The overall (big) size of the chalet makes them a bit less cosy, but the overall location (surrounded by the river, rainforest and wildlife) is truly amazing! Chalets are overall clean, comfy and facilitates are great (good local good; don't expect any hamburgers, hotdogs or french fries, but truly great local food!). Don't expect 5-star luxury (e.g. shower is sometimes a bit cold, mosquitos are (obviously) everywhere (bring DEET insect repellent), but you're in the middle of an ancient rainforest. A fantastic experience!
Tip: take a stroll along the river, to the neighboring (tiny) village or into the jungle at the 'back side' of the logde complex (make sure you ask the logde staff whether a stroll through the rainforest is allowed; in case of elephants nearby the logde walking into the jungle is not allowed and dangerous).
