“Excellent out of town retreat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2013

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and found it to be my favourite of the 6 hotels I stayed at during my holiday in Chiang Mai. I stayed in a Lanna room and it was a good size, with a comfortable bed with mosquito net, and with attractive fittings and decorations. I thought the private outdoor bathroom with separate shower and bath was great. I also appreciated the HBO movie channel and DVD player that came with the (older style) tv. I found the staff friendly and helpful. The breakfast was delicious, especially the bread, and they made espresso coffee for you. The hotel is a 300 baht taxi ride away from the city (or use the cheaper tuk tuk) but if you're not planning on going out everyday and instead spending some time in the hotel relaxing, then this cost is reasonable and just needs to be factored into the price of the hotel. I found this hotel much better value for money than those I stayed at close to the city centre. I would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful rooms and friendly staff. Restaurant's on the expensive side for Thailand but pretty good quality. Excellent place to stay if you want to get out of town for a while as it is very quiet. Town is about 25mins tuk tuk ride away. Make sure you make use of the mosquito net!

This hotel serves really good Thai food. We were disappointed with the other restaurants we've been but this one is special. The rooms are nice, clean and quite big. The staff are not too friendly but all in all it was a good experience for 5days. The pool needs cleaning and the garden area too for mosquitos. Massage is great and I enjoyed it very much, Location is quiet but takes time to reach the central area.

Thank you for staying at Ban Sabai Village. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay and had a good time at our restaurant. We do many things to keep Mosquitos out, however in the wet season it is a tough task for that we supply free of charge in the room the repellent cream.
Hope to welcome you soon again

Stayed here for five days. For three of those days the we could not use the swimming pool. It was green in colour and dirty. To be fair the staff tried to fix it but hearing the European owner shouting very loudly at the maintenance man made it very unpleasant. Nice location and quite tropical. Trouble is so many of the trees hang over the pool that it was covered in leaves by late afternoon.
The room we had was quite pleasant and kept clean. Breakfast was very basic. Not enough real choice. Half buffet and half ordering of hot food. Didn't bother using the spa or massage which was ridiculously expensive. Just go into the main town and massages are 300 baht, not 1,000 baht and higher. I did not see one person having a treatment when I was there.
To summarise, very hit and miss. Nice peaceful location, pleasant colonial type room and nice staff. Poor breakfast, rubbish swimming pool and very expensive spa treatments.

Thank you for staying at Ban Sabai Village. Sorry about the swimming pool, this can unfortunately happen during wet season especially when it is not properly maintained during this time. Please accept our apology for this inconvenience.

This was our first visit to Chiang Mai, Bangkok's "second capital" and we were not sure where to stay. After visiting the tourist attractions and spending considerable time in the Old City, which is busy with tourists and traffic as well as hot and polluted, taking a 12 minute taxi or tuk tuk ride to our hotel outside of the main city turned out to be the right thing to do. The Ban Sabai is a perfect little tropical oasis, far from the noise, traffic and pollution of Chiang Mai. It has a pool surrounded by lush private gardens and a restaurant on site that offers some of the best food we have come across in Thailand in 3 weeks. Not only delicious but reasonably priced!! The staff is lovely and helpful. In the end, I did not use the resort spa as the Thai massages in the Old Town were much more affordable. Otherwise, the Ban Sabai was a wonderful choice and I would definitely recommend it.

Room Tip: Second story overlooking the pool.

I really enjoyed my time at this resort, however you must be aware that it is slightly out of the hustle and bustle. If that isn't an issue then you will find the staff here very helpful and attentive and extremely friendly. We didn't get any massages or anything here but they did help us arrange a day trip were we visited the Elephant Camp and Tiger Village which were great.

Great people and great stayif you want peace and quiet.

Room Tip: Blue Diamond with the Jacuzzi bath was a great choice

Thank you to select Ban Sabai Village for your stay in Chiang Mai.
Indeed it is just 5 km from the night bazaar area unfortunately not in walking distance, but as you say it is a quiet oasis and if someone is happy to be a bit out of the main town it is a lovely spot to be.

The staff was outstanding, with help in anything. Nice Spa and Sauna. The surrounding is nice, with the plants and the pool. There is a friendliness of the staff, where many Hotels can learn from them. Two thumps up!!! Just great stay!
