Suansanguansuk Resort, Wang Nam Keow, Thailand

| | Comments
Wang Nam Keo, part of a beautiful mountain range on the southern edge of Isaan, is not short of resorts. But choosing one is difficult without some recommendation beforehand. Well, after some legwork and a night's stay, I can recommend this one.

The choice of accommodation ranges from rooms to chalets to more spacious family quarters. All of the buildings stand on a hill from which you can see both the sunset and the sunrise. Below is a lake shared with the neighbouring resort, owned by the same family. Children can take out pedaloes and the whole family can enjoy a bike ride around the grounds.

The chalets are new and don't yet feature on the resort's website. The chalet rooms are of good size and, in addition to the usual shower room facilities, you can step into a small private courtyard and enjoy a cold shower. In fact, there's room for your friends to join you out there!

The chalet rate is THB2,800 per night, depending on the season.

Although Thai breakfast is included, there is no evening meal on offer. However, opposite the entrance is a perfectly good restaurant that's open all day. No doubt there are others close by.

This is a beautiful and peaceful place to rest after a day exploring the area or to relax away from the arduous duties of retirement in Thailand.

From Korat, head south and around the Pak Thong Chai bypass up into the mountains. Look out for the left turn with a large sign saying 'Coffee Hut'. Take the turn and the resort is about 3 kilometres on the left.

The website is in Thai but if you Google it you will be offered a translation.

this post is so nice and very well said. i planned to go to thailand this coming august with my husband by the way my husband is an american how much rate for every night in dollars plz. and thanks again.


Hi Desiree.

Thank you for your kind comment.

The US$ is rated at 34THB at the moment. To keep up to date with the exchange rate, go to the currency exchange link to the right of the Grumpy Expat blog main page. I find that the best rate is to be obtained at the banks here rather than back home.

If you need any more information prior to your trip, let me know and I'll do my best to help.

Best wishes,
