Stayed at jungle house in January... The place is lovely... Located 15min walk to koh sok village but this distance makes you feel you are in the jungle.
I had some dealings via email with raymie, who was fantastic, providing excellent service and booking us a transfer from surat thani, straight onto a lake cheowlan overnight oasis on the floating rafts (highly recommended) then 2 nights at jungle house..
On arrival we had been upgraded from a river house to the garden house, which was lovely, large and spacious, private balcony and outdoor bathroom.. All very clean and felt new... My only gripe with this bungalow is that it's the closest to the restaurant and everyone walks by to get to it... So at 7am we could here kids running about, and suitcases being pulled down the path... This did wake us early both mornings.
Reception was great, did an error on our bill but amended straight away
Breakfast was good and dinner, great service by the team there...
This is an Eco friendly resort but it doesn't feel like it, standards are high, accommodation is great - you don't miss hot water, tv's or air con... Your in the jungle :)
There is a river beach with some chairs to sit on and relax, a lovely nature trail.
The hotel is a 20min walk from koh sok national park, it has a great walk upto the waterfalls, I can imagine this resort being at its best in the wet season, when the waterfalls are big and the rivers are high... This is when you can do the lake tubing.
Definitely a place I'd recommend for everyone to visit.
