We stayed here for two nights during a 9 day visit to Thailand which included Bangkok, Chaing Rai, ThaTon and Chaing Mai. This was our favorite hotel of all of them. Soooo peaceful, my son said it reminded him of the Shire in the Hobbit. The staff were terrific and the Thai Massage was wonderful. Our second day we did... More

One of the many highlights of our trip to Thailand was a wonderful lunch at this absolutely stunning resort situated along a beautiful river. It was a buffet with a terrific selection of Thai foods that were all delicious. But sitting there looking out over fields, gardens and the river was just so incredibly breathtaking and peaceful.

Thank you Bryan and Rosie for a wonderful stay at your resort. You and your staff were all very friendly and helpful as this was a last minute trip for me. I had a relaxing time walking around your beautiful garden and got to eat some delicious Thai and Burmese food. My room was very clean and well maintained.

I am racking my brains to think of something that I can find fault with during our stay at the MRVR, and am drawing a blank.

We had planned to stay in Chiang Mai over Chinese New Year but stumbled over some reviews of Maekok river resort and rebooked our stay to go up to Thaton instead. What a great choice!!

We stayed at Maekok River for three nights in February. Bryan was very helpful before and during our time there and ensured that we had a really good visit.

idyllic location, Bryan and his staff delightful, (certainly not pompous, very user friendly!) and delicious food. Trips on the river great fun, quite an art avoiding all the detritus floating around by our boatman! All in all a relaxing and enjoyable stay. Kentish Lass

The location has great views of the Maekok river valley and the rooms were small but well appointed. Sound travels in the rooms as the doors to the decks slide with gaps.
