Has a pool far from town centre
This small resort is situated a few kilometres south of town along the outer ring road, making it viable only if you’ve got some wheels.
If you forget the location and focus only on the accommodation, it’s probably the best that Si Saket has to offer. The cheapest rooms are set in a three-storey block and come with hardwood floors, plenty of space, high ceilings, TVs, mini-fridges, desks, fairly large private balconies with benches and good-size bathrooms with hot-water showers behind curtains. The rooms we saw appeared very well kept. Some of the low-end rooms face the road and get a bit of the vibration from passing trucks, while others look towards abundant greenery at the resort’s centre; ask for the latter as they’re no more expensive. Orange villa-style rooms and larger suites with sofas are set further from the road and closer to the small swimming pool.
You’ll also find a wide shared deck with tables shaded by several trees; free WiFi; a sophisticated-looking restaurant; a coffee shop and, true to the name, a ramshackle treehouse out in the parking lot. The younger staff member who showed us around was very welcoming, though an older staff member came across more curtly. As with everywhere else in Si Saket, expect only the most basic of English to be spoken here.
