using teak and bamboo plywood, these rooms are spacious and incorporate
a twin-tiered roof and ceiling, inspired by the local Shan temple
architecture. The exterior is finished with a combination of teak and
masonry using a special stucco, made with the reddish soil found in the
mountains here. Floors are old, hand-hewn teak. Along with the brass and rattan ceiling fans, the roof
design allows for good cooling. The bamboo rooms have real mattresses (a
rarity in remote Thai villages like Soppong) with 100% cotton sheets
with one of them having a queen-size bed and the other having two twin
beds. Each room includes Thai style decorations, silk wall hangings and
rattan table and chairs, along with a refrigerator with mini-bar
service, including complimentary bottled water, coffee, and tea
service. En-suite bathrooms, constructed of ceramic tile, masonry and
glass brick, have western style flush toilets, hand-made ceramic bowl
sinks, and gas hot water showers. The Bamboo Room rate is 700
baht/night or 4200 baht/week (the seventh night is free). Longer term discounts are available.
Each of the rooms has a private entrance, and they are adjoining our terrace over the river.
