We were fortunate to book four nights with our two young boys at this beautiful oasis in Chiang Mai. This was the begining of our six week trip to Thailand and a what a wonderful place to start.
We were instantly made to feel very welcome as soon as we entered the gates of this enchanting place. Great traditional wooden buildings in a beautiful garden setting with trees and flowers all around.
. Its hard to put your finger on exactly why its so special. It could be the genuine warmth of the hosts, or their openness and laid back nature or the stunning architecture and thoughtful design of the accomodation or the delightful home cooked thai food. In truth its all of these things and more.We have been fortunate to have been able to visit many places in the world but I have to say this place is without doubt one of the best. Our visit to Baan Boo Loo has been such a positive experience for us all and a time we will never forget. Its more than just a guest house its like staying with a Thai family. We stayed in the rice barn which provided ample space for the four of us and felt like our own private house in the center of Chiang Mai. It is a stunning building with room below for dining or hanging out. The bathroom had a full size bath which was a treat.
All the staff were incedible with our children , making them part of the family and especially putting up with the odd tantrum. Lin became good friends with our son Arlo and they both enjoyed each others company. Thank you Lin! I will definately stay in touch with Adisak and Orn and hope to return in a few years time. Adisak has offered to teach our son Thai boxing when he's older and we will definately take him up on the offer. I feel so lucky to have been able to experience this amazing environment which Adisak and his team have created.
Thank you so much

- 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
