500 Rai Resorts in Thailand's Khao Sok National Park - TTM+ Interview with MD

Thais have long known about the beauty of Khao Sok National Park in Thailand's southern Surat Thani province, but the destination is still not very well known amongst travellers from abroad. That's about to change.

Home to a resort company that sounds more like a currency exchange or property investment business, 500 Rai Resorts has a portfolio of two different properties, a floating resort which consists of 18 duplex rooms that can accommodate 80 – 100 people, and a Farmhouse, located some 60kms from the lake, which has six rooms that can accommodate up to 22 people.

Both resorts are in a perfect location for nature lovers, photographers, hikers and those who just want to enjoy some peace and quiet, away from the hordes of tourists that can be found in many other places.

As the theme of the recent Thailand Travel Mart (TTM+) 2019 in Pattaya was ‘New Shades of Emerging Destinations’, Steven Howard of TravelNewsAsia.com took the opportunity to sit down with Atirat Danphattharaworawat, Managing Director of 500 Rai, to ask him more about these two amazing resorts.

In the interview, filmed at TTM+ on 6 June 2019, Khun Atirat explains where the two resorts are located and how guests can travel there.

We discuss how the two resorts differ, what the rooms are like, where guests are coming from, what the average length of stay is, and which markets they will be targeting for the rest of 2019 and 2020.

Khun Atirat also tells us what there is to do near the resorts, what the prices are like and whether there are any all-inclusive options available, and how he, and the local community, are working to protect the environment where the resorts are located.

You will also discover why so few foreigners know of his resort and why that is about to change, why he was attending the TTM+, and how the local community gets involved with the resorts and much, much more in the video and podcast below.
