My husband and I spent 2 days at Villa San Pee-Seua and it was not long enough! We headed up to Thaton and were met by a small inn owner (Old Tree House- see review) who did not want to be bothered with guests.It was a nightmare. Had we not already booked our air out of Chiang Rai we would have turned around and went right back to Villa. That is how welcome we felt.
From the moment we arrived at Villa San Pee Seua, the owner made it his business to ensure that our stay was perfect. We had a free transfer from the train station and the owner was up late to welcome us. He gave us a map and explained some sites and the fair costs of things which was helpful as prices vary in Thailand.
Our room was perfect, clean, quiet and comfortable.We slept soundly. Breakfast is included and served along the river (which our rom also faced.) The rooms have a patio and seating area so it is nice to relax and watch the river flow by. Breakfast is plentiful and there is coffee/tea making facilities in each room. There is free internet and an honor bar where yo can get a cheap beer and cool off at the pool (located on the river's edge) after a day of sight seeing.
Now...this hotel is a bit out of town. Which is a positive if you would enjoy a quiet peaceful environment on a river. The owner makes up for the distance by offering a morning shuttle into town and a beautiful (free) boat ride into town in the evening on an old teak boat. You are on your own to get back to the hotel. But, for about $45. a night we felt it was a great deal.
The owner went above and beyond for us. He took us to our cooking class (A Lot of Thai) which I would highly reccommend. Great fun! He also got bus information for us and even drove us to the bus station and got us in the right direction! We have not met a more interesting or nicer hotel owner...we would go back if we could! He studied in the United States so his English is excellent. Thank you!!!
