Air-con and a pool in Tonsai?
Dream Valley is, at time of writing, the only place in Tonsai to offer a swimming pool—and it’s an attractive one with two tiers and spacious decks.
Surrounding the pool are the brushed concrete superior rooms with terraces, desks, fridges, safes, flatscreen TVs, firm beds on raised concrete frames and modern bathrooms with hot water. Freestanding cottages fetch a bit more cash and while neither of these room types are particularly memorable, they are the most luxurious digs in Tonsai at research time (June 2018). You even get electricity all night long.
A second wave of older rooms come in orange freestanding bungalows that stretch back for some distance into the forest beyond the pool. This is the Dream Valley of yesteryear—it’s like a different resort and is only worth checking out if you’re having heatstroke and need air-con for as cheap as possible. The air-con bungalows are musty and old, and the only redeeming feature is the air-con itself.
