We went for 2 days to the raft houses. The nature is just outstanding beautifull. And thats the only positive thing to say about Tree Tops. When we arrived from the night train and arrived at the pier to take the boat to the houses we were told that we would leave in 10 minutes. We had to wait more... More

This was my first visit to Thailand and I had no expectations. We wanted a taster of the jungle and opted for Khao Sok due to its close proximity to Phuket. We booked Treetops online because it seemed to offer a good range of experiences for a very good price. The resort arranged for a transfer from Phuket town -... More

It was a good experience. Very beatifull in the Khao Sok National Park. The Treep tops bungalows were clean bit a bit scary beacause of the power went off for like 4 hours. But the view on de floating bungalows made everything good.

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
