We told Bryan (the owner) in 2014 that we would come back, and we could not wait any longer. This charming little resort, nestled in pristine gardens, along the Maekok River, is a real treat for Family Holidays. Besides the activities on the resort itself (pool, adventure centre, cooking classes), it is really easy to visit the surroundings with their...

For the second year running, we've visited this place with a party of around 10 adults and 10 kids: and for the second year running we've had a great time. The location is idyllic - by the river with mountains all around. Its a great place to chill out and watch the world go by, but it is also so...

Dear Mike, Thank you very much for this review. You certainly had a very busy 4 days and packed in a whole range of activities. It was great to see the children so involved and busy, either when doing the planned adventurous activities, or making their own entertainment such as playing hide and seek in the extensive gardens.

Highlights were: temples, kayaking, cycling, archery, Rock climbing and GREAT FOOD! For a romantic getaway or a family...

Many thanks for this very nice review. As I have mentioned before on numerous occasions, we receive so many comments from guests - either in written reviews or verbally whilst here - that they wished they had stayed longer. Indeed we recently had a family stay with us for 6 days and even then said they wished they could have...

I was travelling on a motorcycle throughout northern Thailand for 2 weeks, the GM of a five star hotel in Chiang Mai who enjoys motorcycles as well recommended this resort. It did not disappoint. It is not new, but it is well maintained. It is not one feature that stands out, it is the package and the setting. Beautiful along...

I recently stayed at the Maekok River Village Resort for 6D/5N with my two daughters, ages 9 and 7. The entire experience, from beginning to end, was fantastic.

She had excellent command of English, and our...

To enjoy a different version of Thailand, free of the stereotypical beaches, islands (beautiful in their own right) and constant tourists, head to the north. For a completely unique place to stay, this is your choice. Incredibly relaxing, very quiet. The staff are dedicated, friendly and helpful. The grounds are stunning: immensely beautiful gardens set on a river bend; quiet...

We only stayed one night during our round trip accross the northern part of Thailand. We were welcomed with free cookies & fresh coffee in the room. It would be a lovely place to stay longer, because we had no time to go to the pool or explore the surrounding. The room was very clean and almost free of bugs...
