    Beautiful Bungalows in Remote Location”

    The bungalows and the tranquil location.

    We had first booked a room at the resort but when we got there we saw it was just a hot room above the kitchen and we upgraded to one of the beautiful bungalows. I definitely wouldn't go there to stay in anything but the bungalows. They are well kept and big enough for a family with an upstairs sleeping part. We also enjoyed the food cooked there and found the staff friendly and helpful.

    this is a floating hotel set in the mountains on a massive lake, which has a fantastic array of wildlife that you can see and hear all around the hotel. the staff were very friendly and helpful, don't expect luxury but if you like adventure and trying something new try this hotel.

    nice location but definitely not the resort”

    Nice location , clear water and beautiful nature

    there are 4 of us , we booked the family room , the reason we booked this resort is the all day electricity which they has been advertised but when we got there , there is no electricity for us to use at all , we can't use the fans or any lights , in the day time is bearable but night time is horrible, the staffs are not very friendly and welcoming us , their reservation team aren't professional , they told us our booking from AGODA isn't confirmed , even we had a confirmation paper to present them at their check in desk. then they called the reservation staffs , they told other bookings aren't check in today so we can replace their room. we were very dissapppointed. the FB staffs are very slow on taking order and cookings , basically i would say its a local running hostel 2 stars. inside the room , the sink isn't clean , the bathroom is so small , not convenient at all. the breakfast is under standard. they even ruined the environment by digging a whole to throw in for the resorts trashes and garbages.

    It was fun, but not worth the money”

    Seclusion

    My 7-year-old son had a lot of fun but I'm afraid my wife and I were not at all impressed. First, the position of the hotel as given is incorrect. Second you cannot drive to the hotel and there is no car park despite the description stating that there is; the hotel is inaccessible by road. Neither are there any shops. Third, when we arrived at where we thought the hotel was, we found that we had to take a 50 minute long-tail boat ride to get to the site and there is no mention of this. Now it gets really Taccy: we phoned the number of the hotel and found that we were talking to a rep who was 50 metres away. She breezily told us that it was another THB2,500 (US$85, GBP(£)52),one way, to get to the hotel. I have lived in Thailand long enough to recognize a Thai scam when I see one, so told her we would think about it. 20 minutes later it was THB1,200 both ways and including a "Safari". This I accepted, reluctantly. We had booked a "Family Villa" for 1 night and found there was no difference between that and the standard room. The other guests were all Thai and I discovered that they did not pay anything like the rates that we did. The hotel has seen better days but was never, ever, even a one star establishment. As mentioned, the Thais payed nothing like this amount and it is a typical Thai scam. IF the boat fare was included in the original cost and IF we had been warned as to its necessity and IF we had the same rates as the locals we might not have come away with the feeling that we had been totally ripped-off. Beautiful scenery, but we will never go again.

    The amazing views

    The views from this hotel are amazing and the little huts are great, but avoid the standard rooms as they don't have the best facilities and get too hot at night. It was great to be able to have free use of the kayaks and inner tubes to make the most of the lake and definitely go and explore the surrounding jungle.

    Location and views are great

    The resort offers standard rooms but these are not great and common toilet facilities are a distance away. Do pay a bit more and get the villas which sleeps 4, has a small private toilet and the shower is outside but has gas heated hot water. The villa comes with 2 fans but electricity is only turned on from 6pm to 6 am. Food at the resort is basic but acceptable and hot beverage is available on self service.

    Lovely hotel in a wonderful surrounding”

    nice and clean rooms, friendly staff, free activities, everything easy going, good and lots of food at cheap price

    The family villa was quite spacious, a lot of wood and would easily give room for five people. The room is clean and there is plenty of water for showering. The whole resort is floating on the lake. Kids love the place for swimming, free kayaking and the jump tower out in the lake. The food in the restaurant comes in big portions and is very tasty. The staff is friendly and helpful. We felt welcomed and would go there anytime again. By the way - there were no mosquitoes at all! A really nice place to relax and enjoy the water.

