I spent 4 nights at Suan Bua as part of a conference. The grounds are beautiful with water, flowers, and buildings well laid out. Conference food was consistently tasty and plentiful, a mix of Thai and western. My room was spacious, quiet and comfortable, not luxurious. Internet was a bit weak even in lobby. The surrounding countryside is hilly, wooded.... More

Our group of 25 had a great stay. The grounds are beautiful (mostly), with lots of places to walk and a peaceful atmosphere. The service is fine - not a lot of English, but there's usually someone around to make your needs understood. Breakfast wasn't much, but we had a wide variety of excellent food at our lunches and dinners... More

Located at the 22 kilometer marker, the resort is very beautiful, well managed, and well maintained. It is very peaceful located in the Samoeng mountains. Staff are very nice. Rooms are big, nice and clean. Breakfast buffet was average but nice. Should have your own transportation as it is a bit far. New Year's Eve party outside with huge Thai/international... More

Suan Bua is up a mountain and outside Chiang Mai. It is in a lovely setting, nice to take a walk around the grounds. The swimming pool is to be closed as it needs some urgent repair. The meals were good, although i think they have cut down on their buffet breakfasts. Suan bua is popular with our organization. It... More

A little away from Chian May this hotel in the middle of a beautiful park is a haven of peace. More are located just in the mountains it is there a little less stuffy than in the city. Furthermore the rooms are very spacious and furnished in true Thai style.

We booked this country side hotel without understanding how far from Chiang Mai it was located. The taxi charged 900 B for the trip. Beautiful and well maintained garden, large room was ok but the huge hotel was empty! Only one additional guest. The "SPA" looked like not been used in 25 years. Next day suddenly the place was filled... More

After being in Chiang Mai for years, many in our organization agree that our time at the Suan Bua was impressive! We've all been to dozens of meetings, buffets, and overnight lodging situations, and probably have never had such an overall good value/experience than at the Suan Bua. Khun (Mr.) Pracha has been an excellent liaison. He and his staff... More

This place has it all! Beautiful gardens, happy staff, excellent food, at a fantastic price! We were so amazed at the generosity of the manager who lowered our costs even after we had been there for a week. He also went out of his way to be accommodating to our every need. At the end he and his staff setup... More

This has been the third time I have been to Suan Bua Hotel & Resort, attending conferences there. Each time the conference venue is there, I sigh: not again! When entering the resort, the first impression actually is positive. The large gardens are well planned and well maintained. Not so the rooms. Every room I have slept in had something... More

Great place for a conference where you can spend lots of time with your group. The place if fairly old. The reception desk is THE most unorganized desk I've ever seen. Not professional. We were put in the 3rd floor of an old building where the stairs were uneven. The room was decent and the bed good but after one... More
