Beautifully furnished thatched-roof bungalows are scattered around this riverside resort's lush gardens. Arriving is thrilling: guests park their cars on the opposite riverbank at Phutakien Pier and take a seven-minute long-tail boat ride to the resort (included in the price). Breakfast and à la carte meals (all high-quality Thai food) can be enjoyed in the pretty central lodge. Book ahead.

Rates vary by bungalow, and are much lower if you book a month or two ahead. The welcoming host can assist with excursions by boat. Wi-fi is advertised but only functions sporadically.
