The resort is idyllically located on the banks of the Mae Kok River with sweeping views across the valley to the distance forested mountains. The peaceful, rural setting makes an ideal getaway for those wanting to escape the usual city tourist traps. The rooms are beautifully designed and the views from almost every part of the resort are stunning. There are numerous activities, tours and treks, which makes this a perfect location to explore the north.

The hotel is set just by the Maekok river and it’s really lovely, we only stayed here one night but wish it had been more. The gardens are beautiful and well kept. The dinner was a buffet and was good, but as with all buffets it is hard to keep it all hot. The breakfast was

I am glad that you would like to have stayed more than one night and look forward to welcoming you back. I am sorry that you thought the foodquality was average and too expensive. Of course smaller outside restaurants do not have the same overhead costs and I would say that there is no local restaurant which can offer the same facilities and 'ambience'. But of course this is all down to personal tastes in the end. Regarding Wi Fi, this has been an issue and despite spending Baht 300 000 to upgrade we have had a lot of issues. However these have at last been resolved. Best wishes.

Spent a couple nights here and it is a nice hotel that has a good cause helping the locals. It's not super fancy, but its is very clean, well maintained and comfortable with lovely grounds. Massages are easily available (I think they must have dozens of people on-call as it

Thanks for this review and your comments. We are very lucky to be able to call in excellent masseurs with little notice and at prices which are very affordable indeed. Kind regards.

We spent Christmas at the resort. We were an extended family of 7 and had 3 chalets all adjoining. We loved the setting, lovely gardens beside the river with ponds of fish and growing areas for the upkeep of the garden. The swimming pool is great and ideal for all ages. The

Dear Belinda, Thank you very much for taking time to write such a pleasing review. It was lovely having your extended family here over the Christmas period and that you enjoyed the full range of all that we can offer families. You certainly made the most of your time. Looking forward to welcoming you back in the future. Best wishes.

I stayed here two nights in a ground floor room looking out over my patio into the water. They have somehow brought water from the river onto the property. The landscape is sort of European, with short grass, flowers, ferns, interesting bushes, a greenhouse (where they grow

Thank you very much for this review and the many positive and pleasing comments. We enjoyed having your group stay with us and it was just a pity the weather was not our usual 'winter weather'. Nevertheless it did not seem to detract from the enjoyment of your time with us. Best wishes.

In April, it is highly likely that the river will be too low to allow the Chiang Rai - Thaton boat trip (unless there were to be some substantial non-seasonal rain). The boats leave from Mae Fah Luang Pier in Chiang Rai. But please check with the MRVR to see if the boat service is active. As for Doi Ankhang - this is an easy day trip as it is only about 1.5 hours from here. We can arrange a vehicle (and guide if wanted).

its about an 8 minute car ride. I wouldn't walk it, its usually too hot. We popped into Thaton each day, its not far.!

Dear Jonathan,,,,sorry just seen this! I am surprised that Baht 500 was quoted! I will make some enquiries as to why this was said! Whether it was one of our new staff or not. You can remove the posting and write another if you wish to!! Apologies for the confusion.

Sorry..only just seen this. We do not allow cooking in the rooms, but we do have a cooking school and guests are welcome to use those facilities (if there is not cooking course at the time)

"Rooms and chalets closer to the river have views of both the gardens and the river"
"Room 105? ground level, patio looking over at bridge"
"Top floor has better views. Rooms far away from the reception and education areas to avoid early morning noises."
"All rooms are within easy reach of the pool and the restaurant. The first floor rooms have better views of the river."
"our room was 112 and it was lovely"
US$94 - US$132 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
