Holiday Inn Vana Nava Hua Hin Grand Opening was held on the evening of 24 February 2018. We were thrilled to be invited to attend this glittering grand opening ceremony together with 400 guests, including many celebrities and VIPs. Holiday Inn Vana Nava Hua Hin, Asia’s first Holiday Inn Water Park Resort is set spectacularly on Thailand’s Gulf coast, conveniently served by two international airports and just a quick 2.5 hours’ drive from Bangkok. Located just next to the Vana Nava Water Jungle, Holiday Inn Vana Nava Hua Hin is well-positioned to offer all types of stays, from fun-filled playcations to couples’ breaks, family holidays and unique business events!
Holiday Inn Vana Nava Hua Hin Grand Opening performances were followed by an extravagant 9 minutes firework display that lit up Hua Hin’s night sky. Being able to catch the gorgeous sight from the resort’s towering Sky Deck was an unforgettable experience.
“We are delighted to celebrate Holiday Inn Vana Nava Hua Hin Grand Opening in such spectacular style,” said Franck Rodriguez, the resort’s General Manager. “We are proud to set a new quality benchmark with a fully-integrated hospitality offering extensive facilities, cutting-edge technology and breath-taking views over the Gulf of Thailand.”
Holiday Inn Vana Nava Hua Hin Grand Opening – The Vana Nava Hua Hin Project
The resort is not a standalone development. Holiday Inn Vana Nava Hua Hin is part of a larger mixed-use development that is Vana Nava Hua Hin and located right next to Vana Nava Hua Hin Water Jungle. With 20 world class slides and attractions, the waterpark first opened its doors in 2014 with overwhelming success and has welcomed close to a million visitors since. It is definitely one of the biggest names in waterparks in Thailand.The project will also feature premium residences which are expected to be launched later this year. To ensure seamless connection and experience for customers across this massive project, the unique RFID Technology was introduced. This handy RFID wristband can be used to unlock hotel rooms, access the waterpark and pay for food and entertainment within the entire development. How convenient is that!
Proud Real Estate Executive Director Proudputh Liptapanlop said: “Hua Hin has long been a beloved destination among the Thai aristocrats and high society since the 1920s when it was hand-picked to be the first resort town of Thailand by H.M. King Rama VI. Because of its sandy white beaches along with stunning mountainscape, its long history and its charms and heritage as a seaside fishing village, Hua Hin over the years has attracted many tourists both Thai and International. Now with the addition of a truly integrated resort-entertainment like Vana Nava Hua Hin, we are confident that Hua Hin will be able to attract even more visitors and establish its credentials as a leading resort destination worldwide.”
