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

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