So Sofitel, Hua Hin – Cha-am, Relax with Arty Décor and Party on a Private Beach
Enjoy an elegant experience at the extravagant five-star hotel on Cha-am beach, with its appealing design by a leading architect and artwork from well-known artists. Top it all off with a great time at a vibrant party on the private beach in So Sofitel style.
The statue of a white rabbit holding a clock is a hint to guests of So Sofitel Hotel that the normal rules of time don’t apply once you step into the hotel and you can relax completely.
The longest marble staircase of any hotel in Southeast Asia leads to the lobby area, passing animal statues placed in a pond and with the sea in the distant background. Interior decoration is the work of renowned French designer Donatien Carratier, following the concept of “Evolution”. Inspired by ‘Grand Galerie de l’Evolution’ at the Museum of Natural History of Paris, animal statues are scattered throughout the hotel, including in guest rooms.
Design is the outstanding feature of So Sofitel. Complementing the French designer, Thai architect Duangrit Bunnag has used wood to give a soft, natural and relaxed feeling that blends well with the laid-back atmosphere of a beach resort.
So Nature is a room inspired by nature. Its décor consists of elements made from natural materials, such as wooden furniture with nature patterns and photos of well-known New Zealand photographer, Martin Hill.
So Arty is extravagant, with contemporary French design; the spacious room is bright and colourful. Photos taken by Lois Greenfield of the beautiful movements of a dancer adorn the room.
So Pool Villa is a room designed to take you to another level of relaxation, with a pool in the middle so you can have a dip whenever you feel like it. It is suitable for a group of friends or large family that prefers privacy.
Besides the detailed artistic decoration, Sofitel Hua Hin features a restaurant that serves Thai and international dishes and a lively bar serving wonderful cocktails created by an amazing mixologist. Other facilities include So Spa for a soothing treatment, So Fit – a 24-hour fitness room and two grand swimming pools.
Every first Saturday of the month enjoy a jolly party on the beach at So Beach Party, when the hotel’s beach is transformed into a private party from 5pm to 11 pm. (more details on the Hotel’s fan page)
