PROUD REAL ESTATE yesterday announced the completion of the second-phase development of its mixed-use project in Hua Hin involving an additional investment of Bt1.8 billion.

The 300-room Holiday Inn Vana Nava Hua Hin will have its soft opening this month as a unique 140m-high property, making it the tallest building in Hua Hin. The hotel has three main target segments comprising families, couples, and MICEs, with families being the most natural clientele based on the popularity of the waterpark. The hotel will also feature one of the largest MICE facilities in Hua Hin with over 1,500-square metre meeting spaces, along with a wide range of facilities that includes a 24-hour 300-square-metre fitness centre, infinity pools on 26th floor, as well as a lobby bar, spa, well-equipped Kids Club and dedicated Kids Suites.

Proudputh Liptapanlop, executive director of Proud Real Estate, said that the launch of Holiday Inn Vana Nava Hua Hin is the second phase of the Vana Nava Hua Hin mixed-use project at an investment of Bt1.8 billion.

This will be followed by a final residential phase late next year completing a total investment for the three phases of Bt4 billion. “This will also complete a fully integrated entertainment experience for Hua Hin comprising these three phases as well as our other developments in the destination – InterContinental Hua Hin Resort, True Arena Hua Hin and Bluport Hua HIn Resort Mall,” Proudputh said. The first phase of the mixed-use development is the Bt1.2-billion Vana Nava Water Jungle in Hua Hin, one of Thailand's top waterparks which has been in operation for three years.

The third and final phase will be Vana Nava Residence high-rise condominium, which is expected to launch within 2018. The premium residential project requires an estimated investment of about Bt2 billion.

Well, that's another building that blends in with the architectural heritage of Hua Hin.
I'm glad to read that there are more monstrosities planned.
EDIT - what are MICEs? I thought that rats in the kitchen were bad enough.

Hua Hin lost its 'heritage' 15 years ago!

MICE = meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions.

In other words Bangkokians.

When HH started to lose it's 'heritage'..about 15 yrs ago I'm pretty sure the Amphur made a public statement that to keep HH's charm etc all new buildings would have to be no higher than 8 floors..Then the Bangkok developers came along dangling a fat carrot in a BIG brown envelope no doubt...TiT.

I've always believed it was 5 stories, and East of Petchkasem Rd. However, I'm not sure where I picked that up - probably sat on a bar stool at the time.

Does this new building actually fall within central Hua Hin? Very loosely, if it does.

The "law" is 500 meters from the beach which is around the railroad tracks in Central Hua Hin.

Cheers,

It's no doubt got a Thai architect and it looks dated by about 30 years even before it's open. It is an awful monstrosity.

Once you get to Cha am heading south, you get to see some of the shoddiest 'designed' high rise stuff as you're likely to see anywhere.
