BEST HOTELS IN KHAO SOK
If you are planning a visit to Khao Sok, in most cases you stay a few days in a hostel, hotel or resort. This because there are so many things to do and the surroundings are so beautiful that a day is really not enough! Most people stay two or three days and combine the park with a visit to Cheow Lan Lake.
It is important to know that the hotels in Khao Sok are not located in the Khao Sok National park itself, as this is not allowed. Fortunately but otherwise there was probably nothing left of the beautiful primeval forest. In addition, the surroundings of the Khao Sok National Park are also very beautiful with the dramatic rock formations in the background! Most of the accommodations are located in or near the village of Khao Sok and the village is within walking distance of the entrance to the Khao Sok National Park. There are also a number of accommodations that are further away from the village, these often have a special location or accommodation.

BEST HOTELS IN KHAO SOK - MIDDLE CLASS
A personal favorite and one of the best middle class resorts in Khao Sok! The Khao Sok Morning Mist Resort is located in the middle of Khao Sok village. The family and crew that run the resort are incredibly nice and hospitable! The reception and the Misty restaurant are a few meters from the main street and the bungalows are set in a peaceful tropical garden with beautiful flowers and fruit trees. If you get up early you will understand why the resort is called Morning Mist. Almost every morning there is a haze of fog around the surrounding limestone rocks in the distance! Morning Mist is a very popular resort and certainly quickly booked up in high season, so don’t hesitate and book in advance if you really want to sleep here. In most cases you can also cancel free of charge up to a few days before departure.

The Khao Sok Cabana Resort is a five minute walk from the center of Khao Sok village. The resort has clean basic rooms with soft beds and a good shower. The more expensive rooms starting from € 36,- have air conditioning. The staff is very friendly and it is said that they have the tastiest American-style pancakes in all of Khao Sok! A nice aspect of this resort is that most bungalows are accessible via an elevated walkway which winds through the park like a snake. A nice resort to spend the night near the Khao Sok National Park!
We personally find Our Jungle House one of the very best hotels in Khao Sok!
If you want to sleep in the middle of the jungle in an ecological way then you have to go to Our Jungle House! This place has been around for at least 20 years and here you can sleep in a treehouse and/or along the Sok River. Our Jungle House is not located on the main street of Khao Sok but a bit more hidden in the jungle and a fifteen minute walk from the village. That is what makes this location so unique, you really have the feeling that you are in the middle of the jungle! The bungalows and treehouses do not have a fridge and air-conditioning but do have a fan, water dispenser and shower with hot water. Our Jungle House has many different types of bungalows and tree houses to choose from, with names such as Happy Nest, Romance and Hideway!

Since 2017 our friends from Our Jungle House also opened Our Jungle Camp – Eco Resort. A beautiful location, 900 meters from Khao Sok city center and among all the greenery of Khao Sok. And all that completely ecologically responsible! The manager, a friendly German, is very concerned with the area, nature and people of Khao Sok. You really can feel that when you are a guest here. Beautiful plants and flowers grow everywhere. Fruits, vegetables and herbs are grown on site and used in the resort’s kitchen. There are 24 accommodations on the campsite, the cheapest, the Bamboo Hut, is basic with a mesmerizing view over the field.

The Khao Sok Nature Resort is a little further away from the city center of Khao Sok Village (2.2 km). And here you also can sleep in a well-kept tree house! The resort is run by a very friendly family who can cook wonderfully! That makes the choice of eating in the village for which you have to walk half an hour, or eating in the resort a lot easier! There is also plenty to do, there is a nice recreational area with a view on the Sok River. When we were there the monkeys swayed in the trees. In addition to watching monkeys, you can also play pool or watch TV in the recreational area. There are also regular activities for children on the large and beautiful grounds. And towards the evening, many times the BBQ is turned on to eat outside together in the garden. For families, the large tree houses are highly recommended, it has 2 balconies and two double beds.
