“Wonderful staff, a little far from the road”
Reviewed February 15, 2014

This is a great place for peace, quiet and relaxation. The grounds are beautiful and the family that runs the place are really incredibly friendly and helpful. The only reason I gave 4 instead of 5 is that it is located quite a bit away from the main road. After a beautiful tour, I wanted to have dinner in the small town but didn't want to walk the whole way back in the dark by myself. Also, the power was down much of the day so I could not charge my electronics, which I needed to use for booking further travel. Mama's cooking is really fantastic, but a bit expensive and stops at 9pm. If you want food after 9, you're a bit too far from other restaurants to get anything. But other than that, the stay was quite lovely. Mama even gave me free coffee and toast before I left back to Krabi!

We have stayed here only one night, but with a lot of pleasure! Family is very helpfull, and you really feel like home. We have Booked a 2 day tour at kong, and everything was perfectly arranged. The national park is very beautyfull, and not overcrowded with tourists yet. We recommend to do a overnight tour included stay on a raft house on the lake, unforgettable!

We have just spent 5 days at the fantastic Palm View with Kong and his lovely Mama and Papa. They have a beautiful set up, a handful of lovely clean, secluded cottages, a short 5 minute walk from the main town, but set back enough to feel remote. They are located near the National Park entrance which to me is the best part of Khao Sok.

Kong and his family are incredibly welcoming and friendly and arranged a great half days hike and a trip to the lake for us. The accommodation is fantastic value. If we head back to Khao Sok I would definitely want to stay here again.

Room Tip: We had a new concrete tiled bungalow which was semi detached but very quiet and clean.

Family was very nice and helpful! It is very quiet place, close to the nature. It is also quite close to the "city center" so you can do some shopping. Mama is cooking very good and doing best banana pancakes that I ever ate!
It is my recommendation to stay there for all travellers!

As soon as you arrive you are greeted by 'mamma' and her lovely family who will cater for your ever need whilst staying there. We stayed in the cheapest room available and it is pretty basic, with cold water and a few small holes in the ceiling but with plenty of bug spray you are fine. Bedding is lovely and clean and a mosquito net is provided. The setting of these huts is beautiful with all the food served in the restaurant being grown by the family themselves and is very reasonably priced. At the end of our trip Mamma's son walked us into the nearest town so we could get cash and then gave us a free lift to our next hotel and was very reluctant to take any cash from us - something which is very rare in Thailand! If you are going anywhere near Khao Sok stay here!!!

Room Tip: the more expensive the room - the further you are from reception area

Wooden huts on stilts with ensuite bathrooms (inc. hot running water). Very basic but for £5 a night, who's complaining?

Just a 5 minute walk from the park entrance.

There is a seated area at the front with food, water and beer freely available. Half decent breakfasts too. Food was a little expensive but the Thai dishes were good.

Give the laundry a miss, I've just put the whole let in to be done again.

As every one has commented, the family that run its are very nice and very helpful.

The mama and papa of the place are really nice and try to help you as much as they can. Mamas food is also very delicious. The only problem we had with the first bungalow that it really smelled because of the humidity, however we got a new one and it was fine for the 2 nights we spent there.
