We stayed in Montania Lifestyle hotel mid March (family of 4 adults). Excellent service throughout every step: first of all in making a direct reservation by e-mail: fast and accurate response on our questions and utmost accomodating for our wishes: we were staying first for 1 night in Montania, then spent 1 night on the lake and then came back for 1 night at Montania. Although we opted not to reserve the overnight lake tour via Montania Lifestyle hotel (reason is that we choose for another resort on the lake than the ones offered by them), they took care of us with full respect and pleasure (kept our luggage, gave us an upgrade for the first night, advised whenever requested). Accommodation at the hotel: we stayed both in family bungalow and the Thai Boutique chalet. The chalets are nice and more aligned with the environment (wooden structure) and we preferred this over the family bungalow (although the latter may offer for families a bit more comfort). All comfort is present in both room types, inclusive airco. Swimming pool: nice swimming pool, with sunbeds around it. Seen we have visited a lot of the area, we only were at the pool limited time, but nice area with splendid view to rest a bit. Poolbar offers very good service as well. Meals: breakfast: nice variety of choice at very good quality, lunch snack: good price-quality, fast service, dinner: plenty of choice at good price and quality (we loved dinner in the hotel as we had a far worse experience when we took dinner in one of the restaurants on the road to the national park). Staff: they make the difference in this hotel as they provide excellent service, utmost welcoming and friendly (specific thanks to the 2 ladies at the reception and to Phao - always around and available for helping with a big smile). Activities: we booked half day jungle trekking tour via Montania: was an excellent excursion, with a good guide and all practical aspects were taken care of the by the hotel (transportation to and from the park, extra water, towels, ...). We also booked a visit to elephant sanctuary: also here the hotel reception walked the extra mile: although short term notice from our side, they did everything to comply to our request, called the sanctuary aligning on our request and provided transport (including a stop at a viewpoint under way). As a conclusion: highly recommended place.
PS: I read in some reviews that there is a construction ongoing for an extension of the hotel - this is right, but there was no hindrance at all from these activities during our stay.
