I stayed at Baan Khao Sok in a tree bungalow for two nights.
The bungalows are very basic, with beds slightly off the floor and as my sister was staying with us, a mattress was put on the floor for her. The bathroom is also very basic with a very weak shower.
The room was clean however and it was a treat to stay in a treehouse!
The restaurant has a good menu offering a wide variety of Thai and some western dishes. All the food we had was very tasty. There is also good WIFI in the restaurant only.
We booked a day trip to the lake and went on a trek in the jungle and into the caves which was a really good day and would recommend.
The family that run the resort really make this place wonderful! They are very warm and incredibly friendly. Nothing is too much trouble and we were able to book our onward transport to Phang Nga bay via them.
As we were staying in a treehouse, we did have to share our accommodation with the local creepy crawlies! Including a very large spider and an incredibly noisy mouse! So if you are not a fan of wildlife then maybe stay else where, as it is unavoidable when staying in a treehouse!
Overall we had an enjoyable stay and liked the novelty of staying in a treehouse but the rooms are basic and a little too expensive for what you get. But I can't fault the great staff that run this place.
