Coconut Palms

Are you looking for a hotel with a pool in Maha Sarakham ?

 Coconut Palms is unique and is probably the only small boutique hotel with a swimming pool in Mahasarakham. We are about 45 minutes from Khon Kaen airport and only 10 minutes from the Maha Sarakham University. The city centre is 15 mins where you will find the new Sermthai complex with cinemas / restaurants  etc..  

Set amongst  tropical coconut and palm trees in Kantarawhichai village, Maha Sarakham, our small and private bungalow resort with pool is the perfect place to stay.  We are nothing like all the other “Thai style” hotels in the area and most of our guests return time after time.  So come and visit us for a short break and relax by the pool,  lazing around on the sun beds or in the cabana. 


Hotel with a pool in Maha Sarakham

We are one of the very few hotels that have a beautiful private 8 x 4.5 metre swimming pool. There are 3  luxury bungalows that face the pool and 2 double rooms, one facing the pool and the other has it’s own small terrace and overlooks the pool. All have easy access to the cabana, BBQ and gardens. Surrounded by coconut and other palm trees to give the pool a natural shade from the hot sun.

Kayaking in Thailand

 We are perfectly located for Kayaking on the Nong Bua Lake and Kayaking Thailand’s rivers and many lakes between Khon Kaen and Roi et. We are also near the River Chi which stretches from the North of Thailand (over 1000 KM’s) on the Laos border through Thailand and Cambodia to Vietnam.

Opposite Coconut Palms is the huge Nong Bua Lake which is a Nature Reserve and area of natural beauty. This lake is perfect for a Kayaking Holiday in Thailand. Portable Kayaks are now so easy to carry in a backpack and only weigh about 15 kgs.

Hotel with a pool in Maha Sarakham

Coconut Palms is a hotel with swimming pool in Mahasarakham on the main road to from Kalasin or Khon Kaen and is directly opposite the big public lake also known as the Nong Bua Reservoir in Kantarawhichai. If coming by car or motorbike you can park on the premises or in the big car park over the road by the water.

The sunsets are amazing in the evening and watching the sky go red and the sun setting in the distance is a sight not to be missed at any cost. Then you can sit by the pool in the cabana or on the sunbeds and relax the evening away with a few drinks (available from reception) or why not use the BBQ facilities by the swimming pool and have yourself a nice BBQ of chicken, pork and other Thai delicacies.  

Day times around Nong Bua lake

During the daytime the Nong Bua public lake and park is open for anyone to wander around and explore. The government are doing a big cleaning up of the lake and people like to picnic around the banks or the water or just stroll around watching the nature. Bird watchers in Thailand have an amazing time with all the different kinds of birds. Some people bring their girlfriend on a motorcycle or family in a car and just picnic around the scenic areas.

Just around the corner behind the big Wat temple is the local market. This is where we stroll over to most evenings to buy fresh fruit and vegetables. There are also many take away foods available. Fried chicken, Papaya Pop Pop  is the Thai favourite, BBQ fish on a stick, BBQ pork… There is so much food to choose from it makes no sense to stand in the kitchen cooking when you can just pop to the market and come back with so many delicious treats for the whole family.

 Maha Sarakham city centre

The city centre just a short drive from Coconut Palms is the new Sermthai Complex. Located in the Mahasarakham city centre,where you can shop till your heart’s content. They have a modern Ciniplex cinema with luxury chairs and a food court on the top floor. A huge Lotus Tesco supermarket is on the ground floor along with many clothes and other shops. Outside is a huge car park where there are often exhibitions for cars, motorbikes and other interesting shows.

A new Mc Donalds in Maha Sarakam has just been built and is now be open for business. Inside the Sermthai complex are many big restaurants like the Black CanyonSweeneysDunkin DonutsKFC, The Pizza Company. You will really be spoil for choice and you must try the Thai Hot Pot. They bring you all kinds of fish, squid, octopus and other strange things. You have this big hot cooking thing like a BBQ in the middle of the table and everyone cooks their food on it.

Truly an amazing experience to say the least and something you must experience if in Thailand for a holiday or business. If you want a Hotel with a pool in Maha Sarakham and really nice place to stay. We have beautiful bungalows or double rooms with a terrace around an intimate swimming pool. Interested? Then then head over to Coconut Palms

There are only a few other hotels with pools in this area and we were surprised to hear from recent guests that the Taksila Hotel‘s pool was closed for over 6 weeks due to green algae… the Orchid Resort and Relax‘s pool was dirty and cloudy… and the S-Tawan hotel was out of service.

We understand why and keeping a swimming pool clean in Maha Sarakam or anywhere in Thailand… is a bloody mission… to say the least… it has to be swept and sucked everyday… Chemicals required every 2 – 3 weeks to keep it clean… There are so many reasons… Air pollution and the fact that every-time it rains,… Green algae forms in the pool… Fires are constantly sending Ash into the air… It is very expensive to keep a pool clean in Thailand…
