The spacious and well-equipped rooms at Baanrimnam Resort overlook the Bang Phra Canal in a serene spot within easy walking distance from the old town.

Designers took full advantage of the setting by way of a long canal-side patio dotted with tables, benches and steps leading down to the water. During our stay we grabbed some food from the night market and dug in while watching herons and kids go fishing on the opposite bank. It felt like were in the countryside despite the old town and markets being a five- to 15-minute walk to the north, starting with a bridge that abuts the property.

Modern spacious rooms.

Rooms come in two-floor duplexes made of concrete and each is fronted by glass doors and windows tinted so dark that you can see the river even though passersby can’t see you. All rooms are outfitted with the same amenities but if a flight of stairs is not an issue, we suggest the upper-floor editions thanks to the private terraces attached to them.

Interiors have a straightforward design incorporating firm beds raised off tiled floors, screened windows and wall-mounted fans in addition to air-con. You also get a flatscreen TV, fridge, kettle, instant coffee/tea, desk, WiFi and plenty of room in bathrooms with hot-water showers set behind curtains. It’s function over form here, with no decoration on walls painted a very light shade of violet.

A ground-floor room we looked at had a firm Thai-style daybed that made it suitable for families. You’ll also find some larger suites at the far end of the property, but these were full during our stay.

Rooms are cleaned daily and the manager was notably helpful, offering advice on onward transport and asking if we needed anything when she saw us passing reception. There’s no restaurant but cold drinks are available and rates include a Thai or Western breakfast served in an open-sided dining area—just get there before 09:00 or you’ll miss out.

The canal marks the border between Trat’s capital district and Nong Samet district, and you’ll find nothing of interest to the south. A restaurant does Korean barbecue next to the resort, and from there a bridge cuts north to access the east end of the old town. While the car park makes Baanrimnam a no-brainer if you have a vehicle, we also found it convenient enough when using only our feet to get around.

If you prefer to stay right in the old town, Rimklong Boutique Hotel has similarly equipped rooms with more style. Also note that Baanrimnam Resort has no relation to the Baan Rim Nam found on Ko Chang; the name, meaning “house by the water”, is commonly used throughout Thailand.
