Here are 9 cool resorts tucked away in Thailand’s lush jungles for your next peaceful holiday.

The rooms are all tucked away in a private garden that has been groomed to look just like a real forest. 

The best part is that no trees were cut down to make space for the buildings. Instead, spaces are cut from the buildings themselves to ensure the trees have space to grow within them – that’s amazing!
