This is our third stay at Baan Bayan and really can't fault it, the service remains excellent, even some of the same staff there which was nice to see. We stayed in a Garden Room, very spacious with large bathroom, plenty of storage, room safe & fridge. Large windows so very light and airy with good air con although we tried not to use this more than needed as it makes it easier to get used to the heat outside.
We love it here because it is not too big and the original area of the building is 100 years old with a lovely family history. The beach is quiet as there are only a few resorts in this area, plenty of places to eat nearby or a short distance to the night market. The resort is set well back from the road therefore very peaceful, however there is a great modern shopping centre just a short walk away if needed.
This is certainly our favourite holiday spot and would certainly recommend for a relaxed beach holiday.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Baan Bayan was originally built in the early 1900s. Facing Hua Hin’s white sandy beach, it has the undeniably superb location in one of the most sought after areas there. Baan Bayan forever catches the eyes of passersby with its hundred-year old frangipani tree, its spacious veranda together with its carved eaves and railings embracing the house. Originally a family’s summer retreat, Baan Bayan was one among many summer beach houses owned by Royal Highness Prince Devawongse Varopakarn. Built during the early period of construction of Hua Hin town and railway station, the house had been handed down to Princess Absornsamarn, consort of Royal Highness Chantaburi Naruenart, before being sold to Khun Prabha Chaiyawat on 1 April 1952. The house was then renamed Baan Bayan, as coined by Ya-Khob, the renowned Thai writer. In the past, Baan Bayan was regularly visited by Khun Prabha, her children and grandchildren and great grandchildren. Its charm and ambience render feelings of warmth and happiness in its simplest form. Not only does Baan Bayan hold its value as a rare architectural building, but it also reminds those very fond of the house of times passed and memories still cherished. Today, it is one of the rarest and finest examples of a golden teak Thai style bungalow house, lovingly restored to its former glory.
