Great shop and wonderful products.

The items available at Arun Thai Natural are great! They are inexpensive and hand made. I have bought a number of items from Marike during our stay here. I was hoping to make some online orders, have people had problems with international orders only? Or is it internal orders too? It is really disappointing reading the negative reviews on here as I have found the products and the knowledge and effort put into making these items to be of a high standard. Marike makes and distributes everything by herself, I genuinely hope the negative experiences are just a glitch.

Avoid this business !!!!!

I visited Arun Thai Natural in Feb 2014. I bought a few products and on returning home placed a large order online. I didn't receive the goods even though I emailed and left msgs using facebook. It turns out that the owner is a con artist. Please don't visit her shop, she doesn't deserve your business. Definitely don't order anything online - you'll waste your money.

This woman is a con artist and very good at it. She has ripped off my friends in Australia for a lot of money. Don't know how she sleeps at night......

A con artist on a grand scale...we lost thousands of dollars! Beware!
Nov 2013 • Business
We became the exclusive Australian and New Zealand distributors of Arun Thai Natural products in 2012. We were trading as Arun Thai Natural Australia.

Arun Thai Natural is a company owned and run by Marike van Breugel out of Chiang Mai. We paid for our first shipment in December 2012. We have not received the shipment or any reimbursement to date despite numerous attempts to communicate with Marike after over 20 months.

When we were finally able to communicate with her she ended the contract in May 2014 but has yet to return our money even after stating that she would.

Not only are we out of 10’s of thousands of dollars for the shipment, we also paid for 2 trips to Chiang Mai.

We have come to the unfortunate conclusion that she has no intention of sending the shipment or returning the money. Our full story is on our Arun Thai Natural Facebook page.

Our rating of this company is below poor. This woman is a con artist and a thief. After meeting her in person, she appears to have a lot of influence within the expat community of Chiang Mai but it is because she is silver tongued and a con artist not because she is a respected business person.

Arun Thai Natural - You have disapointed me!
Jul 2014 • Solo
As a Destination Expert on the Chiang Mai Forum I went over the moon when I found this shop. Great product, a charming and knowledgeable owner who spent heaps time finding 100% natural ingredients for the products. When I learned of the problems RE: payment made and no delivery I contacted the owner. For several months now I have tried to meet with Marike and find out what the problems are. Unfortunately, with no success. At this time I don't feel that I can shop Arun Thai Natural. Let the buyer beware! Marie (nannyre)

Great products but do not order online
Oct 2013 • Solo
I bought her oils and met Marike in Chiang Mai. The oils were wonderful.

However, I did note that she was very flippant about the safety standards imposed in Australia and this made me wonder about the safety of her products.

On returning to Australia, I ordered oils online but did not receive them. I also did not get any response to my emails. Paypal has refunded my money.

The products do sound good, but they have ripped off a good friend for thousands of dollars. Keep away from them

Scammer and very manipulative!
Jun 2013
Where do I begin?! Marike is sweet and nice until she gets a hold of your money then you'll never hear from her again. She'll claim that she's busy or give you all kinds of excuses not to send you the products you ordered. However, she's never too busy to posts and promote her products everywhere on the internet multiple times a day!

If you bombard her enough because she wasn't responding to your inquiries she'll tell you you're a horrible person and that you're very unpleasant to interact with and leave you waiting for the products that you'd paid for with your hard earned money.

Nine months after I'd visited her shop and paid her in cash (to save her from paying a credit card fee) she finally said she'd shipped the products. When I asked for a tracking number she insultingly informed me that there wasn't one because I chose the cheapest form of shipment! 3 months later, I contacted her again. She said that the post office had notified her that they'd already delivered the shipment! Marike, if you're going to lie to people you need to keep your story straight!

There are plenty of honest companies that make superior products in Thailand. Please do your research!

Note: I visited her shop in Feb. 2012 but the option only went as far back as June of 2013.

Express concerns over receiving products
May 2014 • Business
I was about to order some products online but have decided against it. After reading three other reviews I noted people did not receive their goods! What assurance Marike can you give me that I will receive my parcel? Thank you.
