Maruekhathaiyawan Palace Cha-am, Hua Hin Reviews

  • Nice history palace right on the beach surrounded by beautiful trees and flowers. Be careful, it's closed on Wednesday. You will feel like coming back to the past visiting the different rooms with all the small details. You can also enjoy a coffee or a meal at the palace entrance. Don't forget to slow down and open your window when you drive through the camp main entrance. (To show respect)

  • This is a beautiful palace next to the sea and most importantly the ticket is not expensive at all which only cost you 30 baht. I have visited here at least 3 times, but the experiences have been dropped because of renovation. The first time I came here, you are still allowed to go to the second floor to visit some royal rooms but it has been closed since sometime last year. The staff told us it may take 5 years or more for the renovation works. I wish it could be faster but I guess it won't :(

  • Good place to see how the beach residences of the kings used to lived.. I would recommend coming few years after as they are currently in the restoration process and all rooms are off limits to everyone... entry is 30 baht and you must be properly dressed in order to get in... Google map will route you to drive through and infantry camp and that’s wrong.. there is another entrance down the road..

  • This place sums up what you are NOT allowed to see. Just the ground level areas, and none of the Royal rooms, which must surely be the whole reason for a visit. I was even told to remove my dark glasses to visit the Throne room, which meant I couldn't focus on what I was seeing. It only had a few pictures in from what I could make out. A big disappointment.

  • Lovely place. Very peaceful. Would have given the place 5 stars but the restoration works kind of ruined the ambience.
