Stayed at the raft houses - basic does not describe the accommodation - read instead dilapidated, and no sign that much needed maintenance is likely to be carried out. Add to that, the fact that sullen and lazy staff who would rather smoke "non-branded" cigarettes and sleep all day than communicate with or provide guests activities promised or details about...

We booked the Rainforest Experience with two nights at the Tree Tops lodge in Khao Sok and one night in a raft house on Cheow Lan lake. The scenery is spectacular and probably the most beautiful place I've ever been in my life, however this is not a review of the lake / jungle it is a review of Tree...

My sister had recommended this after she had visited a couple of years ago. She'd spoken very highly of it and I can see why she found it so memorable. We opted for the "tropical taster" option which consisted of 3 days / 2 nights - one night in the tree house and one in the raft house. The tree...

I'm sorry to say, our experience in Treetops did not live up to our expectations. The staff is friendly and our night at the rafthouses was great. The transfer from Donsak Pier and to Surat thani airport were on time and very good. The meals were generally of good quality. But these are the only positive things I can say....

We are sorry to hear you had a bad experience with Tree Tops Jungle Safaris. When strong wind, all trees are moving and break the rubber band around the tree between floor and ceiling. When at the same time it is raining it leaks and makes the tree house wet and smells damp from the tree. This is all done...

The Raft Houses are an absolutely nice place to stay for whoever wants to relax and just enjoy nature- back to basics. One prefers to take a bath in the lake rather than that shower.... but that lake is so nice you will not miss such shower. While the Tree Tops "Bungalows" are nothing you like to stay in- they...

We wanted a jungle experience and got it. Yes it is a little rustic but it is fantastic. If you want 5 star luxury go pay for it - but if you want an awesome close to nature experience with a lot of fun thrown in this is the spot. The Tree Tops main resort is an architectural puzzle -...

We spent one night at the raft houses in March 2012 for our honeymoon. The experience was wonderful. The feeling of isolation was magical and the scenery we witnesses getting there was comparable to that of Ha Long Bay in Vietnam. The memory of eating breakfast on a floating motorised dining table boat will live long in the memory too....

We spent one night at the raft houses and absolutely loved it. The huts are in a beautiful location and being able to step out of your hut straight into the clear green lake was a real experience. The staff working at the huts were really friendly and the meals were very tasty. The trips run by the staff were...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Tree Tops Jungle Safaris floating raft house accommodation on Chiew Larn Lake at Khao Sok National Park offers peace and tranquility in a stunning "other world" location - the Gui-Lin of Thailand. The raft houses are clean but basic with bathroom facilities located on the island and accessed across a floating "adventure" bridge - not always a journey for the faint-hearted. There is no electricity at the raft houses, so bring a torch! ... more   less

“Skip the tree houses and perhaps try a new raft house once they're done with all of the construction.”
  • The termite trails in our room actually had live termites in them
  • The stairs leading to our room were a little rotten and cracked and very steep
