All you can see from the entrance of this British-run resort is the cosy open-air reception area and sports bar where the latest Premier League matches are usually on.
A raised concrete footpath then takes you back to where smart wooden villas are lined up in rows, and from there the resort keeps going further to a cluster of budget bungalows. It's here that you'll find the cheapest wooden fan rooms, which are surprisingly cool, spacious and inviting thanks to hardwood floors, ceiling-mounted fans, good beds with mosquito nets, several windows and large hot-water bathrooms. These come with porches and are a lot more spacious than the slightly pricier bamboo fan bungalows that have TVs but no porches. Several dark wood villas are also available with large glass windows, TVs, fridges, air-con, terraces and tasteful paintings of lotuses over the beds. A larger two-bedroom villa that sleeps five represents excellent value for families. The woman who showed us around was very personable and seemed to be willing to go the extra mile to ensure a good experience for her guests.
