The walk-in beach was perfect for toddlers and young swimmers.
Near the beginning of the lazy river.
The lazy river emptied into one side of the pool area...
The area in the photo below reminded me of the small creeks and springs in Florida. I almost expected to see an alligator or two float by.
The hotel says that it has 200 meters of beachfront, the longest of all Hua-Hin hotels. The beach was spotless and the sand was nice and soft. There were the usual vendors hawking clothing, rides on horses, jet skis and banana boats but they weren't aggressive if you weren't interested.
Looking out to the beach from the pool area.
Although the skies were overcast each day, the rain held off until nighttime and we were able to have a lot of pool and beach time.
Why is there such a short time between the good behavior giving way to silliness?!?
As you can see from the photos, the resort was deserted! I thought there would be more people at the hotel and on the beach since it was the Songkran holiday but I was wrong. Not that I am complaining. We never had a problem getting chairs at the pool or a table at a restaurant and the resort was, generally, very quiet. The boys had a great time swimming and Caitlynne, my friend and I caught up on our reading.
I did take a few photos of food.
I had this arugula, shrimp and pesto risotto one night for dinner.
And the kids each had this sun-dried tomato and mascarpone risotto. Both dishes were excellent.
For dessert one evening, we had this yummy passion-fruit, white chocolate and dark chocolate mousse.
There are only two more "must do" trips on our list before we leave - a visit to Cambodia and a visit to Vietnam. Cambodia can be done in a long weekend and we might try and squeeze that in while Kevin is home in mid-May. We will need about 5 days to see what we want to in Vietnam so that trip will probably need to wait until the kids are out of school and Kevin is back in June. It would be nice to get in another trip to Hua Hin but with just two months left and Kevin not here for most of it, it just might not be possible.
Have a great Monday!
