Hotel Facilities & Highlights
Your Host & The Team
“My husband and I discovered the then-sleepy village of Pak Chom about 20 years ago. It was a beautiful day, children were playing on the banks of the Mekong, birds were singing in the bamboos - truly a picture of how Thailand was about 50 years ago. We fell in love with the riverside location and decided to build a country retreat despite the fact that were no other Bangkokians in the area. Since then we have gradually improved the houses, added a small pool and discovered beautiful walks and excursions. Simple home-cooking is included in the price and, although their English is limited, the Mekong Villas team does everything to give guests a memorable experience. Treks can be arranged to an old communist stronghold on Phu Tok with magnificent views over the Mekong, or canoe in the early evening on the 6th longest river in the world. The tranquil Historic Park of Phu Phra Bat is only an hour and a half away, while Chiang Khan, 30 minutes away, has restaurants and gift shops in a street of attractive old teak houses.”
Welcome to Isan
Though Thailand’s largest region with 20 different provinces, the northeastern area of Isan is also the country’s least visited region. While foreigners flock to Thailand’s capital of Bangkok, the tropical southern islands or mountainous north, Isan tends to get overlooked yet offers a wealth of distinct cultural customs and traditional cuisine that still live on to this day. Other parts of the Land of Smiles have ridden a wave of modernisation or globalisation, but Isan remains primarily rural, offering a relaxing holiday destination where travellers can catch a glimpse of the past while still enjoying staying in an Isan boutique hotel or Isan resort.
Pronounced ee-san and also written as Isaan, Isarn, Esan or Esarn, the word “Isan” comes from the ancient Pali language for the word “northeast.” While the term is used to described Thailand’s entire northeastern region, discerning travellers will soon find that many different destinations, indigenous peoples, highly localised dishes and even various dialects make up the area with no two parts of Isan exactly the same.
“Offering majestic panoramic views of the Mekong River and across to Laos, these 3 homes comprising 6 double rooms are set on a peninsula around a small swimming pool amidst a beautiful garden.”
Kim, the discoverer.
