We stayed in the Romance Tree House for 3 nights, which had a lovely setting next to the river – perfect for a dip after trekking through the jungle. The Tree House was nice and clean, with a mosquito net and fan over the bed. The outdoor bathroom was fine, although the cold showers took a little getting used to, especially in the morning! We even had a resident frog and lizard for our time there. The restaurant offered good value for money and excellent quality food, plus free Wi-Fi.
The nature trail nearby was a good introduction to the jungle, taking around 40 minutes to complete the circuit. The staff at the resort were helpful, and had useful information about the local area. They checked in with us each evening to see how our visit was going and if we needed anything.
The Jungle House is the last stop in the park, and it’s around 20 minutes walk to the minimart and other hotels/restaurants. We booked the elephant trekking and lake excursion through one of the other hotels, as it was a better deal. The transfers from Our Jungle House were really expensive to Phuket, so we hopped on the public bus which was 180 baht, rather than 2000 baht for a private minivan.
The lack of a/c and jungle noises are things to consider, but wouldn’t stop us from returning to Or Jungle House.More
