The Standard, Hua Hin

Nov 14, 2021

THE STANDARD HAS LONG HAD a reputation around the globe for creating hotels that are destinations in their own right. From The Standard, High Line, a perpetually buzzy downtown number directly by New York’s famously beloved urban park, to The Standard Spa, Miami Beach, a jetsetter’s paradise where the glitterati flock after Art Basel Miami, these places are all about creating a scene and a statement. The latest addition and the brand’s first foray into Thailand has been hotly anticipated for months. On December 1, guests will be able to experience The Standard, Hua Hin, a 199-key oasis by the Gulf of Thailand.

“While Hua Hin is a beautiful retreat with its crystal-clear waters, white sand beaches and lush landscape, we are equally enchanted by its history and the sense of subtle Thai elegance noticeable throughout the town,” said Standard International Executive Chairman, Amar Lalvani. “We are excited to introduce the Standard’s unique vibrancy and sensibility to Hua Hin while introducing Hua Hin to our clientele who I believe will fall for its charms as well.”

The 21 pool villas here are sure to turn heads, but the main attraction here is going to be the infectious buzz from Thailand’s creative community. The brightly hued decor calls to mind the vibrance of The Standard Spa, Miami Beach while the pool already promises to be a hub for an eclectic crowd of beautiful people.

After sipping cocktails by the pool, guests can recharge with a healing treatment at The Spa or indulge in authentic Italian eats at The Lido restaurant. The Juice Café is the perfect place to detox after a night of revelry, with an assortment of restorative cold-pressed juices, coffees, smoothies and healthy bites. Meanwhile, Praça serves traditional Thai dishes family-style with craft cocktails in a restored heritage house overlooking the beach.
