Otherside Bungalows

A great escape

What we say: 4 stars

With a recent addition of new upmarket bungalows, Otherside has something for everyone. The original bungalows are set away from the river and have mountain views. The bungalows without private bath are simple shacks, very rustic with reasonable beds, mosquito net and a hammock though we’re sceptical anyone could lie in it without bringing down the whole building. The bungalows with attached bathroom is a definite step up, with optional air-con, large windows with wooden shutters on all side, great for letting in fresh air and light. The windows also have security bars so you can safely keep the windows open at night. Finally, five fancier solid wood bungalows were added in 2015 – all line and face the river (and were built up high on concrete pillars in case of flooding). These have floor to ceiling glass windows, air-con, decent linens, wall mounted flatscreen TV and an enormous ensuite bathroom with washstand, hot shower and above average finishings. WiFi is available at their restaurant. All rooms are very reasonably price considering their peaceful location on the other side of the river from town. Whether you choose a view of the mountains or the river, it’s a great choice.
