We had very high expectations with our 3 night trip planned up in the Akha Hills. We had done a similar Eco-Tour Stay in the local villages in Mexico and had loved it! This place must have started out with great ideas and great expectations and maybe a few years ago was more of an authentic experience as once upon... More

I think this place was started with good intentions but something is not quite right. Even though my review is not the greatest I would like to go back to volonteer in the school and maybe make some suggestions to make the place somewhere you want to go back to ! A lot of potential but Maybe the owner has... More

We decided to go spend a night up in the Akha Hill House. The free pick up and drop off are great. Once up there we discovered that accommodation is very very basic for the cheapest rooms (4 walls but open to the roof) and just ok for the "upgraded ones". Food is just ok, but nothing special. We barely... More

we booked a package which included transfers, accommodation, meals and trekking. It took me 1 month to secure a booking due to poor communication. After reading the reviews I was quite hesitant but booked anyway. The rooms are basic which is fine, but need maintenance. The bathroom was not cleaned properly and there where some creepy crawlies. The mattress was... More

Our trek included one night in the Akha Hill House and so this review is 2 parts Firstly, the trek itself was fantastic. Literally one of the highlights of my SE Asia trip. So if you're going to trek in Thailand, that would be my suggestion do it through them. The accommodation in Akha Hill on the first night was... More

the staff were not very friendly, dogs were scared of the staff and hiding under customers chairs, our luggage didnt turn up until 8pm leaving us cold and wet from our trek in the rain. The rooms and facilities were tired, it seemed as though no maintenance work is carried out and the staff arent interested in making it a... More

The individuals that we booked with were great and friendly. The village itself is beautiful. The first night we spent in the bungalow we saw two huge spiders in the restroom and two cockroaches in the room. It is nice they give you a mosquito net to sleep in, but we still were shocked at the size of the spider... More
