The Thai beach town of Hua Hin houses a host of exciting attractions sure to capture the attention of the cultural tourist, as well as the luxury hunter. It is also a great place in which to soak in some warm island hospitality typical of most beach hotels Hua Hin Thailand has to offer. Of all fine Hua Hin hotels, the Anantara Hua Hin Thailand Resort offers luxury accommodation laced with modern amenities to make for an unforgettable stay at this refined Thai township. The Klai Kangwon palace is a fitting testament to Thailand’s royal family, as the ruling monarchs, King Bhumibol and Queen Sirikit, use the regal residence as a sumptuous summering spot. The name “Klaikang won” translates as “far from worries” in the local language, and the royal family certainly has nothing but peace and harmony to look forward to every time they grace the palace with their presence. Set amidst exclusive territory that extends out to sea, the palace has its very own pristine beach opening up to the sparkling Sapphire waters of the Gulf of Thailand. This elite residence is only accessible via exclusive invitation. It boasts gorgeous Spanish-style architecture dating back to the early twentieth century. Its pristine emerald gardens are gorgeously manicured and feature a range of vibrant and exotic artworks from Java. The royal complex comprises four buildings on the picturesque lot, and the two-storey “Phra Tamnak Piem Suk” is the King and Queen’s residence, and comes complete with a beautiful Roman garden, an intriguing sundial and a walkway that leads to the beach out front. Other members of the royal family are housed in separate buildings on the same scenic grounds and these buildings boast a variety of architectural styles from the traditional European-style log cabins to contemporary Thai structures.
