Stayed here as the activity part of a family holiday. The history of the area is so rich and so tragic, a living lesson in World War II for the kids and so much more. Lovely camp, pretty luxurious tents and very good food. If you have time take one of the massages on offer - great value and so relaxing!

“Great adventure, so comfortable”
Staying in a tented camp can raise questions, but I can assure you this one is like staying at a 5 star. Strangely enough there were no insects! The food was great and the prices of the drinks were very reasonable. They have a natural pool and it is a great experience swimming there. The tents are so cool. You feel like doing a great adventure, but yet with ALL the comfort in the world. Even air conditioning.

“Probably the best place I stayed during my round trip”
I found Hintok great. the tent was awesome and the location of the camp: wow! It was great sitting on the loungechairs above the pool, overlooking the river early in the morning, enjoying the sounds and views surrounding me. The food was good, the staff friendly and helpfull. For me - arriving with a small group, but actually travelling solo - it was pure tranquility: if that is NOT what you want, this is not the place for you, because there is not much to do in the surroundings. Most guests were older and travelling in groups, so maybe I didn't really 'fit' there, but I enjoyed my stay from start to end. Great place and my personal perfect moment: the shower, which is sort of outside and you're surrounded by bamboo. The best shower experience I ever had!!!
