We planned two days and one night in Khao Sok and for this we booked Mountain view Bungalow direct through Khao Sok Paradise Resort internet page, but, as it was under maintenance upon our arrival, we were upgraded to a tree house, of which we selected a Standard as it had Windows both in the room and in the bathroom – perfect. The tree house has all necessary equipment, even TV (we never even switched it), A/C (very quiet!), hot water, shower and bathroom. All was freshly renovated and very clean. The decor was simple and pleasing, very suitable for living in nature (albeit with all modern comforts). There were warnings about possible visits of creepy-crawlies, but (pity almost) we had none, probably because of dry season. Note – they provide only soap bars, so if you need shampoo or shower gel, you will have to bring them along or buy in the village mart.
We took food at the hotel – lunch, dinner and breakfast. Both European selections (had only one salad) and Thai food were very good, and had Thai was superb, same as fruit shakes – perfect cooling after jungle trekking. Additional pleasure was to enjoy company of resident geckos and squirrels as well as to observe butterflies and pond herons hunting down in the grass. Though note – if you will be having breakfast early, socks are advisable, as it is rather cold.
The only hitch was bed. It was hard (no, very hard), not too big for too persons and only one blanket is provided (though second was given when requested). However, not overly comfy sleeping conditions were atoned by possibility to fall asleep under sounds of crickets and wake up hearing whoops of gibbons.
We booked trips (night safari and lake trip) and transportation back through Khao Sok Paradise Resort, all was arranged very well, maybe not with German exactness, but still everything worked perfectly well. Our driver was most considerate and we reached our hotel in Phuket in short time and very conveniently.
The Resort people also provided all necessary information for walking around on our own, which is very simple, indeed.
Summing up, the stay was very nice and atmosphere was like visiting family in their home. Very commendable place!
