The resort is idyllically located on the banks of the Mae Kok River with sweeping views across the valley to the distance forested mountains. The peaceful, rural setting makes an ideal getaway for those wanting to escape the usual city tourist traps. The rooms are beautifully designed and the views from almost every part of the resort are stunning. There are numerous activities, tours and treks, which makes this a perfect location to explore the north.

The resort on the banks of the Maekok river and its beautiful gardens make the perfect backdrop for a wedding celebration. Over the three days, we enjoyed outdoor activities, cooking courses, and lounging by the pool with staff tending to our every need. The delicious Shan menu allows you taste a different side of Thai food to other resorts around Thailand. Bryan and Rosie supported us with every step of the planning through the uncertainty of COVID and gave us the flexibility to plan a celebration that matched us. With family and friends unable to travel from abroad, it wasn’t the celebration we had initially planned, but with Bryan and Rosie’s and their staff’s help, we had a really memorable weekend. Thank you, Lisa and Eoin

Dear Eoin and Lisa, Thank you very much for this very kind review and also for your determination tp go ahead with your celebration in these difficult times. I am glad you thought the whole stay was a success and I know the staff appreciated your comments as well as the very generous tip. Also a huge thanks for the donation for our Special Needs School, which is also being 'threatened' due to the impacts of COVID on our business and hence our ability to support these deserving children. Thanks again and all our very best wishes for your future together.

A trip to northern Thailand and the vicinity of Chiangrai would not be complete without staying at Maekok River Village Resort. The wonderful resort owners Bryan & Rose have created a fantastic oasis of beautiful gardens & homely accommodation in a beautiful riverside setting. The resort is setup perfectly for families, singles or groups traveling together. Guests can easily relax around the resort and explore the beautiful surrounding countryside, however they would then miss out on the numerous activities available at the resort. We tried archery, rock climbing, kayaking, cooking classes & a guided hike to a beautiful local temple all of which were brilliantly organized and conducted very professionally. We can’t recommend highly enough that you stay at Maekok River Village Resort!

Dear Kit, Many thanks for such a lovely review. It has been great in these 'COVID' times to be able to offer families the option of a longer stay and thus having time to enjoy the wide range of activities we can provide. It is particularly satisfying to do so when we get such an enthusiastic response, as we did, from your young daughters who were determined to have a go at everything. Thanks also for the recommendations to others to head this way! Best wishes.

Have been coming back to this place for years and am never disappointed. The owners, Bryan and Rosie, will make certain your stay is delightful. It is hard for me to imagine a better experience. My entire family had a smile on their face all 5 days and were never bored. All boxes were ticked - outstanding food, quality and friendliness of service staff, on-site and off-site activities, relaxing and beautiful atmosphere. I want to go back for another 5 days and so does my family!

We returned to Mae Kok River Resort in December knowing how wonderful the food, activities and staff are. The spacious and comfortable rooms face open onto beautiful gardens in full bloom. Bryan and Rosie are wonderfully warm hosts, providig extra blankets when temperatures were nearing single figures, mince pies and a roaring fire every night in the bar to keep us warm. Bryan also arranged a camping trip for us up Doi Pha Hok Pok - including all equipmemt- which was just stunning. On our return the wonderful Chon supervised us in our archery, raft building and on the confidence course. The meals were delightful, the setting serene. I can't wait to return.

Dear Katie, It was lovely to see you again and that you and the family obviously greatly enjoyed your time with us. Like all the other families who came to stay over the holidays, allowing 4 to 5 days to really appreciate the area and to enjoy the many activities is really 'the way to go'. So many guests on checking out after an overnight stay frequently regret that only one night was booked and so it is really good that a good number of guests decided to make their stay with us longer and very active - ideal for families with young and 'active' children. All the best.
