We had a great experience in this hotel, but you need to know that is very very very far from everything and that in some point they are not prepared to have guests. The service is very good because they are polite and nice, but being there is like being in a ghost hotel where nobody nows you are there,... More

I don't know about others but really love cool water especially in the pool. The pool was very nice and simple. The room I had with my boyfriend was massive like it could fit 10 people in that room. Massive bathroom as well. Everything is good but a little complicated with language but went very well ! If you like... More

this has to be the most remote hotel i have ever been to, smack in the middle of a jungle, one of your reveiws states the noise of the generator. this is not true it is the Cicadas, the place is magical. and the furniture in the rooms is something to behold.the hole, experiance was something we will never forget

After spending 5 hours online looking for a retreat before our last few days in Bangkok, we landed at Mom Chailai with hopes for a peaceful, quiet nature-retreat. In short, it was not what we expected and overpriced for what we got. There are some things that are out of the hotel's control that unfortunately impact the idea of being... More

A small secluded resort, rooms are spread in the forest. The least expensive room may fit young people (third floor, no elevator, away from the parking lot), while the medium-priced one we used is fine for a vacating mature couple. Internet service is poor, breakfast is minimal. I guess it OK for a 2-star rating.

We've been living in Bangkok for six months. We got here on Day 2 after martial law had been declared and the following day, a coup d'etat. After the pollution, noise, filth, traffic jams, continuous political unrest of Bangkok, Momchailai Forest Retreat was a cool, peaceful sanctuary amidst mature trees and the sound of cicadas. Win, the English-speaking ethnic Mon... More

Nestled in the jungles of Sai Yok this resirt gives you a true forest experience. if you like peace, quiet and nature you will love this place. A little far off you need your own car to get here. Rooms and bathrooms are clean, I had a nice cottage on a height surrounded by the trees and long bamboo. Great... More

I agree, this place is a bit controversial. It can be a great, original experience or a nightmare. It depends what you are looking for. It is hidden in the Thai jungle, rather difficult to find, no shops around. But if you have your own transport it can be great as it is very exclusive, quiet, with “natural look”, the... More
