Go for Borklua Fa Sai Resort’s large wooden chalets scattered across a sprawling and well-maintained garden rather than the characterless rooms in their block. Borklua Fa Sai Resort is located a little way south of the village off Route 1257, so though it’s not very practical if you don’t have wheels, it’s a good option if you do.

Though there’s no sign in English, the resort is visible from the road and you’ll see the chalets off to the right side of the road about a kilometre from the village centre. The stilt chalets are spacious and fan-cooled, the larger brick ones with two rooms, while air-con rooms are found in a two-storey building, though in Bo Kluea it would be very rare to need air-con. Interiors of the chalets are roomy with fridge, TV, WiFi and hot showers, while the beds are provided with plenty of warm blankets and a duvet. Bathrooms could do with a makeover though a wide wooden veranda out front makes up for it. While the rooms are okay, they don’t have the pleasant vibe of the chalets -- if these are full, we’d try another resort. Room rate includes breakfast served at tables by the pond at the bottom of the garden and though we were perfectly happy with the Thai-style fruit, omelette and stir-fry, they did offer to dig out some bread for us. Low season rates, which you ought to be able to get for weekdays even during high season, are very reasonable.
