InterContinental Khao Yai Resort

InterContinental Khao Yai Resort

Khao Yai National Park, Thailand

Designed by world famous architect, Bill Bensley, the InterContinental Khao Yai Resort draws inspiration from a bygone era, where rail travel in Thailand was both luxurious and necessary. Some details are subtle, but others like the heritage rail-car themed rooms take the design of the hotel to a new and unique level.

The setting of Khao Yai National Park makes it an ideal base to explore nature in relatively close proximity to the capital, Bangkok. The jungle and lake surroundings house a wide variety of flora and fauna including wild elephants and tropical fruits, making it a beautiful place to relax. Facilities at the hotel are plentiful and include several dining options, in-house spa, and a variety of family friendly activities. The signature restaurant, Poirot and upcycled train car, Papillon Bar are not to be missed.


A comfortable, unashamedly stylish back-to-nature experience with a variety of activities on offer.
