Cha Am is a popular vacation destination a short distance from the resort town of Hua Hin. Many travelers from Thailand and abroad choose Cha Am for its long stretch of golden sand beach, its laidback atmosphere, and its excellent facilities. Cha Am is more laidback than Hua Hin, although there is still plenty going on. And the region is developing fast, with more and more resorts on offer every year.

All of these hotels in Hua Hin and Cha Am offer great onsite facilities like restaurants, spas, and bars, plus they give good service and they are often more affordable – albeit on a lower key – than the resorts in Hua Hin itself.
