Village Rooms and Matsu Houses
When it comes to enjoying your stay, rooms play the most important role! This is why we will first discuss the rooms at Village Park Country Resort. This resort has 32 rooms in total and they are divided into two categories - Village Rooms and Matsu Houses. Both categories offer room and laundry services, airport transfers, and access to free wireless and Ethernet Internet, cafe and swimming pool. All the rooms are strictly ‘no smoking’.
Village Rooms are further divided into four types; Romance Rooms, River-Sera Rooms, Villas and Private Rooms. Each room comes with facilities such as central air conditioning, minibars, tea and coffee set, safety box, hair dryers, LCD TV, balconies, bath and work desk. Each room is spacious, airy and comfortably furnished. Village Rooms are geared toward solo travelers, couples, businessmen and families.
There are three types of Matsu Houses, namely the Matsu, Bay Window Room with Jacuzzi and Log Cabin. Matsu Houses are amazing if you prefer privacy. They are smaller in size as compared to the Village Rooms, with a floor area of 35 sqm. However, most of the amenities are the same.
To sum it up, the rooms have all the basic necessities you would need plus a number of luxurious amenities. To top it off, every room comes with a great outdoor view.
