The concept for Beach Society in Hua Hin is a place to chill by the ocean, sip cocktails and enjoy Mediterranean cuisine in a breezy seaside setting. Eat. Beach. Sleep. Repeat and Be Seen especially on weekends or regular beach party events organized during its high season.
With its long and colorful history that saw this quiet seaside town transformed from fishing village to royal retreat to elite resort, Hua Hin is reinvented once again at Beach Society, a stylish venue and a new place in town to hang out and be seen as the talk-of-the-town when SO Beach Party is organized every first Saturday of the month.
The Beach Society also offer dinners right after the fun and madness when the sun goes down. During the day time, dance music fills the air for the more wilder crowds especially when the SO Beach Party is held. In the evening the vibe is more chill with lounge music playing to allow you to create a more relaxed and harmonious environment to enjoy your food.

The menu is serving Mediterranean delights with a classic in construction and focus on select cuts of meat and the freshest seafood. Being a place to chill throughout the day, the beverage list is quite extensive in the smoothie and cocktail area, with something to cater for all tastes.
We tried some mocktails that had a distinctive Thai influence in the ingredients: Long & Round – fresh watermelon, fresh cucumber and lemongrass, which was very aromatic and fresh in taste and quite enjoyable to quench one’s thirst; High Time for Lime – fresh lime juice, bittered ice, honey and salt, which was a little sweeter, but still quite enjoyable.
Our culinary journey encompassed a set menu to try out a few different flavors and menu offerings, enabling us to sample all that enticed us with a reading of the menu beforehand. But strangely enough, given that a set menu was planned for us, we were not asked if we had any preferences, allergies or dislikes, so it was not until we instigated this discussion, that some items were changed. Food is always a very individual thing, so these questions are best to be asked to ensure that all diners have a memorable experience.
Food came too quickly, rather than allowing us to enjoy a relaxed evening. Main course followed with Pork Cutlet – sliced cutlet of pork with pineapple relish. A simple sliced cutlet of pork that was quite flavoursome and tender with lovely vegetables cooked to perfection, both crunchy and roasted to offset the richness of the meat. The pineapple relish added a piquancy to the dish despite the presentation was too fussy for a beach outlet. Grouper – This fish fillet was grilled to a light crispiness on the skin yet still taste quite fishy and bland. Can’t taste much of the freshness of the flesh and accompanied (almost diced) vegetables suits more for a piece of red meat instead of a fish dish.
