We had a large casita situated on the grounds of a lovely garden. Very private, quiet, charming and authentic to the Thai surroundings. There was a pool and attached restaurant that served local fare. The magic of sunrise and sunset added beauty to the lush, tropical garden that boasted the songs of many birds. This place was recommended by a... More

My husband and I visited this beautiful location as part of our honeymoon in March 2014. We still talk about it often, it made such an impression on us both. Secret Garden is an incredible place, we were blown away from the second we entered. Peter, the owner, picked us up from the airport - a warm friendly welcome. The... More

We had a lovely stay at the Secret Garden which is aptly named. It is a little piece of beautiful garden paradise with sculptures and a pond amidst charming bungalows on the property. There are pathways to the restaurant and bar area which is under thatched roofs and is also very charming. We were greeted warmly by Peter and offered... More

My wife and I have just spent 4 glorious weeks in this beautiful garden of Paradise where our every need was catered for. Our villa was spacious, airy and comfortable and the same goes for the other 14-15 bungalows in The Secret Garden.

We stayed 3 nights for a pre-conference getaway and loved every minute of this quiet tropical oasis.

Our 4 night stay at the Secret Garden was very enjoyable. Situated about 20 minutes from the old city, the hotel's location is idea for trips into Chang Mia, yet perfect for a quiet night's rest away from the city and traffic noise. The hotel provided transportation to and from the main road where you could pickup a 'white shuttle'... More
