Balconies and the swimming pool have unobstructed vistas of chedi-dotted farm and scrubland at Kumudara, though the edge of town location means it is a hike to get anywhere else. This is an overall good mid-range choice as you’ll probably hire an e-bike or bicycle for temple visits, though it is still a long walk to the nearest cafe.

Unfortunately, and it's not the resort’s fault, but a public refuse tip as of mid-2016 has sprung up aside the track leading from the main road to the hotel’s entrance, which they’re going to have to do something about pretty quickly. Once you’ve arrived though, it’s a fine spot.

Quite the view.

Reception and the rickety decked restaurant area have been around a bit, but the last of their older, single-storey chalets were being demolished as we arrived to make way for additional rows of the new deluxe, duplex-style rooms. These two-storey, modern constructions can look a bit like a local council’s attempt at user-friendly public housing, but the interiors are spacious and tastefully decorated with good balconies, both up and down, providing views over the fields and stupas.

The furniture is sturdy wood and rooms come with efficient air-con, hot-water showers, safe and tea-making facilities. WiFi isn’t bad, but be warned the last time we stayed it was turned off of an evening when the restaurant shut down. The pool is a decent size, though there aren't too many umbrellas to go around, and it's a shame, for such a longstanding resort, that the garden is still so sparse. The restaurant has a pleasant outdoor area though the inside isn’t great if the weather’s no good. Meals get mixed reviews, aside from their above-average buffet breakfasts, but it is a fine shady spot under the acacias for an end of day cold one. Both we and other guests have experienced staff problems of varying natures before but a new manager has been installed so hopefully guest experience shall improve.

We like Kumudara -- we do hope they are able to get rid of the garbage tip.

Note for the prices below, high season 2016-2017 rates were as yet unannounced on our visit.
