We stayed with Eric and Pranee, their beautiful daughter, Dor and all the Mai Siam staff over the New Years period for five days. The wonderful reviews on this site are all well deserved. The whole Mai Siam family were so welcoming, and gracious and could not do enough for us regardless of the time of day or night. We felt like part of the family. Pranee is an amazing cook and we gave her free rein to feed us as many local dishes as possible........meal prices were so affordable. Our five day cost was around six hundred dollars Canadian which included room, two lunches, four dinners, New Years Eve special buffet, wine and beer, plus every day we were driven all around Chiang Mai and the surrounding areas by "Uncle" the driver. We were also given a cell phone so we could be picked up whenever suited us. Oh I forgot, this price also included two massages plus many packages of curry paste that Eric so kindly picked up for us from the market. Service was always with a smile and they taught us so much about Thai culture and the surrounding areas.
As stated by other posts the bungalows and grounds are beautiful. Great beds and bathroom.....very clean.
The drive to Chiang Mai is 30 mins but no big deal..........returning to the peace of Mai Siam at the end of the day was priceless.
On a final note.......my husband left his iPhone in the safe the day of our departure and did not realize this until later in the day when we arrived in Cambodia. Upon contacting Eric and Pranee they went out of their way to return it to us at our next stop in Koh Lanta. Pranee called us twice in Koh Lanta to make sure the package had arrived safely. It is hard to find such honest people in this world and we thank them very much for their kindness.
Thank you Trip Advisor for helping me find this wonderful place, we have made new friends that we look forward to seeing again in the near future.
