“Beautiful new resort in Phrae, lovely setting, luscious grounds, very sylvan, great value for only $ 15.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

This rustic new resort has wonderful and spacious gardens and walkways, and is tucked away in an enticing rural setting with plenty of walkways and grounds to explore, close to a sheep farm also. Lots of wood and greenery, and very private. The very large room and bathroom were quite comfortable, and there was even free coffee. Our room had a large deck and overlooked a nice pond in the middle of the resort. I only wish we could have stayed for long. This is not a "swanky" place with a big pool or the like, but an excellent country setting, intimate, romantic, and serene.

The resort has a few nice local Thai restaurants and stores (including one where everything costs only 20 baht -- about 67 cents, which was delightful) a short walk away, but is a bit of a distance from the downtown area of Phrae, so if closeness to the town center is your main priority, this is not the best choice. We had a car so no problem getting around. But if a secluded and enjoyable setting, at a fantastic value, only U.S. $15 total, is more to your liking, we would highly recommend this hotel, including my Thai girlfriend who has lived in this town for a long time.
