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... More

I recently stayed at the Maekok River Village Resort for 6D/5N with my two daughters, ages 9 and 7. The entire experience, from beginning to end, was fantastic. I booked the trip from Bangkok via email, and the support I received was outstanding. The Reservation Manager, Khun Aoy, was very accommodating throughout. She had excellent command of English, and our... More

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... More

We only stayed one night during our round trip accross the northern part of Thailand. We were welcomed with free cookies & fresh coffee in the room.

Absolutely stunning hotel by the river with a beautiful garden. The best hotel in my 2 week trip to Northern Thailand. Nice front office staff Nice pool Good value for money Only downside is grumpy, miserable-looking (with specs) staff at the restaurant for breakfast Strongly recommend it - do not miss!
