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...

Our family of 4 stayed at Joy's House for 3 nights in Dec 2016. First, the rooms were clean, comfortable, spacious and nicely decorated! We stayed in rooms 11,12 and 13. Rooms 11 and 12 are connected and share a bathroom which was perfect for our two young adult kids. Room 13 was a huge room and near the pool,...

I cannot say enough good things about Joy's House. We have two small children and this was our first trip to Thailand and we absolutely fell in love. The guesthouses and garden are beautiful and very comfortable. Although it wasn't desperately needed in December the air conditioned rooms was a nice amenity. If we needed anything, a staff member was...

So loved everything about Joy's House! The rooms, the property, the people, the peace~ we did not want for anything! We were so looked after, and treated like family. The staff at Joys are wonderful! Special thanks to Naeb, Jarm and Dow for making our stay so wonderful. The kids at the orphanage filled my heart with love, and the...

I hate to write another review of how wonderful this place is, but it just is, its wonderful. My husband and I stayed here for a week on our honeymoon in-between some busy trekking trips in other countries. We needed somewhere to just relax and this place ticked every box. The place is not as far out in countryside as...
