We were recommended to stay here and we don't regret it at all.
The place is super-well maintained, the accommodation (we stayed in a 950 Baht Jungle house) was awesome. Well build wooden/bamboo bungalows with a comfy bed, mosquito net, decent size bathroom, small balcony and everything is very clean. Although it is the end of monsoon, no moldy smell whatsoever. The orchestra sounds of nature at night are amazing.
It was dark as we arrived so the gigantic limestone cliff right outside our door was a very impressive view to wake up to, as was having the Sok river right outside our doorstep. A beautifully clean and fresh stream, ideal to swim in.
Staff is very friendly and helpful. There is a little play area for kids too.
Only minor point I can think of is the food. We weren't impressed with the choice, the quality nor the prices of food. Breakfast is boring, toast tastes sweet, they serve instant coffee :-( We are used to this type of breakfast in Thailand but we expected this beautiful (not budget) place to serve a better food selection. Therefore we decided to eat elsewhere fro lunch and dinner. There are quite some choices within a 20 minute walk so don't feel trapped in this place.
Upon checking out I wasn't refunded for the key deposit but a quick email and everything was well sorted; key deposit was refunded onto my bank within 1 day. Great service!
Would definitely stay again.
By the way, do not miss out on a lake trip. The lake is just stunning with the most amazing views you can think of. Dense jungle, wild monkeys. Just breath-taking! Don't bother staying in one of the raft houses though. They are heavily overpriced. Better return to Our Jungle House for the night ;-)
