500 Rai Resort is located on Ratchaprabha Dam (Chiew-Larn Lake) , the largest reservoir in Southern Thailand, formed when the Saeng River was dammed in 1985. We are surrounded by the jungles and mountains of Khao Sok National Park. With the perfect combination of Thai hospitality and international luxury, we combine the best in comfort, elegant design, and the heart of nature. Eco-friendliness is at the heart of our operation, and we care for the lake through sustainable waste management, water treatment systems, and supporting local fishermen. Couples, families, and all those who appreciate nature will find a home here, and our caring staff look forward to welcoming you to 500 Rai.

500 Rai Floating Resort is perched on emerald green waters between the lush jungles and towering limestone peaks of Khao Sok National Park. 500 Rai is here to provide a place apart from the bustle of modern life – to immerse you in an environment that is clean, quiet, safe, and private. We believe that business, society and environment have to go hand in hand.

Beauty
Comparable in magnificence to China’s Guilin, or Vietnam’s Halong Bay, but without the crowds, 500 Rai is a world-class destination for nature lovers. Sitting on your porch in the morning, you will bask in the stillness of the jungle and watch the morning mist rise and fall against the cliffs.
