My husband and I stayed at the BaanBooLOo Guest House for 4 nights as part of our Thailand Honeymoon in November. We truly loved the culture and atmosphere of Chiang Mai and BaanBooLOo was the perfect accomodation to meet our needs. The grounds are stunning and all of the rooms are unique in their own way. I loved our "living room", which was an open air deck with a bookself, hammock and other lounge pieces in the midst of the gardens. You don't feel like you are at a "hotel", you feel like you are home. And while the grounds and rooms are beautiful, it is the people who work at this guest house (Adisak, Ohn, Rhin - spelling may be wrong - sorry!) that truly make it feel like home. On our last day in Chiang Mai, Rhin taught me and another female guest how to do a traditional Thai dance. He dressed us in traditional Thai clothing and even did our hair. We then performed this dance before dinner for all the other house guests. This same night, we had an amazing feast, prepared by the staff, and lit lanterns (since we and some others were just missing the big lantern festival). The whole experience was beautiful. If we ever have the pleasure of returing to Chiang Mai, rest assured we will be staying at the BaanBooLOo!!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A unique small Thai country village style guesthouse with surrounding wooden villas, hammocks, country garden, outdoor lounges with lots of arts and wood carvings. Visitors should be aware that this is a very natural setting. There are many kinds of creatures in the gardens Some bathrooms are semi open air and mosquitos are omnipresent as in the most part of Chiang Mai. We use mosquito netting in bedrooms as well as using air-conditioning, fans and mosquito repellents and creams free of charge. Guests are advised to wear loose fitting clothing with long sleeves and leg coverings in the early mornings and early evenings or to use a good strength anti mosquito spray. Sunny daytimes are mostly mosquito free. Hard to believe but BaanBooLOo Village seems completely cut off from the noise of the city centre yet is only 15 minutes from Chiang Mai International Airport. It is without question the quietest location in all of central Chiang Mai. We are in the central historic Old City Inner Moat area just 5 minutes walk from the major landmark Wat Pra Singh temple known by all in Chiang Mai. We provide a comprehensive and hearty Thai and International breakfast from 7am until 10am. We do cater for early start breakfasts and special dietary needs. Guests are recommended to discuss any special needs upon check-in. We have a quiet policy after 10pm as these are wooden houses and respect for neighbours is paramount. We also have an outdoor late lounge area with music and drinks until around midnight which is separate from guest rooms to avoid sleep disturbance. There are late night bars, jazz club and eateries all within 20 minutes walk or a short tuk tuk ride for around 100 baht. Most venues are open until around 1am. A handful are open until the early hours. Our concierge service includes helping guests to plan activities/spas/trekking plus advice on events in and around the city. This service is impartial and is included in the room charge. We would never recommend tourist service companies with animal cruelty reputations. BaanBooLOo Village is a 'green' environmentally friendly organisation evolving gradually. Our long term goal is to create a green oasis in the form of a living museum in the historic old city walls. ... more less
