Booked large family cabin by pond- sleeps upto 6 comfortably with elegant Thai furnishings.Very clean with lots of mod-cons. Hotel gardens are beautifully designed, (great for anyone who likes plants) with space between bungalows & didn´t ever feel "cramped" although all cabins where being used. You feel as if you are literally in the jungle but with a safe, serene atmosphere & great accomodation.
Staff & owners are attentive & friendly without being overbearing. Food is excellent with a good mixture of Thai & Western food - not the cheapest food but excellent. If you like Thai food, definetly worth trying chefs specials, these are incredible! Also there is a great choice of breakfast options-will suit everyone. Restaurant is set on veranda overseeing river (remember mosquito spray)- perfect after a busy day sightseeing or with the elephants at Elephant World. Felt a million miles away when we sat down by the river & just watched it flow by....
Easy drive from town (own car)-approx. 15 mins though GPS was handy. Once you get to hotel you won´t want to leave so eat in & then borrow a movie. I would recommend to anyone, couples or families as it has a wonderful relaxing atmosphere. All of family wanted to stay on- Unfortunately no space but will definetly return soon to finish tourism and just enjoy the resort itself.
