With 10 days to spare in Thailand, Bangkok, Shawn and I decided to make a trip to Hua Hin. About 3-4 hours by train/bus from Bangkok, Hua Hin offers travellers a respite from the boisterous crowds of Bangkok.
As a working young couple, we wanted to make our trip to Hua Hin a retreat with a relax itinerary, away from crowd. We decided on Haven Resort Hua Hin and couldn’t be anymore pleased with our choice! Here’s why we think Haven Resort Hua Hin is a ideal place to stay for couples!
1) Peaceful location
Known for its beautiful beaches and nature reserve, Hua Hin is a great place for travellers looking for a scenic getaway. However, as more people flock to this tourist destination, quiet spots are becoming scarce.
Located just 15 minutes drive away from the main city area, Haven Resort Hua Hin is situated in a peaceful spot at the beach. The private beach is well cleaned and maintained by the staff at the resort and is well tucked away from the main roads, hidden from touristy crowds. We found this to be an ideal place for a quiet romantic holiday with your loved one!
2) Gorgeously romantic villas
Haven Resort Hua Hin’s villas are a wonderful location for couples looking for some together-time. Each of the nature themed villas boasts a comfy king-sized bed overlooking a private pool, rooftops for sunbathing, large spacious bathrooms (a separate room for the toilet, shower, dressing table and bathtub EACH) and a HUGE baththub that Shawn and I can both fit in comfortably together!
We liked the villa so much that we actually felt that we had spent too much time within :p
Speaking of spending too much time in the villa, a significant portion of it was spent lazing around in bed. It was so comfy we overslept and almost missed breakfast after our first night. Which brings us to our next point…
3) Amazing staff service
Having overslept on our first night in Haven Resort Hua Hin, we were awoken by a phone call around 10.15am. It appears that the restaurant manager (I think) noticed that we had not taken our breakfast and decided to give us a call to see if we still wanted to have ours! That was the first time any hotel or resort had given us a call for that reason and it certainly left us with a good lasting impression. So upon getting the phone call, we zipped by the restaurant for a quick brekkie.
The staff at Haven Resort Hua Hin are generally very well-mannered and helpful. Even the security guard was good as well. On the first day our rented car had a lot of ants on its rooftop (probably due to parking at the wrong spot) and he brought along a container of water to help us wash them down.
Kudos to their amazing service!
4) Instagram worthy pools
A key highlight of staying at Haven Resort Hua Hin is their infinity pools. Just imagine this. A private pool overlooking an infinity pool which overlooks the beach. Including the sky, that’s 4 shades of blue at one glance!
Asides from swimming in, the pools also provide incredibly Insta-worthy moments, especially at sunrise. The beach faces directly Eastwards and you will get an unobstructed view of the rising sun. It’s well worth waking up early (about 6am) for. Let me spam you with photos haha!
5) Clean private beach
We spoke to another friend who had gone to Hua Hin recently, and he complained about the beaches of Hua Hin. Apparently, many of the public beaches have became too touristy, with large crowds and horse manure (due to horse riding by the beach) covering some stretches.
Thankfully, Haven Resort Hua Hin had a private beach of its own which was absolutely clean and tourist-free (except for tourists residing at the resort). We would sometimes see resort staff heading out to the beach to clean and sweep up litter. Kudos!
6) Great destination wedding choice
For lovebirds looking to tie the knot in a unique location, Haven Resort Hua Hin could be an ideal destination wedding for you. A dreamy wedding by the beach during the day, and a romantic night in their lovely villas :p
Compared to the high costs of a wedding in Singapore, Haven Resort Hua Hin might be a memorable alternative for a small wedding audience.
7) Great internet speed
One reason why Shawn and I are able to go for longer holidays is because we are able to work on the go. As such, good internet speed is important to us.
While not every hotel (even good ones) provides fast internet connection, Haven Resort Hua Hin fulfils this citeria. Hurrah for good internet speed!
And that covers our stay at Haven Resort Hua Hin! It was an enjoyable 3D2N experience at the resort and we would not hesitate to recommend anyone to spend a few nights there. Just be sure to rent a car during your stay so you can explore Hua Hin at your own pace and comfort.
