Maruekhathaiyawan Palace
The Palace between Cha-Am and Hua Hin was build by King Vajiravudh (Rama VI) as a seaside summer retreat in 1923.
The King also built a palace on Hat Chao Samran beach, a little more North, but he was not satisfied with the result and decided to demolish the building and use the teak wood to construct a new Palace facing the sea in Cha-Am district. Cha-Am was hereafter connected to Bangkok by rail and the area was beneficial to health with its forest and fresh sea air.
The Palace is built and made only by from teak wood. The King himself disigned the palace. He built it to be a very comfortable place and made excellent ventilation. The niches were filled with water in the pillars to keep out ants. An Italian architect,Ercole Manfred, was hired to finish the design.

The King Rama VI and other members of the Royal Family used the palace until his death in 1925.
The King’s wife, Queen Indrasakdi Sachi lived in the Samundra Biman section of the Palace, which contained a number of rooms including a living room, a bedroom, a dressing room and a bathroom as well as a corridor leading to a bathing pavilion on the beach.
A section was used for official functions with offices and theatre. The furniture would be moved there from Bangkok when the Royal Family visited their palace for the summer..
The Palace was left deserted after The King died in 1925. But now the palace has been restored up to its former glory. You can even see the King"s furniture such as his writing desk, bed and sofa.
The beatyfull palace and the surrounding mangrove forest will show you how the Royal Family enjoyd their life in their palace.
