I stayed at Joy's House at the end of October for 6 nights and enjoyed it immensely. Joy and Uli are the best hosts ever!
The accommodation is cozy, and the trips well organized. It really gives you a family feel, and by the time I had to travel to the south, I simply did not want to go!
During my stay I took daily yoga lessons with one of their teachers. It was a challenge, but I ended up doing something I thought I could never manage before.
I particularly enjoy the trip to the farm of the Children's Shelter Foundation. The children are so sweet, and I miss them already. On the way back from the farm, we stopped by a hot spring at night. Bathing under the stars was simply amazing, and words fail to capture the experience.
If you are looking for a place to rest your mind, I would say choose Joy's House without hesitation. It is out of the touristic part of town, hence very quiet. The gardens are well maintained and the food is great (esp. if you are a vegetarian). Try the Thai massage and herbal ball massage. My friend and I enjoyed both very much. If you are a musician, you can even jam with the staff at night.
Go there with an open mind. It is not a five-star hotel, but it has much more to offer.
