To start off, this resort was a great place for a getaway from the busy life of city. Be prepared to be charmed by the staff workers of the resort, who would go the extend to please the resort guests.
For Asian tourists, be pampered by the food. One of the highlights of this trip was to see what else the resort would prepare for us. Even the simple breakfast was good.
Included into our package was rafting. We arrived during the rain period. The water was a little more rough but it was enjoyable. The rafting made the trip worthwhile.
The sad news was that the place was not easy to be located. Even the google maps was not helpful, as it placed Engtan Resort at a wrong place. Engtan was far from Pak Bara. However, the journey was worth the hassle, as the resort was charming.
Another problem was booking the resort. As friendly as the staff workers were, they were not fluent in English. They barely used English. Even the website was in English. It was not easy to book a tour package. But when you did, it was really worth the trip.
This resort was way after Wang Sai Thong Waterfall. Be brave enough to continue the journey after the waterfall and you would surely reach the resort.
A place where there is peace and tranquility, with the soothing sound of the river nearby. The staff is excellence in service with minimum English.
Take the package where all meals and recreation included. Caving at Phu Pha Phet, visit to Wang Sai Tong waterfall, kayaking on the whitewater and into Chet Kot cave.
Been to Engthan resort twice and will be coming again for many more time.
