On a good day we’d describe Saranya River House as a well-appointed, chic guesthouse with a welcome pool and a fine location.

When we first visited during high season, classy then new Saranya River House was buzzing with enthusiastic guests and attentive staff, but two years later—during low season—service, staff and punters were non-existent and we even had to wait thirty minutes for someone to come and unlock the hotel doors. Low season in these parts can be very low and long and we can understand enthusiasm waning and wage bills needing to be reduced but the bottom line is decent discounts during quiet months might at least get a few local weekend tourists in to cover overheads.

Rooms are quite smart and modern.

To be fair it still all looked spick and span; the spotless and well-appointed rooms were ready for use and the pool was free of dead leaves, but we wouldn’t vouch for much low season service at the in-house tour desk, coffee shop or restaurant. Despite a slightly cramped feel (there’s a lot squeezed into a small space here) the rooms are reasonably size and bright and airy with simple but classy decor. Furniture including beds is good quality, lighting is thoughtful and rooms either come with small private balconies or give onto the small pool.

Bathrooms are equally clean and sharp and all rooms have cable TV, WiFi, fridge, air-con and tea and coffee making facilities. The pool side area features a couple of tables and chairs and plants dotted around and large window render the cafe and reception area bright and welcoming and make for a good spot for a patio drink or spot of lunch.

Have a splash.

Only front rooms have a river view, while the spacious family or pool-side rooms would be a good option, price-permitting, for anyone travelling with kids.

We can’t help but feel this small, boutique style would suit Chiang Mai or Chiang Rai more than Tha Ton, but their chic rooms will undoubtedly suit some. Overall we’d say standard rooms are ok for high season—just knock a couple of hundred off for low season.
