1 Bedroom Pool Villa

This is how the interior of the pool villa room looks like. The paintings match the lights which I felt gave the room a very nice touch.

escapekhaoyai_poolvillabed

The 1 bed room pool villa is 45 square meters in size. They actually have villas with up to 3 bed rooms! At 263 square meters in size, the 3 bed room pool villa can accommodate up to 10 people.

Now, what is a pool villa without a pool? You will get a private balcony with a sofa, a small table, a chair and a massage table. You can arrange for a massage in your room if you would like.

But the main highlight of your balcony would be the Sunken Heated Pool. They are small in size, not suitable for swimming but is perfect to just relax in.

escapekhaoyai_greenoakbistro_bbq

This is the Escape Barbecue Platter. If you are at Escape Khao Yai on a weekend, the Escape Yard would be open and you can have this outside in the garden.

escapekhaoyai_greenoakbistrobbq

The platter we had consisted of beef steak,  lamb, chicken breast, pork, potato, salmon, mussels, squid and prawns.

escapekhaoyai_bbq_seafood

The prawn was a little dry for my liking and the squid was really chewy. I quite liked the mussels but I would say the salmon was my favourite seafood dish.

escapekhaoyai_bbq_meat

The lamb was my favourite meat for sure. I liked the beef steak as well but I found the chicken and pork a little too hard and dry.

escapekhaoyai_greenoakbistro_escapesalad

This is the Escape Salad (240฿) which I really loved. I didn’t think I would finish the salad when there was so much meat and seafood around but this salad was really delicious. I loved the freshness of it (they grow their own vegetables by the way) and I especially loved the mushrooms and eggplant. Overall, I seriously enjoyed this salad.

escapekhaoyai_greenoakbistro_DIYSpicySalmon

This is called the DIY Spicy Salmon (380฿). You are suppose to take a piece of lettuce and fill it up with all the ingredients. Onions, lime, nuts, chilli padi, throw them all in and of course, do not forget the salmon.

escapekhaoyai_escapetosangria

With such special meals, why not try some of their speciality cocktails such as Sangria Cocktail (300฿) or Wild Honey Old Fashioned Cocktail (300฿).

escapekhaoyai_icecream

Don’t leave Escape Khao Yai without trying their ice cream!

I was feeling some Ben and Jerry vibes from this and I would not mind more of their ice cream anytime. Meaning of course, I loved it.
