Debuting on Hua Hin's main beach, The Standard Hua Hin opens with the flair of a party-hard hotel brand, infusing Hollywood glam and a burst of youthful energy into this coastal haven.  Just a breezy 3.5-hour journey from Bangkok, the hotel's modernist lobby contrasts the traditional Thai aesthetic with contemporary art and mid-century furnishings. A whimsical garden beckons exploration, leading to a main wing embracing a majestic banyan tree. This poolside oasis doubles as the setting for the resort's dining gems, Lido and Praça, offering a fusion of Italian-inspired flavors and inventive Thai bites. The resort redefines Hua Hin's landscape, introducing an electrifying twist to a destination usually associated with a more mature crowd, and it promises an experience that will leave an indelible mark.

Why We Love It

♥ Iconic Design from The Standard
♥ Absolute Beachfront
♥ Luxurious Private Pool Villas
♥ LGBT Programming and Parties


Situated right on Hua Hin Beach, surrounded by other big-name resorts, even though it’s an absolute beachfront resort, it still feels like a private sanctuary. It’s only a couple of minutes walk from your room to the main road, where cafés and shops abound. When evening hits, it’s only a 20-minute walk to the night markets.

Conde Nast rated The Standard Hua Hin as the Best Resort in Southeast Asia in its 2022 awards, and we can see why. Infusing Hollywood glam and a burst of youthful energy, the resort resonates luxury and class with a chic vibe. The hotel's modernist lobby contrasts the traditional Thai aesthetic with contemporary art and mid-century furnishings. We love that it’s a pet-friendly hotel, so your favorite four-legged friend is just as welcome as you are. They’re even treated to a welcome bowl of pet ice cream on arrival!


Hua Hin is the wellness capital of Thailand, and most people visit for the spas. The Standard’s is so famous people will visit just for the day. It promises a holistic approach to uniting the mind, body, and spirit and delivers on that and then some. The DIY mud scrub will change your life! If flop and drop is what you’re after, you can lounge by the beachfront pool and sip cocktails from the Lido Bar as you watch the world go by. For food, Lido is Hua Hin’s favorite all-day Italian restaurant. The menu is seasonal and based on locally sourced ingredients. Alternatively, overlook the Andaman Sea from a Heritage House backdrop at Praça and enjoy Thai Izakaya-style dining every evening from 5 pm.


With 199 rooms, suites, and villas, you’re spoilt for choice. The Standard’s unique rooms deliver comfortable beds topped with fancy sheets; you won’t want to get out of it once you’re all tucked in. Every room has a plushy seating area and either, a rain shower or a soaking tub in the bathroom. Our pick of the rooms has to be the private pool villa. It’s 112 sqm, and you get a king-size bed, a lounge area with a daybed, a rain shower, and, of course, that plunge pool.
