Newly made, organised and efficient
Phu Doi is possibly the best option to stay in Umphang if you've nothing booked and are simply turning up.
There's 25 rooms available, varying in size and bed count, all set within a couple of large teakwood houses which have been purpose built as a guesthouse. 24-hour coffee available, a restaurant is on site (high season only) and a small shop is next door -- handy for basic supplies. The grounds are large, include a pretty lake and it's possible to camp here as well. Phu Doi also seems to be the most organised outfit in town with a handful of day trips and tours available with their own staff.
