We stayed here with Bangkok based birdwatching friends, who had visited previously. The host is very knowledgeable and a good bird photographer. He showed us species which we would otherwise have missed. The location is very convenient, providing easy access to Kaeng Krachan national park, one of the best birding spots in Thailand. The local food is delicious, the beer... More

Samaran Bird camp is an excellent choice of stay for wildlife photographers. Just minutes away from the Kaeng Krachan entry point, the hotel is geared to cater to wildlife photographers with early morning 5.30am full breakfast and packed lunches / snacks if required. Neat and clean rooms, well maintained premises, great food and friendly staff adds to the value. While... More

A great hotel outside the fabulous Kaeng Krachan National Park. A great stop off for birders and non- birders alike. The owners are friendly and you can get an evening meal there too. We only stayed one night but could happily have stayed longer. The gardens and views from the room balcony are exceptional.

Songkran, the most famous festival in Thailand is coming. If you are fed up with crowd in the town, just move yourself to another chilling and relaxed place which surrounded by nature in Phetchaburi instead. Only 10 minutes far from 'Kaeng krachan national park' and foothill of Pa-nern-tung mountain, that 'Samarn Bird camp' is located. There are plenty of well-arranged... More

Food was very good and the host (Khun Samarn's wife) was very pleasant and accommodating. We did see plenty of birds during the trip in... More

I stayed here for three nights for birdwatching in Kaeng Krachan. The rooms are spacious and very clean. The food is excellent and you even get breakfast at six before going out in the park. The park gate is only 5 minutes by car. Many birds can be found in the gardens and around the feeders, too.

I do not have any complain on the accommodation. The people working there are friendly and helpful. However do be careful when you book a bird guide with them. I was very disappointed that they provide the bird guide was a bird photography guide. He only took us to a few places to take bird photography. This isn't what we... More

then there is no better place near the Kaeng Krachan National park. Accomodations are clean and comfortable enough but nothing to get excited about, the food is local and good, but I rate this resort 5 stars for the bird experience. There is no better guide than the ever smiling and knowledgeable K. Samarn. He knows the area's bird life... More

Spend 3 nights there, and used Samarn Bird Camp as our base to go into Kaeng Kacharn NP for photography. Ideally located, big garden, quiet, clean, good beds, and fantastic Thai food - what more do you want. Khun Samarn took me to some of his jungle hides where you can watch and take photo for birds and mammals at... More

This allows easy access to the national park and is a very clean and well managed lodge. The owners are very obliging with a retired husband and wife team running it, the latter most endearing and hard-working. As to be expected, the place runs on early starts and there is plenty of birdlife in the garden. Meals are predominantly local... More
