A stunning piece of architecture, the Maruekhathaiyawan Palace Cha-Am is a Thai-Victorian style summer seaside palace which was constructed in the early 1920s, during the reign of King Rama VI. Situated between Cha-Am and Hua Hin, the palace was designed by an Italian architect and was built with golden teak. Today, the royal halls and chambers have been converted into a walk-through museum. The museum has on display royal artefacts and framed vintage photographs.

Maruekhathaiyawan Palace Cha-am, Hua Hin Reviews - Write a Review

  • Seaside palace it's kinda hot for me. The place is good for learning history abt King Rama VI. But the place that i would recommend at the Mrigadayavan is Tea Room get after noon tea set. Listen to old style Thai music. Enjoy Thai desserts. such a great pleasure.

  • A very peaceful place. Visitors should expect proper dress code.

  • You can walk around the palace with proper outfit. If you don't have long trousers there is a place where you can rent one for free. The palace is next to the ocean and the architect is very elegant and beautiful But if you come under the big sun then you may have sweat alot.

  • Still under renovation and it seems that it will be not competed before years. Short pant is not accepted for foreigners (need to cover legs with a sarong). It is not requested for Thai people. Interesting for a walk, but nothing's special.

  • Summer palace of King Rama VI l. Built in 1924. The place in under refurbishment in 2017 and partly closed off.
