A stylish tropical retreat

What we say: 4 stars

With stylish, comfy rooms and a helpful staff, Ploy offers the best value on Maenam Kwai Road. Accommodation is in two whitewashed thatch-roofed buildings that face each other across a tree-lined lawn. All rooms are spacious, spotless and come with air-con, dark wood furniture and WiFi. The superior bags you a fridge and lovely open-air garden bathroom while the deluxe also gets you cable TV. A new, tastefully designed hardwood riverside cottage is also available. Decor in the cheaper rooms is a little hit and miss -- large white beds on raised wooden platforms a hit, framed Impressionist prints and tacky sculptures a miss -- but the accommodation still manages to feel fairly chic. The Ploy also has a medium-sized restaurant and an infiniti pool, both with smashing views of the river. Note that aside from the cottage, you cannot see the river from the rooms. All room prices include free coffee and toast in the morning and pick-up from the bus or train station is free. Discounts are offered for stays of two nights or more. Recommended.
