Frangipani Wing at Aleenta Hua Hin-Pranburi, Thailand

Frangipani Wing of Aleenta Hua Hin is as cute as it’s serene with breakfast in bed, personalised notes, cooking classes and beachfront views.

Where is it?
Pranburi, half-an-hour south of Hua Hin on the Gulf of Thailand

Why is it amazing?
The cute-as-a-button Frangipani is as small as it is serene.

Five rooms with earthy clay floors and terracotta walls each have access to a shared infinity pool that has sweeping views of Pak Nampran Bay.

French doors, outdoor bathrooms and sunken deckchairs on your own wooden deck complete the look. Staff leave hand-written notes at turn-down foretelling the next day’s weather, prepare breakfast in bed of fruit and croissants, or arrange a Thai cooking lesson using produce from the organic farm.
