This is the fourth year running that we have stayed at Baan Orapin with owners Opas and Anuchana. We have watched it grow, year by year, always just a little concerned that perhaps it might be getting just a bit too big and just a little too impersonal - But our worries were unfounded - They have managed to do the trick of growing but still remaining the same incredibly friendly, helpful and intimate place to stay. This year there's a new small swimming pool that is an absolute delight - we worried a bit that it might mean hordes of kids all day, but we needn't have - all to ourselves most afternoons and a great place to hide from the heat of the day. Opas arranged cars for us, including pick up from the airport when we arrived from Myanmar, and Pepsi and the establishment staff - who have been there since day one - are still there, quietly doing anything that's needed or asked for - including serving up the delicious choice of fresh cooked breakfast - none of your serve yourself lukewarm buffet stuff here! They have built a new building at the front of the premises that is let to Soep Moi Arts - a delightful shop - which also serves to effectively deal with the previous problem of road noise in the accommodation at the front. Only the odd noisy dog left to disturb the peace and tranquillity!
