Civilai Hill Khao Yai 

For when you need: A pool villa with stunning mountain views
No beach is required when you check into this pool villa tucked up in the mountains of Khao Yai. Located on the outskirts of the vast national park, Civilai Hill Khao Yai is a young resort that offers the kind of pool villa you never want to leave. Though it only has one bedroom, the space is huge at 200 sq meters, featuring a Jacuzzi, oversized bed, traditional Japanese-style wooden bathtub and temperature-adjustable pool. We spoke to them and they say they’re happy to welcome parties of five—with a little added cost for the three extra people. Highlight? The Panoramic pool villa comes with irresistible Khao Yai valley views from your pool plus a barbecue garden that gives you girls a private space for sunset grill parties. 
Rates start from B15,000         

X2 Hua Hin Lebayburi -  Pranburi Villa 

For when you need: A hideaway that’s luxurious but won’t break the bank 
Located a little out from Hua Hin city center, this stylish resort offers not only good-looking design but also a very private atmosphere and spacious outdoors area for some drinking by the pool. There are four separate villas on offer, each decked out under a different theme: the all-white and glass Mediterranean Retreat; the wood-heavy pacific Hideaway; the Bali-esque Modern Tropical; and minimally-modern Scandinavian Vacation. All come with a huge living room, kitchen facilities and private pool that’s oh-so-perfect for cooking and chilling by the pool. Maximum eight people. 
Rates start from B15,000 on weekdays and B20,000 on weekends (no breakfast included)—that could mean as little B1,875 per person
