Phu Than Resort
Well equipped bungalows
43/1 Moo 1, Sangkhlaburi T: (084) 750 1648, (087) 925 9978
This new addition to Sangkhlaburi features a line of comfortable wooden bungalows stretching down to the river on the road that runs parallel directly east of Si Suwan Khiri Road.
This place is especially suited to those who don't want to be bothered by staff or other travellers -- the sole staff member is a super laidback guy who hangs around on his hammock and in the tiny "reception" area, which is nothing more than a little shack with a desk. The wooden bungalows are smart, however, with plenty of space, wide beds, fridges, lots of screened windows, TVs, air-con, free WiFi and pleasant front porches with tables and chairs. Hot water bathrooms are large, but the one we saw had a faint, not-so-pleasant scent to it, though it wasn't so strong that you could smell it inside the main room. Phu Than can organise boat trips and is right around the corner from several other accommodation choices. It's a solid choice for flashpackers and offers more comfort and lower prices than the air-con rooms at nearby P Guesthouse.
