In a sleepy enclave of green paddle fields in the Saraburi province, it was a kind of surprise to discover an imposing boutique resort hidden in such an isolated landscape.
When you want to let go of everything, seeking peace undisturbed, one of the choices to consider ought to be Baan Souchada. The small check-in point is the main centre where all the essential facilities unite. The resort also owns the rice fields, corn farms, organic vegetable gardens, fishing lagoon, and small cottages in which buffaloes, goats and pigs are raised and grown naturally.
As I opened the door to my room, l smelled a sweet aroma as if l was entering a spa. Looking around, l found the room controlled by pale orange and brown wood shades. There are actually 23 villas and nine rooms in total, and each have different layouts and corridors where the massage service is available upon request. The room’s interior gives a feel of staying in a luxury hotel whereas the luxury amenities are offered in room. In front of the room is a natural pond you can visit for fishing, yoga, or even doing nothing.
The types of food available are limited. Even so, you’ll be overwhelmed with palatable Thai food throughout your stay. The resort has only one dining room. The menu focuses mainly on its home-grown fresh meals.
WHY I’D RETURN
l’ll definitely come back for the plump pillow, and the bed lets you know the true meaning of comfort. Outdoor activities are so enjoyable: bird watching, animal feeding, and that laidback afternoon looking across the rice fields. It is a genuine eco-experience which I consider this is something really rare and special nowadays.
