Nothing but excellent, the Fern Paradise, besides the green ferns, palms and litchi and mango trees themselves that turn the whole area into a luxurious botanic garden, besides the crickets, cicadas and birds sounds and tweets all around that cuddle you during day and night (really I cant believe that somebody complained about the STREET noise..that's ridiculous, the sounds cover...

On our transfer from railway station to the hotel we could not expect how beautiful this hidden place will be (you cannot see anything from the road). We entered a peaceful area with lots of farns and beautiful huts. We have to accept that you can hear some noise from the road. The huts are luxurious and very clean. Due... More

Fern Paradise is a beautiful, romantic, peaceful, perfect holiday getaway location. The food was delicious and the complimentary breakfast was the best to wake up to. The rooms are very clean and tidy, and the bed is quite comfortable. Om & Rin were amazing hosts; not only did they provide us with everything we needed (bus spray, bath amenities, tourist... More

If you're looking for the best showers in Chiang Mai or no neighbours, look elsewhere. If, however, you appreciate being surrounded by trees, ferns, plants and wildlife whilst staying somewhere that is nothing like a typical hotel, then you'll love it. The 9 villas are well laid out and both the standard and deluxe types have their advantages. I chose... More

The Fern Paradise is about 5 miles outside of Chiang Mai. The grounds are beautifully maintained and the staff, especially Om & Rin, were friendly and helpful with knowledge of things to see and do. Would highly recommend to anyone seeking a nature retreat.

I really wish I could write a glowing review about this place because there are so many great things about it. Unfortunately the rapid growth of Chiang Mai is slowly but surely ruining the ambience of what probably was once a peaceful hideaway. As others have reported this is a family-owned resort. The property has been in the family for... More

Not only is this a place to rest your head, it is a sweet experience. The loving care that is given to every inch of the property and the kind and helpful owners make it feel like a home. The downside is that it is about a 20 minute ride to the center of the old town of Chiang Mai.... More

We absolutely loved staying at Fern Paradise, and missed it as we traveled around Thailand with our 2 small children. Fern Paradise is situated about 20 mins by local bus outside chaotic Chiang Mai.(hail the green bus outside on the road, 10 baht pp-25p). Om and his family have created an oasis within the madness. Once you come in, you... More

The old villas are very cosy and the interior is designed with many authentic details. The owner family is incredibly friendly. The garden is just overwhelming for an european. The restaurant is situated close to a small river and serves very good local food. We never had breakfast in such a wonderful tropical surrounding before. The only negative fact you... More
