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. Yet it felt so much like old Thailand all around you - the gentle fog around the hills and mountains, the gently flowing Maekok River at your door, the stillness and silence of small town Thaton, yet the call from the Wats in the hills made the experience almost otherworldly and magical.

... Thai food all together as a welcoming dinner party around a fire.
The second day was the biggest out of all of the days of volunteering. I got to have a taste of all the volunteer jobs such as feeding the elephants, doing simple DNA testings, engaging with the calves and their mothers and documenting elephant behaviours. It was really interesting. The best activity I did would have to be riding ...
... and the more crazy overtakes and tight manouvers the better! they're fun, I'm never really scared on a tuk-tuk, you don't ever hear about them crashing either, maybe they do I don't know? you definitely wouldn't want to be hit by something in one though, I think the most fun I had in one was last time in Bangkok in 2008 when we had a guy pull off full scale wheelies at every green light! the front end actually lifts right in the air lol, great fun! I reckon I'd like to ...
... the office and a living room, with a TV and desk with Gary’s laptop. In a previous life, Gary was a furniture salesman and an interior contractor, and he has designed the whole place with extreme care and precision. The two main areas of the house are at right angles to one another, and between them is the land’s focal point – a simple but bright, blue swimming pool and a sala, a Thai building often used for eating in – simply a ...
