For the city dwellers who need space to revitalize and be in harmony with nature, Suan Bua Hotel & Resort is the place for it. We checked into the Thai villas which comprised of 3 newly renovated bedrooms all of which has an attached bathroom. Rooms were spacious, bright and comfortable. The luxuriously huge bathroom was a pleasant surprise. Highly... More

If you want to get away from everything, this might be the place, but you will be much too far to enjoy the sites of Chiang Mai. And you will have to put up with ROCK hard beds, tired facilities, water you can't drink and lots of mosquitoes. The garden area around the resort is pretty, but you will be... More

Had a conference at this centre. It is very spacious with multiple accommodation buildings and types plus multiple meeting room facilities and dining halls. There were two conferences on at the same time when we were there but you wouldn't have noticed. The start are very accommodating, facilities and rooms superb, gardens and setting lovely and the catering fantastic.

I stayed at Suan Bua 2 times. Everything gave me relaxing feeling. I went in December when the weather was cool. Air conditioner was actually not needed. I opened the windows instead. Staffs were nice and smily. It was fun trying to speak northern dialect. This resort was easy to go to Sa Mueng hill where you will enjoy the... More

I spent four days at Suan Bua resort as part of a camp. The rooms were spacious, comfortable and well stocked. I found the giant glass window in the bathroom rather odd though.

I spent 4 nights at Suan Bua as part of a conference. The grounds are beautiful with water, flowers, and buildings well laid out. Conference food was consistently tasty and plentiful, a mix of Thai and western. My room was spacious, quiet and comfortable, not luxurious. Internet was a bit weak even in lobby.

Our group of 25 had a great stay. The grounds are beautiful (mostly), with lots of places to walk and a peaceful atmosphere. The service is fine - not a lot of English, but there's usually someone around to make your needs understood.
