Easy to miss and well tucked away, Karinthip Village is a large resort once you do find it.
Much of the space is taken up by a large pool surrounded by lush, well-maintained gardens. Even the car park is spacious, and features a 700-year-old 'magic' well; the restaurant is a big one and reception is very roomy too. Quite how they found so much space down these tiny lanes is a mystery. On arrival it looks like it's going to be an upmarket 5,000 baht a night place but the rates are actually a good deal, with well furnished and well appointed rooms making this a fine value option.
