Pick of the private resorts
Set in a string of resorts just out of Chom Thong on Route 1009, friendly Little Home Resort offers a good deal and is the clear pick of the bunch.
There wasn’t too much imagination aesthetics-wise with the layout: two parallel rows of vivid, orange-painted chalets line a concrete driveway. There is a nice, though somewhat over-formal garden off to the right. The individual chalets could have benefited from a less rigid disposition and decent balconies. While the interiors are fine, they’re not the sort of bungalows where you could sip an end of day beer and admire the view. The interiors are a slight improvement on the exteriors, with very minimal decor, but they are clean and comfortable -- and white rather than bright orange. Choose between fan-cooled or air-con versions, while ensuite bathrooms with hot showers are in all. You can of course sip a beer or get some decent Thai dinner at a reasonable price (by Inthanon standards) in the resort restaurant, and there’s a covered sala sitting area in the garden as well -- it’s just a shame the view’s of over-manicured gardens full of non-indigenous plants. WiFi is available throughout and a simple breakfast is included in the room rate.
Staff are friendly and helpful, though with limited spoken English, they clearly cater predominantly to the local market. Rates, especially in low season, were the best value we could find for the area -- the adjacent resorts may look flashier but they have flashier prices too. Still, if Little Home doesn’t tickle you, you could always ask around in mid-week during low season and you might find a better offer!
