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. Baan Bayan was awarded the prestigious Historical Architectural Conservation Award in 2005 by the Association of Siamese Architects (ASA) under the Royal Patronage. Guests staying at Baan Bayan can experience the glory of a bygone era, yet with all of today’s modern comforts and amenities. It is positioned as a small exclusive luxury beach hotel offering the charm of a traditional Thai aristocratic beach house. Baan Bayan will allow guests to sink back into a history rich with associations of the swinging, glorious 1920/30’s. Guests who have a desire to experience history and culture and seek a different vacation venue will appreciate the atmosphere at Baan Bayan. Advantageously, the resort is only a few minutes away from Hua Hin town center, market, and airport.

The main building of this hotel is a lovely old colonial building. It is in a prime location on the beachfront. Unfortunately, the beach is way too crowded and uncomfortable. However, the Baan Bayan has nice areas that you can sit out without having to go tot the beach. I would recommend that you stay in one of the rooms overlooking the beach as they have a large balcony /deck area where you can sit and relax during the day. The room is small but very comfortable. I was surprised at how bad the breakfast was. With such lovely fruits available in Thailand, you would think that there would be an abundance of fresh fruits for breakfast - not so. Hua Hin is not for everyone. Every conceivable space is filled with people, restaurants, massage parlours, shops, busy busy busy. Not a relaxing place but if you like being surrounded by people and cars - it;s the spot for you.

We stayed for four nights in a garden room on the second floor, large room but dated bathroom, comfortable room. and very clean. breakfast quality needs to be improved, lovey charming hotel right on the sea front and not far from shops and restaurants. Every Wednesday no sunbeds or eating places on the beach. Staff very helpful at all times. Hua Hin has turn into a large town now, but worth visiting for a short time before heading to the islands.

We returned to Baan Bryan for our 9th visit as we really love this small hotel. The staff are lovely and very helpful, which is one of the reasons we return. It is very special to be given a warm welcome every time we return by staff we know and who remember us. We celebrate our wedding anniversary in February and the hotel gave us a beautiful flower arrangement and a bottle of wine. The food is great and this year the Valentine’s dinner on the beach was one of the best meals we have ever had in Thailand. The lights and candles which they took endless trouble in setting up made for a really magical evening. The bedroom is really comfortable and although the bathroom could do with upgrading everything works. The situation of the hotel, right on the lovely beach and far enough away from the town centre to be peaceful but only a short journey away is very good and the hotel runs a shuttle service into town every day. Every year we wonder about going somewhere else and every year we decide to stick with what we know we are going to really enjoy, so we have already booked for next year. We would much rather stay in a small individual hotel rather than in a large impersonal international brand hotel with hundreds of other people.
