Khao Luang Resort, Lan Saka, Nakhon Si Thammarat

Within two weekends of each other we found ourselves back in Lan Saka, in Nakhon Si Thammarat province, for different running events. This time we decided to use a different resort, which was recommended to us at our first visit, but it was fully occupied at that occasion. 
The Khao Luang Resort is conveniently located opposite the road that leads to the Khao Lung National park in Khao Kaeo, well worth a visit.

The resort boats just a handful of bungalow and a couple of rooms for larger parties with multiple beds.
Our bungalow was made of wood and looked really worn out, although there was a tv, a/c and hot water in the shower. Overall we thought the better rooms was had at our previous choice but the owner made up for a lot, She really went out of her way to accommodate us, she got me wifi card for the room and in general she was very friendly.

The resort also has a kind of river playground at the river side with a cable construction to get to the other side of the river or drop in midway plus inner tubes and kayaks for rent. 
The surrounding area is stunningly beautiful with mountain views and small rivers running all over the place.

If you like nature, this is a nice and off the beaten track destination!
