ABOUT HUA HIN
HUA HIN: A perfect place to relax and chill with what you have ever thought before coming to Thailand. It is one of the most popular places for holiday weekenders from Bangkok to relax from a busy life during the week. It is the place to hideaway.
Hua Hin or HuaHin is well known as its ‘slow life’ beach destination near Bangkok. There are traditional fishing part with a number of fresh seafood restaurants, and a splendid sandy beach which starts from a rocky headland to its southern point where Buddhist temples are located.
Hua Hin is located 281 km. south of Bangkok in Prachuap Khiri Khan province. It takes around 3-hour drive to Hua Hin. Hua Hin is an old town abandoned during the fall of Ayutthaya in the 1760s and a new settlement was established in 1845.
The meaning of ‘The Rock’ resort derives from the Thai meaning of ‘Hua Hin’ itself. The word ‘Hua’ means head and ‘Hin’ means a rock or stone. That becomes the name of The Rock Hua Hin Resort.
Due to its slow life and the proximity to Bangkok, the capital city of Thailand, Hua Hin becomes Thailand’s most popular seaside destination among overseas visitors as well as Thais. Located on the sunrise (west) side of the Gulf of Thailand. It was here, in the 1920s, that King Rama VII built a summer place, thus creating a vogue among high society for Hua Hin as a favourite retreat from Bangkok’s summer heat. Today the Royal Family continues to reside at Hua Hin for part of the year. In contrast to Pattaya, the long-established resort on the opposite shore of the Gulf, Hua-Hin provides a quiet, relaxing retreat and amid surroundings which preserve a typical Thai ambience. Hua Hin is thus well suited for families or those who wish simply to escape the city bustle. This provides the perfect sense why The Rock Hua Hin Resort is nestled here to welcome worldwide travellers.
