Smileys was absolutely incredible!! They made our group feel at home from the very beginning, and Phaiwan was very accommodating whenever we needed anything. We were their first guests after covid, and we loved every minute! We did several boat rides, jungle trekking, and ate some of the best food I’ve had in Thailand. We could have spent our entire vacation on the floating bungalows and never gotten bored. Thank you so much phaiwan and kit!!!
I've stayed in one of their brand new bungalow, very surprised by the confort ! Aircon, flash toilets and bathrooms, everything very clean, all this for 500 Bahts, the best value for money of all my trip in Thailand I reckon. Plus staff are amazing, even though they have massive renovation in the reception area at the moment (finished now ? It was feb 2020).
We were greeted by a friendly owner who pleasantly surprised us with an unexpected upgrade from wooden fan bungalow to a brand new stone bungalow with AC, it was well needed after our 10 minute walk from the van station. The bungalow was clean and tidy, we had fresh bedsheets and soft towels. The bungalows are located about 500 meters from the main park entrance. I strongly recommend taking Smiley Bungalow Cheow Lake Tour which was 2500 Baht per person (plus park fee 300 Baht) it was well organised and food was plentiful. We really enjoyed our stay with Smiley and recommend this place to other travellers.
The jungle bungalows were great and are exactly what you pay for. Nothing special (the bathroom is not luxurious), but for the price, it's nice. The location was great - within walking distance of lots of restaurants; however, the sign is hard to see from the road. We drove into the city and the map isn't helpful, so it was difficult for us to find. Once we found it though, everyone was very nice and helpful, and the stay was good.
I stayed here for a night before I took the smiley tour to Khao sok. My stay was divine!!!! Amazing scenery... cozy bungalows... shower with nice warm water and many towels provided. The fan was great and much needed :) The bungalow area was under construction so I even got a discount price. The construction did not make any difference in my stay. It was still 5/5 stars. I loved the lush green trees nearby, the balcony and the hammock! My stay was just perfect. The owner who helped with check in was accommodating, and very helpful with questions about the national park! That made my stay even better!
