So Sofitel Hua Hin

So Sofitel Hua Hin is a really good superior first class hotel. Highly individual design style, both in the public areas and rooms.

Nighty price from £68 per person

Description & Location

Formerly known as De La Paix, So Sofitel have brought new innovations to this attractive resort hotel. The style is minimalist and modern, with some rather delightful quirky touches, which is the signature of the So Sofitel brand. It is actually located  located on a quiet beach at Cha Am rather than in Hua Hin, about three hours drive south of Bangkok (maybe longer if you travel weekends). Cha Am village is about 5 minutes drive, and neighbouring Hua Hin about 25 minutes drive away.


So Sofitel Hua Hin has 71 Studio style rooms facing the long courtyard gardens.

You have a choice of:

So Comfy and larger So Studio. On the ground floor So Family and So Family with Kids House (A separate tent style room with bunk beds and linked to the main room).

You have two styles of room interior – Arty and Nature. Arty tend to be red in colour, a combination of contemporary and traditional with original pieces of art as a showcase. Nature tend to be green or light blue (see main image above) with a rustic wooden theme. Both are nicely spacious and attractively designed.

Also you have a selection of So Villas, which are closer to the beach. They have a walled garden with private pool, one bedroom, large lounge and separate TV room. These can be converted into Two Bedroom Family Villas by modifying the TV room.

Facilities and Activities

Two swimming pools (one adult only)
Two restaurants in differing locations
Attractive spa
Beach front with non motorised water sports
Numerous championship golf courses within a short drive


In our view, So Sofitel Hua Hin is a really good superior first class hotel that is on the cusp of becoming deluxe.

Highly individual design style, both in the public areas and rooms, brightened by a sudden splash of colour and numerous stone rabbits dotted around the gardens. We have seen the resort gradually evolve over the years, and Sofitel have brought fun and sparkle into the already attractive style. Some of the accommodation is unique, particularly the Family option with Kids House (see images above).

So Sofitel Hua Hin has appeal to couples and those with slightly older children, rather than infants.

The resort combines well with Bangkok, where we suggest the unique So Sofitel.

Note – Cha Am and Hua Hin are the preferred destinations for many of the Hi-So (High Society) residents of Bangkok. Many have their holiday homes and Condominiums in the area. This becomes particularly noticeable at weekends and public holidays when the area becomes busier than weekdays. Both resort areas have grown considerably in recent years, with many more dining options. Cha Am has several brand name factory outlets which can come as a pleasant surprise.

Another pleasant surprise might be to visit the Hua Hin winery, located about 40 minutes drive inland, with rolling green hills and a rather good red “Monsoon Valley“.
