A unique luxury experience
Along the dirt road to the Lom’Lae resort, there’s a turning that runs through rice paddies, usually populated by water buffalo cooling themselves in the watery muck and munching on the grass.
You’d hardly expect there to be world-class accommodation at the end of this road, but there it is: three luxury bungalows around a small swimming pool, overlooking the water, along a beautiful stretch of beach. Every room here has a separate, private ’sala’ that serves as a living room and the furnishings are all Javanese antiques. These are fan-cooled, while a few hundred metres back on the hillside behind are four newer one- and two-bedroom villas with air-con and swimming pools shared between two villas. It’s a great place for couples, but they also make families welcome, providing baby cots and Javanese beds for the younger kids, and your older ones can sleep out in the sala, all at no extra charge per person or per bed. Food is prepared for the guests in a small gourmet kitchen right next to the dining room and lounge area. All told, it’s one of the most unique and exclusive luxury experiences available in Thailand.
