Located on the Kok River the resort is a botanical wonderland. Flowering shrubs, tree and flowers abound. There are walking paths that wend their way through the resort. Flowery fragrance follows as you travel around the resort. The garden rooms are well appointed with little specialties such a fruit platter on arrival, cookies and free bottled water makes the stay... More

We enjoyed a very nice night in Maekok River Village Resort. We had a beautiful room in a villa, opening on a lawn and pond. The swimming pool is small but very nice, and the large garden by the river is a good place to stroll. It's worth going to breakfast early for sunrise in the open restaurant. Wifi is... More

I have traveled in 24 countries and stayed in the full gambit of resorts..from 5 star luxury in Cape South Africa to rough and tumble conditions trekking in Nepal.

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 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.
