All of the 5 star reviews are completely deserved. Though it's a little out of the way, Joy's House is a total gem. Joy's daughter Neap takes such outstanding care of her guests. The only drawback was we arrived just at the start of the rainy season, so there were some mosquitos, but Neap and her staff were attentive and... More

We were meant to head to Chiang Rai but were too exhausted after travelling for a month. We decided to get out of the busy part of the city and stay a night at Joy's House. If our last night in Chiang Mai was refundable, we would have stayed for two nights for sure! Joy's House was exactly what we... More

My mother and I spent 12 nights at Joy's house at the end of June and early July! We initially were only planning to spend 5 nights, followed by the remainder of our time in the old city, however as soon as we arrived we were welcomed with such kindness which continued throughout our stay and we didn't want to...

My friend and I stayed at Joy's house for a long weekend in June. The room was spacious and comfortable for two people. The staff were incredibly accommodating and helpful in arranging airport transfers (included) and other transportation, even late at night. We also enjoyed the local breakfast, pool, and drinks. Just don't forget your mosquito repellant, but that goes... More

I stayed for a week for a yoga and massage retreat programme with 2 private tours, and Joy's House's hospitality started before I even arrived by tailor making the itinerary. Not only did they pick me up from the airport for free, delicious breakfast and dinner are also provided with free stable wifi all around the place.They also surprised me... More

My wife and I stayed 4 nights at Joy's House and we enjoyed every moment of it. Not only did they surprise us by picking us up at the airport free of charge, they even included a free welcome dinner which was delicious. The location is quiet, with countless places to relax. All the staff are extremely friendly and will... More

Thailand is coined the "The Land of Smiles," and with smiles also came many laughs and tears too. The respect for their culture is one like no other, and the traditions they have in Thailand are upheld by all citizens. They have a devote appreciation for Buddhism and their King and Queen. They dress conseratively, talk kindly, and live a... More

I've stayed at 3 different accomodations in Chiang Mai - Joy's house stands out as the best one. It ticks all the boxes, but what makes it truly exceptional is the heartfelt hospitality of all employees, volunteers and the children. A genuinely happy place.

It is a wonderful experience. Not only the cooking lesson but the surrounding are incredibly lovely in real Thai style including the plants, the buildings and the tamarind trees. My daughters enjoyed so much about learning Thai ingredients & visiting the local market. I am surprised how much I have learnt so much and they are very skilled, friendly &... More
