We organised all our accommodation and transfers to Our Jungle House by email, all efficiently handled.
Our transfer from Phuket in an air conditioned minivan was punctual and a pleasant 3.5 hour drive to Khao Sok. The village of Khao Sok is small and services the tourist trade with restaurants, accommodation, laundry, ATM, etc. Our Jungle House is 15 mins from the village, perfect for those preferring a quiet time in spectacular surroundings. There is a mix of treehouses and bungalows, in a lovely eco friendly environment. Huge limestone cliffs, jungle, the Sok river, it's really amazing. Our treehouse had bunks and a queen bed, lovely bathroom, balcony. Super clean. Mosquito nets for nighttime. Fantastic to hear noises of the jungle, lizard in room, but still had the mod cons. Open air restaurant on premises is great, cheap and huge variety of food available eg crepes or muesli or Thai for breakfast, beautiful fresh fruit, even great coffee!! We ate there every meal, you pay at the end of your stay and it was unbelievably cheap for the quality. Staff are really friendly, they can organise day trips or excursions for you, we did the elephant trek which was great. Also lake cruises, tubing on river, jungle treks. This place deserves 3 days stay at least, to explore the area and do some organised trips ( If you enjoy nature, rather than shopping and bars). It does get warm here so sleep quality is a bit affected, but you do get used to it.
