Passing the familiar tourist villages of Lac and Pom Con where most villagers operate their homestays and earn their living from tourists, we move to Chieng Chau village which is more tranquil than the tourist hubs.
|Sparkling gem amidst green fields |
Built by the paddy fields of Chieng Chau village and inspired by white Thai culture, the Sol Bungalows Mai Chau are an excellent option for those seeking a little more Western comforts but still want to experience a soothing Thai ambiance.
The resort offers private bungalows and two-storey houses to serve all types of accommodation from deluxe couple rooms to family suites, as well as a large traditional stilt house that can accommodate up to 30 people on simple mattresses laid on the floor. Each bungalow affords views of the breathtaking paddy fields and the surrounding mountains from a small private balcony. Except for the stilt-house meant for large groups, the remaining bungalows feature stunning views of the mountains, the pool or the paddy fields.
Sol Bungalow has an intimate feel and excellent facilities including a swimming pool, a restaurant, and a huge yard for team building and sport activities. You can cool off with a swim in the pool or laze around with an icy-cold thirst-quenching drink and enjoy the sweeping panorama or dance along the local tribes’ traditional music performance at night.
The majority of the hotel staff are local tribe people who cook amazing traditional Thai food and are well-trained to meet the standards you would expect from a hotel.
From the comfort of the bungalow, you arrange various adventurous trips into the great surroundings. While children are fully entertained with the cool swimming pool or biking, parents can take a leisure trekking tour around the charming valley.
