Aleenta Pranburi, Hua Hin

aleenta overview Aleenta Pranburi, Hua Hin

Description and Location
Aleenta Pranburi isone of the very first genuinely boutique hotels in the region, located about 35 minutes drive out of Hua Hin, in a quiet secluded area, just under 3 hours drive from Bangkok Airport. The style here is elegantly casual, with the emphasis on simple relaxation.

Accommodation
The 20 deluxe rooms and suites have a Mediterranean influence, and are all sea facing, with many just yards from the extensive beach. We particularly like the Rondavel shaped beach rooms with their private plunge pool. In keeping with the style of the resort, each room has an eclectic design. 15 of the rooms are in the main hotel, with a further 5 set in the separate Frangipani wing 500 yards along the beach.

Facilities and Activities
Facilities include elevated restaurant specialising in Asian cuisine, small swimming pool and spa. As the resort is mainly couples -romance focused, the main hotel does not accept children although they are accepted at the Frangipani wing.

Chic Check – Aleenta Pranburi is delightfully non-corporate, the appeal is to overworked executives who spend their lives in luxurious but nondescript hotels and are looking for something more individual and unique. Intentionally, the rooms do not have TV, but do have yoga mats and iPods! The beach is fantastic, over a mile of soft sand and generally clear waters. It is wonderfully simple, stripped down elegance, with an eco- conscience, yet without compromising your comfort.

In recent years this area has seen some villa development, mainly from Bangkok “Hi-So” (high society), but the charm is still calm and totally chilled. You just kick back and relax. You do now have a couple of restaurant options close to Aleenta which actually rather adds to the appeal. It does make a unique retreat for a few days after a tour around the region.
