We would highly recommend this resort. Every attention to detail was made. The grounds were beautiful, the service was superb, the food was marvelous, the owners and staff so genuine and helpful.

A car from the hotel is ferrying us around today and waiting for us, so we pile back into the car and make out way to the Black Museum.
The Black Museum was started 35 years ago and belongs to the national artist Thawan Dachanee. It contains eerie things like bones, snake skins, horns and skeletons. They are housed in lots ...
Unfortunately the next day I was coerced into doing the one hour each way hike through the forest to the waterfall. We set off with a couple of cokes for blood sugar and made our way across a very shaky bridge to the other side of the river which ran past our cabin.
The walk seemed ok at first but very quickly turned steep and wound deeper into the jungle. Not really one for strenuous activity, I started to get ...
