Ruby True is a quiet, tucked away spot with low wood and bamboo chalet blocks scattered around a well-tended and spacious garden.

In a town full of generally very friendly people, Ruby True’s staff are particularly welcoming and manager War War is clearly the star of the show. Visiting on a quiet day, we found it very difficult to get away. Decor both in and out is varnished, woven bamboo slats and wood, and interiors have a very cosy feel. Boutique this is not, but rooms are clean and comfortable and all come with air-con, attached hot water bathrooms, WiFi, fridge and tea- and coffee-making facilities.

Both superior and deluxe rooms have small wood balconies out front and bathrooms come with tubs. Deluxes are slightly better appointed and larger but we couldn’t see a lot of difference. Plenty of bougainvillea scattered around the garden and the lawns make great outdoor eating and sitting areas during dry season. Breakfasts get good reviews and you can choose local style ones such as mohinga if you ask in advance. They do open for lunch and dinner though ‘downtown’ is only around a 10-minute walk away. All round, this is a very good spot. High season rates are slightly inflated for what you get, so do check online for discounts.
