Just a two-and-a-half-hour drive away from bustling Bangkok, SO Sofitel Hua Hin combines a mix of pleasure, style and soul through its ‘Imaginative Escape’ concept, capturing Thailand’s playful beachside style and appealing to design enthusiasts and trendsetters.

The design driven resort features the creative flair and signature style of a team of local and international designers and architects, and features sophisticated urban artwork, open courtyards, private pathways, a natural palette of aged wood and an ‘Evolution of Life’ theme, featuring animal sculptures throughout the property to add a whimsical surprise around every corner and complement the surrounding environment. There is even the art ‘Galerie’, which will rotate exhibitions from local and international up-and-coming artists every three months.
There are 77 guest rooms which include two individual room styles, SO Nature, with simple natural elements, and SO Arty with chic, contemporary design, as well as six SO pool villas featuring flat-screen TVs, an Apple Mac Mini and complimentary local refreshments.
