If you're going here before the on-the-lake guesthouse I'd highly recommend not booking to come back to the khao sok bungalows but instead find a guesthouse near the khao sok national park marina when you get back from the lake bungalows... Or take/arrange a taxi from the Marina to your next destination. Otherwise you'll backtrack for about an hour if...

Smileys is a nice place (much more nice than their horrible rafthouse). Cute wooden raised bungalows that are super cool at night, no need of even fan. (There is fan and good mosquito net, though.) For 300 baht per night this is a bargain. Super friendly owner and service. Unluckily no common kitchen, free potable water or things like that....

We spent two nights at Khao Sok Smiley Bungalow. It is located on the road into Khao Sok National Park. There is a small village there with lots of amazing small restaurants. We loved the location of our room which was surrounded by jungle. The room had two double beds, fan, toilet and shower. There was no fridge but the...

Honestly I am biased. I am a friend of the family even before smiley existed and that's why I keep coming back. Also, Khao Sok is still beautiful. If you are looking for a cozy boutique hotel with airconditioning, go for another place. If you want to experience Thai hospitality and you can handle the rainforest ( yes it's hot,...

Before I say why we have given this place such a low rating I will first say that the accommodation itself is good, we stayed in both the stone bungalows and the other cheaper ones. The stone ones were really nice and I would recommend paying the extra money for them. However we didn't have a very good experience with...

Smiley bungalows was truly was stunning! We stayed in one of the stone bungalows and it had an amazing view which could be enjoyed while swinging in the hammock on a lazy afternoon. The room itself was clean and pretty modern, which is much more than I expected for just 500 baht a night for 2 people. The owner was...

We went for the Lake Tour with Smiley and we mostly liaised with Kit, whose English was very good! He was great, very funny and extremely helpful.

This place was a great! One of the nicer places I stayed while in Thailand. Try and get a newer bungalow if you are staying here - they are clean and comfy! The family that owns this place is very nice and make you feel at home! Hammocks outside every bungalow! It was nice to stay in bungalows that were...
