Chi Phat Homestays

The Chi Phat CBET project has 12 guesthouses and 5 home-stays that are official members of the project.  Membership in the CBET (Community Based Eco Tourism initiative) means that the facilities are monitored by the CBET committee, they are being cleaned regularly, and that facility owners share a portion of their revenues with the community fund, allowing the project to become sustainable.

Bookings are made on a rotation basis to ensure business is shared equally among the accommodation providers. However, visitors may also choose their preferred guest house or home stay.

Staying in one of the CBET accommodation provider member’s ensures quality accommodation standards and that your money is shared with the community

What is the difference between a guesthouse and a home stay?

A guesthouse has at least 2 rooms, while a home stay has only 1 room allocated for visitors in the local family’s house.  If you prefer a quieter, more intimate village experience you may want to choose a home stay. If you want to share your time with other visitors, you may prefer to choose to stay in one of our guesthouses.

Bathroom facilities consist of either a squat or sit down toilet (all home–stays are equipped with western style toilet) and a water cistern with scoop will function as your shower.  Laundry services are available on request.

Accommodation providers have a folder of information which includes an introduction to the family, a code of conduct that covers expectations for culturally appropriate behavior, and a set of pictorial communication cards that will assist you in communicating your needs to the host.

The Chi Phat people request that guests respect the local culture by dressing modestly and adhering to a code of conduct provided
