We stayed here in January for few days. I booked this resort by chance and it turned out to be great. The territory of this resort is literally a paradise garden, you can walk there every day and won't get bored. Rooms are spacious, we had a family suite, not brand new, but felt like home, cozy and beautiful. We...

Dear Veronica, Many thanks for this very nice review. The gardens seem to impress all our guests and our gardeners (all 10 of them!!!) take great pride in their work and in receivng the many lovely comments about them.

We told Bryan (the owner) in 2014 that we would come back, and we could not wait any longer. This charming little resort, nestled in pristine gardens, along the Maekok River, is a real treat for Family Holidays. Besides the activities on the resort itself (pool, adventure centre, cooking classes), it is really easy to visit the surroundings with their...

For the second year running, we've visited this place with a party of around 10 adults and 10 kids: and for the second year running we've had a great time.

Many thanks for this very nice review.

I was travelling on a motorcycle throughout northern Thailand for 2 weeks, the GM of a five star hotel in Chiang Mai who enjoys motorcycles as well recommended this resort. It did not disappoint. It is not new, but it is well maintained. It is not one feature that stands out, it is the package and the setting. Beautiful along...

To enjoy a different version of Thailand, free of the stereotypical beaches, islands (beautiful in their own right) and constant tourists, head to the north. For a completely unique place to stay, this is your choice. Incredibly relaxing, very quiet. The staff are dedicated, friendly and helpful. The grounds are stunning: immensely beautiful gardens set on a river bend; quiet...
