“Nice little place with excellent hosts”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2012

This is a good little resort in Khao Sok with hosts who do go out of their way to make sure you have a good time. They booked all our activities and transport on to Koh Surat Thani (and when we were late on the day we were leaving even got the minubus to come back for us!). The only things stopping me giving it a 5 were that the swimming pool was not in use and we weren't aware of this, it was one of the reasons for booking and I would've loved a dip after getting back from our lake trip. Also there were alot of places to stay in Khao Sok and I got the impression this was alot more expensive. We did the tubing down the river, overnight lake tour and canoeing trip - all recommended and all booked with Nee at the resort. Great detour from the beached and islands and a nice place to stay. Nice clean rooms and lovely gardens.

We had a wonderful stay with Nee and Sisco although it rained pretty much all the time! But Nee made sure we were ok with umbrellas and ponchos and Sisco advised us what activities were best to so in the rain.
Nee's breakfasts are lovely and excellent food can be had down the road for lunch or dinner at Pawn, Thai Herb and Morning Mist.
We enjoyed the elephant trek and lake trip but missed out on the tubing and trekking due to the rain which we would have loved to do.
It was easy to locate Las Orquideas in Khao Sok which is literally resorts either side of a road leading to the National Park. We took the sleeper train from Bangkok and then bus to Khao Sok (just out of the front of the railway station in Surat Thani to the left is an inconspicuous bus stop - you can buy a ticket from the man sat at a small table on the side - the bus's final destination is Phuket). Once dropped off in Khao Sok we walk for approx 5 mins to the resort.
The rooms were beautiful and hot shower, amazing! We loved our stay here!

Room Tip: No Fitness centre or Spa. It is a steep walk up to the bungalows.

Although our trip is to Thailand is still a few months away, It is clear to us already that the owners of Las Orquideas Resort put the needs of their guests first. They have quickly replied in a clear way to each of our questions in emails and have graciously assisted us in several changes to our original reservation. Thanks for the exceptional costumer service in reservations and planning Las Orquideas Resort.

I stayed here as a solo traveller after reading favourable reviews on the sight - I was not dissapointed! The owner (Cee?) greeted me at the door with her two adorable dogs and she knew my name from my reservation which made the greeting personal. I was walked UP quite a distance to my own lodge and I couldn't believe how big it was - I did notice the reflective windows on backwards so I couldn't see outside unless the door was open. What a beautiful site! I'd recommend it to families and couples but as a solo traveller it was quite lonely and an experience I would rather have shared with someone else! A beautiful place - really worth a high rating for service alone!

We were staying here for 3 nights. We had already seen on this site that the couple who run this place is so nice. And Yes, the are. It was like we were in there home. It is a small resort with only 6 houses. We wanted to visit Khao sok, because of its nature. And it is beautifull. The only bad thing was that it was raining for 3 days with sometimes a dry period. Nee and Nicholas are building a new resort only 5minutes away from Las Orquideas and there is a swimming pool. So they told us if we wanted to swim we could asked them and nicholas would bring us there. It was so nice. We stayed there for 1 hour before it was starting to rain again. So if you want to visit Khao Sok stay in Las Orquideas.

We arrived at Las Orquideas after a long trip from Koh Pangang. Cisco & Nee stood at the gate to welcome us. After saying "Hi" to a little green snake, Nee showed us our family-bungalow, an airconditioned haven! Two levels of tastefully decorated bliss. Good shower, fridge & coffee/tea available in the bungalow.

In the morning we could see the wonderful jungle-garden. Being the rainseason, we could also marvel at a real tropical rainstorm from our covered veranda. An event for ears, eyes and nose! This while eating a very nice birthday-cake which Cisco had arranged for our son (really nice gesture!).

Location: The resort is very well situated on the road between the main Surat Thani to Phang Nga road and the National Park entrance. Opposite the entrance is a little shop where you can buy some essentials. Bars & restaurants are also in easy walking distance.
Las Orquideas does not serve dinner.

Breakfast is a treat! Nee's banana-pancakes are the best!!! Tours to the Park itself can easily be arranged by Cisco & Nee. Stay here when you want to visit Khao Sok!!!

We chose the area to stay in because it looked so amazing in the literature, likewise the hotel as it got great reviews. In the end we cut our week long stay back by four days, not because of the hotel, but because we just got wet and miserable,and the leeches in the National Park just compounded it. Serves us right, it's the rainy season. I wouldn't advise booking and paying to stay here for more than a couple of days to try it out. We booked for a week and were still charged 50% of the unused days.
Good things:
Location great, although the climb to the chalets is steep. Francisco and Nee are great hosts and we were driven round the small resort to find restaurants and mini-marts, and even bike rental. Our chalet was comfy and clean, right in the jungle it felt. Breakfast was tasty. Pawns restaurant highly recommended.
Other things to consider:
The pool was out of action. Your clothes just will not dry if they get wet, even when left out on the terrace. Maybe get them laundered. Why are the patio doors the wrong way around? The reflective surface is on the inside, so I could see myself naked quite happily in the reflection, but I couldn't see the beautiful forest in the morning. Anyone watching from outside could, conversely see me naked. Most hotels have their quirks and this is one.
