Khao Sok Valley Lodge
Reviewed September 17, 2011

We had a good time and really great jungle tour with Bao! The jungle hats are simple and clean. The jungle tours are guided by Boa self. Prices are very fair and service is with love. Everything you need is availible. Even our laundry was washed overnight. Boa organised this fast service. f

If you wanna go back to basic, this is the place. If you wanna a decent bathroom, no spiders or ants in your room then this is not the place for you. Mr, Bao is fantastic guy who can learn you a lot about the jungle. He and his family are real nice people, who really worth te stay at their home. Also a trip to the lake is great, just small groups. And eat he arrange for you seems to be more than another groups.

We had a fantastic stay with Bao and Oy who run this place. We phoned to book and our jungle hut was ready when we arrived. All the little huts are raised up to tree house level and were very good value for money.

There's a lot more to do in Khao Sok than you think. As the national park is so near we spend a couple of days just exploring the park and water falls - make sure you go early in the morning - so much more to see - especially birds. Next we took Bao's recommendation of the famous Lake tour which starts next to an absolutely huge dam with beautiful views. We had a wonderful guide and Bao came along too, they took us for over an hour on a boat over the stunning lake. We even saw some gibbons up high in the trees, which I never thought' I'd see. I think I nearly using up all the space in my camera just on that part of the trip! Then we had lunch in a floating restaurant and had a jungle walk/climb in a beautiful cave. We saw so many interesting things in the jungle and BIG insects in the cave... lots of bats of course.

We also decided to extend our stay to take a canoe down the local river, with the guide doing all the work of course! We went really early about 7am and saw several king fishers, and snakes hiding in the trees. The river passes so many beautiful sights, limestone cliffs and it's so peaceful - we never saw another boat. Just a few local Thais playing in the water. The next day we found out that Bao also had some big tyre inner tubes which took down the river that passes just behind the bungalows - where we stayed. That was so much fun and the water was perfect.

We decided to eat in most nights, luckily they are really good cooks and it's so reasonable. If you go to Khao Sok don't miss out Valley Lodge - we're already planning to go back next year.

Room Tip: Don't miss the Lake Tour

Mr. Bao is the very friendly owner of 5 tree huts in Khao Sok and a Trekking Tour Guide.

We stay for one night in a tree hut and booked a "2 days, 1 night Trekking Tour" with Bao as our Guide.

The huts a rustic and simple with private bathrooms located in the beautiful green nature. The food, especially the Thai Curry, is very good!

Mr. Bao and his family are very helpful and open-minded. They live in harmony with the nature, so we felt very well there! He tells us many interesting things on our trekking tour and drove us to the minibus and was there with us waiting for so long until the bus came (not self-evident). We drink some beer together and had a funny trip with perfect service!

Thank you from Germany to Mr. Bao and his family!

Arriving at Khao Sok you see a lot of new(read concrete) resortstyle sleeping options and that's fine if that is what you like. But if you're looking for a nice, quiet place with only five wooden treehuts amongst a beautiful junglegarden, come to the valley lodge and enjoy peace and tranquility. We felt really at home with mr. Bao and his wife Oi and daughter Jasmine. Mr Bao's father is a national park ranger and taught all that he knows about the area to his son, so the jungletrekking was very special due to all the background information mr Bao gave us. All that is left for us is to tell you that if you want to experience the fenomenal ancient rainforest of Khao Sok the right way, stay with Bao and Oi.
