We had a amazing stay at the zensala! The resort and the rooms are so beautiful and tastefully decorated! We later found out that the owner is an architect! That explains why! We like every piece of furniture and the deco in the room. And the bathroom!!!!! Modern designer style. The breakfast is to die for. They are made to... More

it's really quiet there, with a riverside view! Small but unique. friendly receptionist and manager. The breakfast is really nice. 離古城有點距離 大概坐雙條約70-100不等 但很適合放鬆~ 直接可以看到賓河, 早餐非常的精緻 點餐式buffet 現點現做, 連果汁都是瓶裝 百分百!

We had four great nights in a mini villa. Totally private and beautifully appointed. The restaurants at the resort offered great value and choice. The staff were all great, helpful and courteous and superbly led by Katie. Although a little out of town taxis, tuktuks and red buses were plentiful and cheap around 150 baht so not a problem. If...

Although this resort is just about 10 mins away from the old city area, but it feels as relax as you are staying at the country side. The staffs are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is delicious and provide with many choices. Highly recommend!!

There is so much to say about this hidden gem, but I truly have no idea where to start. So perhaps I should start first with thanking to Khun Katie (at least that's what I saw on the name tag) and her staff including Ying and the security guards. Zensala as noted by many of the reviewers is not near... More

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The resort is out of town, but there is a daily shuttlebus to the old city and the staff was very helpful in arranging transportation. The breakfast buffet was not outstanding but okay. The resort is beautiful, clean and very tranquil. Great environment to escape the busy town.

Me and my wife (we are Thais) stayed at the Villa for 2 nights. This hotel is very nice and quiet, a perfect getaway for someone who wants to be with nature but not too far from all the actions and conveniences. It's about 10 min short drive to where everything is in the center of Chian Mai, it's better... More
