We stayed in this hotel for one night on a tour in January 2012. It sits in the mountains near Chiang Rai. From the end of a gravel road we took a boat to the other side of a small lake to be picked up by the hotel to take us up the hill to the hotel. The hotel’s reception area is in a separate building from the rooms, as is the dining area. There are many stairs to negotiate to go from the room to the dining area.
The room we were in was tired and old. The walls are painted a yellow-green combination. The bathroom could use a major renovation. While the accommodation was acceptable and the setting is beautiful, we were disappointed that the hotel was not modernized and that it offered no amenities (such as coffee or tea making, WiFi or internet in the room). We had no hot water in the morning for showers. Breakfast was fine – western and local cuisine, but with little choice. But the food was hot. Their internet site looked great – but the reality was somewhat disappointing. The rooms are pricey on their website and not worth the money, except for the setting. The hotel also has a tea plantation and a winery.
You would need a tour or a driver to find this place. It is isolated and you would need full board if you stayed here. There is no village nearby that we could see. If you are looking for a quiet, isolated vacation away from the bustle of Thailand, then you would probably enjoy this hotel. It is OK – just OK.
