Hua Hin has always been a popular spot for celebrities who want to escape Bangkok and unwind in paradise, away from the crowds. Now, Banyan Hua Hin, the healthy active lifestyle community near Thailand’s gulf coast, has welcomed “Pu” Vithaya Pansringarm, one of Thailand’s leading international actors, into the Banyan Privilege Club, its highly-rewarding membership programme.Best known for his roles in cult movies such as ‘Only God Forgives’ and ‘The Last Executioner’, Khun Pu is a highly respected actor who has successfully bridged the divide between Thai cinema and Hollywood. He is also living proof of the fact that acting is a young person’s profession; Khun Pu didn’t achieve his first acting role until he was over 50! But since enjoying a small role in ‘The Hangover Part II’, which was filmed in Bangkok in 2011 and starred Bradley Cooper, his career has gone from strength to strength.
Khun Pu’s impressive filmography now features at least 27 movie roles. He was selected to work alongside Ryan Gosling and Kristin Scott Thomas in the 2013 film, ‘Only God Forgives’, and won the prestigious “Best Actor” award at the 2014 Shanghai International Film Festival for his role as Chavoret in ‘The Last Executioner’.
His latest movie is ‘Thirteen Lives’, which tells the true story of the Tham Luang cave rescue, in which he co-stars with Colin Farrell and Viggo Mortensen.
Located just 2.5 hours’ drive from Bangkok and with views of the Gulf of Thailand from its highest point, Banyan Hua Hin is perfect for a rejuvenating weekend retreat or extended staycation.
