The Rooms
The rooms all have double or twin beds with mosquito nets. Decorated with the wooden furnishings and bamboo walls of traditional Mon living, they have showers, a toilet equipped with septic tank and an outdoor deck with a sun lounger and hammock. In the evenings, wick lamps are used for lighting creating a romantic atmosphere - but guests are also given key chain torches too.

The Facilities
Guests can enjoy an evening meal under the stars at the resort's floating restaurant which is lit by hundreds of lanterns.

The Jungle Bar provides a wide range of beverages including cocktails, beers, wines and soft drinks and traditional Mon music is played by an orchestra after dinner.

The Mon tribes play an important role in local custom in this part of the country and the hotel works closely with its local communities. An ethnic group from Myanmar (Burma); the Mon tribes were responsible for the spread of Theravada Buddhism in Myanmar and Thailand.
