Thames Valley Khao Yai is an English inspired hotel in the heart of Pak Chong, a 10-minute drive from Khao Yai National Park and a few stones away from the famous Palio Village and Primo Piazza. The setting is typically very English with a charismatic view of the river similar to the Thames River in London. The resort is absolutely picture-perfect and it is impossible not to take a selfie here ‘cause every angle is Instagrammable.
It is impressive that the resort is highly maintained. The room is clean, spacious and very sophisticated. I liked every detail in the room which they designed carefully and the view of the tranquil atmosphere it brought was indeed rejuvenating. The room is equipped with amenities such as tea and coffee maker, Smart TV, Hair dryer, In-room safe, mini bar, beautiful bathroom with complete toiletries, and a reliable WIFI connection. I loved the views from our room with its natural lush greenery that compliments the English Style Village. True to its words, it has a European feel!
They also have other facilities like the Rose Spa which is perfect for a relaxation after a long day of exploring Khao Yai, wonderful pool with the mountain range view, Fitness equipment for all the Gym buff out there, and a lovely English garden that will make your stay more enjoyable.
Aside from the impressive facilities it offers, I adored the cozy and elegant Castle Restaurant and Tea Room. They served Thai and Western food with excellent customer service. I liked that the staff is very attentive and one of them offered to take a photo for me and my friend struggling to take a duo shot.
We had a buffet style breakfast and Spareribs and Salmon for dinner which is recommended by the chef. Dining here is romantic with an English countryside vibe and high afternoon tea with a charming quaint village style as a backdrop which I enjoyed the most. We had Chamomile tea, as usual, that adds more relaxation to the matter.
Thames Valley Khao Yai is definitely a great city escape and its picturesque landscape will make me want to go back. I, certainly don’t have any second thoughts of coming back to this lovely hotel. Every angle is so classic and modish, it is perfect for anyone who would love a city break.
