The bungalows at Cliff View are more expensive than those next door at Banana and Otherside -- but that's because they are far better.
Bungalows are less rustic and more refined, and rooms come with better linen, mosquito net, bedside table, older-style cable TVs, solid wooden floor boards and clean hot water bathrooms with Western toilet, plus air-con in the more expensive rooms. The best rooms are at the back of the property with verandas looking onto typically verdant paddies that stretch all the way to the impressive namesake cliffs in the distance. This makes sunset here difficult to beat. The bungalows feel quite luxurious and despite having bamboo walls, are still tight and feel secure enough that they prevent insects from entering and keep the cool air-conditioned air in. There’s WiFi at their riverside terrace. Breakfast is not included. If you're looking for a quiet bungalow that doesn't feel like you're camping, this is for you.
