“1 hour on a long tail boat to get here = AWESOME”
Great location. Great local guide. Food was fantastic. We had the jacuzzi villa and loved it. Hill was no problem and I'm not the fittest

“The best place I've stayed in!”
THis was by far the greatest place I 've stayed. It's in the jungle and only accessable by boat. It is so peaceful. The food was great. The ambiance was fantastic!! The birds singing and the motor of the boats in the distance were the only sounds.

“Must visit”
My girl and I came to Thailand to visit some of our Thai friends and they brought us to The Resotel. We actually are beach lovers but this trip changed our views. It’s one of our best experiences. We accessed the resort by a long-tailed boat which took around 10 minutes. The time went fast as the lush tropical jungle on the sides of the river got our attentions. While we were walking up hills for check-in we felt like walking among jungle paradise. Lots of huge trees which seem to be there for decades. The landscape is totally impressive. Our Thai friends said the Resotel has got the best location in this area and we couldn’t agree more. The room is like a hut which truly harmonises with tropical surrounding. Lots of activities we could do here; swimming, canoeing, river jumping, mountain biking, trekking, caving, Mon traditional dancing, relaxing massage etc. It was hot and humid but our excitement overcame the weather challenge. The service is about ordinary but what to expect. We didn’t expect five-star service available in the middle of green nature anyway. Big thanks for our friends to show us such an experience. We really had a lovely time. We definitely recommend the Resotel to our friends back home.
