Garden Home Nature Resort offers spruced up rooms with helpful staff and a lush garden and orchard in tip-top condition, with a bonus in the form of a row of tethered bamboo rafts by their restaurant—perfect for an iced coffee, cold beer or pork laap.




Chalets come in various guises from simple fan-cooled and bamboo decorated A-frames towards the rear, to larger, stone-faced air-con garden chalets in the middle and substantial stilted wooden versions occupying the river front spots. They even have a row of cheap fan rooms in a small block next to reception although with budget bungalows available and plentiful we couldn’t see much point in those unless you’re really counting every baht.

Cute cottage–style rooms.

Small fan chalets are fine, but there is quite a step-up to the air-con ones which are larger, have better furniture along with fridges and TVs. All options include balconies which appear to increase in size along with the price, culminating in the delightful river view ones. Interiors are well-maintained and clean, though we’d say gardening is more their strong point rather than interior design. At least the absence of much decor does make the rooms uncluttered and airy. Bed linen was crisp and white and bathrooms more than acceptable.

Facilities and services for visitors were the most comprehensive we saw in Tha Ton with their small reception covered in maps and print-outs including trekking and rafting information as well as boat and bus details. Inner tubes are available for floating down the river and there is motorbike and bicycle hire plus a massage service. Scooters were a bargain 200 baht and bicycles between 80 and 100 baht per day. Private boat hire was advertised at 2,400 baht or 400 per person for a ticket on the public service.

Simple, but well–lit interiors.

Last but not least, their riverside restaurant has new floating rafts to complement their terrace and indoor seating. Their Thai food is more authentic and better quality than you’d find in many local resorts.

With restrained high season supplements, Nature Resort’s budget rooms are a good deal. Their air-con garden chalets fall between two stools somewhat, but the riverside ones are some of the best around if you’ve got some baht to splash.
