One of the more modish destinations in Hua Hin is Seenspace, Thailand’s first beachfront mall and eatery, just 30 minutes from SO Sofitel Hua Hin. Seenspace is a lifestyle mall on Hua Hin’s coastline that invites you to spend the day eating, playing and relaxing in a laid-back setting that combines chic and romantic with playful and chill. Seenspace is a mid-sized mall with cafes terraced right on the beach. Enjoy outdoor dining or a drink while taking in the tropical atmosphere or laze and swim at the pool in between shopping excursions.
Shades of blue against the sea and sky incorporate open space with serene sea breezes, providing a romantic atmosphere at its multi-brand fashion stores, exclusive beachfront and pool bars, live music and renowned restaurants.
While you’re away from SO Sofitel Hua Hin for the day you can’t beat Seenspace for its delectable food and drink establishments. Once you’re done browsing the lifestyle mall for records or swimwear, head over to the OASIS right by the beachfront, which has been transformed into an aquatic swimming pool, complete with a bar and beanbags looking out over the ocean.
Dining includes familiar Bangkok names like HOBS. This restaurant has several branches throughout Thailand; however, this branch of HOBS is unlike any other in Thailand. This HOBS was inspired by the idea of a welcoming Beach House, which gives you the sense of being on a ship. For those wanting to get closer to the ocean, there’s a long terrace that stretches out into the sea. Enjoy the experience of sipping your beer and taking in the sunset, at the same time.
If you like to mix sipping with your shopping, Seenspace has the SRETSIS MERMAID BAR for you. The Sretsis clothing brand divides the shop, with half as a clothing store, and the other half as a Hawaiian-themed bar to see and be seen while sipping cocktails and mocktails. It’s a tiki bar/tropical island style shop with a Hawaiian atmosphere located on the seashore.
A favorite among tea aficionados is the SUNDANCE LOUNGE. Set in a greenhouse with towering panes of rectangular glass, there is nothing better than sipping their carefully selected teas and perfectly paired pastries in this exclusive environment, folded up on a cozy sofa among the lush foliage.
And for the carnivores in the crowd, BONFIRE provides the ultimate in rustic American fare. Put yourself in a relaxed camping atmosphere straight from the American outdoors with a quintessential campfire menu that includes succulent steaks, burgers, cheesy sandwiches, and hotdogs.
We at SO Sofitel Hua Hin believe that everyone who comes to Hua Hin likes to shop.
