April Focus: The Palayana
Hua Hin and adjacent Cha Am are rightly regarded as among Thailand’s premier coastal resort communities. Alongside the shimmering waters of the Gulf of Thailand, the area offers white-sand beaches and lush tropical hills that make for an enchanting holiday destination. Yet popularity can, of course, have its drawbacks. With more and more development on limited coastline, beachgoers and holidaymakers can begin to feel hemmed in.

At The Palayana Boutique Resort Hua Hin, however, guests experience just the opposite. In fact, a room here really does mean room to roam.

Extending across 1.3 hectares, this low-rise resort encompasses not only outstanding accommodation and facilities but also abundant greenery and majestic trees for a genuine tropical oasis setting.

Distinguishing The Palayana from many other nearby hotels is its 40m stretch of private beachfront. One may find this rare to the area where other hotels were built utilizing maximum space; hence leaving nearby hotels with little to no usable beach at high tide or no beach at all. The Palayana ensures guests have more than enough space for relaxing on the beach and fun activities.

A stay at The Palayana is more just a stay. With experiences ranging from superb accommodation to the variety of dining choices, to recreational activities to just true relaxation there is something for everyone; and all are found within easy reach.

Accommodation at The Palayana affords a feeling of true comfort, whether guests are enjoying a weekend getaway or staying long term.

The resort’s 23 rooms, 6 suites and 11 villas provide all guests with plush furnishings, elegant décor, in addition to generous living space. Indeed, having plenty of space to fully relax – and at rates unrivalled in Hua Hin – defines The Palayana experience.

Among the room features are sizeable balconies with garden and sea views, ample closet space and luggage areas, large sofas, big bathtubs, and oversized seven-foot mattresses.

Other guest room amenities include Bose sound system, illy coffee machine, luxury Panpuri bathroom amenities and more.

In addition to the above, villas at The Palayana include an expansive sala/pavilion as well as swimming pool for private outdoor relaxation. Inside, villa guests enjoy the utmost convenience with their own kitchen, dining and lounging areas.

Wake up to see beautiful ocean views right from the bed is the best way to recharge.

Part of The Palayana Institute of Healing Arts, Yana Spa is integral to what is in fact a resort-wide focus on holistic health and well-being. Spa treatments and therapies have been designed by Panpuri to balance all the senses and are administered by Panburi professionals well trained in the healing arts. Every spa journey commences with the gentle sound of a singing bowl to promote a state of deep relaxation, before therapists then guide spa guests towards total mind and body harmony.

Yana Spa facilities comprise four treatment rooms and one steam room amid traditional Thai décor and soothing natural surroundings. Guests can also enjoy spa services including Thai massage right on the beach.
