According to Nest’s website, “Nest 2 is slowly developing an identity and clientele of its own...”, though we can’t help thinking it would be speeded up if they let their second resort, which they are at pains to point out is not an overflow for their main resort, have their own business cards, contact details and even website.

Anyway ,Nest 2 is located a short distance back down the same road towards the caves, and if anything has a better location than the original, with a huge garden set at the foot of dramatic limestone cliffs.

Chalets are scattered – we mean really scattered since we’ve rarely seen a resort with so much space between chalets -- around this lush and well-maintained garden. They are rather unimaginatively designed though, being rectangular blocks nicely finished in faux bamboo (well, real woven bamboo sheets, but glued to concrete walls), but with all that space it’s a shame their tiny verandas aren’t a bit more spacious. Interiors are better, with good beds, hot ensuite showers and, unlike Nest 1, all these chalets are air-con -- although you rarely need it in these parts.

The restaurant, as you’d expect for Nest, is very good, though this time it concentrates on Thai and North Thai cuisine.

Nest 2 also manages to have 11 different price tranches throughout the year. Nothing like making life simple is there? Breakfast is not included.
