Khao Sok Guest Commentss and Adventures

“This is the paradise in Khao Sok!”

We stayed in a tree house. It’s a very beautiful with gardens and wildlife. Staffs here are very helpful and friendly. Tours also were amazing. We took river tubing and lake trip, it’s a refreshment to us before headed back to reality in a city life again.

“Lovely sweet resort”

We arrived here in the monsoon season so there was some rain but the facility was nice and the staff was very friendly. We went on joungle treking and the local guide in the national park had much knowledge of the wildlife.

Stayed July 2013, traveled with family

“Please read to understand”

We arrived here 3 days ago, and as we were checking in, before being shown around or our room or anything “you probably wont be able to do the night on river as low season and not a lot of staff” , we had booked and paid for this trip months ago and the night on the river was the main reason for this destination, the fact that this was told to us within minutes of arrival knew they had been waiting to tell us this. Why this couldn’t of been communicated weeks ago or even days means to me that it was important to get us there before giving us this news. We flew from Chaing Mai to Phuket at a cost of 10,000 baht then paid them 2000 more for the transfer to be given this news so as you can understand im not very happy.

The only saving grace for the place was we decided to get some sleep and got up early the following day and had breakfast then spoke to the manager to confirm we only came to do the trip and would be leaving that day, she was fine about it and said she would refund via paypal the money for the nights we had not used after we had left, to her credit this has happened.

However due to nobody doing the decent thing and letting us know in advance, we are now about 20,000 baht and 2 days of our honeymoon lighter

Oh and the room leaked in 3 places due to the rain

Thanks

“Great activities, great place to stay”

I spent 3 nights at the Paradise resort with my 16 year olds daughter, after travelling through Thailand, It was her favourite place we visited – the staff and guides were really friendly and helpful, the surroundings were beautiful and the activities were just right. We had a deluxe tree house, and the Gibbon Call package.

The tree house bedroom, bathroom and balcony were beautifully decorated and maintained, we visited in the rainy season and were able to relax in style when it did rain. We were lucky to have glorious sunshine for our day trip to the lake (including an exhilarating trek up into the cave, wading through the river) and our tubing trip – more fun than any other water activity I have tried! The local guides were excellent, they knew lots abut the local area, fauna and flora, and were also funny and very reassuring . The food was great, and we enjoyed the Thai cooking lesson.

We also enjoyed eating the rambutin fruit straight off the trees in the garden. A lovely place to stay.

“Beautiful and quiet location in Khao Sok!”

This resort is down a little from the main road in Khao Sok, which makes it feel more intimate, natural, and romantic than some of the others in the area. We stayed for 3 nights and did the Gibbon’s Call Package. We specifically recommend tubing, the lake full day visit, and the cooking class. We were worried the package would…

“Home from home”

Despite my title, this place is nothing like my house in London, but the staff really do make you feel welcome here. You can see by the fact that Eric responds to every review on here that he takes it seriously and does what he can to make sure your stay is a good one, and the same goes for the others. 

The rooms are mostly tree house huts, and they’re actually very comfortable. Another room is designed to look like it’s hollowed out of a tree, and we stayed in this one for a couple of nights. Unlike the other rooms it had air conditioning, and to be honest, the others didn’t need it. It also suffered from damp and leaks, which the others didn’t. 

Eric was putting the finishing touches to a new bungalow when we were there and it looked really nice. 
The food is quite a limited selection, but most of the Thai favourites are there and they’re lovely. I really recommend the cookery class too, but bear in mind you make a lot of food, so don’t pig out at breakfast like we did. 

One of the best things about this place is the fact that they will organise activities for you and they’re worth what is charged for them. The lake trip is a must and you should stay overnight on the lake too.
We probably picked a bad time to visit as it chucked it down constantly, but it was still a great few days.
Thanks Eric, for being such a good host, and if we’re ever passing Khao Sok, we’ll come and stay again :-)

“Fantastic staff”

We stayed here for 2 nights and could not have been made to feel more welcome. The reception staff were friendly and helpful, and the food was good. The rooms are very basic but clean and comfortable. The bathroom is really cool with the tree growing through the floor. It’s a great base to explore the national park from.

“great place! fantastic staff!”

After travelling for almost 3 weeks in thailand we stayed at the paradise resort and had one of the best time . THX to the fantastic staff, always friendly and profesional

we booked the package (jungle taster 2nights with all food included from the resort ) directly with them via the web site.

Our tree hut was very confortable with nice bathroom, we had one of the best sleep so far in thailand
organisation was top from begining to the end. the diferent guide provided for the tour were very profetional, always taking care that you can have the best experience.

the price can look like a bit more than average but it is for our point of view really worth the money

“Highly recommended”

Together with my husband and our 3 youngsters we spent t totally 5 days in the Khao Sok National Park at the Paradise Resort with accommodation in Treetop cabins + one overnight stay in a raft house at the lake. Our trip was from 2-6. July 2012 and we had in advance purchased a Discovery package directly through the Paradise Resort incl. all meals and tours. 

After our return to Denmark we must say that during our 3 week travel in Thailand (which also included a 5 star River hotel in Bangkok, a 3 star resort at Koh Mook + a luxury villa in Krabi) the Paradise Resort in Khao Sok brought us not only best value for money – the moments we experienced at this Resort and in the National Park has become valuable memories, because here surrounded by the green forest and the many sounds of insects and animals we felt so relaxed – close to reborn. What an experience. 

As to the Paradise Resort: What you see from the photos from the Paradise Resort website is also what you get! Further to this the Paradise Resort is a very nice and comfortable place to stay , because the cabins are cosy and the resort is quietly located. The sounds of the many insects and animals are intense and so is the smell of green nature. The meals prepared to us every day were delicious and the staff and family were very friendly – they really made you feel good. At the resort we also received a “Thai cooking class” taught by the very well English speaking cook Mrs. Botan. The resort is located only 5 minutes walk away from the park entrance and the small village, which offers a couple of other restaurants, resorts and a few shops.

We highly recommend everybody planning a trip to Southern Thailand to spend at least a couple of days in the Khao Sok Rainforest – even though it may rain. Purchase a guided tour package – you will not regret it. We also highly recommend the Paradise Resort. You will not regret that either.
