We have stayed many times at this lovely resort on the river bank, and each time we have been thoroughly impressed with the service, the location and the atmosphere of the place. The rooms are comfortable and there is intermittent wifi, and several English T.V. channels, the shower was artistic and powerful, and the beds were very comfortable. There was... More

We only had one night here, but would have loved a few more. The hotel is super cozy, placed by a river. It is divided into many bungalows with a few rooms in each. The room is nice and clean for a jungle hotel, and we were happy. The pool area was small but enough (not many guest while we... More

We stayed only one night w. a small tour group. The owner took time to talk with us about the history of the hotel and about their charitable works with the Hill Tribes' children's education, which is so wonderful. We weren't able to take advantage of the offered activities that seemed so fun. The gardens are lovely, And the resort... More

We stayed here as family of four in a deluxe suite and it says that everything that pretty much as soon as we arrived we asked to stay an extra night, and we would have stayed longer if we hadn't been booked in elsewhere. The rooms were lovely and full of really thoughtful touches such as the lamp and matches... More

We recently returned from a seven-night stay at this one-of-kind place. As an expat family living in a large, crowded, and dusty city, we were looking for a vacation that would give us a real change of pace, but still have enough activity for our children (4 and 7 years old.) We decided early on to go for northern Thailand,... More

What a beautiful place to just 'be' -- wonderful gardens, fantastic food, very friendly and attentive staff, lovely comfortable accommodation -- and on top of all, the inspirational educational programme set up by the owners, to support the local community and broaden the horizons of hundreds of students from all over the world. A truly magical place!

Lovely stay. Beautiful gardens. Amazing riverside view. We did the half day bike tour with Sean which was wonderful. Got to cycle through the rice fields and gain some good local knowledge. The couple who run it are fantastic.

This property was the vision of a couple from England and they executed it so well.
