Ananda Hua Hin opens April 2017
Hua Hin’s most exciting new opening, Ananda Hua Hin Resort & Spa is to open on 1 April 2017, featuring a collection of elite private beachfront pool villas expected to set a new high watermark for privacy and exclusivity in the royal destination.
The new high-end brand by Compass Hospitality adds to its existing of three brands – Compass, Citrus, Citin – and marks its 42nd managed property across its operating markets in Thailand, Malaysia and the UK.
The eagerly awaited new property, led by veteran hotelier Nigel Tovey, will feature the Ananda Pool Villa Collection, a cluster of luxurious private accommodation options with creative indoor and outdoor spaces ranging from 188 sqm to 268 sqm in size. Decorated in light, soft tones, the villas open onto lush gardens, private pools and each one comes with its own private entrance.
A strong sense of individualism pervades the star-quality villa collection with unique experiences delivered via Ananda’s “Check-in, Bliss-out” concierge, offering everything from impressionist watercolour painting classes to a videography programme, private beauty menu and a selection of elegant classic cars to choose from to traverse the nearby hills, travel to the golf course or visit local vineyards.
“Ananda Hua Hin is a property of its time, and perfectly fitting with this fast-evolving destination as we look to redefine an area that was actually one of the first spots wealthy families came to 30 years ago,” said Ananda Hua Hin general manager Mr. Tovey. “It is the most beautiful, natural and peaceful part of the coast and therefore the ideal location for us to offer a whole new level of hospitality to our guests.”
The entirety of Ananda Hua Hin encompasses 196 rooms, cleverly divided into three distinct areas. The 23 pool villas are closest to the beach and there’s a dedicated family area featuring an expansive pool and the Submarine Kids Club. Housed in the grounds will also be Hua Hin’s largest ballroom, with 900 sqm of flexible function space, including a range of customisable floor plans, state-of-the-art audio-visual and inspired menus catering to domestic and regional corporate events and weddings.
