Just a short drive away from Damnoen Saduak floating market.

Next time you're headed to the boonies for a quick weekend-getaway, check out Khum Damnoen in sleepy Ratchaburi.

Set amid tropical green fields and orchards, this new resort offers cottage-style teakwood villas with thatched roofs—a step away from the usual traditional Thai house stays you'll find dotted around the area. In keeping with the surroundings, the interiors make use of natural-earthy tones with heavy wood accents under warm light fixtures. 

There are a few types of villas on offer, both with and without pool access. If you’re feeling fancy, check in to the vast deluxe Jacuzzi Villa, which comes with its own living room, a regal claw-foot bathtub and an outdoor Jacuzzi. To top it off, the villa opens out to the resort’s long rectangle pool, with prices starting from B4,706.  

There's an onsite cafe for your early morning caffeine cravings, or for a romantic evening meal, head to the resort's pond-side restaurant for both Thai and international food in one of the gorgeous over-water rattan seating pods.

The resort is only a short drive away from Damnoen Saduak floating market and, while you're in the area, you might as well hop over to the newly opened woodland eatery, Tree Shade—a small cafe set beside a picturesque pond surrounded by jungle—to enjoy a coconut pudding beneath strings of fairy lights, or savor a sweet bite of toddy palm cake on a bench beside the water.
