Thy Ath

Thy Ath

Great value lakeside rooms

More on Banlung

Beautifully laid-out, spotlessly clean rooms with a view across the lake — except from the ground floor — distinguish Thy Ath from its older, shabbier neighbours, some of which call themselves “lakeside” in a decided stretch of the term.

Travelfish says:

The owner is a very friendly lady, who cheerfully showed us around with perfect English. The rooms are relatively spacious, with pretty decorative touches, all in all simple but elegant. Each room has a balcony, except the ground floor, with views that look out across the lake and beyond.

The hotel has an associated restaurant, and a small shop with basics like batteries and snacks. You could also put together a picnic from the fridges should you feel so inclined. This is a fine flashpacking option by the lake.
