I'm just coming towards the end of a one week stay here. It's been like living in the Garden of Eden for a week. Very relaxing and highly recommended as a place to take a real break. The resort is a really lovely place. Tastefully crafted, it's set in a large caldera-like space with dense tropical forest towering above and below - a beautiful garden of flame trees, advocado trees, herb gardens and flowers. The care and effort that goes into the upkeep is impressive. The staff are a delight and the food is decent, with two restaurants. The accommodation covers a range but even the basic is quite decent. The deluxe huts are really quite luxurious. Prices are very reasonable indeed for what you get (inc. an all you can eat breakfast thrown in). Apparently this was the first resort of its kind to be built outside of Chiang Mai. Some upgrading and renovation going on right now, but not too disruptive. Lots of attractions close by. And taxis up and down the road only cost 20 baht per trip. The only complaint I have is the insects - there are a lot of the b****rs (including mozzies). But this simply is par for the course in a tropical forest area like this. It's no worse than anywhere else of a similar ilk. The trick is not to let them get to you - just cover up at night and use repellent. Beyond that - just accept a few bites! Do seriously consider staying here - I strongly doubt you'll regret it.
