We stayed in the Half Moon Treehouse - we chose this resort specifically because we wanted to be as close to the wildlife as possible. We loved it - from our verandah we saw monkeys and hornbills. If you are afraid of creatures you may be better off somewhere else - the bathrooms are open at the top so you shower with a view of the jungle - fantastic! The jungle is incredibly noisy at night, but this seemed to work like white noise on a baby - slept like a log! The staff were lovely - very laid back but friendly and helpful. The food was lovely - recommend the Penang and Massoman curries. We did a night safari with a guide, ?Dang?, and saw loads - spiders, scorpions, centipedes, moths, slugs, mouse deer, porcupine, loris, owls. The guide commented that Our Jungle House is one of the better accommodations for wildlife, as it is actually in the jungle rather than in the village. We also did the river tubing - after a hefty jungle hike, what better way to spend a hot afternoon than draped across an inner tube gently bobbing down the river, watching monkeys and mangrove snakes.
We stayed in a variety of places and types of accommodation in Thailand and this was our favourite - beautiful rustic accommodation and lovely staff in a fabulous setting with loads to do (especially if you are interested in seeing wildlife). Wish we had had longer.....
