Cannot fault either resort....both, too a very high standard re; accommodation and food....both approx 600baht a nite....american breakfast available at both...Chomdao chalets are solid red brick whilst Chuanthanapanya are wooden. Just one point...a bottle of wine is 400 baht at Chomdao and 800 baht at Chuanthanapanya, but you can get wine in local Tesco ( 200-300 baht) and both resort restaurants will cork at no charge......no website for Chomdao.

Got the price of wine wrong way around....800 at Chomdao and 400 at Chuan :)

Approacing SDD from east, turn right before the beginning of kerbed traffic island for Chomdao and for Chuanthanapanya turn left at the first set of traffic lights at Bangkok bank.....enjoy :D

I really like Chuanthanapanya Resort - restaurant is great - but do book if staying over a weekend as lately it's been booked out. Breakfast is so-so - I wish the owner who is a very niuce bloke and approachable, would put some of his night time cooks on breakfast duty.

Not it's about 600 baht a night - don't book online if you want the cheaper rate.

Not many good places for breakfast in SDD, The Black Canyon at Tesco closed and is about to be replaced with a hair solon - erghhh

Pink House doesn't open till 11 am I believe :)

Still - the disco is going great - stumps still irregularly opening.

If any one up to a bit of a lads night out I'll always make the drive up to the "Big Smoke" of SDD! It's always a fun night out and I like the locals.

Nana coffee shop lives up to it's name - awful food and opens weird hours - after 9am for breakfast and closes often early.

Very sad Black Canyon is gone :) however I still have a cappuccino machine at home that I use with my Laos Beans.

The next best coffee is the petrol station leaving town heading to Sakon Nakorn - lately they give a free plate of watermelon with every order - nice! Coffee as good as Black Conyon.

Pink House is on the road to Khok Si - turn at the lights in the centre of town and head out keeping left, if you take the right fork you end up at Charoen Sin

PM when your in town.

Walk in rate is still 630 a night as of last week.

Stumps is up the road heading back to the town - just before bus station and the traffic lights turn right for two blocks, stumps on the corner - same soi as the disco.

The black canyon at Lotus is open again, looks pretty much the same as before, I "think" what happened was a change of local franchisee, same staff though, no real idea, but it's back. And KFC seems to have had chicken available over SongKran which is unusual.
