Me and my boyfriend went to Chiangrai for business and decided to make a trip to Chiang Saen. We found this hotel suggested by a website(which I can't remember). We didn't expect much, just want a place that accept a pet to stay with because we bring a puppy with us. The owner and his wife warmly welcome us, they... More

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.

Living in Chiang Rai, my wife and I have stayed here a number of times. The accommodations are among the best in Chiang Saen, and the food is the best. There is no pressure here, only an attentiveness to what you want in your own time. There are a multitude of opportunities to sight see or just stay at the... More

If I have any free time and want to get away from Bangkok, my first thought is to return to Viang Yonok. The lakeside setting, well-kept garden, and country atmosphere make it a special place to visit. True, there are other resorts with remote settings, but this place and the outstanding hospitality are magical. It will remain high on my... More
