“Just as good the 2nd time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013 via mobile

Once again, we really enjoyed the hospitality at Mai Siam plus the beautiful well-equipped bungalows and the delicious food, all in such a lovely paradise garden.

For us it was a great place to relax, although it is perfectly possible to do trips, tours etc. from there.

Staying at the Mai Siam resort was our first time out of our country, and we can honestly say it was one of the best experiences of our lives.

We were greeted by Pranee at the airport, and taken directly to the Mai Siam resort. The resort is a stunningly beautiful place, with local flora all planted by Pranee herself. (make sure you get a tour of the garden).

It was here we met Pranee's husband, the helpful and informative Eric and their lovely daughter, together they genuinely make you feel part of their family, such a feet considering we were there for only 6 days.

There was never a moment of worry when getting around town, as transport was constantly provided. To our surprise the driver actually stayed with us throughout our days, taking us to any place we wanted to go. First class service.

We had most of our meals at the resort, primarily because of the excellent, home cooked food which Pranee made. By far they were the best meals of our time in Asia. She even uses some of her home grown ingredients in her dishes.

There is still so much to say, we have only scratched the surface of the Mai Siam experience, all in all it was a truly spectacular time, one that will forever remain with us. We have no reservation in recommending the resort to anyone.

When you want to take a break and yet be home away from home, Mae Siam Resort is just the place. My family and I realized this pleasure spending one week there from 17th - 23rd of June. At the end of that week it was just a heavy heart for us and for Eric, Pranee and their lovely daughter Marine that we had to bid each other goodbye. That was the closeness between Resort owners and us as their guests, which was fostered during the week.

The homeliness we enjoyed was simply unique. Hearty breakfasts and meals which Pranee cooked 'from the heart' at our requests were unmatched in tastes and service. Eric operated with special personalised service. We had arrived and in haste left one small bag not collected at the baggage conveyor. This contained all our water sports shoes intended for the adventurous white water rafting and bathing of elephants at Patara Elephant Farm. Our plight in having to fumble in the water bare-footed was saved by Eric's dedication in retrieving the bag the next day.

You would be wrong to think that being in the Resort with no swimming pool and other 5-star hotel facilities would be very dull. Eric arranged all the transportation which made it very convenient for us to travel to the various outdoor adventure events. Then when we were back in the Resort, Pranee showed us her garden so well adorned with all sorts of fruit trees and herbs for the kitchen.

The warm hospitality from Eric and his family we enjoyed was indeed something to be remembered.

We cannot stress enough how much we enjoyed our stay at Mai Siam. We stayed for 3 nights at the beginning of June and were certainly not disappointed. Eric picked us up from the airport late one evening in the pouring rain and drove us safely back to this gorgeous place hidden in a village outside Chiang Mai. We met Pranee on arrival and were warmly welcomed to their room. Our room was lovely, very spacious and decorated to a very high standard, we has everything and all the space we needed. Nothing was too much trouble for Eric and Pranee and they made us both feel right at home. Uncle Dom drove us into Chiang Mai several times as we had some tours arranged and stopped at various places we wished to visit on route. One afternoon we took the opportunity to take the bikes down to the lake which was lovely, it was so nice to get out of the cities and back to village life. Pranee cooked us dinner one evening and it was delicious, we had a chicken dish and a pork dish, both tasted fantastic. Breakfast was included and there was a good selection each morning. Nothing was too much trouble for Eric, Pranee and all their staff, we are so glad we chose to stay here and hope one day that we will return.

Mai Siam Resort is charming, clean and exudes hospitality. The on-site owners, Pranee and Eric, treat guests like family. Our family of five was their happy guest for six amazing days during our visit to Chiang Mai in June. Pranee is a terrific cook. We ate breakfast every morning at the resort and had most of our evening meals there as well. During the day we used the mountain bikes provided by the resort or their friendly Thai driver, “Uncle,” who shuttled us everywhere from the Tiger Kingdom to the Sunday Market for a small fee (included on our bill at the end of the stay). During our daily exploits we were given a local cell phone to coordinate activities and also our return trip to the resort. And then in the evenings our boys, ages 3, 6 and 9 years, ran around the beautiful grounds catching frogs and lizards. My family’s experience was nothing short of magical at Mai Siam. We are already thinking of ways to return to Chiang Mai for another stay.

Room Tip: Our family of 5 stayed in one bungalow. They brought in two extra beds and then our youngest boy sl...

We stayed 3 nights from June 16 to 18.

We love how it reminds us of our 'kampong' days, when we grew up amongst fruit trees, blooming flowers and all kinds of greenery. And these come with other creatures of the garden, of course :).

We love also how our 9 year- old son could run around the compound without us fearing for his safety.

We love also the very friendly cats!

Most of all, we love the very personalized service of Pranee and Eric. They were able to acede to every of our request.

Pranee was very patient with our precocious son and even let him help with some gardening and cooking.

Her cooking was also a highlight. We let her decide on the menu and her dishes were always delicious! Best of all, they were always freshly cooked and served piping hot! We didn't need fancy food and certainly not the same old stuff we get from Thai restuarants. Pranee's cooking has that homey feel that you can't get at restaurants.

My entire family enjoyed our stay very much. The location right smack in a village is also great for seeing how the locals live. It's also near the Maung On Cave, hot springs and the Flight of the Gibbon site.

Stay here to get away from it all!

Great hosts! Pranee and Eric and sure their little daughter Marine, who would show thai dance for us during the dinner time. The Thai food from Pranee is really good! And Eric always cares our needs and try his best to make everything perfect for us. The room is cleaned everyday when we take a trip around in the town. Just want to say it's deserved to stay here.
