Ian & Pop were amazing hosts! We originally chose their home and surrounding property due to the sheer beauty of the ARCHITECTURE, but were pleasantly surprised by the warm generosity of the hosts ! Ian & Pop, simply put " made the trip "! The modern architecture and beauty of the 50+ acres of gardens was spectacular! We highly recommend... More

A wonderful four night stay at Mae Nai Gardens, and a welcome break between Singapore and Chang Mai to recharge our batteries. The gardens are absolutely beautiful and there are art works everywhere, adding to the tranquil ambiance of the place. Convenient for the Botanic Gardens (where we spent two days walking around), and other activities. Villas are private and... More

Hosting is an art, the skill of which Pop has mastered. Originally built by Pop and his partner to host their family and friends, Mae Nai Gardens is a true home away from home. My friend and I spent 4 nights at Mae Nai Gardens and loved every minute of it. Pop made sure that we felt at home and... More

Hosts excellent. Gardens and design excellent. Individual bungalows excellent, stayed in two. Each is different with its own charm. Pool is amazing. Free bikes if you like. Big fish in pond. Don't hesitate to ask for recommendations from owners. Their suggestions are excellent, and thoughtfully offered. I stayed several days longer than planned. Quiet secluded and relaxing.

Loved the art that is scattered throughout the grounds. Appreciated the fresh breakfast served every morning. Ian and Pop were as helpful as can be arranging taxis when needed, and even providing rides around with them personally when possible. Great for a quiet getaway outside the city.

Spent a weekend at this elegant, quiet, 5 individual cottage resort. It is 40 minutes from the airport, and difficult to find after dark. But, once you settle in, you are in for a treat. The design of Mae Nai is beautiful. Small touches of elegance are everywhere-sculpture, clay pots, superb landscaping-wonderful. The cottage we stayed in, Frangipani, was spacious... More

The attention to detail at Mae Nai Gardens sets it apart from the rest. Everywhere you look there's an interesting or beautiful piece of art, handicraft or sculpture. Ian couldn't have been more welcoming and we had an interesting chat with him over breakfast (which was delicious). The attention to detail continues even at breakfast with eggs cooked to perfection... More
