Nice hotel along the Maekok river. 1 or 2 floor bungalow in an amazing garden. Rooms are simple but nice, with terrasse or balcony on the garden. Nice service, as usual in Thailand. Small pool, though lacking sunchairs. Good food. Correct but quite untidy.

We recently stayed here during a 2 week holiday in Thailand and Laos and I have to say this resort was one of the highlights of the holiday. Bryan and his team made us feel very welcome and the resort was wonderful. Our room was great and had a beautiful verandah and garden leading down to a small stream. If... More

The latest of several visits to this resort, we had a brilliant stay and look forward to the next one. Bryan and the staff couldn't have been more helpful and the gardens of the new resort are magnificent - we were shown the latest hydroponics project for growing their own salad veg. A highlight was an evening bike ride round... More

Thanks very much indeed for taking time to write this review. It was great to see you here again, and of course we are delighted that it is an intention to return. Your comments about the food were particularly pleasing for as I think I told you, our kitchen staff have never been formally trained. They were, of course, thrilled... More

Our group stayed here on a driving trip to explore the north of Thailand and Burma. Over the course of our 3 week journey we stayed at many different places. MRV was our little treat.

Really nice hotel with beautifil gardens and a great view for the river. Since it was our honeymoon, we got some special decoration on our arrival! Good room service, you can order a massage in the room. We also ordered dinner in room and it was really nice.

We had the pleasure of staying at Maekok River Village Resort (MRVR) for a week in early May. From the moment we arrived we were well looked after by our host, Bryan and his staff. We stayed in a Garden Villa which I would describe as "rustic" luxury, the rooms were very clean and spacious. Our main reason for visiting... More

Great location for visiting this beautiful part of unspoilt Thailand. The hotel is nicely set out with the rooms surrounded by a fantastic garden. We found the breakfasts were excellent , but preferred other local restaurants for dinner. We had our own transport so could easily visit the various attractions such as Wat Thaton, the hot springs at Fang and... More

When we arrived at MRVR after a full day of traveling to get from the US to Thailand it was nice to have a little piece of serenity.
