        After checking in, I understood why the price was lower than other resorts: swimming pool pump broken and dirty water, the whole resort looks almost abandonned. We initially thought: we will not stay here. But the nice staff and admittedly clean cottages made us stay. Considering the price, I would still recommend other resorts as there are PLENTY nearby.

        A couple of days in nature”

        Hakuna Matata resort is a great place to stay if you want to feel that you are in the middle of nature but still close to the main road between Pak Chong and Khao Yai :) It doesn't offer any guided tours of the park, but close to other guest houses that do. And it's more confortable than guest houses, with hot shower, wifi and AC. The staff is really nice - they changed our room in the middle of the night when we discovered bugs in the bathroom! Too bad they don't speak more English.

        Hakuna Matata Resort & Spa”

        Thai cottage house style

        We arrived at the very late night from the train station and was charged too much money to travel there. From Pa Chong town, probably 100 bath will be more than enough. The hotel locates half way between Pa Chong and Khao Yai park and closer to Pa Chong. Room is nice, environment is nicer but the big problem is no staff speak English. We can't get help from them and it is very disappointing because it looks like a very nice resort. We saw some other westerners and we are sure they have the same problem, not having help from the hotel.

        So good we stayed there twice! ”

        Spaious gardens, individual cottages, swimming pool.

        We enjoyed it so much, we came back there on our return trip. Cottages are comfortable, with bathrooms which are partly outdoor. Bathrooms are private, but slightly 'open air', so watch out for the man-eating mosquitoes! Fantastic spacious gardens with views to Khao Yai. Breakfast was OK, but varied from good to basic depending on how many guests were staying. Swimming pool is at the bottom of the garden. We will go back again.

        Good value bungalow huts”

        Situated on the road up to Khao Yai these bungalows, log cabins, and some individual family houses are spread out in the grounds. Nice and spacious. Quite private. There's a swimming pool in the middle of the lawn, and the reception/breakfast area is nice.

        Comfortable overnight stay”

        Quiet, Green, Quaint

        I was doing a weeknight stay on my way to Pak Tong Chai area for farm biz. I decided to stay in Kao Yai area to check out the scene since i have never been there. I found this hotel to have great weeknight rates and booked it several hours before. I arrived near midnight and the staff promptly showed me to my room. I actually was given cottage room (one grade down from what i ordered) by mistake, I was a little disappointed but at that time of night it was too late to care. The bathroom is not for everyone, it's located outside in an open space. I like it because it reminded me of my time on Maui. I didn't like the mattress. I can feel the coils. What i do like is that it's very peaceful and the room is cute simple. TV is more like a decor. I like opening all the doors of the cottage (2 large sets) in the morning and the amazing view of an endless field of green tall grass. I like it that outside my room there is a wooden bench table and chair where i can do some reading and work with my laptop. Too bad my time was short but I would have loved to stay there all morning and get some good work and reading done. There is no wifi but you can get True 3G signal from phone. The breakfast is not exactly gourmet but does the job. I would strongly recommend this hotel for the peacefulness and the view. it's a great place to get away for the weekend fosho.
