Malee's is a lovely spot, and true to its name -- perfect for nature lovers. Away from town, at the foot of Chiang Dao Mountain, it's like a little fragment of Eden. The grounds are green and leafy, covered with fruit trees, palms, a dizzying variety of orchids, and it all buzzes with a rich texture of bird songs and insect sounds. Colorful butterflies frequently waft by, adding to the slightly dreamy texture. Good place for a refreshing break from the city! You can walk or bike to Chiang Dao Cave and also the intriguing Tham Pla Pong Temple, with many steps up, leading to a sacred cave. Breakfasts are satisfying; there is no lunch or dinner services, but you can eat at the Nest, directly beside it, or other places a 5-10 minute walk away. The owners, Malee and Kurt, are extremely friendly and hospitable -- and also quite knowledgeable about the area. (They seem to know everyone.) I'll return someday, for sure.

Home cooked breakfasts. Friendly owners. Terrace overlooking forest and lovely wooden dining/living areas. Close to local restaurants & a bar. Would recommend

Thank you to Malee, Kurt and Som for hosting us last week. We loved their hospitality, from the delicious breakfasts to the jaw-dropping 2 day jungle hike through the mountains of Chiang Dao. Thanks to Kurt for coming along and adding so much to the trip – with his jungle banter and hiking expertise. The bungalows were clean and tidy and the setting simply divine. There’s some great little eateries nearby where you can tuck into all sorts of cuisine ranging from Thai to Pizzas. We hope one day to be back and Maylees will definitely be our first choice.

Malee's is a fantastic place for anyone seeking a quiet retreat in a splendid setting. The bungalows are all separate and situated here and there in the beautiful gardens Malee and her husband lovingly care for. The resort is surrounded by a verdant and extensive rainforest and Doi Luang N.P. The rooms are not new but they are clean and have their own charms. The bed we had was very comfy. This is something that many Thai guesthouses skimp on and for me, a hard bed would be a deal-breaker. There is a small splash pool on-site and beautiful tropical birds to watch if you're so inclined. Also, a note about breakfast. The usual guesthouse offering is boring; instant coffee, a bit of fruit, toast. Blah! Malee provides a delicious spread; homemade bread with homemade jam, eggs, fruit and wonderful espresso-style coffee. You simply can't go wrong.

What a fantastic oasis this place is. Wonderful cabins in a beautiful setting with jungle all around. The owner Malee is so happy and couldn't do enough for us. Walking distance into the little village for excellent food. Would definitely stay again, for the breakfast alone... and for longer.
