As the ancestral home of Prince Nares, the son of Thailand’s King Rama IV, the date of his passing on August 10th has a particular significance to the Laksasubha Resort Hua Hin’s founder and owner M.L. Laksasubha Kridakon, or Khun Mom Lak, as she is affectionately known. She is his great granddaughter.
Prince Nares (1855 – 1925) could truly be considered as a founding father of Hua Hin and is credited with conferring that name on what became the preferred resort for Thai royalty and nobility. The frontage road, Naresdamri Road, may be translated as ‘the home of Prince Nares’.
Ownership of the land where the Laksasubha Hua Hin Resort is situated was passed from Prince Nares to Khun Mom Lak’s grandfather H.S.H. Prince Sermsvat Kridakon and grandmother ML. Sae Kridakon. That ownership was then passed to her father, M.R. Suttiswat Kridakon and then to her.
Khun Mom Lak recalls idyllic summers and weekends spent here as a child enchanted by the memories of her great grandfather. As the guardian of the land, M.L. Laksasubha’s was then able to create the Laksasubha Resort.
That means over 100 years with four generations; a true family heritage well worth celebrating!
