We were a group of 4 exploring the Mekong- and Golden Triangle area, and the Viang Yonok has been "a must" every year since I relocated to Thailand late 2013. Every time we were there, we got the same bungalow and even the same table. The bungalows offer everything you need, are well maintained and very nice, in particular the...

This was a working break. Excellent hosts at Viang Yonok. I was well looked after, the food was delicious and the surroundings peaceful. Bird watching opportunities around the lake are good. I would thoroughly recommend a stay.

GOOD: Quiet, comfy beds, well maintained grounds, decent breakfast with great coffee and delicious home made bread. Nice view over a peaceful lake. Nice toiletries. Small dip pool. LESS GOOD: Rooms cramped, low and dark and stuffy. In the bathrooms very treacherous floor made of loose river rocks thrown on the bare cement. Unstable and dangerous. Resort seems on the...

I would entirely agree with the title of this review. It was indeed a very unpleasant experience, having these inconsiderate guests in our peaceful and tranquil hotel. We have been operating for 10 years and have had thousands of lovely guests from all around the world and all walks of life. All have been happy to enjoy our little bit...

We stayed at Viang Yonok for three nights and enjoyed it very much. Our bungalow was traditional and rustic but very clean and comfortable, and with a great balcony directly overlooking the lake. Jim and Ian were very good hosts. The highlights for us were the peace and serenity, the bird-life on the lake, and the wonderful evening meals. We...

This is a very charming resort on the banks of a large lake outside of Chiang Saen. The bungalow was great, rustic and clean. Owners are fun to be around. Breakfast was superb. Wifi is fast, TV not of much use. The swimming pool is quite small but surprisingly fun. Take a ride around the lake and enjoy the birdwatching....
