What we say: 3.5 stars

Yaklom Hill Lodge promises a jungle experience and, for better or worse, delivers it. If you're a nature lover looking to be well away from the crowds, this is a solid option, but bare in mind the facilities are basic and in wet season there is a bit of a perennial dampness to the place. Watch your footing too on the slippery pavers. On the upside, the staff are incredibly kind and we appreciate that the lodge meets many ecological benchmarks and employs ethnic minorities from the surrounding villages. Bathrooms are cold-water only, although there is a separate hut with two showers on the grounds where hot water is available between 18:00 and 21:00. The restaurant is no-frills but offers good Thai food with really fresh veggies. The gardens are rambling. There are directions to Yak Lom Lake, which is about a 45-minute, pleasant walk along country roads and also for two viewpoints (one for sunrise and one for sunset). All rates include transfers from town and breakfast. Note that prices sometimes fluctuate a little during the rainy season depending on demand, so if you're travelling then, ask about off-season rates.
