quite a jewel in the far north. Really beautiful and amazing garden! Very good rooms, so many nice details. Very quiet atmosphere. really good restaurant, friendly staff, nice pool. The only thing which maybe is not perfect is the distance to thaton village. its too far too walk, so a bicycle or motorbike is needed (but thaton village is merely... More

Thanks for taking the time to review us. And thanks also for the very positive comments you made about the resort. It is good to know that when we (owner-managers) are away, our staff still take pride in making sure that our guests are well looked after!!!! It is a pity that the village is not better looked after. It... More

We stayed here as part of our five day Northern Thailand trip. Thaton is way up at the Myanmar border and it's a real effort to get here. Most visitors are trekking or backpacking and there are few choices for luxury accommodations. This lovely resort, set at riverside, offers a pretty and comfortable spot after a long day of rainy...

Many thanks for writing about us in such terms. It is true that we are really the only 'luxury' resort for many, many miles around which is one of the reasons why we chose to develop here, as there were no alternatives for higher budget travellers. As such, and as you experienced, we can offer a lovely place for guests... More

Very professionel Resort in the North of Thailand. Surprisingly good. Located in a fantastic landscape. People very friendly - high service Level. Bungalows nice but not overwhelming. We didn't like the carpets on the floor and also the very creative shower with pebbles on the floor didn't leave the Impression of beeing very clean. Beside this the Resort is worth... More

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.

Thanks for this review and am pleased that you were happy with almost everything. The gardens are lovely and continue to mature and it is good to read that you were also happy with the service and food. I am not sure what you meant about the sunchairs as there are 10 around the pool. Also I wonder what you... More

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.
