Longkang Chomdaw Resort Review: Hotel By The River

Accommodation: Longkang Chomdaw Resort at Phattalung Thailand @61/1 Moo 1, Lankoi Phatthalung 93210

This short video clip gives you a glimpse of the resort’s room, ground, river, and other attractions that you and your family may love.

Room/Bungalow: If you are coming, make sure to get the bungalows along the river. The place is huge, and the resort has quite a number of bungalows scattered all over the place. But I say, those along the river are the best. Although as seen in the video, all the bungalows are equally cute and aesthetically pleasant to look at; the ones along the river however has the best ambience- calm sound of running water from the river, soft chirps of birds from the forest across your room, and the gentle rustling of leaves as they sway with the wind. 

  • The bed in bungalow 13 has just the right firmness and softness I like in my bed. It is sturdy. It does not make any creaking sound or shakes as you change sleeping position. 
  • The bathroom, although I’m not a fan of nude cement wall, my husband is. He loves the simplicity of it. My kids love the shower; they say the water fell down like rain.^_^ Also, something different in this bathroom that we haven’t seen in any accommodations we have been to before, is the fibreglass roof right above the shower. So the bathroom is super bright during the day, and in the night you could enjoy your night shower while looking at the stars. Just my thought, wouldn’t it be extra special had there been a bathtub?
  • The back balcony is a very nice place to have your afternoon coffee/tea break. It is refreshing with all the trees around and the river below, or even to just chill out, be lazy, and wait for time to pass by.

Amenities: Longkang Chomdaw Resort offers the usual amenities and complimentaries – toiletries, bottled water, coffee and tea, small fridge, and flat-screen TV that shows Thai channels only.

  • WiFi is the resort’s weakness. Although in the hotel’s meeting hall the internet connection is strong, in the bungalow however, it is non-existent. So if you’re a blogger/vlogger and are planning of mixing R &R and work at the same time, you might find it totally frustrating. So, this may not be the right place for you. But if having no internet connection is not an issue, then this is a great place to visit.

Hotel ground: The hotel ground is huge, really huge! There are plenty of places for everything like parking, pond, wooden bridge, huge Stonehenge, instagram-worthy ground structures placed on the hilly part of the resort, and all sorts of flowers and trees here and there.

Food. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner were superb, well, at least to us adults. My kids couldn’t say the same. The meals prepared for us were all healthy, tasty, spicy Thai cuisine with lots of fresh greens and seafoods. 

Hotel staff. The staff, although there were a few negative comments in their Facebook page about them, from experience however they were accommodating. They were helpful regarding my kids’ requests during meal time. We had to be creative with their food as they can’t handle spicy food and the staff were very understanding of this.

Activities: One of the major activities that visitors do whenever they visit Longkang Chomdaw Resort is to go river kayaking. My kids, having experienced this outdoor activity in Satun, were beyond themselves with excitement. Sadly though, the weather did not cooperate with us. The hotel had to cancel it. Well, there’s always a next time.

Overall our stay at Longkang Chomdaw Resort at Phattalung Thailand had been a pleasure. The entire place is well-kept, clean, and definitely a breath of fresh air. We strongly recommend this place for families, group of friends, and even for companies to conduct their trainings or workshop. The resort’s meeting hall is large, it could accommodate hundreds of people.

Southern Thailand is developing at a pace we could not even imagine. and surely a place not to miss. Two hours drive from Phattalung is the largest province of the south, Songkhla province. Please visit hotels in Songkhla for lists of hotel and affordable accommodations.

Rimlay Park Resort Review: Hotel in the Middle of Nowhere

AccomodationRimlay Park Resort

Location: Chang wat Phattalung, Amphoe Muang Phattalung, Tambon Lam Pam, Prak Pra, 93000, Thailand
If you are driving  by private car and type in the resort’s name in English in your GPS, it is going to take you at the middle of nowhere, which is like 1 or 2 kilometers away from where it actually is. So type in its Thai name instead  (copy paste this) ริมเล ปาร์ค รีสอร์ท.

Basically Rimlay Park Resort is situated in a very secluded area with only nature around.  There are no public commutes,  you could either go by private car or through a travel agency.

Room (all air conditioned)

Their Deluxe suite is pretty large in fact it is the most spacious of all the accommodations we have stayed in so far. It has a romantic feel due to its yellow lighting, chandelier, and a soft four-post bed.  There is no white light option though, which others might prefer. And oh,  the bathroom is quite large too.

Here’s a short video clip og Rimlay Park Resort, take a glimpse.

Sockets

Plenty.  Super plenty! The only resort to meet the standards of today’s generation of gadgetry. We did not run short of sockets even with the number of electronics we brought along with us and needed to charge all of them at the same time in the evening.

Wifi

The Wifi is pretty good. We rank it second among the hotel connectivity we have encountered. All of us were able to satisfy all our usual internet cravings like FB, web browsing, blogging and yes even movie streaming was hitch free.

Amenities

They have got the usual complimentary bottled water, towels,  toiletries, flat-screen TV,  fridge, coffee and electric kettle, however, slippers,  hairdryer,  and shower caps are missing. But oh,  they provide different towels for the pool.

Pool

Perhaps the weakest link in this resort is the pool. It is not child friendly infact it is even borderline dangerous. The kids pool is actually not designed for kids as it is not enclosed for safety and going beyond it is a 6 foot drop into the adult’s pool. It is not even friendly to adults who are casual swimmers or those who just want to hang out in the shallow part of the pool because there is non. Aside from the kids area the entirety of the pool is 6 feet deep.

Resort ground

Bungalows surround the pool. It is paved around this area.  However, the driveway that leads from the entrance to the information area is not.   And at the opposite end,  the lake is only a few walks away with grasses, trees,  a pond,  a few herons and other birds around.

Food 

The strongest point of this resort is their food. Food servings are hefty. It is cooked fresh, and is delicious. Fruits are fresh.  There are plenty of drink choices. And it is reasonably priced as well.

Clientele 

Rimlay Park Resort is a great getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life.  It is a great place to go to for,

a quiet holiday amongst fresh  greenery,  just you and your read 
family reunions
Group getaways with friends or family
Intimate moment with your special someone
Photographers who would want to take photos of sunrise in Thalenoi 

Services

Superb!  The lady owner/manager and her staff are among the friendliest and most accommodating people we have come across in the hotels we have been in.  They attended to our needs without invading our privacy.

Price

Affordable and reasonable!
Two nights cost us 3200 baht ($97)including breakfast of four.  They also offer group packages.

Overall

We give Rimlay Park Resort 4/5 rating.  Although it does not have a proper kids pool,  our kids enjoyed it nonetheless. The rooms and toilet are squeaky clean,  air is fresh,  and they are tolerant of kids.
So for sure, we will be back on our next long weekend.
