Tree Tops Floating Bungalows - Khoa Sok Lake My friend and I were the only guests at the floating bungalows during our stay. The bungalows were fairly basic but OK. The amenities were on the land and up a short hill but very good, clean with tiled floors with shower. The basin for shaving & cleaning teeth is located adjacent... More

We planned our whole holiday around this experience and we were so excited about being at one with nature and seeing the gorgeous Khao Sok.... it didn't quite work out that way! Tree tops is old, dirty, ghost like, smelly (of cats) place where not only is the chef the driver he is also the baggage boy! The Manger was... More

We were looking so much forward to the so called Rainforest Experience - it turned out to be the worst experience ever. Tree Tops is a dirty, ´ghost-like´, moldy place with absolutely no charm or atmosphere. Food is almost not eatable, the rooms are terrible and smell of mold and hardly any of the tours you are promised to go... More

What clients booked for and what they expect is sometimes not the same. Most of our clients enjoy the natural settings and find a real tropical rainforest experience. We are sorry that we cannot please all our clients and we will try harder in the future. More

After 10 previous trips to Thailand, this has be the most disappointing of all. The rooms were horrible, the cook was awful: our first meal was macaroni drenched in tomato ketchup. Suffice to say, the cook was a better driver. The trips (elephant trekking, walking in the jungle etc) could all have been arranged by ourselves, for a fraction of... More

We are sorry to hear this is your most disappointing trip ever in Thailand. If you are not happy about the room at the moment, you should inform the reception and would change you to other room. We do everything to keep our clients satisfied. The meals are simple and straightforward, you should not expect a luxury meal when you're... More

I wish that someone had warned me before I went there!!!! Worst “tour” experience ever! The staff only spoke 3 words of English "Wait, 10 minutes". Those 10 minutes usually turned into several hours. Complete disorganization and lack of any planning by the staff. They would drive us somewhere where there weren't enough seats in the car, so we had... More

Stayed at the raft houses - basic does not describe the accommodation - read instead dilapidated, and no sign that much needed maintenance is likely to be carried out. Add to that, the fact that sullen and lazy staff who would rather smoke "non-branded" cigarettes and sleep all day than communicate with or provide guests activities promised or details about...

We booked the Rainforest Experience with two nights at the Tree Tops lodge in Khao Sok and one night in a raft house on Cheow Lan lake. The scenery is spectacular and probably the most beautiful place I've ever been in my life, however this is not a review of the lake / jungle it is a review of Tree... More

My sister had recommended this after she had visited a couple of years ago. She'd spoken very highly of it and I can see why she found it so memorable. We opted for the "tropical taster" option which consisted of 3 days / 2 nights - one night in the tree house and one in the raft house. The tree... More

I'm sorry to say, our experience in Treetops did not live up to our expectations. The staff is friendly and our night at the rafthouses was great. The transfer from Donsak Pier and to Surat thani airport were on time and very good. The meals were generally of good quality. But these are the only positive things I can say.... More

We are sorry to hear you had a bad experience with Tree Tops Jungle Safaris. When strong wind, all trees are moving and break the rubber band around the tree between floor and ceiling. When at the same time it is raining it leaks and makes the tree house wet and smells damp from the tree. This is all done... More
