Took a bit of a chance on this one, but were pleasantly surprised.
The resort has a large entrance and it's clear that the main focus is the restaurant: an interesting foresty-themed place that can cater to very large numbers. Good selection of seafood (and an international menu), which is relatively pricey.
The resort itself has very well-maintained gardens and water features around. Rooms are a very good size; again, very clean, and can easily accommodate a small family. The only small quibble here is that because they have made it very 'wooden', the thick doors aren't very easy for small ones and can make the rooms very dark. They do, however, overlook the lake: very relaxing and peaceful.
A fairly new feature is the pool (pictured) which is fun to explore. Do heed some caution here though, as well-known, local (lack of) attention to safety means that some care is needed climbing the rocks and the slides are faster than they look! Our confident 7-yr-old swimmer really enjoyed it though. Guests can also take one of the swan pedalos out on the lake too (which is right next to the pool area).
The resort is clearly catering more to a Thai market: a lack of English and a breakfast that is not as varied as many resorts (fine for basic cereals, toast, omelets). All-in-all though, this is a tranquil resort that provides a good escape from Bangkok.More
