Chose this hotel outisde the town of Phimai located by a river with individual cabins. The German owner is a very pleasant person giving you tips where to eat as the guest house only serve breakfast. The Phimai historical park is a mere 5 minutes ride from Moon River Resort.
Resort is maybe a too pretentious name for this simple place of small bungalows along the river. In itself the place is quiet, but I have been told that sometimes loud music from the surrounding area can be disturbing. When we were there this was not the case. We had half of an 800 baht bungalow with a large room and large bathroom. There was a fridge and a flatscreen. Also A/C, although the remote performed poorly. So far so good for all this until I laid myself down on the bed. I cannot remember having had a bed this hard. I like firm, but this mattress did not give way for one millimeter. So I used the cover to sleep on, which conflicted with a pleasant temperature. All in all a night not to forget and to get up more tired than when going to bed. The breakfast was simple but adequate, with toast, an egg, fruit and instant coffee. Unless the beds change I would not go again.…
If you are looking for relax, this is the place. We loved it! Bed is very confortable, all the staff is kind and helpful. Easy to reach with the bus coming from Kirat, they also provide bicicles to ride in town city centre. Anyway it is not far to reach by walking.
For peace and quiet this is IT, I didn't realise doing absolutely nothing could be so nice. Don't go looking for anything fast or hectic it isn't here, thankfully! Set just off a main road but more than enough to eliminate traffic noise. Staff so nice and very helpful, can't thank them enough.
My husband and I stayed three nights in cottage 1A. The location is wonderful along the river and yet only a short walk to the town centre and historical park. We very much enjoyed sitting on the verandah. It is the sort of place that could be a 5-plus, but unfortunately I must rate it less than five based on certain aspects of my experience. Maybe it is the name “resort”, the beautiful setting, and my experiences at guest houses in other Thai towns that led me to expect that I wouldn’t need to ask for basic information such as the WiFi password, the owners would know something about local restaurants, and that the room would have been cleaned better, particularly the toilet area, and a filthy glass in the refrigerator. So I give it a rating of 4 because it was still a very nice location to stay, but it just did not have the warmth and service-orientation that I have experienced elsewhere in Thailand.…
What a find. Small bungalow accomodation right on the Moon River. Attached bath, fridge, 2 bottles of water daily, room serviced daily, own private verandah- great for a cold beer in the afternoon. So peaceful. You couldn't find nicer owners. While we didn't mind the 15 minute walk into town for lunch/dinner/snacks, I suppose some people would prefer to be closer to restaurants. Personally, we loved the laid back feeling. Loved Phi Mai as well, though we had to leave just as the festival was taking off. We'll be back.
The resort is right on the banks of the river and each cottage has a private outside seating area as well access to the communal pier and boats. The cottages are well designed and clean and the gardens are well kept. the museum is a 5 min walk away and the historical park is a few minutes further away. The night market is also in easy reach by foot. Khun Suchit and his team could not be more accommodating and welcoming. We hope to be back!
The AC only cooled the room to about 35C, or nearly 95 F. Stayed about 2 hours, then checked out. We did get half our nightly rate back, so I was ok. Wooden building had cracks between every board to let the heat in. It was 100 F outside. One channel on the TV.
Great hosts, very helpful and friendly people. Very quaint Thai style cabin rooms which are very dated; however it feels wrong to say anything wrong about this relaxed resort. Nice location on the side of a small lake which gives pleasant views and with room rates of 600 Baht including a breakfast is good. Wi-Fi was excellent.
Chris and Chin, run a friendly smart riverside resort. Just 10 mins walk from the Phimai ruins, 5 mins to the national museum. The location is lovely for relaxing after sightseeing. I swam in the river from their pontoon and they have 2 kayaks you can use as well. The owners are very helpful, highly recommended
