We stayed for several days in fern paradise in August 2014 and we loved every minute of our stay. The staff are incredibly friendly and very honest - we accidentally left a large some of money and credit cards in our room and even though our room was thoroughly cleaned while we were out not a penny was missing.

We stayed here in August 2014. Although a little way out of the central town this little resort is indeed paradise. With individual huts this unique resort will bring a little bit of magic to your stay. Enveloped in the jungle, being able to lie in bed with the sounds of crickets and birds truly made our stay excellent. The... More

I went there on July 2013 spending some holidays with my family visiting me in Thailand. We were looking for a place where relax and don't hear city noises. Also to enjoy about the nature in Chiang Mai. I can say this place is unique. The owner has a collection of ferns (more than 400 species) around hundreds and hundreds... More

My husband and I spend about 10 days at Fern Paradise in January. This is truly a paradise. The cottages are restored rice huts and they are incorporated in trees so you feel like you are in a tree house. Very rustic but there is a wonderful charm to being here. This is a family owned establishment and the family... More

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
