My husband and I enjoyed our 3-night stay at Mae Nai Gardens in January tremendously.
The property is beautifully rustic and imbued with the personality and style of our hosts, Ian and Pop. Guests have privacy in their own villas located in quiet corners of the Gardens, each individually styled and decorated. The English breakfast served every morning in Ian and Pop's beautiful dining room (with a decked outdoor porch that overlooks the lush garden) is idyllic and a holiday luxury.
The property is located in a suburb called Mae Rim about 15km from Chiangmai city, in an area not directly-serviced by public transport (unless you hire taxis). It is best to hire your own car or motorbike. It suited us well because we prefer nature/ outdoor environment over the city, and could move about freely on a rented motorbike.
We hope to return and in our next stay spend more time on the compounds of the charming Mae Nai Gardens and the Mae Rim surrounds.
