“Simply Sublime”
Reviewed October 29, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Getting here is half the fun! Here for work, a guide from the hotel met me and my crew at the airport and within moments we were on our adventure. The drive is so scenic that you never want it to end. Once there it is like arriving into another world so lush and beautiful any anthropologist will be delighted with the views, the villagers, the food. Oh my the food! Even my "city dwelling" crew members found the experience worthwhile. The accommodations are basic but sufficient. And as only one part of an entire adventure absolutely fine. Immerse yourself in the culture, the wonderful people, have a beer and a beautiful meal overlooking the hills- it is an experience you will never forget. The villagers dancing! So sweet. I loved it.

“Remote odd mountain hideaway - but I did not feal comfortable there as a female solo traveler”

From a straight rational perspective there is everything quite awesome with this place. A little bit outside (ca. 8km) from Mae Salong centre in the mountains, within a Akha village and an awesome view over the valley. Basic but good rooms, well equipped, very good local Akha Food, nice staff (which is the family of the owner as far as I understand). To get there take a yellow Songthaew from Mae Salong, they pick you up at the street and then there it is another 5 min motorbike ride up the hill. Now my little bit irrational "but", but as I trust my intuition and my gut I want to mention here as well that I did have a strange feeling up there alone as a solo traveling young woman. It might have been without any intention and just due to a lack of professional hospitality, but the owner drinking Whiskey and beer with a friend after dinner and asking me in a strange way if I am alone, and where my boyfriend is, and if he would know where I am at the moment, caused a very uncomfortable night there and made me leave the next day. So, as I said, nothing really dramatic with that, and as a couple or with friends it could be another story, but from a "feeling" point of view, something about this place was kind of strange and soul-less to me.

Yohann is a very friendly and very interesting guy who tries to preserve the Akha culture.
it is the place to stay if you want to imerge yourself into the real Akha way of life.
The village offers incredible beautiful views on the landscape.
