Photo of Thanicha Healthy Resort
Classical Thai music plays softly in the open-air lobby, which occupies a heritage house and has dark hardwood floors to go with traditional grass mats, sit-on-the-floor tables with axe pillows, Thai antiques and faded black and white photos of Thai kings and Amphawa residents of yesteryear. The lobby’s entrance faces the canal and is fully open-air, and the resort serves quality coffee and tea so it’s worth a stop even if not staying here. Rooms are set in a newish three-storey addition just behind the lobby. They did an excellent job to make the newer building fit into the Amphawa atmosphere; the entire centre of the building is open-air and has an inviting courtyard with more tables to go with tropical plants and little fish ponds. While functional, rooms themselves are a bit sparse with blank white walls and firm beds on raised platforms, but they do have TVs, fridges, free WiFi, lockable bureaus and modern hot water baths with tasteful sliding wood doors. Buffet breakfast is complimentary, and members of the pleasant English-speaking staff wake up before dawn to prepare homemade meals for monks on early morning alms round, a custom that guests are encouraged to participate in by paying 30 baht for the food.
