It was our first stay in a So Sofitel, but not our first stay in Thailand. We are AccorPlus Platinum members. The 6-night-stay in this hotel was beyond amazing, and I fear it will be difficult to put it all in words, so I will focus on a few aspects which I think draw a conclusive picture.

First impression are Good and friendly services. Breakfast is OK and dinner is reasonable price. However, you have to concern in you are a bit lazy because there are no lift and distance from parking is needed to walk. Overall is good and I'm OK to come back here again.

After several days in Bangkok I was happy to escape to the quiet of this resort. The entrance was dramatic in a fun way. The rooms were interesting and comfortable. I personally loved the giant rain shower in the bathroom. The beach was small but still plenty of room for everyone. I never felt crowded. The breakfast was a very...

The hotel is well appointed with 2 good swimming pools, its own private beach, 2 restaurants and beach bar. The bedrooms are a good size with with a big ensuite bath and shower room. The staff are undoubtedly the best we have ever experienced in any of the many hotels that we have stayed in around the world.

The location is nice and quiet, perfect for a peaceful break. An attentive team, the rooms are well appointed and large. Two pools and two very good restaurants. There is a sense of home here as they look into different aspects from kids to adults, from sports to films and more.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
SO Sofitel Hua Hin is an artistic adventure though the Evolution of Life, designed by award winning architects, designers and enhanced with signature fashion designer, Polpat Asavaprapha. The journey unfolds at the moment of arrival at the geometrical landscaped courtyard and progresses with every step, through the open-air lobby and the interwoven maze of open courtyards and private pathways filled with hidden art and animal figures waiting to be discovered. Situated beachside with a two and a half hours' drive from Bangkok and 30 minutes' drive from, the resort has 78 rooms and pool villas split into two distinct styles: SO Arty and SO Nature. Surprising wine and dine experiences awaits at the contemporary Thai restaurant White Oven, the playful beach club Beach Society and the rooftop bar HI-SO, while well-being experiences are offered at SoSPA and SoFIT. Meeting spaces range from So Ballroom to beachside event lawns for tailored moments. SO Sofitel Hua Hin brings the pulse to one of Thailand's most popular beach destinations, a playful yet luxurious resort to have fun and contemplate over design and art, an Imaginative Escape waiting to be explored. ... more   less
