My trip to Thailand was shorter than desired and more planned out than I was used to. Karen Hill Tribe Lodge was booked not knowing what to expect. After my first couple days in Thailand all the places I was staying were exactly as explained to me by friends and fellow travelers. Karen Hills was the surprise I was waiting... More

Our short stay at the Lodge during the low season was one of the highlights of our road trip around northern Thailand. Though well-signposted, the last 9km is on unmade roads and you definitely need a 4x4, particularly in the rainy season. The drive there was very much part of the experience and, when we arrived, we were in the... More

If you are willing to take the time to get here, your efforts will be rewarded. It's a long drive from the Chiang Mai airport on a bouncy dirt road. As we drove and drove and drove...we wondered if this was worth it. And then we arrived. We rode to the lodge on Son Mai, our elephant. We were a... More

If you want to stay in an all natural environment in a beautiful place far off the usual tourist spots this is the place to be. The resort is all natural, made of bamboo and wood and beautifully designed with a great veranda facing the jungle. In clear and fresh winter nights (while it can also get cold!) you can... More

Super friendly and accomodating staff in a unique location. The location is outstanding as the lodge is situated in a small tranquil Karen village. The food and service were great which added to the atmosphere. Had a great chat with staff and villagers around a campfire in the evening. Heard gibbons in the trees in the early morning. Rooms are... More

We wanted to travel deep into the northern hills of Thailand and away from the beaten track - this was the place which brought us as closely as possible to a trecking experience. we were the only guests at the lodge which meant we had the entire place to ourselves. what should have been shared bathrooms and toilets became private...

We stayed at the Karen Hill Tribe Lodge over New Year. We had booked a four day / three night tour only intending to stay at the Lodge for just one night. If you are looking for a rustic, rural retreat and a genuine hill-tribe experience away from the hustle and bustle of Chiang Mai.....then this is the place for... More

Our experience with Karen Hill Tribe Lodge was simply amazing! The drive to the lodge itself was quite the adventure, one we will smile about for years to come. The booking agent was prompt in answering my emails. On the morning we were picked up by our guide and two drivers, who remained with us for the duration of our... More
