The hosts spoke good English (no issue with communication) and could tell that the proud husband and wife owners spent their best effort to upkeep this restful place. Owner provided direction to the resort on the day of check in. It is advisable to check in before sunset. Our children enjoyed the simple warm porridge, corn flakes and American breakfast with organic salad from nearby organic farm. Happy chicken = happy eggs for breakfast too. We enjoyed the time spent with the ponies and chickens, and the 2 friendly house dog. We tried wall climbing, trampoline and boat paddling. All within the resort compound. The best was an evening tour to a neighbouring organic farm on the owner’s modified tram. The sunset, cool breeze and educational tour was marvellous. Away from the city and support the locals. Decided to stay for home cooked dinner (by the wife), instead of looking for a restaurant in town. We didn’t regret any of our decisions. During the dinner chat, we came to know that the hosts used to operate a restaurant in Bangkok. IG worthy too if we slow down our pace to look for the perfect frame. The stay made our trip to Khao Yai a memorable one. …
We had a great stay in Ville de la Vie. Easy to acces Khao Yai National Park, beautiful park, garden, swimming pool and farm animals. Cottages were wel equipped and clean. Warm welcome by the very friendly owner and his staff. Good restaurant, breakfast but also dinner.
A family run B & B style hotel with farm animals, very suitable for families with children. Enjoyed breakfast with eggs picked from the farm with a little something extra. Perfect for those who want to escape from the bustling city life.
Nice resort in the middle of nowhere, friendly owners, ideal if you are looking for isolation and rest away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Ponies, hens and pigs, will be your companions during your stay. Quite expensive but clean and good private rooms with steam bath. You need to have a vehicle, because the resort is far from the main attractions.
As the resort was fully booked when we enquired, we asked whether we could pop in for lunch instead. Ordered crispy pork knuckle, minced pork, spicy beef soup and fried soft-shell crab...really yummy meal cooked on-site by the owner's wife...there is a small sala in the premises which exhibited paintings by artists with some disabilities eg. painters using their mouths to make brushstrokes etc...some really nice paintings and a strong message of support which was impressive... We managed to see one of the twin occupancy villas...each villa has a steam room...there is a nice chill vibe about the place, good food and such great hospitality that we left feeling really full and happy!
