Joy's guest house was a quiet retreat for the whole family. Our room was bright and clean and quiet. The breakfast was incredible and when we stayed for dinner it was awesome! Our boys were adjusting to the Thai food so we ordered them a pizza for joy's new pizza oven, our boys said it was the best pizza they...

Joys house was wonderful, the food was amazing and the staff couldn't do anymore. Our bungalow was spacious and felt like a real Thai experience: The pool was nice and a real treat after a busy day. We borrowed bikes and rode to the Elephant parade museum. There are lots of good trips to choose from. The free shuttle into...

I spent 3 nights at Joys House as part of a 2 week trip to Thailand. It really is a calm and relaxing place. The setting is lovely, the staff are friendly and very helpful and overall it was a great experience. A couple of small points - I stayed in room D which was a very basic room, close...

One night. Peaceful and lovely surroundings. Proceeds from this hotel supports orphanage that is right next door - as does the Italian restaurant on same row. Kids came and did a show. Their smiles were so warm and genuine. I loved it!

We were lucky enough to stay at Joy's House over Christmas this year. It was a very special experience for my whole family (2 boys aged 9 and 13) and included a beautiful and uplifting Christmas eve celebration at the Children's Foundation followed by a wonderful and fun sports day that included children, staff and guests. A fantastic charity and...

So starting with the positives. Accommodation wise the room was perfect. Also the dining and pool areas are really beautiful and well cared for, it does feel like a little paradise away from the crazy streets of Thailand. The location is quite out of the town but a free shuttle bus is a nice touch into the center (make sure...

Dear Guest, thank you for your review. We are happy that you like our guesthouse, but we are sad to hear about your doubts about our Charity. We are sure, more Information will give you the right inside view in our concept. You are right, Thai youngsters and young adults look much younger than Western youngsters, therefore we show photos...

We've been all over the world, stayed in 5* hotels but nothing compares to this place. It has such a warming feel here, I can't quite describe it. The staff are all so young and dedicated to make your stay the best it can be. Joy's isn't just somewhere to stay the night, it's so so much more. We're really...

Our family of three had a wonderful 3 night stay at Joy's House. We appreciated that it was more than just a lovely hotel. Neab gave us a tour of the kids' home, and three children took to our 20 year old daughter causing her to go back the next evening to hang out with them. The staff at Joy's...
