Khao Yai, one of the most picturesque regions in Thailand, is a very popular vacation spot among locals and tourists. New hotels have emerged to cater to the increasing number of visitors seeking to explore the beauty of this enchanting destination. These hotels combine modern amenities with a touch of nature, offering a comfortable and memorable stay amidst the stunning landscapes.
Here are 4 new hotels to consider when you are planning your trip to Khao Yai.
InterContinental Khao Yai is a luxurious and elegant resort that just opened last year. This amazing property was designed by Bill Bensley, a renowned architect and interior designer, who took inspiration from the glamourous age of train travel during the reign of King Rama V. The standalone reception building is styled like the ticketing counter of a train station and decorated with railway memorabilia. The resort offers train-themed rooms, suites and villas, some of which are created from upcycled train carriages. The ingenious refurbished railway car concept is extended to the fine dining French restaurant called Pirot, Papillon bar, Back on Track Spa and kids’ club. Set amidst lush landscapes and serene surroundings, the resort makes an ideal escape for travelers seeking a retreat in nature.
Sala Khao Yai is a luxurious boutique resort situated on two adjacent scenic hilltops overlooking Khao Yai national park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The secluded sanctuary offers a serene and idyllic retreat for travelers seeking a break from the hustle and bustle of city life. The first phase of Sala Khao Yai was actually opened much earlier in 2009 with only 7 rooms and pool villas on one hilltop. In October 2021, the resort expanded and introduced 4 new pool villas with onsen hot tubs and a signature 3-bedroom pool villa suite, located on another hilltop. A new infinity-edge pool with breathtaking mountain views was also added, providing a perfect spot to relax and watch the amazing sunrise and sunset.
Opened in March 2023, MYS Khao Yai is a Scandinavian-inspired resort that features 6 deluxe rooms, 6 pool villas with heated swimming pools and a 3-bedroom Master Villa. A highlight of the resort is the skylight pool, the largest transparent swimming pool in Thailand. One thing to note is that it only accepts guests above 13 years old, though children are welcome to dine at the on-site Cha La restaurant.
Hotel Labaris is a labyrinth-themed hotel inspired by the mythical tale of Minotaur. The hotel comprises 5 zones; walking through these zones is like going through a storybook chapter by chapter. When you first enter the hotel premises, you will be transported into a fairytale realm filled with captivating wonders and delightful surprises in the welcome zone of Lapin Hill and Whispering Meadows. The next zone is where the hotel rooms are located in the Starry Castle and the Midnight Castle, followed by the pool villa zone. In the last two zones, you will find the hotel’s restaurant and swimming pool, named The Fable Feast, Nomadic Creek and Cub’s Creek, respectively. The hotel is located on Thanarat Road, just 300m away from Hokkaido Flower Park.
With each hotel offering its unique charm and experiences, visitors to Khao Yai are sure to find the perfect setting to create lasting memories in this enchanting region.
