Mangrove’s simple wood-and-concrete bungalows stand on a slip of land overlooking the river, and on a hillside across the road.

The property stretches alongside the khlong with mangroves blanketing the far bank, and the original bungalows are set directly beside the water or a row back and closer to the road to Khlong Chao Waterfall. Since our last visit the owners added hillside bungalows and while these were full, they appeared to be worth seeking out if you don’t mind a fan only.

Bungalows have enough space to play charades with cats along with screened windows and framed paintings of flowers adding some cheer to the woven-bamboo walls, hardwood floors and tiled wet bathrooms with hot water. WiFi, kayaks and breakfast are all included in the rates, explaining why they’re a smidge higher than we’d expect for bungalows like these.

The property doubles as a restaurant with plenty of common space for checking your email or just chilling out as the water flows past and herons swoop into the mangroves. Guests can also chill out at a few smaller decks and hammocks spread out by the river. A young staffer who greeted us was helpful even though the place was busy at the time.

A couple of styles of rooms are available.

Mangrove offers air-con for an extra 500 baht, which seems like a lot when comparing to neighbouring Ban Klong Jao Homestay. Though we like the placement and feel of Mangrove’s bungalows, Ban Klong Jao offers air-con and fridge in bungalows that fetch the same price as Mangrove’s riverside bungalows cooled by fans only, and with no fridges. Both of these and Cozy House are good, so it’s really a matter of what’s most important to you.

As far as the scene goes, Mangrove falls in between Cozy House’s younger, more backpacker-oriented vibe, and Ban Klong Jao’s clientele that leans more towards flashpacker and family. Also in this group is Khlong Chao Garden, which has fan-cooled bungalows of a lower standard that are a little closer to the beach and go for about the same as Mangrove’s hillside bungalows.
