“What a great surprise!”
Reviewed May 25, 2014

Jungle Club
A visit to the Jungle Club at the conclusion of a sightseeing tour with Samui Explorer, proved to be one of the highlights of our tour. It was with a little trepidation that we sat in the back of Jack’s 4 wheel drive which clambered up the never-ending steeply rising gradient along a rough track with no idea of what to expect. What a wonderful surprise, and relief, to achieve the summit and emerge through the trees onto some level ground and experience the vista through the trees. The spectacular views from this idyllic oasis were breathtaking! The host was a welcoming individual and it took no time to explore the views and order refreshments. The freshly made sandwiches which were delicious, and reasonably priced, and our beers were more than welcome. The Jungle Club appeared to be well patronised, although it was a little surprising seeing how isolated and somewhat difficult it is to reach. No doubt, everyone else thought the journey worth the effort. A visit to the Jungle Club is a must!

“Top Of The World (Koh Samui)”
Reviewed May 25, 2014

It begins with the trip to The Jungle Club in the 4WD. Ladies inside, Gents in the back. Unreal, and then you arrive, and there are the VIEWS. PLUS, THE BEST Staff, Not Intrusive but always there. Great food, endless choice of drinks and Crepes Suzette for dessert. 3 Photos are not enough, if you go to Samui, DON'T miss out on The Jungle Club!!

“Great views, even better food”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

A lot has been said about the stunning views at the Jungle Club. But more delicious was the food. Because we arrived in the slow season (April) the manager kindly let us use the awesome infinity pool for a very small fee, which is exclusive to hotel guests only. And so we are very grateful.

“A Wonderful Samui Semi-Secret”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

I think the word is starting to get out about how breath taking the views from The Jungle Club are and for now you can still enjoy them without being over run, I'm guessing that may change in the future.

We went simply for a couple lazy afternoon cocktails as the sun disappeared behind the hill and the weather cooled just a little.

It's difficult to add anything truly constructive and original that hasn't already been said about TJC. The views are simply breath taming, the sala and bean bag cushions give such a wonderful laid back feeling and surprisingly the cocktails are reasonably priced, normally you expect a premium price for anything with a stunning view but hats off to TJC so not gouging.
We ordered a couple of dishes that weren't on the menu, a squid and a prawn dish, both were nice and again reasonably priced.

The hill climb up is an adventure as has been mentioned before, our little hired Jeep did make it up, most of the way in 1st gear but anything with even little more power wouldn't have an issue. Coming down was much easier.

Go now while you can, I'm guessing if it becomes too popular it may just one need to become a resort guest only location, which only seems fair.

“Most Amazing View at night”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

We went there for a birthday party only to find out the venue had been changed but we hadn't been informed until after we got there. The place was so nice we decided to stay and eat there. Food was lovely, drinks good and a view to die for. Staff were very friendly and we would definitely go back and would recommend to go even for a drink and see the view.
