“ideal place to stay in khao sok..”
Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

there are only 5 bungalows in total; all of which are nicely spaced and high off the ground which allow the relaxing noises of the jungle to be heard.. warm shower, mozzy net and a balcony are featured. the owner (mr. bao) is very friendly and very helpful. he offers a variety of well priced tours and a simple but tasty selection of food.. we'd definately stay here again!

Cheap, basic accommodation in Khao Sok National Park. But the real gem here is Mr. Bao, the owner. Top guy - he will make you feel at home and suggest/organise all types of excursions to make your stay enjoyable. We learned more about Thailand from chatting to this man than we did from reading the guidebook. Fully recommend for a true jungle experience.

I stayed four nights at Khao Sok Valley Lodge with my two teenage daughters. The lodge is outside the national park, but close to restaurants, shops and the ATM. Accomodation is very basic, but the prices are low and the food is excellent. The proprietor Mr. Bao is extremely helpful and always in a good mood. We had four wonderfull days inspite of the weather.

I've been guided to the Khao Sok Valley Lodge by the german "Loose" guidebook, where the valley lodge was highlighted. And i haven't been disappointed: The bungalows from the valley Lodge are located at a calm place inbetween trees and beautiful green. The simple stilt-bungalow, one of five, was equipped with a comfortable bed with thick mattress, vent, bathroom with toilet and hot showers and a large terrace for relaxing (also power points were available and free WiFi in the restaurant). While the choice of meals in the small but cosy restaurant wasn't that big, the food was delicious. Also the resort houses a lot of squirels and on and off monkeys visit the close surrounding, mainly makakes, but sometimes also langures. Also the largest toad i've ever seen visited us here, amongst other amphibes and reptilians (like the large black snake i saw escaping into a bush or a beautiful chameleon).

But although the bungalow and restaurant were very nice, they had been topped by an incredible hospitality and kindliness. Bao, who humorous owner who speaks very good english, and his employees, Men and Sai, took really a lot of care to ensure that i never was bored in between my hikes and little trips. So i also have been taken to very nice bathing places in the Sok (the local river) or to a waterfall, to a caoutchouc plantation where i could proof myself as caotchouc-farmer, to see some working-elephants while they were bathing and transporting trees or to the incredible relaxing tubing where you float on a tire on the Sok below green trees and high cliffs.

A big thank you to the valley lodge staff and a recommendation to anyone looking for a low priced accommodation at Khao Sok.

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.
