In February 2013 I did stay at the Phu Na Come Resort in Dan Sai, located just north of the Dan Sai town, in a kind of private park of at least 20 rai land. At first I thought it would be such a typical older Thai resort : expensive, old and not much value for money. And yes it is a bit expensive but very good value for money. Feeling home here started with the fact that the front-desk lady walked out to the parking to welcome me at the resort. And when I told her I thought the rooms were a bite expensive she advised me a bit cheaper but also good resort 20 km further. But when I saw the lovely swimming pool with restaurant and the very comfortable room I was sold. Although there was not much staff (my only complain) the staff was super friendly and service minded. For me that is one of the most important things of feeling at home in a hotel.
Normally I like to start riding very early in the morning, but this time I decided not to skip breakfast. And that was a good idea! Fresh baked croissants, home made bread, freshly baked eggs and a cup of tea while overlooking the garden. The all resort is environment friendly and you really have the feeling you are in the middle of nature. Some buffalo's were walking in the garden and some staff were working in the vegetable garden. As the garden is so big, there is a walking-trail that goes thru the garden and around the small pound in the middle. And if you want some more to do, there are bicycles for use. As you see I loved it! Web-site : PhuNaCome Resort
