“WOW!! This place has a beautiful view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

We booked our stay through Agoda and were not disappointed. To stay here you really need some kind of transport as we hired a car from Chiang Rai airport and it is a bit out the way but not overly far from the Airport. We got lost a few times but in total its about 20 minutes drive from the airport, located on the side of a hill. When we arrived, it felt like a really nice atmosphere and you can feel the fresh air especially up the side of a really steep hill. Parking was no problem and the same for checking in. We were alone in the resort when we arrived and for the majority of our two night stay and that was fine with us, its the kind of resort which is chilled and relaxing and its exactly what we were after. Gotta say when we walked into our superior room...WOW!! The room itself is nice with a 4 poster bed and mosq nets..then you walk onto the balcony and all i can say is its breathtaking looking at the view!! Green hills, trees and a beautiful view! like another review stated if you havent got time to stay up the side of a mountain its defo the nest best thing. The bathroom was also great! as you walk into it you see the shower section has no roof and a small square hole which is great when your having a shower because your room is high up nobody can see in but u can shower looking at the view with the fresh air around (not that you will see many people outside as its in the middle of nowhere) its hard to explain but this place just feels rustic, traditional and thai with a twist that we liked. It also has your usuals such as flat screen tv, fridge, a/c and kettle although we had no time to use any as we were off exploring. We tried the terrace restaurant as well and it was good cooking up original thai dishes and the price was reasonable although if you want to try local food your better off going back down to the main road near the airport and there is a big local food market which serves some yummy dishes. Staff are great, efficient and polite and also went out of their way to find out about visa prices for Burma and Laos for us which was nice. It felt like they made the effort just by doing the little things, taking our bags to our room and when we parked up at night, stood by the entrance and welcomed us back and were interested to know how our day was. I would recommend this place to anyone who is after a great stay and a nice view..thoroughly enjoyed it.

Room Tip: A Superior top level room is a must, check it out through Agoda.

We found Monmaen by accident, but it looked nice so we went in to look at the rooms. They showed us a huge room with kitchen, lounge and huge balcony, as well as a roof-top balcony. We decided to stay for 2 nights and were really pleased we did. The outlook was over mountains and tropical gardens.

The staff made a real effort to be friendly and give us tips about the area. Several kms out of town so you can only stay if you have your own transport. Would stay again.
