View of My Dream’s front lobby and restaurant

Located on the other side of the Nam Khan River, 2011-opened My Dream has simple yet beautifully designed rooms decorated in neutral hues. Natural materials such as bamboo, unfinished wood and stone are used, giving rooms a light, airy feel.

The eight “classic” rooms – four upstairs and four downstairs – are on the small side though each has a terrace/balcony that looks onto the building with deluxe rooms, exactly the same design except larger. The standouts are the four bungalows: they have more privacy and space than the rooms, plus a large balcony and high ceilings. There are plans to build three more bungalows on the property, ready for early 2015.

The resort has one family suite bungalow

“Resort” is a bit of a misnomer as the only resort-type amenity is the modestly sized pool and extra greenery. A garden and manicured lawn lead down to the river’s edge where there are two salas great for lazy lounging.

The garden salas are perfect for reading a book or an afternoon siesta

The lobby/restaurant is pleasant and overlooks the pool and resort. The staff are friendly and trained, a testament to how well managed the hotel is. Upon our arrival we were immediately greeted by the manager and made to feel very welcome.

Settle in for a quiet meal.

The only downside to My Dream is the location. The resort is in Ban Meung Nga, across the Nam Khan River. Cross the motorbike bridge (also known as the “old bridge”), take the first left after you cross and you’ll find their sign in front of a narrow lane lined with bamboo.

Serene and green.

The quickest way to get into town from the hotel would be to take one of the free bicycles provided and ride across the old bridge. There is a pedestrian walkway on the outside of the bridge but it is definitely not for those afraid of heights. It’s a 10-minute walk to town, 15 minutes to the night market street. While some will consider it a minor inconvenience, others may enjoy the journey and ambiance of being further away. Taking a tuk tuk or the hotel’s free shuttle service would mean driving to the “new bridge,” an eight-minute detour. During dry season, the temporary bamboo bridge is another quick option, taking you directly into the heart of town. The hotel’s street is dark at night; watch out for dogs on the road if you’re on bike.

This hotel is very popular throughout the year. Book well in advance.
