This new private-beach resort sits an hour south of Hua Hin

About an hour’s drive south of Hua Hin, Prachuap Khiri Khan's Pulakorn ( is a new private beach resort that’s nestled amid the limestone mountains of Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park.

Priced from B3,400/night, the minimalist, brownscale rooms offer either sea views or direct pool access. Better yet for holing up over the weekend are the suites and villas (from B6,000), which come complete with a private Jacuzzi.

For a slightly more active escape, take the hotel’s boat tour (B1,200) around the nearby fisherman’s village to get a glimpse of the local way of life—all while enjoying an afternoon tea set of sandwiches and fresh fruits on-board. Other possible add-ons include Thai massage and seafood barbecue by the beach.
