We just spent 2 nights at the lodge. This is a lodge in a very remote village that is accessible by 4x4 only, so don't expect a 5 star experience. The beds are simple but nice and the bath rooms are shared. I got a great night's slept there but do expect the roasters to wake you up early. The... More

This place is certainly a special place. We arrived from the South on dirt bikes on a road that is easy passable during the dry season and can become difficultly during raining season. A great place surrounded by pure nature in a natural very quite and tranquile setting. Rooms are spartanic and small with shared bath room and toilette facilities.... More

A fantastic experience in the jungle. We were welcomed with a dance by the locals and joined in too. We were also invited into their kitchen to help with the cooking of their local food, followed by a very tasty feast. In the morning we walked around the village and were invited into people's homes to see how they live....superb....definitely... More

We booked March of 2005, arrived in Sept 2015 and after calling, calling and calling them (chiang mai office), they never answered the phone. There was no way for us to get there. They have not refunded us our money. Very very disappointed.

My trip to Thailand was shorter than desired and more planned out than I was used to. Karen Hill Tribe Lodge was booked not knowing what to expect. After my first couple days in Thailand all the places I was staying were exactly as explained to me by friends and fellow travelers. Karen Hills was the surprise I was waiting... More

Our short stay at the Lodge during the low season was one of the highlights of our road trip around northern Thailand. Though well-signposted, the last 9km is on unmade roads and you definitely need a 4x4, particularly in the rainy season. The drive there was very much part of the experience and, when we arrived, we were in the... More

If you are willing to take the time to get here, your efforts will be rewarded. It's a long drive from the Chiang Mai airport on a bouncy dirt road. As we drove and drove and drove...we wondered if this was worth it. And then we arrived. We rode to the lodge on Son Mai, our elephant. We were a... More

If you want to stay in an all natural environment in a beautiful place far off the usual tourist spots this is the place to be. The resort is all natural, made of bamboo and wood and beautifully designed with a great veranda facing the jungle. In clear and fresh winter nights (while it can also get cold!) you can... More

Super friendly and accomodating staff in a unique location. The location is outstanding as the lodge is situated in a small tranquil Karen village. The food and service were great which added to the atmosphere. Had a great chat with staff and villagers around a campfire in the evening. Heard gibbons in the trees in the early morning. Rooms are... More
