What we say: 4.5 stars

Perched on a breezy hilltop a kilometre west of the Mon village, Somchai offers a handful of simple, fan-cooled bamboo and wood bunaglows with large balconies that afford spectacular views of the valley below. While the balconies and views are the major selling points here, the bungalows are spacious and pleasant with woven bamboo interior walls, lots of screened windows, firm beds, simple hot water bathrooms, TVs and free WiFi. You really don't need air-con up here as it stays nice and breezy. A small open-air restaurant serves rice soup breakfasts, which are included in the room rates, along with simple Thai dishes and, as the name would suggest, outstanding fresh coffee. Staff speak just enough English to get the job done and they're almost as friendly and relaxed as the three dogs (one of them a pug) who are usually found lazing around the restaurant. A resident goose isn't quite so laidback, but she only adds to the quirky atmosphere. The disadvantage of staying here is that it's a solid 30-minute walk from the town centre, which includes a long uphill stretch. But for the views and fantastic value, it's probably worth the effort -- especially if you're looking for a "get away from it all" sort of experience.
