SO Sofitel Hua Hin is a luxurious beachfront resort located on the Gulf of Thailand, approximately 2.5 hour’s drive from Bangkok. For our recent long weekend getaway to Bangkok, we decided to weave in a relaxing getaway within a getaway at SO Sofitel Hua Hin. Whether you are looking for a relaxing retreat or an action-packed adventure, SO Sofitel Hua Hin Resort has something for everyone. Follow us as we explore some of the top activities and experiences you must try at the beach resort!
SO Sofitel Hua Hin boasts a private beach that stretches over 100 meters along the Gulf of Thailand. We get to choose from a variety of water sports activities such as kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, and beach volleyball. The resort also provides sun loungers and beach umbrellas for us to just relax and soak up the sun. We also paid a small fee to bring the resort bicycles out to the beach during low tide. Cycling on the beach was definitely a first for us. It can be a little tiring but it was a good exercise to burn off our heavy breakfast. Just need to take note of the tides and cycle back before the water creeps back.
The resort has three swimming pools, each with a unique design and atmosphere. The Beach Pool, located just steps away from the beach, offers stunning views of the Gulf of Thailand.
The Solarium Pool, situated on the rooftop of the resort, provides a peaceful and serene environment for guests to relax and unwind. Being an adult-only pool, it was a great place to chill out after a relaxing spa session.
The Signature Pool, located in the heart of the resort, is perfect for families with children. We saw families spending hours navigating their way around the 47M Wibit inflatable water pool adventure course running down the middle of the 16M X 60M watery playground.
SO Sofitel Hua Hin’s award-winning SoSPA offers a variety of spa treatments, including massages, facials, and body scrubs. We reserved one of our afternoons for a pampering spa treatment.
We got to experience the quintessential spa experience combining Italian Modern Plant Chemistry™ skincare from Skin Regimen and ancient therapeutic arts with Asian wisdom products from YTSARA. The therapists are also highly trained to provide a rejuvenating and relaxing experience.
What sets their spa apart is that we got to choose our preferred scent and have our treatments in these unique futuristic pods with shimmering interior lights.
We felt as though we were having our blissful treatment right under the stars. It was a magical experience.
Folks who enjoy fitness activities can take advantage of the resort’s fully-equipped gym, which offers a variety of cardio and weight training equipment. The resort also offers yoga classes and beachfront fitness activities such as beach yoga and aqua aerobics.
SO Sofitel Hua Hin is located near several world-class golf courses, including the Banyan Golf Club and the Black Mountain Golf Club. If you love a gorgeous and challenging flight, the resort can arrange for you to play golf at these courses and provides transportation to and from the golf courses.
The resort offers several dining options which makes your stay wine and dine experience an attraction itself! The White Oven restaurant was our go-to restaurant for daily breakfast and it was seriously one of our highlights for the day!
Other than the usual American and Continental breakfast options,
the restaurant offered live stations that prepared Thai street food right before your eyes.
We also love the abundance of mango sticky rice and seasonal fruits to end the meal on a sweet note.
For lunch, White Oven serves authentic Thai cuisine if you are still hungry after the amazing breakfast.
At night, the restaurant transformed into a Thai BBQ and Hotpot paradise in the evening.
We had a relaxing evening whipping up a feast with fresh seafood, meats selection and locally sourced vegetables served with the dining sets.
We had our final night’s dinner at the Beach Society Restaurant.
Dining in the open air, right by the beach was so relaxing and romantic.
We enjoyed our cocktail and enjoyed the sea breeze while waiting for our food to arrive.
Serving an international menu, our lobster roll and burger were served right up! The food was delicious but the star of the dining experience was really the ambience and the restaurant’s ever-attentive staff. Make sure you reserve one of your evenings to dine at the beach!
If you are coming with children, you can take advantage of the resort’s kids’ club, which offers a variety of activities for children, including arts and crafts, games, and movies. The resort also has a playground and a kids’ pool right in front of the signature pool. For aspiring young golfers, the resort also has a SO Wonderland 18-Hole Adventure Golf that will offer you hours of fun bonding with your little ones.
The resort is located near several shopping areas, including the Hua Hin Night Market and the Cicada Market. These markets offer a variety of products, including clothing, souvenirs, and handicrafts.
If you are visiting Hua Hin for the first time, we recommend that you take the opportunity to explore the area. Talk to the resort to explore excursion packages which include visits to local attractions such as the Hua Hin Vineyard, the Sam Roi Yot National Park, and the Pala-U Waterfall.
In conclusion, we really enjoyed our relaxing stay at SO Sofitel Hua Hin. Whether you are looking for a relaxing retreat or an action-packed adventure, SO Sofitel Hua Hin has something for everyone.
