#1 of 26 Specialty lodging in Mae Taeng
Named after the hill tribe village called 'Lisu', settling nearby the lodge, Lisu Lodge is an eco-friendly hill tribe lodge in Chiang Mai, northern Thailand. It is part of a community-based project that aims to conserve the natural heritage of hill tribes of northern Thailand. Built in traditional Lisu style with an eye for western comforts, the lodge overlooks the lush fields and hills surrounding the valley. We offer a wide variety of packages, from day visits to multiple overnights, including hill tribe experiences, soft adventure (cycling and white water rafting) and trekking. Our prices include accommodation in comfortable king-size or twin bedded rooms with en-suite bathrooms, electric fans (non air-conditioned), meals and drinks as specified in the programs, as well as English speaking tour guides / local Lisu guides.

It is a little daunting when you first arrive at the lodge to see the basic bamboo huts. However, on seeing the rooms and the communal seating area I was won over. The rooms were very clean and the bed amazingly comfortable. I had a fantastic nights sleep, it was so quiet and tranquil. The bathrooms come with toiletries and towels. The bamboo walls are quite thin, which can be a problem if you have neighbours that move about. I was part of a tour, and although I slept really well in my hut, one of the group was kept awake by a noisy neighbour. We had a lovely meal in the evening and a show of dancing by the 'tribe'. In the morning we had a tour of the farm, where they grow a lot of their own herbs and vegetable. We then went around the village area.

This was a wonderful experience! The peaceful and tranquil environment is great to be in. They grow most of the food they use themselves and the staff that works on the lodge is from the local village. Part is the profit they are making is shared with the local community. They have more of these projects in Thailand. The food is great and the staff that serves you are very friendly and helpful. There different activities you can do here. Not all the travel agents have adapted the descriptions on their own website. So, please get your info of the website of the Lodge itself, otherwise you might get disappointed in terms of what you expected and what is available. The management is very helpful in making your stay comfortable.

We spent 2 nights here, it was a really lovely place, I knew it was going to be basic accommodation but it was clean and a very large comfortable bed, whilst here we had a cookery lesson which was fun we were instructed on how to make a soup , Thai curry and pineapple rice, the food we produced we ate for dinner that night which was delicious! Feedback to the lodge would be to print off recipe cards so you could cook the dishes at home, we also had a tour of the village and went to a tea plantation, which was also fascinating. There is an Elephant nature reserve very close by which is an absolute must, the work they do with the rescued Elephants is amazing. I wouldn’t recommend the white wine it was about £32 and was meant to be Pinot Grigio. It was truly shocking.

I live in Chiang Mai and spend a lot of time with the Karen in Doi Inthanon. I took my parents there hoping for an authentic experience with the Lisu tribe. The architecture and gardens are beautiful but there is nothing authentic about the experience. All staff is Thai. We only had a 2mn dance with Lisu people who looked bored out of their brain and asked to be paid for this really bad dance. Nothing from the heart. It looked like they had been forced to be there. The next day we had a tour of the village planned. The village is awfully dirty and everybody we met seemed angry and unhappy. This was a huge contrast to the usual experience I have with hill tribe people. There is something very weird going on there. If you are looking to experience real hill tribe life, do not go there. If you just want to stay in a beautiful setting then maybe. But then it is VERY EXPENSIVE for what it is. So I would not recommend this place and will not take any more guests there.

its basic, but that's what you would expect. i thought it would be sooooo hot in bed, but the fan was more than sufficient. a spot of "super size me bugs" diving in the night, but this soon dies down when the lights go off. the dancing was a bit odd,just throw yourself into and join in -it might make them smile?? the food was basic but local, just go with it. it was tasty. the communal living/eating area is lovely. you might meet other guest there, have massage, play games (they could do with a pack of cards). we had a few drinks. the beer and gin was fine. not sure about he wine!!!! we did the 13km cycling in 45 degrees. now picture the scene 13 stone. 13 km, mid day sun......it wasn't pretty! however, the trip was interesting (sometimes hideous), the tea plantation was fantastic. picking and making green tea. its a must. cycling with the local kids was funny. i must confess i didn't cycling the last horrific hill, so hopped on the truck spot of lunch, then white water rafting. this was not too fast. infact just perfect our guide was interesting and most supportive (especially with my cycling effort) akha village - would give that a miss! my overriding emotion in lisu was a whirlwind adventure or fun, no tv, limited lighting and peace. we should all stay here and probably just for one night!
