“The Real Thailand”
Reviewed 8 September 2013

I stayed here while using Greenleaf to see Khao Yai. The gardens are fantastic, and my room with air-con and hot shower was just fine - endless hot water felt great after a damp day trekking. The villas are beautiful, but I didn't see the interiors. For $34 (1,000 baht) for my single room, I was more than satisfied. Not a Western-style resort, though. Big frog orchestra after the rain!

Really beautiful garden, very nice Thai style architecture wooden houses.
Hotel not frequented much in high season of Jan 2013.
Biggest problem: Room and bathroom not clean, sheets had spots and 2 or 3 holes. Dust everywhere. No bugs in our room, but other guests did complain about insects in their room.
Can certainly not recommend it.

We were treating our son and his family to a few days away and opted for this resort due to neatness of the national park: also, we thought the idea of 2 rooms together, with a kitchenette would be ideal for us.
First impressions are wonderful Lanna style bungalows amid well landscaped gardens.
Our bungalow was one of the colourful painted ones and initially we liked the Z'faded chic' but ended up being disappointed that the kitchenette was no more than a washing up sink and standard, small fridge (not large enough for 4 adults and 2 children' s requirements). We had anticipated there being a cooking facility (e.g. microwave or mini hob); otherwise, why describe it as a kitchenette.
One bedroom was large enough for my son and his family; However my husband and I had to make do with a room only big enough for the rather hard mattress on the floor.
We were not impressed with the restaurant - breakfast was not great and it did not convince us to eat there in the evening.
The pool and waterfall looked impressive but we were not encouraged to use it as the base of the pool was dirty. We were advised the Jacuzzi was not working.
My son, having lived in Thailand for 3 years, felt the resort was overpriced
for what was offered.
It has obviously been great in its heyday but the overall impressions was that it was not being looked after in the way a 4/5 star place should be.
We only stayed 1 night and cancelled the remaining nights.
The guy on reception was not happy that we left but accepted that we were disappointed.
We did not think any of the other accommodation nearby was what we wanted.
We drove on to Phimai, and found very good bungalows at Riverside Resort, which also had a good restaurant. We stayed there for 4 nights.

We were going trekking with Greenleaf in the park. They recommended this place for rooms with a/c and hot water. The room was clean. People were nice. Food was okay, breakfast included, but nothing to write home about.

Overall, a bargain room located near Greenleaf Tours (highly recommend Greenleaf as a way to see the park).

We've had a great weekend at this resort! The manager is a great guy, who speaks fluent English and helped us when we could not find the place (tip:do not trust the booking.com driving directions, the hotel is 10 km further than they say) as well as giving plenty of advice as to what, where, when. Anyways, the hotel is a very well maintained place, very quiet and picturesque. It seemed pretty empty when we were there, so we had the hotel pretty much to ourselves! We loved the little cute pool with waterfall! We were shown how to turn on the pool lights and the waterfall and welcomed to use it any time of the day/night, which we did.

Very nice Chinese style gardens and it seems like the place is run by a Chinese family.

We had a cosy and clean room, however, the bed was a little too hard, even for Asia. While I had a great night sleep, my husband didn't feel so well, so if you prefer softer beds, this place can be an issue for you.

Restaurant serves good food, while the breakfasts are rather modest (there is an option of American, Thai and Chinese breakfast. Chinese noodle soup was surprisingly good!), the food they cook is nice. Prawns with lemongrass and capsicum are to die for! would go back for this dish only! Plus, the manager did everything to make our stay pleasant. We had a small plumbing leakage issue in our bathroom the first night, which was fixed in no time. Needless say, Khao Yai is a beautiful place, which is well worth visiting.

Room Tip: We liked our room at the main building

We booked this hotel via Greenleaf Guesthouse tours (highly recommended) as we wanted some AC and hot water.

The resort is set just off the major road linking Pak Chong with Khao Mai National Park and next door to Greenleaf. There are some beautiful traditional Thai style houses in the resort with their own pools set in landscaped gardens. Our room was in a block at the end of the resort's road.

We had a large room with views over the garden, a balcony and ensuite. The hotel would probably be 3*. The main issues were the bathroom needed a more thorough clean - it was dusty and had cobwebs around the ceiling. Some of the fittings were a bit tired and the shower was more of a mist. The outdoor lights shone through the curtains and the main road and AC were quite noisy so we wore earplugs and eyemasks. Also the mattress and pillows were quite hard. We got the impression the hotel was designed for a Thai rather Western tourists, as the latter seemed very happy with the Greenleaf Guesthouse.

Room Tip: Go for one of the houses rather than a room, or if choosing a room, don't choose the first one o...
