We stayed 11 nights at COTU and were very pleased with the experience. It proved to be a handy gateway to the national parks, interesting nearby sights and of course, the wonderful, fast-paced city of Chiang Mai. Our cottage, one of three, while not 21st century stylish, was comfortable and had everything needed for a long or short stay. The... More

This is a wonderful place away from the madness that can be Chiang Mia. Its clean, friendly and comfortable. The swimming pool and garden is a wonderful relaxing place to spend your time. My only gripe would be that the food was below what you would expect from a place of this standard. Yes the prices are reasonable but so... More

The Centre of the Universe is a wonderfully relaxing place to stay away from the madding crowds but easy to get to the tourist attractions. It was a great place to wind down after travelling for 5 weeks. Philip is very friendly and helpful and arranged many excursions for us including a very productive birding day with Uthai.

This was one of our best experiences in Thailand. I am not a swimmer but my wife is and she feel in love with the huge saltwater pool. There are also three cabins that are surrounded by beautiful grounds. The adjoining property is also wooded giving the place a relaxed and isolated feeling. The cabins are fully equipped and have...

Many thanks for your feedback which has been shared with all the resort staff at our monthly staff meeting. The staff are genuinely interested when we share customer reviews on TripAdvisor. They are genuinely motivated when the team is praised for its customer service, but they are equally concerned about how to overcome problems if the team falls short of... More

An amazing pool in a tranquil setting. Can be difficult to find but we'll worth it. The staff are very helpful and pleasant and the whole place has a relaxed vibe. The nearby village is interesting and worth investigating from the market to the wat.

We have stayed here on several occasions and will do so again without hesitation. The pool and restaurant facilities are excellent and the staff are very helpful and friendly. Staying here you get the best of both worlds - near enough to the city for the markets and night life, yet set in beautiful, tranquil gardens with a stunning mountain... More

Thank you very much for your very positive review! Repeat business is very important to us, as is word-of-mouth, and TripAdvisor referrals. Our success is down to the loyalty and customer service orientation of our staff.

We had a delayed honeymoon at this beautiful resort. It's in a great location, very peaceful and with views of the mountains. The owner and staff are very helpful and offer a good selection of food and drinks - their smoothies are incredible! We plan to visit again as Chiang Mai has a lot to offer and can't wait to... More

The bungalows at this mini resort are spacious in quiet and peaceful garden surroundings. A 50m salt water swimming pool is available to guests free of charge as is a small book and DVD library. Staff will bring your food and drinks to you at the poolside. The owner, Philip, was really helpful and kind. He arranged a fantastic birding... More

Towels for hire, comfortable sun loungers and umbrella,s and friendly staff who come to the pool to offer food and drink. Bliss!

Fancied a day by the pool so found this one on Google/Tripadvisor etc. As other reviewers have mentioned no drivers seem to know where it is, in spite of showing them the map from the hotel website. In our experience tuk tuk drivers are never interested in anything more than a few km anyway, and if it requires the slightest... More