    Interesting place”

    We had an unusual visit... in the fact that there were absolutely no other people staying at the hotel when we were there. There were 5 staff and 5 of us in my family. I have a mixed feeling about the place. The lake is beautiful. The mountains are beautiful. The floating bungalows are clean on the inside, but like many places in Thailand, the resort is kinda sloppy and/or run-down. We enjoyed our night there and my picky daughter said that we should have stayed 2 nights... so she approved. To get to the bungalows you have to find the dock near the dam and hire a boat to take you out. There was a woman down at the dock with KeereeWarin resort written on her back, so I trusted that she would get us to the right place on the lake. First, we went up the hill from the dock and she had me pay for an entrance fee at a ticket booth. 300 Baht per adult / 150 baht kids. Then she got a boatman that cost 2800 baht - who would sleep in a bungalow and drive us back the next morning

    Amazing location has now become a racket.”

    The lake is beautiful, the huts are kinda neat, the boat ride is fun but because of so much tourism, it has become a huge racket! We took our family of five (3 kids) onto the lake and needed two rooms for our family. So we splurged and paid about $400.00 for one night. However, when you arrive at the pier, they (both the lodge and the independent water taxi company) dinged us for $140.00 water taxi to take us out to our room (even though the posted rate was $90.00). Only after we paid they told us we have to pay another $60.00 to get into the boat because it is in a national park. The 1 hour boat ride took us 3 hours because of the broken motor which meant we got there just before dark only to see a huge "checkout at 9am" sign behind the desk. This gave us very little time to enjoy the place. The beds were infested with ants (which I can live with since it's in the jungle but at that price) and the rooms were pretty run down. The restaurant was aware that it had a monopoly on food.

    PLEASE DONT BOOK HERE IF NOT THAI”

    The staff were the least friendly people we have ever encountered, barely looking at us as we arrived let alone saying hi. They didn't speak English however this was not the problem, the attitudes towards "foreign" (British) travelers was disgusting. Creating additional fees just to get more money out of us - with false advertisement of a deposit for paddles and life jackets and not giving the deposit back. The main eating area stunk of sewage with the toilets directly next to the kitchen, which we think is the cause of our D&V after just one meal there. I would not send my worst enemy here. The lake is beautiful, just stay somewhere else. Also, just a warning that signal is lost halfway through the national park.

    Zero service, poor atitude and bring your own food”

    The room was okay

    The location is stunning, the service is non existent, the food barely digestible. On arrival we were told no booking existed, after showing confirmation still required argument as no one could read English. As we are expatriates with some Thai language skills we insisted on the days arrivals. There was one booking from Agoda for 5. When politely asked just how many arrivals of 5 guests in a villa with extra bed did they have? We simply received a blankly hostile look.

    Nice place, overpriced food, disinterested staff”

    View, View, View

    Upon arriving at the Dam, we were told we had to pay for a longtail boat which was not included in the price of the room. When we get to the hotel, the room is small and a dormitory on top of the restaurant (not explained in the room description), so we upgraded to the floating bungalow for an extra (ouch!). Those rooms are pretty sweet if you can afford them, and the moonlit night on the lake is perfect for swimming! They had several activities including a hike to a viewpoint, coral cave, and a hike to Nam Taloo cave (all for an extra fee of course) and a really cool diving platform out in the lake. The staff was a little rude, even for Southern Thailand, and the breakfast was pretty basic. All in all, everything was good, but expensive. My advise: book through a local tour company instead of online.

    Gorgeous Location and Views... Poor Service!!”

