Wyndham Hua Hin Pranburi Resort & Villas pool

Wyndham Hotels and Resorts has appointed Wyndham Destinations to manage a beachfront resort on Thai Riviera which will become the first Wyndham-branded property in Thailand outside of Bangkok and Phuket

The 194-key Blue Lotus Hua Hin, which was also previously known as Evason Hua Hin under Six Senses, will be rebranded to Wyndham Hua Hin Pranburi Resort and Villas.

The resort is set on a 20-acre former coconut plantation and is surrounded by national parks.

“The opening of Wyndham Hua Hin Pranburi Resort & Villas indicates the long-term potential we can develop in Thailand’s seaside resort cities,” said Wyndham Hotels and Resorts President Asia Pacific, Joon Aun Ooi.

“As travel demand continues to rebound strongly across the region, this reinforces our commitment to bring our globally recognized brands to our guests in the Asia Pacific. We are excited about our partnership with Wyndham Destinations because of their proven track record in executing day-to-day operations and delivering the excellent guest services for which the Wyndham brand is renowned.”

The property’s accommodation offering ranges from studios and family suites with expansive private terraces, to 90-110sqm villas with a private plunge pool, sun lounges and large daybed within a private walled garden.

Positioned in Pranburi, with expansive gardens to explore on the grounds, Wyndham Hua Hin features a wide range of leisure facilities including four tennis courts; four courts for North American pastime pickleball, a skate park, archery range, beach volleyball courts; fitness room, children’s club and meeting rooms, as well as a 1,250-sqm lagoon pool with a 47-metre lap lane.

It’s also home to Asia’s leading plant-based cooking school facility, which will reopen when COVID-19 restrictions are eased.

“We are proud to have built a resort portfolio that includes some of the most beautiful holiday destinations in the Asia Pacific region and this destination of Pranburi represents another incredible addition,” said Wyndham Destinations President and Managing Director, International Operations, Barry Robinson.

“It is an exciting opportunity to expand our management operations outside the well-known tourist centres of Bangkok and Phuket. The resort has excellent reviews online, including a rating of 9.1 on Agoda.com, and we look forward to seeing what we can do to raise the guest experience even further.”
