Loved the art that is scattered throughout the grounds. Appreciated the fresh breakfast served every morning. Ian and Pop were as helpful as can be arranging taxis when needed, and even providing rides around with them personally when possible. Great for a quiet getaway outside the city.

Spent a weekend at this elegant, quiet, 5 individual cottage resort. It is 40 minutes from the airport, and difficult to find after dark. But, once you settle in, you are in for a treat. The design of Mae Nai is beautiful. Small touches of elegance are everywhere-sculpture, clay pots, superb landscaping-wonderful. The cottage we stayed in, Frangipani, was spacious... More

When you live such a superlative experience, it's hard to know where to start...Mae Nai Gardens is a dazzling demonstration of what a true labour of love can yield. It's also transcended by the wonderful hosts that are Ian and Pop. These are true beautiful spirits that care to share, and we feel privileged to have been their guests in... More

The attention to detail at Mae Nai Gardens sets it apart from the rest. Everywhere you look there's an interesting or beautiful piece of art, handicraft or sculpture. Ian couldn't have been more welcoming and we had an interesting chat with him over breakfast (which was delicious). The attention to detail continues even at breakfast with eggs cooked to perfection... More

Ian and Pop are fantastic, attentive and interesting hosts, without being overbearing. The property is beautifully landscaped, dotted with artwork and interesting detail. A true labor of love. Our stay was incredibly relaxing in the beautiful retreat that is Mae Nai Gardens. We'll be back!

After a lot of R&D and looking at different places we decided to settle for Mae Nai Gardens, we were looking for a serviced apartment as we had children and wanted access to a kitchen, we finally booked this place. We had pre-arranged for an airport pick up that was arranged by our host Ian for a cost of THB... More

Mae Nai Gardens is a truly brilliant place located close enough to Mae Rim to be convenient, but far enough away to feel wonderfully secluded. Pop and Ian are super hosts, the perfect mix of laid-back and superbly efficient. We stayed in the Jasmine suite, which was in the main house and comprised of some lovely sculptures/artefacts, a comfy bed... More

We stayed at a two-person bungalow by a fish pond and absolutely enjoyed our time at Mae Nai Gardens. The bungalows in the area are so well placed that you almost have no idea that there are other guests in the hotel. It was simply divine to rest in the outdoor veranda and look colorful fish swimming in the pool.... More

The place is located 30 min by car outside of Chiang Mai in a quiet neighborhood away of the pollution and noise. The property is big and the villas are away from each other so you have privacy.

I have been traveling to Chiangmai for 10years but so blessed to find Mae Nai Gardens this time! I really don't want this place to get too busy and spoil their love and peace but I can't stop sharing my experiences with them.
