Photo of Little Eden
Little Eden has a cute jungle-style garden with a small but unusual swimming pool that actually incorporates some of the original hillside boulders, plus a spectacular sitting area overlooking the river. There’s not a lot of room here but they’ve managed to squeeze plenty in besides the pool: coffee shop, restaurant/bar with pool table, car park, riverside terrace, a row of wooden A-frame huts, a newer two-storey building with six rooms, plus a wooden house with larger family digs. The sum of the parts manages to create a feeling of intimacy rather than claustrophobia and because it’s longstanding, there’s a lived-in feel yet with obvious signs of good upkeep.

The tiny A-frames are somewhat cramped, but cheap and clean. Rooms in the two-storey block overlooking the pool are spacious, simply yet tastefully decorated, and clean and very comfortable. Larger family suites can sleep four people. There’s no air-con but then in Soppong you don’t usually need any. Wi-Fi access is beamed throughout.

The restaurant has pretty good and reasonably priced food, including a range of Thai classics plus some Western options and even half-decent pizzas. Conveniently the owner is also a licensed guide with excellent English, so plenty of trekking services and information on the surrounding area are available, including one-, two- or three-day programmes. Prices vary considerably depending upon the number of people going and the length of the trek so have a chat to the boss. (See our trekking in Soppong section.)

Eden is an easy five-minute walk to the village centre and bus stop, or the also very good Soppong River Inn, should it be full. Room numbers are limited and this is popular so in high season, book early!
