Stayed one night. Staff absent. Had to carry my luggage to the room and rather 'absent' staff at check-out. Rooms are well appointed but bathrooms are in need of renovations. All very clean however. Did not try restaurant and swimming pool.

When we first arrived I couldn't believe how nice the hole place was......then we got to our room, the chairs outside the main door are plastic and uncomfortable, the bed is rock hard and I couldn't get to sleep the 2 nights I was there, the air conditioning is the noisiest I've ever heard, the jacuzzi bath takes 45 min...

My husband and I wanted to get away from the city and this was just great for that! Nice big room and bathroom and good breakfast. Staff are also friendly. We felt very welcomed. We also enjoyed the sauna and the 2 pools.

Thank you for your review.I am pleased you liked the hotel grounds and staff. I am sorry the beds were not to your liking. Room 53 is a twin room and we do not normally place guests who booked a king room in a twin room so I will investigate what happened. I am also sorry if the restaurant service... More

I cannot say enough about this hotel. The minute we arrived, we felt at peace. The property is beautiful manicured, with gorgeous grounds and foliage. The Kasorn Spa was spectacular (go for the Thai herbal massage!). Each individual cottage feels secluded, a perfect way to relax after a week in the hustle and bustle of the city. If your goal...

This resort is away from the noise of the city. It has many amenities such as two swimming pools, a sauna, small gym, a library, pool, fishing and a paddle boat. They can arrange tours and transportation. This came with a buffet breakfast that had a European flavor to it.

We stayed at Away Suansawan for 5 nights. The resort was exactly how we expected it based on other reviews. It is out of town but we hired a car and found driving in the region easy and cheaper than being on tours. It also meant we were able to create our own itinerary. Breakfast was standard fare, we had... More

What a beautiful location to spend some time kicking back on holiday! Waking up to a view of the lake and mountains was a treat. If you want some quiet time this is the place to go, out the way of busy Chiangmai city but close enough to get a taxi in. The spa is lovely too and would recommend... More

**bottom line: it's nice, relaxing and beautiful. The travel is hard to get around, I recommend getting a car or motorbike. The food is fine and skip the spa and get your massages etc in the city instead. After the airport we had to get to the resort. We asked them to pick us up, they told us their van... More

We loved our little villa with a nice shower, bed and overall room. The atmosphere is nice and the resort itself is gorgeous. Breakfast was good but started to get old with no rotation or variation. Large DVD library was nice as you are away from town and it was fun to just hangout and relax at night. Staff was... More
