Orchid Hibiscus Guesthouse

Right next to Thai Thai Guesthouse, Orchid Hibiscus was among the first guesthouse/resorts to open in this area, and the fact that it was completely full of holidaying Europeans when we visited is a testament to its reputation for quality and hospitality.

Even more so than Thai Thai, Orchid Hibiscus is definitely a small resort — not a guesthouse despite its name. The colourful grounds feature loads of flowers and tropical plants, a medium size swimming pool with plenty of sun chairs, a spa and several relaxation zones with woven basket hammocks and tables for playing cards. There's even a fenced-in aviary where numerous exotic birds have plenty of space to stretch their wings. Judging by guest reviews and pictures, the rooms appear to be very comfortable and tastefully decorated, most come with front porches, and the most expensive bungalows have private jacuzzis out front. A few rooms occupy a 100-year-old Thai wood house. Breakfast, which the owner claimed is the best around, oddly comes complimentary with the cheaper rooms but not the more expensive ones, and there's an unfortunate 30 baht per hour charge for WiFi. The welcoming owner also told us that he generally only takes bookings through the resort's website, which is run by someone else (that's how we understood it anyway), so if showing up as a walk-in you may be turned away.
