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.
