The Intercontinental Khao Yai Swan Lake Resort is a lakeside destination resort that is part of the mixed-use Swan Lake Project in the UNESCO-protected Khao Yai National Park. The 61-key resort is the designed by award-winning architect Bill Bensley on the theme of railway heritage, with nostalgic suites created from vintage railway cars. The resort also features a Club Lounge, Resort Centre, pool, gym, kids' club, wedding chapel, as well as a fun train-inspired spa. Only two-and-a-half hours from Bangkok by car (or soon even quicker by rail, befitting the resort's theme), this nature-centric property provides a cool respite from the capital, with clear air, rich fauna and flora (including Thailand's elusive wild elephants), and the relaxation of the ultimate lakeside getaway.
