Khao Sok Country Resort

Worth keeping in mind

More on Khao Sok National Park

Flashpackers who prefer hotel-style lodgings join backpackers who settle into a dorm in exchange for access to a good-size swimming pool at Country Resort, worth keeping in mind at the centre of the village.

Travelfish says:

Fetching just shy of 1,000 baht, the double rooms in an orange concrete two-floor stack often fill up and it’s easy to see why. The price is right for spacious and clean interiors with comfy beds, glossy tile floors, ceiling fans in addition to air-con, large tiled bathrooms with hot water and even little desks and tables out on the mountain-view balcony. Sliding glass doors and fully enclosed concrete walls ensure make it hard for critters to reach your sleep space.

Relying on shared hot-water bathrooms, the out-of-place mixed gender air-con dorm comes with regular single beds (no bunks) and is quite popular thanks mainly to the pool, which is shared with those staying in the bungalows at neighbouring Royal Bamboo Lodge. The decent size pool is a huge bonus for those staying in both room types, but especially for the dorm divers.

Country is a small place with a subtle cowboy theme in an attached eatery by the road. Unlike many places to stay in the village, this one does not have a built-in tour outfit. Similar options without the pool or dorm include Bamboo Family Lodge, Khao Sok B&B and Green Valley.
