If you really like nature
Located five kilometres outside of town off Route 323, this resort/adventure park is set over a huge terrain of lush hillside between Lake Vajiralongkorn and a smaller lake.
The many varieties of accommodation include camping tents, rustic stilted cabins, floating rafthouses, treehouses, family cabins that sleep up to eight, and comfortable lakeside villas. All but the villas are fan-cooled and rustic, although many come with TVs and fridges. Prices vary widely, even within each of the seven accommodation categories, so your best bet is to look on the resort’s website and see what looks good. We checked out the lakeside villas and found them spacious, clean and inviting, with wide verandas that offer great views of the small lake. The Nature Club offers several activities, including ATV, mountain biking, swimming, massage, kayaking, fishing, a very long zip-line and tours to area national parks. They have a restaurant on-site and some of the room rates include breakfast while others do not. Free pick-up is available at the Sangkhlaburi bus station for all guests. This is a good option for those who like staying active and want to really get back to nature, but keep in mind that once you’re here, there’s nothing else around but the resort itself.
