And we enjoyed them all... Ian and Jim's incomparable hospitality and generosity, a stunning lake view from a shaded balcony, home cooked massaman curry and fluffy fruit pancakes, kayaking after an excellent storm, a yellow bittern and the black naped monarch in its nest, the cool pool and an immaculate garden, those fabulous old British bikes and a great sense...

My husband and I spent 4 wonderful days at Viang. So glad we opted to not stay at the MUCH pricier and large resorts In the area. Ian and Vasanna are AMAZING hosts - so accommodating and helpful.

Lovely resort with the owners very welcoming and helpful. Clearly enjoy helping the visitor to get the most out of their stay. The accommodation was clean with good facilities and the food was excellent. The wifi was a little slow but adequate for checking emails. Overall an excellent stay. Thank you.

Each time we stay at Viang Yonok we are sad to leave and look forward to returning. The welcome is great, the location, for a birdwatcher especially, is fantastic. The rooms are of a very high standard, the food is always very good and the hosts could not be more friendly and helpful.
