The Soppong River Inn is at the top of Lonely Planet Thailand's list of accommodations in Soppong and, in fact, it is not surprising that natural accomodations of the inn have started to win a wide recognition.
If you would like to experience living in a hut, a bamboo room or a traditional Thai house, natural accomodations of the Soppong River Inn are the best choice. The Soppong River Inn offers several natural accomodations, ranging from two-storey cottages to primitive hubs and tribe houses, beautifully set on the riverside of the Lang River.
Each of the natural accomodations is unique in design and decoration, and the Spartan style of each room perfectly blends with modern equipment, such as en-suite bathrooms, hot showers, western style toilets, queen size beds, and television with DVD players. All the rooms come with cotton sheets and thick one hundred percent cotton towels, complimentary soap and shampoo as well as fresh flowers. Staying in such a room is an ultimate pleasure - you breathe the air of natural inspiration in your almost primeval bungalow, set amidst tropical gardens and enjoy all advancements of modern days, a high speed internet included!
The Leelawadi Cottage is the most luxurious two-storey accommodation with a teak spiral staircase leading upstairs to the sleeping quarters with a queen size bed. Downstairs, you will enjoy lying on a rattan sofa and watching movies from an extensive DVD movie collection.
The Bamboo Rooms are designed in a local Shan Temple style; they are spacious and have twin-tiered roofs and ceilings, and Thai style decorations.
The River Rim Cottage is constructed of teak, stone and masonry and has a private verandah, overlooking a drop down to the Lang River.

The Baan is a simple but spacious Thai teak house with a living room and two small bedrooms.
The Lahu Lounge bungalow is a genuine, most authentic bungalow, built of teak and bamboo and having a futon on the floor instead of a bed. Although it looks more suitable for Robinson Crusoe, it is most often preferred by families with kids.
