If you want to stay in a nice quite place and not in the centre of Chiang Mai, Away will be a very good choice. We stayed there for 3 nights in a large family room with 2 separate bedrooms and both of them had there own bathroom. It's located nearby the Waterfall Mae Sa and the Kayang Karen Longneck... More

I stayed here with a group. Everything was well done. The villas are large with an enormous bathroom. Everything is handy. All the Mae Rim Tourist attractions are close by within a 10 min drive. - Tigers, elephants, snakes etc 2 very nice pools, and the food buffet was fine but not above average. No tea and coffee for lunch... More

The good things: - Idilic setting and very nice rooms. - Very quite, lots of birds, butterflies, cicadas so it feels like you are away from the city. - Bar/restaurant staff were fantastic as were housekeeping. - Nice pool area and small lake were very picturesque. - Hot water issue was fixed immediately by their very efficient engineering person.

I am pleased that you enjoyed the resort but disappointed that you had issues with transportation to the city and laundry. We operate a nightly return trip to the city for 300 Baht per person and charge 650 Baht for a one way journey at other times which is the same as most taxi prices. Normally we will happily call...

Away Suansawan cuts a glorious profile, with serenity the order of the day. Being far from the centre of Chiang Mai, it does limit your choices food wise, and the food served on site is generally about 40-50% above the going rate in those central areas. That said, you get what you pay for; Beautifully air conditioned rooms 2 swimming... More

Thank you so much for your review. I am very pleased that you enjoyed your stay.

This is our second time at this resort and we enjoyed it even more this time. The surroundings is gorgeous, peaceful and inviting. Since the owner has small kids, the resort has a great playground and pool for kids. It is also the safest one that we've seen here in Thailand (comes with a guard rail). We also enjoyed our...

Thank you for your review. It is great that you find the resort 'family friendly' because we try to make it that way. I will investigate why you had no hot water at night, it sounds very strange. Your visit was in the middle of a major upgrade to our Wi-Fi system which we hope will be complete this week... More

We really love this place. Hotel staff has good service mind and give us the best services. Rooms are very nice and clean. The beds are comfortable, there's a spare blanket also. Fitness equipment and sauna room are in good condition to be used. Two swimming pools available. Really touch the nature, good for rest and relax.

I visited my brother and family in Chiang Mai last month and for a change of scene they booked us in for a night here which I really enjoyed. The grounds are beautiful and the chalets are better built than some Australian homes. Two good swimming pools which we enjoyed using. We didn't have dinner in the restaurant, choosing to... More

Thank you so much for your wonderful review.I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Yes, we are also a care centre but as you say this does not affect the hotel (except there are nursing staff available) and our more elderly guests love having the hotel guests around.

I booked two nights of Deluxe Suite for escaping the busy & noisy city. It was great, exactly gave us what we wanted - quiet, far from the busy area, just relax! The bonus is the restaurant open all day (from 6:30 until 10pm)., as we really just wanted to have a good rest and do nothing. So we don't... More
