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.

We have stayed at Baan Maka twice and love the tranquil setting. Our chalet was simply but adequately furnished. Linen and towels which were changed daily were spotless. The restaurant served freshly cooked food and there was always hot water for making drinks. By the lake there are places to sit to enjoy quiet time. Baan Maka arranged a birding... More

Serious birders and tourists visiting Kaeng Krachan National Park would be wise to consider Baan Maka as a comfortable base. The handsome stucco chalet-type cabins (single and duplex units) built several steps off the ground, have good-sized balconies with attractive outdoor furniture, a good sized bedroom and a large bathroom with hot water shower. Indoor furnishings, made of natural and... More

A great base for visiting the national park, lovely rooms and probably the best restaurant I've ever experienced in a guest house, the food was wonderful! Lovely garden too, very peaceful. There is no reception though, so let them know when you're arriving. Also if you want to visit the park, the chalet can help you but it's worth asking... More
