A unique experience staying in a jungle @ Chestnut Hill Eco Resort. We liked the environment so much. Room is basic, simple which suit the theme of the resort. Staffs are very helpful. Food is fantastic including the free breakfast come with the room.
Travelling from Singapore, first time to visit Chestnut hill. I wanted my kids to experience the rural life and we did. The view is ecstatic and you're really one with nature. All staff are very accommodating. I'd like to commend Piano for being so nice and hospitable, she's a Chestnut Hill gem! We had a day tour at the forest and their organic garden, we dipped in a stream and it was a very memorable awesome experience! Location is far from airport, but if u want to stay away from city life, I'd recommend this place.
Its a great place on the lap of nature. if you prefer to stay in a calm quiet atmosphere free from hustle bustle and relax looking at the greenery around and birds chirping then this is the place for you. The breakfast they provide is huge for 1 person plus most of the things they cook very organic such as home made jams. the chef is very friendly. can make vegetarian on request. the rooms were clean but be prepared with mosquito repellent as lots of greenery around. one can hike the rubber plantations or to the waterfall. hey have a meditation center and multipurpose hall.overall great place to chill. couldn't imagine that this kind of place exists in hat yai.
Back to nature”
A tranquil and serene place to relax and away from bustle city. A resort was transform from a dusun buah-buahan (fruits hamlet) to an eco resort which you can pick any fruits like Langsat, chestnut and so all, it is all free for you to eat during your stay if you found any. Stay at Double bed with Balcony Room, well the room is small but enough for a couple or solo stay.
I'm a female solo traveller and I stayed here for one night. This is a long way from Hatyai and well hidden among villages off the main road, so I would recommend to book a transport from the resort or drive/ride there by yourself. However, there is a steep curve slope just outside the resort, so be CAREFUL when you maneuver your vehicle and don't be like me (I lost my balance and fell from my motorcycle). Staffs (especially Piano, Lee and the maintainance uncle) tried to help me by cleaning my wound and fixing my minor damage motorcycle. Their help has touched me. The resort is situated on the mid of mountain where you can simply immerse yourself in nature. There is some routes for hiking and to a stream used by the locals (unfortunately I didn't get to go to these places due to my injury). There is a restaurant and cafe on site which serve great food and drink. The complimentary breakfast (they serve pasta!) is great too! *see next comment for continuation*
It is not a place for retreat anymore”
The core value used to be a place for retreat, for anyone who seeks solitude, but as time passes, things change, just like it’s name that’s changed as well. The place, food, surroundings, atmosphere itself and staff are superb, making it a nice resort. However, the solitude that used to make this place unique has gone, left only off and on silence which is now just a byproduct from the moment it’s not swarmed by tourists. Btw, I spent 3 peaceful nights and a last horrible one caused by a group of inconsiderate guests who continued partying and singing karaoke with super loud speaker, with the noise level like that in nightclub, till over midnight without any policies from the resort to stop them disturbing other guests at all. Not a perfect peaceful holidays I must say. I can see it’ll continue going into this way more and more according to the increasing popularity this place has gained. So if you’re looking for a retreat, I suggest you to find somewhere else, but if you’re looking for a resort to spend a nice weekend with family then this could be a good option for you, if you’re lucky enough not to have other disturbing guests staying with you on the same night. Highly recommend for a day trip though.
Very nice and relaxing environment.”
Suitable for everyone to stay in especially for those who like to seek for peace. It's another side of town, so is a quiet place. Along the road to the resort, you can see a lot of rubber tree which you and stop by and take some photos because the view is just amazing. Friendly staff and clean room. Simple breakfast but it's delicious.
nice place for turning your life to an airplane mode.”
Nice weather and good location among nature. I booked the cottage room. The room was clean and neat, but I'd like to recommend the resort to find some better blanket for better sleep.. I expected good breakfast but it's not really good enough I think. BTW, it's a good place to relax and put everything down and immerse yourself in nature. I guess I will visit there again soon.
Lovely place for a retreat”
The resort is a great place for a retreat. It is far away from the main road (7/8km). No alcohol served, as it is halal. And there is no fridge in the room, so for those who like to drink some beer to relax, please take note. I am touched with the staff hospitality, as they do their best to make us feel good. They cook omelet for my cousin (from US) because she cannot get use to the local breakfast, without charge.
This place will give you real natural”
This resort is surrounded by many kinds of tree. Birds' sound and other animals will make you relax. Forget digital alarm clock, all natural sound like bird and waterfall will wake you up in the morning. The resort has large area so you can walk around. There are nice views that wait you to find. :)
Overall this is an excellent and relaxing place to stay”
This place is very safe for children to walk within the compound and peaceful. Don't even need to lock the room. The staffs here are very helpful and friendly. The food is very tasty. But it's a bit noisy the dormitory at night and quite some mosquitoes. That does not stop me from coming back again! My 7 year old girl enjoy this place so much!
Close to nature retreat”
This place coupled with their dedicated staff's will make anyone's vacation splendid. They were very understanding, helpful and flexible. Our group consist of strict vegetarians and the staff went out of their way to prepare good meals for us. We were very touched by their hospitality. The environment in itself will give you ample of things to do - a good hike, a good shower in waterfall... We managed to venture through one hike trail nearby their library. If you need cab, inform the staff and they will arrange for you at a good rate.
accessibility, Cleanliness, facilities ”
room was top of the hill, néed to walk stairs carrying ur luggage and walking with wounded leg was not fun.. no aircon, room was not cleaned, insects, even though neted, staff was helpful. Even though we book though Agoda.. The staff says they got confirmation from booking.com.... That part was so confusing.. We thought Agoda already credit from our card but end up we was looking was to pay in Thai baht.. Bit messy experience though..
Great stay! ”
It’s a bit far from the city but it’s an amazing place to spend a tranquil holiday! I like the environment and the friendly staff, some of them can speak fluent English! It’s a bit deep inside the forest thus activities are mostly outdoor based. My best stay in HatYai!
Getting back to nature”
Excellent place to get away from city life and back to nature. Would recommend this place to anyone needing a break from the city. Very remote and not easy to get to if you have no transport
