This is a huge conference centre and overall it was wonderful. The only drawback is that the rooms smelled quite musty even after two weeks and both inside and the outside buildings needed some work. Other than that you cannot fault the place. The bedrooms themselves very large and rooms cleaned daily if you wanted; the staff were very friendly;... More

beautiful surroundings, peaceful area, comfortable rooms and very friendly staff. Even more so, coming from Europe, I was nervous about the heat as well as having to eat a lot of spicy food. Well, the air conditioner worked well, the food was excellent and they even had a swimming pool to go and cool down!

I enjoyed a very relaxing stay at Suan Bau, attending a yoga retreat. It is very nice location with paths, gardens, waterways, and salas. Any requests made to the staff were met with cheerful assistance. The drive from the airport was quite short, so we got to spend more time enjoying our surroundings.

This is a nice place to stay with great atmosphere. The room is clean and cozy. I really like that they provide electric fan with the big window screen to prevent mosquitoes. Such a fantastic that you can relax with fresh air in the middle of mountains instead of using aircon. Hotel staff are nice and kind.

If you want to get away from everything, this might be the place, but you will be much too far to enjoy the sites of Chiang Mai.

Had a conference at this centre. It is very spacious with multiple accommodation buildings and types plus multiple meeting room facilities and dining halls. There were two conferences on at the same time when we were there but you wouldn't have noticed. The start are very accommodating, facilities and rooms superb, gardens and setting lovely and the catering fantastic.
