It's no exaggeration to say that the new Holiday Inn Vana Nava Hua Hin opened with a bang on the evening of February 24. Launched with fireworks, performances by iconic divas Tata Young and Christina Aguilar and Thai actress Janie Thienphosuvan's dramatic descension from the heavens in a highlighting show, there was plenty for the 400 esteemed guests to take in at the grand launch event. Formally welcoming everyone to the party were the LiptapanlopsPasu, Proudputh, Lt Gen Poonpirom, Suwat and Jaraspim—of Proud Real Estate, the developers of Holiday Inn Vana Nava Hua Hin, as well as deputy prime minister Dr Somkid Jatusripitak, the governor of Prachuap Khiri Khan, Dr Panlop Singhaseni and many top executives. 

The Holiday Inn Vana Nava Hua Hin, Asia's first Holiday Inn branded water park resort, is just a 2.5-hour drive from Bangkok, perfect for a quick beach getaway from the hustle and bustle. Hosting 300 rooms and suites, and facilities such as a Sky Deck and state-of-the-art infinity pool on the 26th floor, the hotel is also the highest hotel in Hua Hin to date.
