The décor of the resort is influenced by Hua Hin’s fishing village history.

Guests have their choice of rooms or suites; each designed specially to accommodate their needs and company. While relaxing in your room, perhaps utilizing the hotels free Wi-Fi, you can soak in the expansive view of the sea and Hua Hin’s tranquil hills.

You can relax with a cocktail at the Pool Bar as you alternate between the Jacuzzi and the infinity pools, dine at the hotel’s Plamong Restaurant, and afterwards enjoy breath-taking panoramic views of the city and sea from Vana Nava Sky located on the top floor.
The Sky Bar was the newest addition to the resort and is decorated by world-renowned designer Ashley Sutton. The drink menu offers tantalizing choices of original cocktails created by global ‘Mixultant’ Joseph Boroski. Right outside the bar is the glass-bottomed Vana Nava Sky Deck, extending beyond the hotel’s rooftop and providing an exhilarating view of the Gulf of Thailand, Hua Hin and the surrounding countryside.
As for your little ones, they might want to run wild at Bryde’s Kids Club. Named after the endangered Bryde’s whales that inhabit the Gulf of Thailand, it is the largest Kids Club in Hua Hin. Creatively designed in a pirate theme, there are five zones filled with engaging activities such as arts and crafts, children’s aerobics, and even a pirate ship with ball pit.
