ACCOMMODATION

Guests who cannot resist the clear water are more than welcome to indulge in a refreshing dip. They can also try their hand at fishing using traditional Karen hilltribe woven rattan baskets. This is a popular pastime, especially amongst our younger visitors, and an activity which is bound to bring laughter and enjoyment for the whole family. A gaggle of affable peacocks, geese and Bantam chicks roam the resort grounds and waterfall freely, adding to the unrivaled appeal of Sukantara, to the delight of shutterbug visitors.

Dinner can be enjoyed at the restaurant next to the waterfall – a feast for the eyes and the taste buds. The menu features authentic Lanna recipes handed down by our grandmothers and sumptuously prepared for a true culinary adventure. In the evenings, the soundtrack of the trickling waters, interspersed with the the peacocks calling out to each other, combine to make up the unique experience that is Sukantara Cascade Resort & Spa.

ACTIVITIES
Active guests will be spoilt for choice when staying at Sukantara Cascade Resort & Spa. One of the most popular activities is exploring the surrounding wonders of nature and a well marked trail meanders through the forest leading to a national park, while the main "Taad Mok Waterfall" is just one kilometer away by car. The hiking path starts at the suspension bridge, and once you reach the opposite bank, the walkway joins with a trail that the local Karen hill tribe villagers regularly trek to forage in the forest, where they dig for bamboo shoots, look for mushrooms, find orchids, and collect honey. The walk takes about one and a half hours roundtrip, which as experienced forest trekkers will tell you, is not a strenuous hike.

For guests who would rather take a more leisurely walk with multiple pitstops to enjoy the view, just 15 minutes by foot is a cliff viewpoint where the sun sets against a backdrop of lush green rice paddies. Lining the trail is a plethora of natural wonders which vie for attention and admiration, including colorful wild flowers, orchids, and other rare plants. The ongoing forest conservation efforts also mean exotic wild birds are still in abundance. Along the forest path, a patch of bamboo forest flanking both sides of the trail forms a picturesque photo opportunity. The tips of the bamboo clusters gently lean inwards to form a symmetrical arch as if to welcome an auspicious ceremony. Walking under the captivating bamboo arches, just as guests may start to feel the first tinges of weariness, a refreshing mist announces arrival at the main "Taad Mok Waterfall". Any inklings of tiredness will instantaneously float way with the mist. Like a proud conqueror standing at the highest point of a cliff, guests can lean out and admire the cascade tumbling 20 meters down onto the rocks below and snaking off in a clear stream.
