I visited Khao Sok at Easter and stayed four nights and highly recommend the Paradise Resort. The facilities were pleasant, clean and functional and all the staff were very friendly and really helpful.
I went to Khao Sok to relax and to see some Nature as an antidote to the urban razzamataz of Phuket. I went on the Resort’s day trip to Cheow Lan Lake which was led by Nopporn, a qualified Thai guide who is extremely knowledgeable about the local wildlife - recognises all the birds by their calls, as well as knowing a lot about plants, insects, reptiles and mammals. I later went for a guided walk in the National Park for half a day with Nopporn; in fact we hardly walked any distance because of the number of interesting animals (ranging from lantern bugs to monkeys) that we came across.
As an example of helpfulness, the resort staff also organised someone to show me some particular plants that occur locally - not just the standard day tours.
The food at the resort was good and I had some good meals in the local restaurants too. All in all, my stay in Khao Sok was very pleasant and successful, and the staff at the resort helped to make it that way.
