We arrived at this eco-lodge on a cold, wet late December day & were pleased to find that our clean but sparsely furnished room contained a heater. This was effective in taking the chill out of the air & helping to dry our clothes. The bed was large & comfortable with individual lamps for reading but we weren't keen on the cold pebbly surface in the shower room.
We greatly appreciated the log fire in the bar & spent an enjoyable hour before dinner sitting around this chatting. There was another log fire in the dining room & we enjoyed an excellent dinner with a range of tasty & hot courses. Breakfast the next day was adequate - bread & jam with eggs any which way- but unexciting.
Happily, the rain had ceased & we embarked on an excellent full day trek with a local guide who took us on a bewildering series of trails through the rice paddies from where we could enjoy the area's beautiful scenery. We stopped for a substantial lunch at his house, where we had the pleasure of eating with his family. The trails seemed quite challenging to us but our guide made them look easy, wearing only a pair of flip-flops.
We thought this lodge was good value for money & would recommend it as a base to explore the area. The staff were friendly & helpful but didn't speak much EnglishMore
