Thank you so much to Jim and Ian for making the final week of our 7 weeks in Asia, one of the warmest memories. We landed by chance at Viang Yonok after deciding we needed to retreat from the city pace in Chiang Mai/Rai. We were so very lucky to have found this beautiful resort and to have stayed four...

We had already read a lot of good reviews on Viang Yonok and we wanted to go to Chiang Rai so we decided to go and booked for 3 nights. Normally with high expectations the result might be disappointing or not quite what you thought it would be but with Viang Yonok the real experience even trumped the reviews we... More

I'm a Dutch girl of almost 19 years old and travelling in South-Eat Asia for at least 3 months. After a few weeks Pai I went to Chiang Saen, because my dad have told me that I could find there a pearl nearby the lake. When I wake up and rise in my beautiful four-poster bed I have a perfect...

Unfortunately, we only had one night booked at Viang Yonok, after a motorcycle tour of Myannmar. We wished we had booked longer. We were given the Egret Room, which had a four poster bed and a fabulous view across the lake. The room was beautiful and we felt that we had arrived in paradise. Everything was so peaceful, fantastic subset,... More

We live in steamy Bangkok and we were looking for a place to run away to for some quiet time, fresh air, cool temperatures and green landscapes... we found all of that and more in Viang Yonok. Beautiful place, next to a lake, with birds singing, amazing sunsets and wonderful hosts. Ian and Vassana are not just friendly, but also... More

There are hotels for THB 100,000 or THB 40,000 nearby, if this is what you like to spend per day. But if you are happy with one of just about 7 stand-alone bungalows in a peaceful and lovely location, with charming and helpful hosts, a wonderfull garden with a small pool, then go to this place for a bit more...

We have been to Thailand many times and have stayed at 5 hotels so far this trip and probably more than 2 dozen on previous visits. Never have we found the hostess/host so caring and helpful.

Had a fine trip to Viang Yonok, with lovely views and attentive service. The owner is a bit too attentive at times. She has a tendency to chase after you and shout out suggestions for things to do, but she means well.
