Avatar Spa Mountain Suites in Ban Rai, Uthai Thani, Thailand

MTGB recently visited Ban Rai, Thailand - a small village about 3-3.5 hours northwest of Bangkok in lovely rural Uthai Thani district. It's home to the unique and beautiful Wat Tham Khao Wong which is absolutely worth checking out.

In Ban Rai is a really cool and trendy hotel resort called Avatar Spa Mountain Suites (if you're looking to book online it's sometimes called Avatar Miracles, Avatarn Miracles, Avatar Resort). It was so neat and unique that we had to share it with you. Everywhere you look there's an interesting detail which gives the place a ton of character. It has a great vibe. Suite rooms during the off season were about 2,000 baht per night including breakfast; it's worth it just to check out the place, relax, and experience a stay there.
