Yummy coffee, friendly staff, beautiful craft centre and toilets that do not belong in S.E. Asia!!
Oct 2014
Stumbled across this place as we were driving along looking for accommodation before Mae Sai as we didn't want to stay there. The sign looks like there may be some sort of guesthouse there so we thought we would give it a go. As we pulled in they looked like they were closing but one of the staff member stayed behind to help us out finding somewhere. She put us on the wifi and told us about a place that was 15 minutes away and found it on google maps for us to go to... this place was great and probably the nicest place to stay around here so give it a go rather than staying in Mae Sai if you are near. It is called Silamanee Resort and Spa. We then decided we needed to go back in the morning to thank the girl and also see what the coffee was like.... Soooooooo good and what a great decision! Next to the coffee shop is the craft centre with so much beautiful stuff in there that is made on site.. they also spread some lemon grass out on the drive whilst we were there which is part of their process of making the paper which smelt unreal. After looking around the shop and buying lots of things we sat down for a coffee in their adorable little coffee shop.. the ice cream is yummy and the coffee as well. The staff were so friendly and we had a lovely time there but then just before we left we nipped into the toilet and ohhhhh my goodness gracious me. After having been in S.E. Asia for a few weeks this was like heaven. So lovely and clean and beautiful and really great decoration. I won't put up pictures as I wouldn't want to spoil it but both the boyfriend and I went to the toilet at the same time and came out with lots of pictures on our phones to show each other haha.. worth a trip up north!

Hotel concierges and drivers in Chiang Rai don’t know this place, so you have to instruct them about the location. It’s basically on the way between the Golden Triangle and Mae Sai, but not on the main road. At least when coming from the Golden Triangle, the way to Jinnaluck is clearly marked with plenty of road signs. Just remember their logo you see on the website. It’s not much of a detour since the secondary road going past Jinnaluck continues to Mae Sai. Turn right from main road #1290 into #1041. Jinnaluck consist of a factory, a shop and a workshop where children (maybe adults, too) can make a nice framed picture with mulberry paper (250 baht, takes about 20 minutes). They also have kind of a museum where the production of paper is explained. You can get coffee and water but there is no real restaurant. The shop sells various paper sheets for gift wrapping and paper products like boxes, bags, booklets or ornaments. It’s not cheap: cheapest paper sheets (thin, one color) are 5 Baht while most of the really nice sheets are 50 Baht. Quantities on stock are very limited. If you’re also visiting Chiang Mai, HQ Paper has a better selection of sheets at better prices while a wider range of paper products can be bought on the night market. Jinnaluck is recommended as a charming little place to learn about mulberry paper. It’s not a shopping paradise. Call them to avoid visiting at the same time as tour buses. And have their phone number ready so your driver can ask for directions if necessary.
