A very pleasant location but do not end there on a cloudy day. There is absolutely nothing to do and you will be wondering pretty quickly what is there to do.. The BIG minus is that the manager does not speak a word of English and communication is practically impossible. They organise virtually nothing from the hotel and you really... More

Arriving at Huai Khum resort by boat is fun but when you get there it is absolutely breathtaking! A picture paints a thousand words! The rooms are large and specious and the decor of original northern Thai beautiful. My main gripe is the awful bathroom, walls are cracked, no amenities besides two small soap bars, no shampoo (!) and overall... More

Stayed for our last night on a Spice Roads bike tour from Chiang Mai to Chiang Rai. There are 2 ways in here , both are pretty rough and a bit steep. The way we came in you have to get the long boat from the Resort to come and ferry you across the river. Lovely , airy dining area... More

Arrival to the property is an adventure in itself! The roads are very rugged and winding up the hills to this location, another transportation option here is a longtail boat as the resort is located on the river. Surroundings: Once you arrive to this lovely property in the hills of Northern Thailand you really feel at peace. There is controlled... More

Whilst relatively basic, this resort is a tremendous country stay. I literally spent hours watching the villagers working in the rice fields, watching the river, and admiring the view. Beyond this, I can report: * The room is simple (no aircon, rudimentary bathroom) but clean and peaceful. * The food is good. * The pool refreshing. * The surrounding countryside... More

This is a true rustic get away - very peaceful. The staff were extremely friendly but had almost no English and we had to communicate in a series of made up sign language & noises!!! But we managed!

Cows, chicken and dogs and right at the Mae Kok river makes for a beautiful setting. We stayed in a bamboo hut which was comfortable but very basic. Tribal children came to the hotel after dinner and performed a few songs. Dinner was plenty with lots of variety.

The setting is paradise. My family of 5 has stayed there 6 times over the last 4 years. A few of the villas are large enough for all 5 of us to share (the larger ones have 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms). Food is very good but is moderately expensive and you should order about an hour before you want... More

“For the best views, choose the upper level cottages and for convenience to the restaurant and pool, the lower level cottages.”
