We were in the SoKids House and it was amazing. The girls loved having their own "room" and the teddy on their bed. Cocktails by the beach were fantastic and the kids just played in the sand or swam in the pool. Movie night for the kids allowed us to have an adult dinner whilst the kids were entertained. Beautiful...

The hotel is awesome (private beach and high ceiling room) ;however, it will be better if not far from Huahin and having play room for kids. Family room is so nice and really good for kids. Staffs are all friendly. We love the breakfast there too.

Love this place... I feel very relax and don't want to leave the place. We stayed 2 night but we wanted to stay a couple more night if we have additional vacation time. If you are looking for a place to hide away from your daily life, come down to this rabbit hole.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
SO Sofitel Hua Hin is an artistic adventure though the Evolution of Life, designed by award winning architects, designers and enhanced with signature fashion designer, Polpat Asavaprapha. The journey unfolds at the moment of arrival at the geometrical landscaped courtyard and progresses with every step, through the open-air lobby and the interwoven maze of open courtyards and private pathways filled with hidden art and animal figures waiting to be discovered. Situated beachside with a two and a half hours' drive from Bangkok and 30 minutes' drive from, the resort has 78 rooms and pool villas split into two distinct styles: SO Arty and SO Nature. Surprising wine and dine experiences awaits at the contemporary Thai restaurant White Oven, the playful beach club Beach Society and the rooftop bar HI-SO, while well-being experiences are offered at SoSPA and SoFIT. Meeting spaces range from So Ballroom to beachside event lawns for tailored moments. SO Sofitel Hua Hin brings the pulse to one of Thailand's most popular beach destinations, a playful yet luxurious resort to have fun and contemplate over design and art, an Imaginative Escape waiting to be explored. ... more   less