    Location/View, Overwater Rafthouse Room, Diving Platform

    We booked Keeree Warin for the experience of staying in an Overwater Raft Villa, fully understanding the accommodations would be minimalistic. However, the $150 per night we paid for a family villa was not worth the experience! The room itself is fine... hot outdoor shower, lounge chair and table on patio and a relatively comfortable bed. The property is a bit rundown with uneven plank walkways, broken boards and a few rusty spots on the ladder out of the lake. There was only one outlet in our room and it was broken, so we couldn't charge camera batteries or iPads... all of which we could deal with. However, once we arrived at the hotel, following the 1 hour longtail boat ride, we were virtually "stuck." There was VERY little English spoken by the staff, which made it difficult to communicate at all... ordering food, scheduling transfers to the pier for departure and trying to find out about tours. They didn't seem to have any tours available to see wildlife, the Coral Cave or to travel deeper into the lake to experience the beauty at sunset or sunrise. The most disappointing thing though, was the almost unfriendly, unhelpful attitude they all seemed to have... as if we were an inconvenience, including playing music at a very high volume that could be heard in our room, while we chose to stay on the lake for the peace and quiet. We booked through Agoda for 2 nights in a Family Villa and had an email confirmation showing full payment and room type. At breakfast, following the first night, we were shown on their paperwork that we had a standard room for the second night and were told we would have to move. We had to take time out of our day to travel to a part of the lake where cell service could be obtained to call their boss and sort everything out. I recommend taking an overnight lake tour from one of the hotels in Khao Sok that offer it. With the lack of wildlife, a 1 night rafthouse stay and longtail tour of the lake is quite sufficient. Stunning views though

    Wow, Thailand is amazing...worst hotel ever”

    Its in Khao Sok, beautiful

    So first let me say I have lived in Thailand for 9 months, I have been all over the islands, North, South and East. I've been to Cambodia and Loas as well. Southeast Asia is full of scammers and if you are clueless or on a short holiday trip you won't notice or care. After booking the hotel I was told the boat trip from the pier to the hotel would be included. Then when I arrive its 2000 baht. I explained I wasn't a tourist and showed my work permit and was given a discount (1500 round trip). Then we arrive and the standard room is 7feet by 9 feet with 2 small thin mattress pads on the floor. The fan doesn't work in the hottest part of the day because the power allowance doesn't come on til 630pm and ends at 5am. Now its time to eat. The menu is in Thai on one side and English the other. But the best part is there are different prices for the same things. Thai price for Thai people and High price on the English side for foreigners and tourists. After seeing this we were annoyed to say the least. Lastly the rooms are directly above the kitchen and restaurant. So if you want to sleep you have to wait for the last guests to go to sleep. Then morning comes and we were awakened at 530am by boats starting and guests leaving on "morning safaris". So if you want to be ripped off, sleep for 6 hours in a tiny hot room, get horrible service and get treated like an invader go ahead and stay at the worst hotel in Southeast Asia.

    don't book this hotel!!”

    The lake is very pretty

    This hotel is a scam. Do not make the same mistake we did. We booked one night *with* longboat transfer (it was stated very clearly on our receipt) only to discover that we had to pay an additional 2500 baht to take a private boat to the hotel (it costs more if you stay more than one night). There was no bargaining possible, that was the price and if we didn't pay it, we would lose our night at this hotel (even though it was supposedly included...) This was just the beginning of the scam... The hotel is not in good condition, mold and mildew in the outdoor shower, ants in the bathroom. They kayaks are also covered with mold because they are never cleaned. There is only one chair to sit outside, and since you usually travel with at least two people, one person has to sit outside alone while the other person...? The hotel staff are some of the rudest people I encountered in Thailand. The food, which you have to buy at the "restaurant", is very bad and three times more expensive than it should be, especially the breakfast, which was very nearly inedible. Soggy, stale "toast" and an under-cooked (as in mostly raw), cold egg. There is only beer and fanta to drink. Staying at this hotel is simply not worth it--electricity is only on from about 6:30pm to 5am or so and yet the television at the restaurant plays loudly all day which disturbs the peace and ruins the atmosphere. In short, don't stay here.
