The Thai House is a traditional golden teakwood home stay, built in 1990. Since that time, it has been receiving many visitors from all around the world. Its location is unique: so close to the city and yet a world apart. As you will learn, the traditional Thai style has many attributes, so that it is comfortable in the tropical climate and rains. The rooms are open on two sides, providing cross-ventilation (there is no air conditioning), and the verdant nature and fans keep the rooms at a comfortable temperature.
Traditional Thai houses are composed of numerous structures that are added as the family grows. This Thai House has three parts (with six independent rooms), all joined on an upper terrace (a modern bathhouse is adjoining this). Meals are served on the lower floor. Two terraces surrounded by lush nature provide symphony for the senses; birds singing, monks chanting, fragrant flowers, hundreds of green plants, the occasional dog, and more. The Thai House can accommodate up to 50 people for lunch and very often groups travel to rom the Thai House by boat.
