We spent two nights at Fern Paradise while exploring Chiang Mai. It was far enough from the city center to be peaceful and green but close enough that a tuk-tuk ride wouldn't break the bank. Our room and the grounds were beautiful and the staff was kind and helpful.

We spent 2 nights at Fern Paradise and enjoyed it a lot. It's a very shaded place, with lots of trees. Great for anyone who likes nature. I think all the rooms share a similar design: An open-air living room under the bungalow and the room and bathroom upstairs. They are simply and tastefully decorated and have everything you might...

Our first reaction when driving up the drive way was "wow" ferns and trees where everywhere we looked, the first thing we noticed when hopping out of the taxi was the coolness under the canape of beautiful ferns and trees, then we were greeted by Om!,(Manager) a very welcoming gentle spoken man. Om was so helpful in organising our tours,... More

Fern paradise is a really nice place to chill out in for a few days while still allowing easy travel into the old city (about 10-20min in a Taxi/Song Thaew). Surrounded by amazing gardens that are always changing, you can walk around the large gardens, chill by the pool or enjoy some privacy in you very unique, clean & comfy... More

“All the barns are lovely but some are larger than others. The one near the pool is noisier when the hotel is busy, obviously.”

“The murals in Wat Doi Saket main viharn were created by the local artist Chaiwat Waranon. Spend time admiring them. This information is from "Exploring Chiang Mai" by aurthur Oliver Hargreave. A book worth seeking out if you're in CM area. Tweechiol gardens are near "Fern Paradise" and worth 1/2 day exploration. Highly recommend renting bicycles to explore these gradens, a tram may also be available.”
