Though it’s some 2km (1.25 miles) south of town, the hotel’s style, service, many amenities, and upkeep set it above the rest. Guest rooms have French windows that open to private terraces overlooking a teak forest, garden, and stream. Blond wood and wicker furnishing dominate the décor scheme of the rooms, and suites are large and comfortable. Lounge on the wooden pool deck or nosh on Thai classics at the open-air restaurant with garden views. The staff can help with any eventuality, from day tours to flat tires.
