Charming yet compact grounds are elegantly designed, with flowing water features, fishponds, frangipani and a decent swimming pool as centrepiece.
The place almost feels like a small castle thanks to walls made of stacked slate slabs, numerous stairways, ornate woodcarvings, rooftop landings and luxurious wooden salas. Rooms, while not huge, are comfy and artistically done, with tiny paintings of single flowers and a rich colour scheme relying on deep crimson, ochre, sea green and dark wood. Some rooms boast hanging rattan nests and slate walls in the bathrooms, while others have funky circular archways that separate sleep space from chill space. The best room has a stairway that spirals to a flat roof terrace, but all are spotless and equipped with air-con, TV and fridge. The resort is nowhere near a sandy beach, so you'll probably want a scooter if staying here. The sister property, Keereeta Lagoon, has a similar design, with no swimming pool but closer to the beach, on the river in Khlong Prao.
