Expensive riverside retreat

What we say: 4 stars

Under Western management, the River Side Resort fills a void for comfortable, classy accommodation among the backpacker-style digs of Nong Kiaow. While riverside bungalows are nothing new to the area, the similarities between these and other choices stop there. These sprawling bungalows have hardwood floors, extra-thick mattresses from the same supplier as five-star Bangkok hotels and en-suite bathrooms with antique washbasins and hot showers. Each bungalow has its own unhindered view of the river, best appreciated from the large balcony. Remember this is an eco-lodge, so don't expect air-con or TV. The on-site restaurant is one of the most picturesque spots in town. Stay here and you may not get to Muang Ngoi. Reservations are recommended in high season. At the time of writing, internet is provided via a silly paid USB stick system meaning those carrying iPads and iPhones won't be able to access the internet.
