Charming spot just off the river
Located just off the river and a short walk south of the Death Railway Bridge, the small Sabai@Kan Resort features a pair of two-storey buildings facing a small swimming pool and garden.
A motivated team of receptionists showed us a couple of large and immaculate rooms with comfortable beds raised off shiny white tile floors, shower curtains in modern bathrooms, nearly floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking trees and the pool, and extras like air-con, fridge, desk, TV, WiFi and safe. Traditional Thai floor cushions and silk decorations add splashes of warmth.
Standard rooms are located on the upper floors while superiors are very similar but with ground-floor porches within steps of the small and well-kept pool. Triple rooms make it possible for small families to stay but the guests we encountered were mostly older couples. A Thai massage room is located next to reception near a small car park.
Despite the lack of river access, we liked the quiet location within a quick walk of the Death Railway Bridge and several restaurants, including Pai-Kan.
