Holiday Inn Vana Nava Hua Hin 

Hua Hin’s newest hotel addition, the Holiday Inn Vana Nava Hua Hin officially opened its doors to the public at the end of February. The building becomes Hua Hin's tallest structure.

The shape of the hotel's facade was modelled after a traditional Thai fishing trap, a nod to the town's fishing village heritage. The design of the hotel, was implemented by Thai firm Architects 49.

The hotel's skybar on the 27th floor was designed by Ashley Sutton, also responsible for bars and clubs across Bangkok and Hong Kong including Iron Fairies and Ophelia. Featuring a glass-bottomed balcony and panoramic views, it is Hua Hin's first skybar, offering unobstructed perspectives to both the sea and the mountains.

Connected to the previously opened Vana Nava Water Jungle waterpark, the Holiday Inn Vana Nava Hua Hin is part of larger mixed-use development, combining leisure facilities and accommodation. Plans are also under way to construct residences, which are expected to be completed later this year.
