Narisala Resort in Ban Dok Mai, Roi-Et, Thailand

Travel News Asia Videos Podcasts Latest Travel News Asia Friday, 22 August 2014

[HD videos below] In Thailand, no matter how far off the beaten track you think you are, chances are that you won't be all that far from a hotel.

Small hotels, sometimes with just a few rooms, are scattered all over the country, and while some are quite basic, you can frequently find a little gem that is cheap, clean, has a nice bed, good shower, reliable internet and either has a little restaurant where they will cook food for you, or there will be a restaurant close by.

Remarkably, many of these hotels still do not have websites, and as they generally charge between 300 and 700 Thai Baht nett per night, inclusive of internet and breakfast, for many it is simply not a priority.

The Narisala Resort in Ban Dok Mai, Suwannaphum District of Roi-Et Province in Thailand is one such example of a great value little resort.

Located just off Arunprasert Road, the Narisala Resort is surrounded by rice fields. It features 26 rooms, of which 20 are standard rooms and 6 are what the resort calls VIP rooms.

The Narisala also has a cheap same-day laundry service, and a small restaurant with a shop that sells essentials such as snacks and drinks etc.

The beds are of surprisingly high quality for a property of this level, as are the good air conditioning units in each room, and the Wi-Fi is reliable and of sufficient speed for most people's needs.

Room rates are THB 550 for the standard rooms and THB 800 Baht for the VIP rooms. For most, the standard rooms are more than adequate as apart from the interior design, there are very few differences between the two room categories.

If you do stay at the Narisala Resort, you should make a point of eating, at least once, at the small Khrua Lung Samran restaurant which is just two hundred metres from the hotel. The restaurant is run by a family and is open for lunch and dinner. Because of how very fresh everything is - especially the meat, the restaurant has some of the very best larb gai baan, tom yum gai baan, and larb ped you are likely to eat anywhere in Thailand. It is also very reasonably priced too.

The Narisala Resort does fill up from time to time, especially during major festivals such as the Rocket Festival, so reservations - by phone - are advised.
