Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group has soft-opened a new upscale resort in the Thai beach town of Hua Hin.
The new Radisson Blu Resort Hua Hin, which overlooks the Gulf of Thailand just 2.5 hours’ drive from Bangkok, marks the brand’s return to Thailand’s beaches, following the rebranding of the former Radisson Blu in Phuket earlier this year. It will also complement the existing Radisson Blu Plaza Bangkok.
“This is a fitting destination to open Thailand’s first Radisson Blu resort property. Hua Hin has long been favoured by Thai royalty as a preferred summer retreat. With its laidback but sophisticated feel the resort offers a holistic getaway from the bustling capital city of Bangkok, satisfying the needs of the discerning traveller while offering a connection to the local community,” said Preet Inder Singh, general manager of the new resort.
Radisson Blu Resort Hua Hin features 118 rooms and suites, all with free Wi-Fi. These include 22 pool access rooms which feature terraces that lead directly into the resort’s swimming pool.
F&B options include The Exchange, an all-day restaurant that uses herbs and spices from the restaurant’s own garden, The Ivy, a beachfront grill and pool bar, and a rooftop lounge. Other facilities include a spa, fitness centre, three swimming pools, three function rooms and the 200m² Aqua Ballroom.
“The resort appeals to Thai and international guests arriving from Bangkok, as well as those booking a vacation or special event from further afield. We look forward to welcoming guests from around the globe to enjoy this incredible location and experience one of the world’s leading hotel brands,” added Singh.
The new resort is scheduled to fully open in October 2016.
