Creaky wooden floors, teak antiques, afternoon tea, marble staircases. There’s just something magical about a hotel with some history. From Yangon to Hong Kong, many of Asia’s most beautiful heritage hotels emerged during the 19th and early 20th centuries. And one of them is in Hua Hin.

TTR Weekly reports that one of Thailand’s iconic and historical hotels, Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas Hua Hin, has made it to the CNN Travel’s annual best heritage hotel list.

The 95 year old property was identified among the Best Heritage Hotels, worldwide.

Opened in 1923, Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas Hua Hin (originally known as The Railway Hotel) tells the story of Hua Hin’s evolution from a small fishing village to thriving resort destination. It began in the early 1900s, when Thailand’s southern railway route finally linked Bangkok and the west coast by train – CNN Travel

Acclaimed as one of the grand hotels of the East, the Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas Hua Hin has been recognised as Best Heritage Hotels 2018 by CNN Travel, among the top luxury hotels and resorts in Asia and on a global scale.

It not only illustrates the heritage of the Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas Hua Hin, as one of Thailand’s historical properties since it opened in 1923, but also underscores the hotel’s long-standing reputation for excellence, endorsed by CNN Travel, the hotel group stated.

“We are excited to be honoured as Best Heritage Hotels 2018 by CNN Travel” said Centara’s general manager & corporate director of operations Hua Hin, Krabi & Samui, David Martens.

“This recognition is truly a reflection of the exemplary dedication and passion of our staff in providing highest quality service.”

Rescuers get provisions into flooded Prachuab Khiri Khan district | The Thaiger

Army and rescue workers, loaded up with ready-made foods and drinking water, were visiting villages behind Chong Lom dam in Bang Saphan Noi district of Prachuab Khiri Khan yesterday after the area was cut off from the outside world.

The only road into the district was flooded and had become impassable.

Rescuers responded to a distress alert from Amporn Thaokruamat, village head of Village 8 in Tambon Chang Rak where residents of 70 households have been trapped in their village and are unable to get out to get food, drinking water and other necessities.

Thai PBS reports that the rescuers travelled in four-wheel drive vehicles up to a certain distance and then trekked through rubber plantations to reach the village with their supplies of ready-made food and bottled drinking water for the residents.

Rain has stopped in Bang Saphan and Bang Saphan Noi districts on Saturday but severl areas still remain flooded as backhoes of the Royal Irrigation Department stepped up dredging operation to widen the mouth of Klong Bang Saphan to facilitate the flow of excess water into the sea.

Water level in Klong Bang Saphan has lowered to about 15 centimetres below the edge of both banks of the klong, hence, causing flood water to recede at Bang Saphan hospital, the market and the railway station.

Water level at several small reservoirs in the district has returned to normal.

Prachuap Khiri Khan floods trigger evacuations | The Thaiger

Bang Saphan Hospital in Prachuap Khiri Khan transferred 10 patients in critical condition to a provincial hospital last night amid heavy flooding triggered by more than 200 millimetres of rainfall in just 24 hours in parts of the province.  Floodwaters outside the Bang Saphan Hospital prompted the evacuation of nine patients on respiratory aid as well as a pregnant woman.

At least five schools remain closed today.

Kittikorn Thepyoo-amnuay, head of the provincial disaster prevention and mitigation office says the water level at Wang Yao Bridge on the Phetchkasem Highway was “beyond critical” at above 7.5 metres and still rising.

Parts of urban Prachuap Khiri Khan were inundated and runoff from the Tanaosri Mountain Range was expected to add to the city’s woes this afternoon, he warned. Some 3,000 residents of Bang Saphan Noi district have already been affected, Kittikorn said, and aid was being distributed.

Second Lieutenant Kowit Sukkham, head of the Muang Prachuap Khiri Khan military team charged with maintaining order, has supplemented his officers with soldiers from Thanarat Military Camp in helping flood-affected residents of Tambon Bang Saphan in Bang Saphan Noi district, where hours of rainfall had left low-laying areas submerged in 130 centimetres of floodwater.

The Pattaya – Hua Hin ferry service has started again for the high season.

The Hua Hin deputy chief Chareewat Phramanee has confirmed that Royal Passenger Liner will operate a daily service again between Hua Hin and Pattaya during the high season.

The service was suspended in September, with Royal Passenger Liner blaming the drop in numbers during tourist low season as the reason for suspending services.

Tickets for the 340 seat catamaran ferry start at 1,250 baht. The journey normally takes around 2.5 hours.

Meanwhile, the head of Prachuap Khiri Khan Tourism Association has told Talk News of plans to build a new pier in Pak Nam Pran, approximately 10 kilometres south of Hua Hin, which would be used for a car ferry service.
