Holiday Inn Vana Nava Hua Hin – Best Resort To Stay In Hua Hin Thailand

Not known to many, Hua Hin has always been a beloved destination among Thai royalties and aristocrats when it was chosen by H.M. King Rama VI to be the first resort town of Thailand. We have long wanted to visit this popular seaside town along the beautiful Gulf of Thailand. Hence Holiday Inn Vana Nava Hua Hin invitation to its Grand Opening was a godsend! Once we touched down at Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport, Holiday Inn Vana Nava Hua Hin is just a quick two and a half hours’ drive away. We are here to share why Holiday Inn Vana Nava Hua Hin is the best resort to stay in Hua Hin Thailand for your perfect couple or family weekend getaway!

Holiday Inn Vana Nava Hua Hin – Location, Location, Location

Set spectacularly on Thailand’s Gulf coast, Holiday Inn Vana Nava Hua Hin is served by two international airports and as we just mentioned in our introduction – a short 2.5 hours’ drive from Bangkok hence making it the perfect resort for all types of stays, from fun-filled playcations to couples’ breaks, family holidays and unique business events.

Overlooking the whole of Hua Hin with no other major developments obstructing its view, the 27-storey resort is a new landmark for Hua Hin and is conveniently located right next to the 3.2 hectares Nava Vana Water Park. Although the resort does not have direct beach access, it provides regular shuttles to Bluport mall, True Arena sports complex, Hotel InterContinenal and the town centre. It is also just a stone throw away from the famous Cicada Night Market.

Folks in Malaysia will be happy to know that AirAsia will begin direct flights to this beach town from Kuala Lumpur four times a week from May 2018.

Holiday Inn Vana Nava Hua Hin – Accommodations & Theme

Holiday Inn Vana Nava Hua Hin packs a whopping 300 rooms and suites, including a series of inter-connecting rooms and KidSuites®, with special ‘secret’ rooms decked out with bunk beds and play areas. The entire hotel is decked out in a marine theme with fish motifs that runs through the resort.  

We adore our room’s cosy ambience. The warm orange glow of the lamps and school of fish painting right above the bed was really welcoming.  

The design of the bathroom was rather thoughtful. Depending on your personal preference, you can choose to have direct visual access to the bath or keep the space intimate with a movable panel. 

If you think our room was amazing, wait till you see their suites. We fall in love with the generous space and gorgeous view the moment we stepped in! The suite comprises of a distinct living area with a sliding door that opens up to the bedroom. 

Again, space is very configurable. This is the view of the living area and balcony from the bed.

You will be thrilled to know that children aged 12 and under can stay and eat for free. You also get to enjoy free Wi-Fi throughout your stay!

Holiday Inn Vana Nava Hua Hin – Fuss Free Payment & Unlimited Fun Access

One of the perks of staying at this resort is that you are located right next to Hua Hin’s most popular attraction – Vana Nava Hua Hin Water Jungle

With its sheer number of rides, you can practically stay the entire day or two at this water theme park! We bet you will scream in delight when you know that you get unlimited access to the water park!

All guest at Holiday Inn Vana Nava Hua Hin enjoys unlimited access to the water theme park. This is done through the unique RFID wristband issued when you check in to your room.  This definitely provides value for families given that an adult ticket already costs around 1,200 baht (SGD$50) per day and 800 baht (SGD$33) for kids.

This handy wristband ensures a seamless customer experience as it allows you to unlock hotel rooms, access the waterpark and pay for food and entertainment within the compound. There is no need to carry any key card or money with you wherever you go. 

Holiday Inn Vana Nava Hua Hin – Facilities

When you are not playing in the Vana Nava Hua Hin Water Jungle, you and your loved ones can unwind in the resort’s own extensive facilities. Fitness folks can work up a sweat at the 24 hours fitness centre or you can also choose to dip into or get a tan at the dramatic 26th-floor infinity pool. 

Commanding more than 180 degrees of the Hua Hin countryside, you can just spend a lazy afternoon soaking in the waters. 

We recommend that you come back in the evening to take in Hua Hin night skyline too. 

Alternatively, you can also spend a pampering afternoon at Tea Tree Spa. 

If you are here with your family, rest assured that your children will be happily looked after at the Kids’ Club. Kids of any age will be treated to candy floss and pop corn made on the spot! 

You can choose bond with your little ones over high tech console games

or just good old playground. 

Holiday Inn Vana Nava Hua Hin – Dining Options

There are loads of dining options for your pick at the resort. We choose to start our day with a hearty breakfast at Plamong Restaurant. 

It is a bright and bustling space to enjoy the good breakfast spread consisting of both local and international breakfast delicacies, alongside vistas of the surroundings.

For lunch and dinner, you can go for Vana Nava Sky restaurant on the topmost 27th floor. There is an observation deck with a dramatic glass-bottomed deck that extends 110m above ground.

Many are attracted by the views of the setting sun, walked halfway across the deck before realising they could see the ground below and hastily retreats. Definitely not for folks with fear of heights. 

Folks who preferred a more private dining experience can also opt for room service like us!

You can savour your meal in absolute privacy while taking in the view from your balcony. 

Overall, we really enjoyed our stay at Holiday Inn Vana Nava Hua Hin. The rooms were gorgeous, facilities were top-notch, food was outstanding and the service was impeccable. We encourage everyone to venture out of our comfortable Bangkok city and experience all that Hua Hin has to offer.
