Great for families
Located beside the river and just south of the old city walls, this small resort possesses a lot more character than the bland name suggests.
Most rooms are in the form of white-washed Grecian style cottages and each is a little different from the next. The cheapest "Luzern" and "Amsterdam" editions are set in round structures with loads of space, lots of windows, polished concrete floors and long cushioned benches that run along the walls. The pricier rooms are massive and have one to two bedrooms plus separate living areas. Interesting touches include king-size bed on round wooden platforms, faux fireplace, vintage dolls and brightly coloured stained glass windows in enormous bathrooms. All rooms are fully kitted out with air-con, flatscreen TV, home theatre with karaoke options, fridge, WiFi, bathtub and rooftop terraces with grills for a little do-it-yourself barbecue. Facilities include a swimming pool, bicycle rental and a restaurant where complimentary breakfasts are served. The resort seems aimed at holidaying Thai families, but staff speak a little English and anyone is welcome.
