Great option for artistic couples
Facing the beach at the end of Soi 51, Green Gallery joins Baan Bayan as one of our two favourite boutique hotels in Hua Hin.
Half of the rooms are set in a restored wooden house just back from the beach while the other half are villas clustered around a small swimming pool. This is a true boutique hotel, with every room featuring its own unique theme. "Retro" hints at the 1970s disco days without going over the top; "Silhouette" goes for a bold black and white design; and "Green" features tasteful floral patterns on pastel green walls. Each room is individually furnished; vintage TVs, hanging wicker chairs, hammocks, shag carpets, teddy bears, model lighthouses and glass basin sinks are among the decorative features you might find. Lots of natural light, hardwood floors and a tasteful, artistic touch are the threads that tie it all together. All rooms also come with mini-fridge and TV, and several have balconies. Common facilities include a coffee shop, wine bar, Thai massage and great beachside patio with nightly barbecues and live music on weekends. Staff is more used to serving an upscale Thai clientele, but everyone is welcome. Rates jump by around 300 baht on weekends, when you’ll most likely need a reservation.
