“Very Quiet and Scenic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

The resort is situated away from the main hubbub of the park attractions on the lake, however it is a mere 5 km away for tours and various attractions. But this means it is very quiet and peaceful at the Boathouse Resort. They have nice rooms, in the decor of wooden quarters on a ship - detailed and quaint. However, there could be more natural light in the rooms. They have kayaks to take out on the lake anytime you want - provided they have not loaned the paddles to whomever...The service is nice...but naive, they speak very little English, so a little Thai helps if you want anything out of the ordinary. The people were very nice, but just inexperienced at problem solving anything out of the ordinary. But their attitude helped me get over it. They have EXCELLENT WIFI over the entire resort - easy free and everywhere!
You must go out on a kayak to watch the sunset over the resort, behind layers of mountains; it is reflected in the mirror-like surface of the lake and it is absolutely gorgeous! A must see.

Room Tip: The rooms are all very nice, though a bit dark; if I were to go again, and I probably will, I will s...

We were wanting a couple of nights near the Kaengkrachan National Park and after the first night in basic (leaking pipes, cockroaches and grime infested room) but economical "hotel" we sought an improved location. And boy, did we do well!
My first impression was, as we approached the foyer, that it would be out of our price range. And yes, it was dearer than the budget of 1500 baht max, at 2,800, but this included a very good dinner and full breakfast, attentive service, immaculate and enormous infinity pool, views to die for, amazingly quirky and yet still comfortable rooms; I could go on for hours!

Room Tip: Steep steps to upper rooms, but staff willing to help with luggage. Some suites more private than ot...
