Luxury bespoke holidays and tours to Anantara Hua Hin

Reminiscent of an authentic Thai village beside the sea, the luxurious Anantara Hua Hin Resort & Spa offers all the activities a family could desire in the sleepy seaside town of Hua Hin. Surrounded by a lush overgrowth of exotic foliage, the resort’s gardens blend seamlessly with the natural landscape. The resort buildings at Anantara Hua Hin embrace traditional Thai architecture to immerse guests in the local heritage. Witness the steeply-sloped, ornamental roofs perched upon columns, their rusty colour a delight and their pointed decoration evocative. Some of such buildings can be seen to be perched on the very edge of delicate ponds, with balconies that boast verdant views of the grounds. You can also see numerous wood-carved sala pavilions dotted here and there. Even the swimming pool at the Anantara Hua Hin is almost obscured by the plants that attempt to infringe on this space. Find your way here along a torch-lit pathway framed by palms to enjoy a divine surface-level pool, which, surrounded by loungers, is an excellent space for supervised swimming for youngsters. There is even a swim-up bar. Wherever you are at the hotel, guests can be assured that the abundance of nature will be a prominent feature and that a strong Thai influence will prevail. See this in the dining venues, where attendants don traditional dress and the surrounds represent a modern take on the local style. Choose from Baan Thalia, which offers crowd-pleasing Italian dishes in a cosy dining room, Sala Siam with its modern tapas and snacks, or Sai Thong, where seafood and Thai favourites are served by the beach. For more local cuisine, Rim Nam offers a mixture of traditional and Thai fusion dishes in a sala-style setting infused with vivid purple decoration and ornamental lanterns. Pastimes at the Anantara Hua Hin are varied and range from tennis and mountain biking to serene spa treatments and peaceful swims at the beach or pool. This makes the hotel ideal for families looking to get away from it all and enjoy family bonding in the grounds or on the beach. An array of water sports facilities makes this a playground of adventure. But for those who still wish to stay in touch with Thailand’s cultural depth, families will enjoy the range of authentic local activities that are arranged on site. These include art classes to fruit carving, garland making to Yoga, as well as lessons in Thai boxing, Thai cooking and Thai language. There are also hotel-arranged excursions, which include elephant trekking and night market trips. Meanwhile, the youngest family members can attend the kids’ club for daily entertainment.

About Thailand

An Expressions tailor-made holiday to Thailand is the chance to explore a stunning part of the world. More people visit Thailand than any other country in Southeast Asia. With beautiful beaches and stunning cuisine, historic towns and colourful cities, it’s not hard to see why. Throw in national parks full of wildlife, rainforests and mountains to take the breath away, as well as a welcome so warm you can’t fail to be beguiled, and Thailand is a country you could spend a whole life exploring without growing tired. Bangkok is the country’s spectacular gateway, and what an introduction. A modern giant with gleaming shopping centres and dazzling nightlife, the City of Angels is also a place of timeless wonder, with ancient markets and temples, centuries-old palaces and monks in saffron robes. Thrusting, modern capital it may be, but everywhere the city is interwoven with a devout Buddhist tranquillity and warmth. In the north, Chaingrai province – aka the Golden Triangle – offers a wealth of river tours and hilltribe treks, ruined cities and cookery holidays, with Chiang Mai its stunning capital. In the south, idyllic islands are sprinkled into the Andaman Sea, with Koh Samui and Phuket merely the best known. Sliding down the coastal tail are the evergreen limestone islands of Ko Tao and Kho Phi Phi Don, filled with tall palms angling over pearlescent sand. With idyllic beaches in the south and mountainous rainforest in the north, Thailand is blessed with a rich variety of landscapes – and a range of attractions and activities to match. Whether you’re here for bone-white beaches or cookery schools, snorkelling and diving or hillwalking and kayaking, Thailand has it all.
