Gran Monte Vineyard
The award-winning Gran Monte Vineyard Estate is a favoured place to stay for golfers who are using the D Varee Charnvee Golf Resort, near Khao Yai National Park. This beautiful 36-acre tropical vineyard, nestled in Asoke Valley, churns out such wines as cabernet sauvignon and semillon and is a leisurely 45-minute drive from the recently built golf course.
GranMonte Guest House offers a quiet stay amid foothills a short drive from the Khao Yai National Park entrance. Stunning, delicately furnished balconied rooms with flat-screen TV and complimentary Wi-fi provide fine vineyard views, while vineyard tours are free. In addition, there’s also fine dining and a cellar door here.
The D Varee Charnvee Golf Resort itself is an 18-hole, par-72 course designed by Bob McFarland. The horseshoe-shaped, wide open course appeals to most levels, from advanced to higher handicap players, with its sweeping fairways and tree-lined greens.
D Varee Charnvee also provides accommodation, with dozens of rooms and villas, and is good for couples and families. There is also a well-equipped clubhouse on site, together with a giant freeform swimming pool, great dining and even a horse ranch. Alternative activities here include hiking and biking on the Khao Yai National Park forest trails.
