The Blue Sky Resort in Khao Kho, Thailand

If you thought you could only see grassy mountain ranges and Western-style cottages in Europe, you’re wrong. You can find all these in Khao Kho, which has been dubbed the “Little Switzerland” of Thailand, and one such place that stands out is The Blue Sky Resort.

Not just a place for accommodation, The Blue Sky Resort also has a beautiful garden and cafe, which will keep you occupied for a short visit. And don’t worry if you’ve already made hotel arrangements elsewhere, because their gardens are open to the public for a small 200THB (~S$8.65) fee.

Frolic among flowers at The Blue Sky Garden

The Blue Sky Garden is made up of 4 zones that each follow a different aesthetic. There’s one brimming with vibrant flowers like lavenders and camellias of all colours, and another with a grand Victorian theme with manicured bushes and stone planters.

As you venture further into the compound, you’ll chance upon a romantic double-swing made of logs, with decorative flowers and leaves adorning its ropes. The swing overlooks the rest of the garden, making it a great place for a couple shot with bae.

Get lost in a garden maze

Cue Love Story by Taylor Swift

In the middle of the site is a garden maze which leads to an elevated pavilion. I felt like a child all over again trying to find my way around the tall bush walls. This is a challenge you’d want to jump on because the view from the standing deck is simply amazing.

From there, we suggest taking the lalang path to get to the other parts of the garden. Grazing the delicate stalks with my fingers gave me the feeling of starring in my very own music video.

Have coffee and pastries at a floral-themed cafe

When you come across a long flight of grass-carpeted stairs, head up and you’ll reach the restaurant. The restaurant is just as beautiful as the gardens, with the outdoor dining area being furnished with dried lavender bunches hanging from the ceiling and comfy rattan chairs with floral cushions.

Alternatively, opt for the indoor seating area which isn’t shy of floral decor as well. There’s also an additional private room, the Flower Room, which fits 20-40 people and can be booked for events or private get-togethers.

The restaurant serves a variety of quick refreshers and desserts. Drinks include your typical coffee lineup like Iced Lattes (100THB, ~S$4.30) as well as chocolatey ice blends like Cocoa Cookie Chocolate (110THB, ~S$4.75). For a little afternoon snack, treat yourself to a sweet Chocolate Tart or Classic Red Velvet Cake at 140THB (~$6.05).

Spend a night in a European-style cottage

The resort comes with many room styles, accommodating to groups of all sizes – there are smaller deluxe rooms to entire cottages for families, with prices starting from S$108.

The Family (S$194 per night) cabin comes with 2 single beds on the upper decks and a double bed on the first level. Besides the ample space, you also get a balcony overlooking the garden.

The balconies are decorated with hanging vines, and the view of the flora and fauna from there is fairytale-worthy. If you prefer an even larger living space, go for the Villa Loft (S$234 per night), a house which can fit a family of 4.

Totally not something you’d expect to find anywhere in Asia

Flower fields at Tanrak Talaymok

When it comes to choosing hotels, you want to make sure that you’re staying in an area that isn’t too far off from tourist sites. Luckily, the Blue Sky Resort Khao Kho is just a 30-minute drive from Khao Kho Windfarm, which has 24 giant wind turbines and seasonal cabbage and strawberry plantations.

And for an extra dose of nature, head to Tanrak Talaymok, a flower field that’s also a 30-minute drive from the resort. Although Khao Kho’s flower season is in the cooler months from November to February, the flowers there are also in full bloom during hotter periods like May.
