Cliff and River Jungle Resort,
Khao Sok National Park
Thailand, West Coast and Islands
Info : Cliff and River Jungle Resort
Set amidst the striking jagged peaks of Khao Sok National Park, Cliff and River Jungle Resort is a fantastic base for exploring the Thai jungle.
Whether shrouded in mist or backed by brilliant blue sky, it is undeniable that the surrounding natural views are breath-taking from every part of this resort. Thai-style stilted houses are scattered across the resort and are all open and airy with simple yet comfortable furnishings. All are en-suite with air conditioning and mosquito nets, and the larger rooms can sleep up to six people making it a great option for families and friends travelling together. There is a small spa and a swimming pool, as well as plenty of activities that are easy to arrange including trekking, elephant rides and boat trips.
The resort is in a quiet spot that is removed from the other Khao Sok hotels meaning that you will have a peaceful stay with little noise, and those wanting to eat out elsewhere can arrange transport with the hotel. Overall quite a rustic experience, but a lovely secluded spot to relax and get back to nature in one of Thailand’s most spectacular national parks
Deluxe - This is our first really 'upmarket' category. It might be a beautiful tiny hotel with very limited facilities or a 5* resort hotel with all the trimmings; but any hotel in this category will be a well-run establishment with very comfortable rooms, a strong service ethos and excellent food.
I started doing a search on the net for specialists and came across Experience Travel Group. I liked a lot what I saw on their website so started an online dialogue with one of their operators. She quickly realised what we are looking for and got one of her colleges who was a specialist in this area. A chap called David Gookey called me back to chat about what we wanted. We gave David a brief for our budget and the type of things that we wanted to do and he did the rest. All I can say is he put together the perfect holiday, sorted out the best tours and some incredible hotels. All guides, flights, transport and transfers taken care of. If you're reading this David thank you once again.
