Our stay at Tonnam Homestay was definitely one of the highlights of my Thailand trip. The owners, Cecil and Yul, take great time and care making sure all of their guests have a great stay. The place itself was beautifully situated just off the river. The grounds were very well kept and the rooms were cleaned daily. The breakfast was... More

I fell in love. In love with Tonnam, it's surroundings and more importantly, the people. Normally I am a solo traveller to Chiang Mai~but this time I had my 70yr old mother,Coral and my 22yr old son, Jaymes, whom has Autism-for their first visit to Thailand. I wanted somewhere where they would get a true authentic Thai experience- yet with... More

Tonnam Homestay is the way to go if you plan on visiting Chiang Mai. In Thailand, you definitely want the scoop from a local--Yul (our host) will give you insight on what Chiang Mai is all about! From activities such as elephant riding, kayaking, transportation, markets, etc. Tonnam Homestay is set up like a hotel--laundry service, housekeepers, breakfast/lunch/dinner, pool, etc.... More

The owner of the resort lives on the resort with his French wife. He was brought up on the grounds where is now the resort. The owners give you a warm family like feeling here. Resort is very nice, well maintained and has a small but big enough salt water pool looking out on Chiang Mai's river. Restaurant has no... More

Upon our arrival at Tonnam Homestay a week ago Cecile announced, in her beautiful French accent 'Ok, you are home!' Little did we realise at the time how right she was. Yul and Cecile are a French/Thai couple who also speak perfect English and have set up Tonnam home stay in such a way that they make you feel immediately... More

This sign was welcoming us at Tonnam Homestay on our way to our room. Yul's and Cecile's excellent homestay definitely fully deserves the word HOME which you will regret having to leave at some point. At Tonnam you will find a perfect mix of French elegance with Thai hospitality, of professionalism and relaxedness & flexibility. The homestay is spacious, with... More

这是我住过的最好的民宿。就在宾江边。兰纳建筑风格的房子,已经有很长的历史了。有泳池。每个房间都各有特色,而且房外都有休憩和望江的景色或者看着园子的景色。我们住的是江边一间有着室外浴缸的美妙的房间。 园子里有各种植物和花卉。美不胜收。那么多的花花草草,竟然没有什么蚊子。其他飞虫,昆虫还是不少。 Cecile 和 Yul 以及他们的staff 很亲切,早餐很好,还有瘦肉粥,真是惊喜。 唯一的不方便是距离老城有点距离,打车需要150泰铢。如果自己租车或者摩托车就比较好。 That is the best homestay I've ever lived. Lanna style house with long history. There is pool. Every room is special with nice view or either river or garden. We spent 3 nights in it。 Cecile and Yul and all the staff are very nice. The breakfast were great. That was wonderful... More

Cecile and Yul are lovely and we had an incredibly relaxing stay at Tonnam. Our room was delightful (and clean!) and the property in general is very charming--a quiet gem just outside the city along the river. We took kayaks out and were pleased with how calm the river was (despite a storm). Breakfast the following morning was great! Would... More

We recently spent a week at Tonnam Homestay in Chiang Mai, and we were so well treated that it was hard to leave! We are a family of 5 with teen and adult children and we spent our time there either poolside on the terrace overlooking the river, or in the open air dining area playing cards and chatting. Meals...
