For Immediate Release 29 June 2021
HUA HIN, THAILAND: 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.

Khun Pu has gained a reputation for playing dark roles and creepy characters, but his real-life persona could not be more different. When he is not filming, Khun Pu likes to enjoy the lighter side of life in Hua Hin. Escaping the intensity of the movie set, he enjoys unwinding in Hua Hin and soaking up the fresh air and tropical ambience.
“It’s just so much fun here. We love the beach. We come here to recharge our spirits and hang out with friends. It’s like a sanctuary for us. And I love to cook and entertain! This is why I love Hua Hin,” Khun Pu revealed.
As a member of the Banyan Privilege Club, Khun Pu will benefit from exclusive invitations to events at Banyan Hua Hin and Banyan Golf Club, which allow him to socialise with like-minded people in a casual, carefree atmosphere.
He will also enjoy preferential prices and promotions at more than 40 prestigious local partners, from top resorts, restaurants and beach clubs to water parks, sports centres, spas and medical centres, and receive attractive discounts at Banyan Golf Club, the 18-hole championship course which has been recognised as one of the “Rolex World’s Top 1000 Golf Courses” and was named as the “Best Golf Experience in Asia Pacific” once again in 2020.
