    Hello, I don't recall seeing any mosquitos at Kumbuk! The boat house was still being built when we stayed so I can't comment on that. Book the treehouse or the lorry if you are worried :)

    Yes, there are some activities in the forest including trekking, mud bath or ride in the fisherman's raft. Very often guest get to see lots of elephant within just a few minutes of the resort.
