A more than 4-hours ride from Phuket, we ended up here in the rainforest national park of Khao Sok.
We have selected this resort because of the treehouse concept. Want to be back to the jungle and feel the nature, this is the place.
However, because of the quiet surroundings, it was quite difficult to sleep the 1st night. Its ok, we manage to pull through the night.
Although we do not have much sleep, but we still have so much energy to explore the river and many other activities.
The air is so clean, the food is so good, the locals are so sweet. This is really the place that help me to relax and forget about all the city stress.
In search of peace, I know where to go now.

Room Tip: For your information, there is no A/C and TV in the rooms.

This is my 2nd trip to Khao Sok National Park, and this is my 1st time staying at Khao Sok Nature Resort. We have booked the hotel directly via email, and have chosen the Tarzan & Jane Treehouse.
Wow, it is really high up there with open-air waterfall shower concept. We really feel like Tarzan & Jane instantly. We have chosen to stay here for 2 nights as part of our getaway retreat from the busy city working life here in Patong Beach. Sleeping in the nature surroundings really brings the peace upon us... Thanks God, I really need this break.
The food in the restaurant is great too, we basically had lunch & dinner there for 2 days.
We joined the tubing tours, and the elephant trekking & canoeing, organized by the hotel. The staffs took great care of us throughout all the tours.
Thanks to everyone there, and till we meet again soon.

Room Tip: Be prepared, wifi service is pretty limited.

We stayed at Nature resort for only one day & a night, as part of a Limestone Lake Rainforest tour, thinking that just a day probably wouldn’t be enough but, for us, it turned out to be plenty. The tree house itself was very basic, with a bed, a couple of chairs and a freezing cold outdoor waterfall shower, which was quite cute (when it worked – the water pump used to supply water to the treehouses kept breaking down). The view from the treehouse veranda was beautiful, and the little flying lizards we spotted on the trees were quite cool.

The river running by the resort was very pretty, and we were visited by monkeys, due to the fig tree in the garden being in fruit, and we saw a striped tree squirrel hanging around the restaurant, but not much else (which, being birdwatchers, was a bit disappointing). The grounds of the resort were very limited and gardened, and we’d gone there to see rainforest, and there was nothing to tell us where to go to find rainforest and no-one to ask at the reception/restaurant area – we followed the road a little from the resort and came across shacks, mangy dogs and chickens, but couldn’t find any way into the forest to explore.
We went on the elephant trek, which was a short drive away, and this was worth experiencing, if you've never done anything like this before, although I didn’t like the way our mahout hit the elephant across the back of its legs with a stick when she wanted to stop for a snack on some foliage. Once the elephant spun round and let out a guttural growl at him when he tried to get her moving again, which had us worried for a few second. This left me feeling concerned that the elephants here weren’t well cared for, although they looked healthy and were given a feed both before and after the trek. The other couples we travelled with said that their mahoots seemed to have a good connection with their elephants, coaxing them along verbally rather than physically, so ours was probably just having an off day.
The restaurant area was nice, and the food was nice enough, but certainly nothing special, although making the staff understand ‘vegetarian’ was hard at first! Our nights sleep in the treehouse was fine and there was a good mosquito net, and a fan keeping the air moving to keep us cool. The cockerels started at dawn, but luckily we had an early start anyway as we were leaving for the stunning Cheow Lan lake to stay at the floating rafthouses, and we absolutely loved that part of the tour!

Room Tip: We only stayed in the one room

We stayed as part of our Limestone Lakes Tour and although I highly recommend Limestone Lakes our stay here was only average.

We stayed in the birds nest treehouse which was nice and just what we were expecting - but be warned if you want luxury this place is not for you. There will be ants and spiders in your bathroom - not a complaint as we were in the jungle and this is to be expected - but again just a warning for those who cannot cope with this type of thing.

The restaurant was interesting as it was staffed by a group of young thai girls who were very sweet and charming but unfortunatley could not speak a word of English and didn't seem to read thai when you pointed at the menu (if the menu had thaiu names written in English for you to say it might have helped) . This resulted in a game of roulette at each meal time to see if the food that turned up was actually anything resembling what you had ordered e.g I got sweet and sour shrimp when I had in fact ordered squid and my other half got fried rice with pinapple and cashew when he ordered chicken and cashew. Anyway, we are not fussy so just ate what they brought as it seemed easier than trying to explain. There was also quite a few occasions when food was delivered to the wrong tables - but as i said we are fairly laid back and found this all quite entertaining.

We also did a "jungle hike" with "carl". Although he stopped to point out spiders, iguanas, lizards etc on the way, he didn't bother on teh way back and the hike just consisted of a walk for about 3 km along a fire trail type path and then back again which we found a bit disappointing and we did much better jungle hikes when we went to the lakehouses afterwards.

The main issue with this place I think is that it is on the wrong side of the river. you can paddle through the river to Arts and from there wander down to the main resort fine, but at night we just didn't fancy crossing the river - especially as we were wearing long trousers to protect us from bugs.

Overall we enjoyed our stay there, but I think we would try someone the other side of the river or nearer to the park entrance another time.

Obviously this place isn't just a hotel - if you're looking for a good hotel and a great breakfast, you'll probably find better deals.

We stayed for two nights as part of our tour with Limestone Lake Rainforest tours.

The treehouse is lovely - we had a great view from our terrace and the bathroom was an experience in itself with the rocky floor and the tree going through it. There's a proper toilet (no paper into the toilet), bidet shower, sink and a cold water shower.

The houses are enough apart from each other, so that you can feel "alone in the jungle".

The mosquito net was great - we slept with the window shutters slightly ajar and had bats visit the house at night. There's no glass in the windows, so if the shutters are open, the wildlife can enter. We woke up in the morning to roosters and they do actually start at the break of dawn. Well, we had scheduled programme too, and there was no reason to stay up late anyway - there's not much to do in the jungle after dark.

There's apparently a separate electric pump for water, so sometimes we needed to remind them to turn it on to get the running water. Not so much fun after a day of jungle trekking... One night there were problems with electricity too, so you should bring a flashlight.

The food was included with our stay (breakfast, lunch, dinner). It was quite boring and tasteless, but in no way horrible. There were no vegetarian options on the menu, but you do get them if you ask for them (and at no extra cost). I took tofu at times or just asked them to leave out the meat.

The staff spoke only little or no English, so everything needs repeating, but everyone was friendly apart from the slight cockiness of the manager. He turned out to be alright too, after you got to know him.

The resort is a bit further away from the actual park entrance and the small village before it. You can walk there in about 10-15 minutes, if you find the way. That was a bit hard, because the staff wasn't able to give good instructions. To get there, you need to cross the river (actually on foot across the river, at least we didn't find a bridge), you then walk through another resort 'til you find the road and just follow along that. There will be some minimarts quite soon, but if you walk along and at the end of the road take a left, you'll find the actual village with shops, bars and hotels.

I loved our stay here, but if I'd go to Khao Sok again, I'd check out what other options there are.
