Like the Lost City of Atlantis, Atlantis Valley is a world of its own. With multiple spots to chill at – from having a picnic right by a stream, to a heartwarming meal within the cafe, Atlantis Valley looks like a safe haven for any stumbling hiker in the area.

The wooden lodge that is home to the baristas and the cafe itself looks like a cozy place for anyone to stop by for an afternoon’s visit.

To get to the viewpoint below –  a perfect place to have your meal or afternoon tea – simply take the stairway down. It overlooks the stream that is right by the cottage and lets you have first row seats to immerse yourself in nature.

Once you’re done exploring the area, let’s get into the dining experience that you’re bound to be impressed by whilst you’re here.

The entire appeal of Alice in Wonderland is the idea that you can escape into a fantasy world, and leave your real world problems behind. Though you can’t exactly walk through the looking glass here, you’ll get to indulge in a spot of afternoon tea by the stream as though you’re Alice In Wilderness – pardon the reference.

Here’s a closer shot of the yummy treats they have here. TBH, the ‘EAT ME’ cake vibes are truly hitting me.

The afternoon tea sets goes for ฿999 (~USD28.72). If you make a booking in advance, the whole set-up with all these lovely bakes and props will only come at ฿799 (~USD22.97). FYI, we’d recommend coming all dressed up to have this dreamy fairytale picnic right by the stream for extra immersion points.

Since you’ll be busy snacking on delectable tea time treats, you’ll probably need help capturing how afternoon tea went in this absolutely picturesque setting.

Here at Atlantis Valley, you can arrange for a photoshoot with all the props readily provided for you, as long as you drop the crew a message on their Facebook page in advance.

And don’t worry if you’re not much of an outdoorsy person – or wannabe IG influencer – you can also enjoy a meal indoors here on soft tatami mats too.

From afternoon tea treats to western mains, this cafe has thought everything through. So for my fellow hotpot lovers, indulge in a Japanese-style shabu shabu session here while cozying up on their tatami seats. Random shout out to that jenga-looking table too. Cute.

If you’re a bit of a romantic, you can even arrange for a fancy-shmancy candlelit date with your bae here. Imagine eating straight from the comforting warm hotpot, and pairing sips of the rich broth with a touch of red wine.

Now as far as dates go, that’s probably going to be a pairing I will remember for long time.
