SETTING THE SCENE
The resort is a true paradise for anyone looking for a place surrounded by green vegetation, unpolluted air, and embraced by the 23 degrees Celsius weather. Nestled peacefully on a small street paved to the mountains, Escape Khao Yai is separated from residential areas and barely disturbed by man-made environments. However, visitors who want to hop off to some signature attractions in Khao Yai will find them conveniently reachable.
There are three accommodation buildings comprising 48 rooms which are distinguished from four design concepts: Earth, Wood, Flora and Forest. The Sunken Heated Pool Villas would be a great choice for those looking for a more private stay. Water heating machines are functioned in every pool to make sure that guests can go for a dip all year round.
Green Oak Bistro is the only place you can find food at the resort. But don’t worry, the bistro serves a wide range of dishes – Thai and some infused by Western recipes. The resort has its own organic farm, whereby they undertake the concept of ‘Farm to Table’. The Thai salmon salad wrapped in cabbage leaves (Mieng Salmon) is a dish I can guarantee for the taste. And during November – February, The Escape Winter Yard turns a plain lawn into a venue for a day picnic or barbecue dinner under the clear sky.
