When we last arrived at this lovely spot set back from the main road in the centre of town, a group of local women were peeling tamarind and the entire lobby was full of tamarind shells.

Photo of Som Chaineuk Bungalows
That pretty well sums up the scene here -- cheerful and local. One of the staff member/tamarind peelers was quick to get up and show us the rooms, which are lovely and offer excellent value. The fan rooms closer to the road are simple but well kept with tile floors, plenty of windows and cold water bathrooms. Standard air-con rooms are housed in a white concrete building, and are the least attractive. If you can, spring for one of the wooden bungalows further back under the shade of rambutan, rose apple and, you guessed it, tamarind trees. These boast hardwood floors, air-con, TVs, hot water bathrooms and great verandas out front with tables for relaxing. The gregarious owner speaks a little English and also runs a floating hotel on the lake called VIP Floatel, and can arrange rafting and touring packages. Note that on the hotel’s brown sign, the name is written in Thai but it does say "Hotel" in English.
