If looking to treat yourself, look no further than Lotus Village just north of the day market and Wat Sathani on the east side of the river.
Several different size rooms are available, but all feature classy Thai-style furnishings with deep brown polished wood floors that are a joy to walk on with bare feet. Beds are soft, comfy and covered in sumptuous linens. Thai art is tastefully hung from the walls, traditional axe pillows are found on the floors, and plenty of windows draped in elegant white curtains allow sunlight and air to pour inside as you wish. The best bungalows are perched on stilts above small ponds filled with flowers and fish, but anyone can relax beside the central lotus pond. Numerous flower gardens and tropical plants lend a sense of being in an ancient Sukhothai princess' garden. One of the area's best spas is found here, WiFi is free and the professional but relaxed Thai-French staff provide guests with everything they need, including complimentary breakfast and afternoon sandwiches. The overall design is very artistic, but there is an actual art boutique off the lobby worth perusing even if you're not staying here. Although prices are higher than most new Sukhothai accommodation, these rooms still offer excellent value for money.
