Wishing Tree Resort,
Thailand, North and East
Info : Wishing Tree Resort
The Wishing Tree Resort is a charming riverside hotel in Isan Province. Located a 20 minute drive from the town of Khon Kaen, the Wishing Tree offers a chance to really escape from it all and enjoy the charms of life in rural Thailand. Surrounded by rice fields and bordering the Chi River, this is a place close to nature and the unique way of life in this part of the country.
A total of 48 spacious rooms and villas are designed in contemporary Thai fashion and offer comfort and relaxation amidst the manicured gardens. All rooms have outdoor terraces or balconies and overlook the river and surrounding countryside.
There is a main restaurant that serves Thai, Isan and a small western menu throughout the day. General facilities at the resort are decent too, with a pool, spa, yoga and a modern fitness centre. Excursions can be arranged in the local area to sites and villages of interest, including temples and ruins. Khon Kaen town, 15 kilometres away, is also lively and well worth a visit.
The Wishing Tree is a real boutique hotel celebrating the charms of rural Thailand. The atmosphere is laid back throughout and the property will appeal to couples and families alike who are seeking something a little more unusual in their Thailand trip. Khon Khaen is also located on the main national rail network, serviced by both day and overnight services between Bangkok and Nong Khai/Vientiane.
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.

We are normally very independant travellers, but for various reasons decided in this instance to use Experience Travel Group, and what a good idea that turned out to be!
