Standard Hua Hin celebrates its first anniversary
The Standard Hua Hin celebrated its first anniversary with an upbeat birthday party at The Lido Bar, filled with fabulous food, sparkling drinks and inspiring entertainment.
On Dec 1, one year since the resort opened its doors and started to redefine hospitality in Hua Hin, the seafront retreat invited guests, local residents, executives and VIPs — including Thailand’s leading trend-setters and taste-makers — to mark this important milestone. Merrymakers were treated to a selection of colourful cocktails, handcrafted especially for this occasion by talented mixologists, along with signature Italian dishes from the executive chef, including fresh crab spaghetti and stone-baked pizzas. The resort’s resident DJ spun deep house, soul and funk tunes as the Moon shone over the ocean, creating an enchanting atmosphere.
The Standard Hua Hin’s first-anniversary action also included the launch of “Camp Standard” — a full-on holiday camp featuring two days of energising experiences and fun surprises. From stand-up paddleboard yoga sessions, beachfront boot camps, and arts and crafts classes to rooftop picnics, pool parties and campfire shows.
