving from Bangkok, as well as those booking a vacation or special event from further afield,” added Singh.
The opening of the resort is the latest in a string of new hotel announcements and openings from Radisson Blu in recent months, including the recently refurbished Radisson Blu Lyon and the opening of the brand’s 29th property in India, the Radisson Blu Resort and Spa Karjat.
