Best In Class For Pool Villa

Been there for 3 days , enjoy every detail of the hotel. The room is nice and big ,esp. The bathroom. Also the jacuzzi pool is impressive . Free mini bar. I think it is best place if you want to find privacy space and relax atmosphere.The staff is very welcoming. I will be looking forward to revisit it in the future !!!

Nice and tranquil

Very nice hotel! Friendly staff. Especially Mr Arnupap Thipayarat, Duty Manager. Good breakfast with a variety of choices cooked by the chef. Small but nice beach.......... Had a room in the main building with nice balcony. The villas with private pool looked cosy and luxurious. Overall a wonderful stay.

All-in-one resort for leisure stay or destination wedding

The Palayana in Hua Hin was discovered by my niece who went venue hunting with her fiancee for their wedding last summer. After crossing the length and breadth of Thailand, they found this gem of a resort nestled between two much larger properties, the Sheraton Hua Hin and the Radisson Blu resort. I stayed at The Palayana for three nights in late December 2017. Three of us old college buddies with our wives were in a three-roomed pool villa, V 11, which was very close to the breakfast area, the pool as well as the beach. They have 60 rooms which are spacious and very well appointed, the bathrooms are mammoth with an adjoining dresser area. Each villa has its own kitchen which we shared, mainly for making tea or coffee. The lounge area on the first floor had its own swimming pool as well as deck chairs and day beds to lounge in. Buggies are available for elders or those who have difficulty in walking, although the walk on the curving paths through the trees was extremely pleasant, both during the day as well as after dark, with subtle illumination along the pathway. The breakfast was sumptuous, with an array of usual breakfast fare. However, the cappuccino was exceptional. My wife tells me that the spa is good too. Service was good and the Sales Manager was present for a few days to help coordinate the group of 120 of us who spread ourselves thin all over the resort for the wedding. The canopy built of the edge of the beach for the wedding was beautiful and surreal as the entire wedding rituals was windswept with the gentle sea breeze during twilight and the setting sun never looked better. Getting there takes about 3 hours from Bangkok city, by the highway. I recommedn this hidden gem for all Thailand lovers, who have been there and done that. You haven't done The Palayana yet. Go.

The Palayana-One bed room Villa

The villa was great, we've enjoyed our time there, would definitely head back there next time if go to Hua Hin! everything was just great! I've mention it was our anniversary and the staff member remembers it! they decorated the room which made it very sweet for us! Nevertheless, only a few steps away from the beach! The location is great! and the staff members were kind! The rooms were clean as well! See you next time Palayana!

“A little luxury on our beach break.”

The buffet breakfasts were excellent...a wide variety and good quality. The staff were superb - always welcoming, available and happy to help with anything. I could not fault anyone in any way at all.

Another lovely stay

We stayed her as a family of five with three kids for a week in December, our second visit to this hotel and it made us fall in love with the place even more. Palayana is a wonderfully small, intimate, calm and friendly resort where you can really relax and enjoy yourself. The peace at this resort just makes you relax. We stayed in the hotel rooms but the villas looked great too. The food at the restaurant is some of the best we have eaten in Thailand. We cannot wait to return and our three little kids were sad to leave too.

I had mt wedding at the Palayana in december 2017, and WHAT AN AMAZING 3 DAY EVENT THEY PULLED OFF!! the professionalism, the food, the hospitality, the attention to detail, and the property--they deserve nothing less than 7 stars! I have worked specifically and very closely with Andy, Sumeet and Pisan-what incredible individuals, who I am now proud to call my friends and family! I would recommend this property with my eyes closed!!

Thank you for giving us such a wonderful memory!

We enjoyed staying at Palayana so much. Everything (such as food, staff, etc.) at the resort is great, we love it so badly that we didn't want to go home. The resort is around 20 mins drive from the night market or the mall, which the reception can help to reserve a taxi as per your request. We love the new year fireworks as we never thought of watching fireworks for New Year in Thailand before and this is the best thing to start 2018. Thank you for giving us such a great memory.
