More of a low-key resort than a guesthouse, upwardly mobile Baan Tawan lies firmly in the flashpacker range in terms of quality and pricing.

Set down a quiet lane off Raddamrong Road, Baan Tawan is well signposted and easy to find—just walk past the school on the way to the bridge and take the first right. Rooms are pleasant, but the fantastic garden is the guesthouse’s main draw. The stilt chalets are set amid lush and well-tended tropical gardens that merge into lawns as they stretch down to the river. Despite the rural feel, the guesthouse is only a very short walk from the centre of town.

A variety of accommodation options are on offer, with deluxe rooms in a block to the side of the entrance courtyard, or cottage rooms in a second two-storey block looking onto the garden. Their chalet options are a decent size, and each comes with a small balcony, while more expensive ones look onto the river. Deluxe rooms are fine, come with small balconies, and are in a newer building, though they lack the garden setting and may catch a bit of noise from the car-park. We counted eight of the misleadingly named “cottage rooms”, with four each on ground and first floors, all of which have spacious balconies.

Whichever type of room you opt for, you can expect a comfortable and well decorated interior. Paint schemes are in subtle shades and broken up with polished concrete and bamboo panels and the artwork is tasteful. All rooms come with ensuite bathrooms, air-con, fridge, reading lamps, WiFi and safety deposit boxes. Even the bathrooms are large and well trimmed with blue tiles.

A restaurant and cafe lets you hang out on site, plus trekking and travel information is available. We found staff to be friendly and helpful with good levels of English. Peak season rates are as bad as anywhere else in Pai, but through the rest of the year accommodation does live up to its price tag. Overall, this is a very good address.
