I went to this place with my 82 years old Mom on the mother' s day. Feel impressive with the nature, my room is just in the front of a pond. A panorama view from the room is amazing. I discover later on, this resort also provides a long term rest and care for the elder worldwide. The breakfast is... More

Sadly trip adviser map very far from real location but staff managed to guide us. (Head to elephant poopoo paper, keep going past signs for four seasons then it a few km on right - well signposted) All rooms seem to be a good size and are comfortably equipped. This is of the higher end of "family run" hotels in... More

a nice place to get out of the city and only 5-10 minutes drive to the mae rim attractions (quads/waterfalls/botanic gardens/tiger place etc)...nothing in walking distance so bring either a car/scooter, or be prepared to entertain yourselves in the resort. lakeside room was nice, but for the price nothing special. pool was nice enough, but not big enough for lengths...

Thank you for the review. We were very quiet during the political troubles in Thailand and with low numbers we cannot really create atmosphere in the restaurant; an empty restaurant is always an empty restaurant. I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay and the Lakeside rooms More

This hotel is located about 30 minutes from Chaing Mai so it means you have to depend on the hotel for all meals, etc. The rooms are scattered around a small lake in what seems to be an old banana plantation so very picturesque, and the rooms are comfortable, clean and well equipped but the hot water system let them...

This hotel with its kind and gentle staff gave us a warm welcome from the start to the end of our week. We felt able to relax in this calm serene hilltop garden hotel with its flowers and shady banana tamarind and teak trees, to read, to swim, simply to shift down gears. We sampled delicious Thai food made from... More

The lodge is situated amongst a scenic garden setting with a lake, swimming pool, restaurant and so forth. The bungalows were well kitted and spacious - there was even a DVD player, which was nice since most lodges don't provide these. You need a car when you stay here because the lodge is not walking distance from anything, but our... More

The grounds and setting of this resort are really pretty and as they look on the website. Our daughter loved the free pedal boat on the small lake.

This place is not in walking distance of anywhere! When the bicycles are all children's sizes and there is only 1 scooter available for the entire place, you can get a bit stuck.

I am confused regarding the complimentary bicycles, having just read a review complaining that there were no children's sizes your review says they are all children's sizes. In fact the first review was correct they are all adult sizes but for larger adults we need to raise the seats. We only have one motorbike to rent and usually that is... More
