I agree with all the raves for Baan Orapin. It is a beautiful place, with gorgeous bungalows and gardens, great breakfasts and delightful staff. I can confirm that there is a pool now. I'd recommend booking one of the new bungalows at the back, because the one I stayed in at the front looked out onto the car park. I stayed there on my own, and didn't really need such a huge suite, but it would be great for a couple. Also, I wasn't crazy about the location - unless you want to visit the riverside bars, there wasn't much of interest around and it was a long hot walk(or short smoky tuktuk ride) up to the old city. So, it depends what sort of holiday you're looking for.
