We stayed one night for a weekend break. The property is packed with beautiful surroundings and quiet. We are not the bird watchers yet saw a family of hornbills without any effort on the next morning. The staffs and owner are very helpful. I would definitely go again. Note: There is no reading lamp. Weak mobile and wifi signal. Great... More

This is an out of the way special place to visit. For my wife and I it was a welcome change from the urban experience we had in Bangkok. The facilities are a little primitive but that is what you would expect at a place like this. We had air conditioning, hot water and a sit down toilet. Food was... More

Baan Maka is in the most beautiful location. The grounds go on and on. We dearly wished we could have had an extra day on our birding trip to Thailand just to wander around here with our bins and cameras. The chalets are rather basic, but clean, as is the bathroom. Wifi is a bit hit and miss, and only... More

I would highlight how Baan Maka, through his owner Goong, helped me to plan a whole birdwatching stay in Kaeng krachan. The provided everything I needed: transfer in and out from Bangkok, accomodation, food, and above all, a good birdwatching guide (Mr Piak) and good advice about where to go (including the hides, specially Ling Sun). Room was no frillls... More

My wife and I spent two lovely nights at the Baanmaka Chalet Resort. Staff were friendly, food good, costs reasonable, clean, cabins had air conditioning, and Wi-Fi was adequate in the restaurant area – really no problems, although internet access was not a priority while birding and enjoying nature. We will highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in... More

I really enjoyed my two night stay at Baan Maka Chalet. The grounds are beautiful, lots of shady places to sit overlooking a gorgeous lily pond/lake where I saw three different species of kingfishers. It is popular with groups of birdwatchers. Trips into the jungle or to waterfalls can be organised by Gunn, the owner. My room was clean and... More

We're very lucky to have this place only for to of us. So we've got our private jungle paradise with funny squirrels, lots of blue geckos, amazing colourful birds & spectacular lake blooming with lotuses. Good service & friendly owner with his awesome dogs made us feel even more welcomed.

A good base for birders. Although the room was a bit old but was good and clean. Only toilet paper, soap and towels were provided. Surprisingly that I was not bitten by mosquitoes when I was in Baan Maka but was bitten in Citin hotel in BKK. Lol. Free coffee and milo were provided in the restaurant. Price for foods... More

Lovely and spacious chalet with large veranda. Nice quiet setting. Furnishings in the chalet were of high standard, although the bathroom was more typical for Thailand as compared to western bathrooms. Good and cost effective laundry service. Good WiFi connections at restaurant considering its rural location. Very pleasant place to stay and convenient for visiting Kaeng Krachan National Park.
