Best Stop in Northern Thailand

Review of Chiang Dao Nest
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Feb 11, 2013
Chiang Dao Nest was our 2 pit stop on our self drive tour of northern italy. Timing was off and we arrived late in the evening, in august (so off season and raining9 - it was pretty difficult to find to advise getting there while you have daylight.
Just what we wanted, nothing too modern, a getaway from the modern comodities.. immersed in nature.. relaxing atmosphere. Room was a lovely quaint hut at the end of a pebbled track in the middle of the wild.. i loved the use of natural materials. I chose CDN 2 over 1 as it is where the 'renowned international restaurant' is found. The food in fact was great..highly recommended. the atmosphere in the restaurant with all the patio's doors around open, the sounds of nature by night (not actually that quiet.. alot of stuff going on out there!!) Chiang Dao is based in the mountains at about 700m so there is more nature than humans. there is a lovely area for relaxing which has foutons and cushions and it just makes you want to chill after dinner. Very cosy and comfy.

    Great service and value. Bungalows are modest but have everything you need. Food is delicious and the staff at Nest 1 very warm and hospitable. You can walk to Nest 2 for good Thai food but Nest 1 is where you want to stay.

    We stopped at both chiang dao nest 1 and 2, both had their appeal. Chiang dao nest 2 is the quieter of the two, thai meal in the evening is excellent as was the breakfast. Only one person spoke English but was ok. Accommodation is rustic, don't expect immaculate as you are in a wooded area so occasional ant or two will share your accommodation and did sometimes smell musty but saying all that felt it was a great experience so much so we returned for another night this time at chaing dao nest 1 which we preferred as had more going on. The staff were excellent nothing was too much trouble. The western food was excellent and reasonable prices. The accommodation here was more rustic ants again, but only 895 baht for two of us with private bathroom so can't complain. A great location, staff and food .

    We went to Chiang Dao Nest for an overnight visit. We stayed in a lovely 2 bedroom cabin with comfortable beds. The scenery from the window was breathtaking. Our dinner was a barbecue--everything was delicious, especially the grilled vegetables and shrimp. Breakfast was outstanding--terrific apple and banana crepe! The 550 step walk to the Buddhist Temple was exhilirating--the buddhist affirmations along the walk were very meaningful to my family.

    Room tip: The cabins at Chiang Dao Nest 2 were very nice.

    This place is very relaxing in a very beautiful area close to nature. The rooms are clean and simple and the food is amazing. The restaurant is always busy and service is sometimes a bit slow, but it is worth the wait. I feel that due to the busy restaurant, this place is lack of personalised service. Overall, I will still recommend this place.
