This is as close as you’ll get to a Pai-style resort in Soppong, with manicured garden, varnished wooden restaurant and an @ in their address. The garden delightfully leads down to the river with rock gardens and strategically placed seating areas, and their spacious restaurant and cafe is beautifully finished in varnished teak. It is primarily but not exclusively aimed at domestic tourists so the Thai food is excellent and not too badly priced -- there are a few okay Western options too if you’re riced out.

Chalets are superbly situated and well appointed, with flatscreen TVs for those long cold winter evenings in the mountains. They are very pleasantly decorated in Lanna style, complete with lovely balconies. It may seem a bit pricey for Soppong but the chalets are top notch and while they’ve taken a leaf out of Pai’s book by tripling high season rates, the low season deals are excellent and you may well find some website promotions the rest of the year.

The Rock has mountain bikes for guests to use and helpful staff can organise rafting treks along the (very) nearby river. Breakfast is included in the room rate.
