“An excellent experience!”
Reviewed 15 February 2012

Me and my girlfriend stayed for three nights at Yul´s great homestay. The facilities are beautiful and excellent, you have all the amenities you might need (pool, sauna, small gym, bikes and so on) and Yul is a very warm and friendly host. You really don´t feel like you´re staying at a hotel. One of the highlights is definitely cooking with Yul in his kitchen. Lots of tips and tricks on how to cook really tasty Thai food (with the host always holding a glass of red wine a´ la Floyd ;-)). The atmosphere is welcoming and warm, you really feel like you´re staying at a friends place. The other staff is also very helpful and serviceminded.
When we return to Chiang Mai we will definitely stay there again, this time for more than three nights...
BTW Yul my friend, do you remember to to put the peanuts in the Pad Thai now? ;-)

We traveled around SE Asia on our honeymoon during November 2011. Out of all the places we stayed, Yul and Cecile at Tonnam were the best hosts. From the airport pickup to the recommendations for elephant experiences and help renting a scooter, they were on our side and so helpful. Yul and Cecile treat their guests like family, and that's just about the best thing about them. The guesthouse itself is lovely, with a great pool, hot tub, and lovely spacious rooms with A/C and all the amenities you'd need. The location is out of town but that makes it quiet and serene -- a perfect antidote to the honking and heat. Thank you!

We stayed for 3 nights and had a fantastic time. Yul is a great host and a highlight is cooking with him and having dinner for a very nominal price.. The rooms are lovely - spotlessly clean and the bed is the best we have had in Asia. If we come back to Chiang Mai we would certainly stay at Tonnam again. It is a little gem .

Room Tip: We had a room around the pool which was really lovely. Breakfast was served on the top deck of Yul...

I went for a 4 nights stay at this place with family. The experience was as homely and warm as going to a brother's place. Yul is a great guy and very hospitable host. A small group of people with him manage the place very nicely. You never feel to be in hotel. Yul advises you on almost every dos and dont's and you feel as if you belonged to the city from years.

The property is perfect with the rooms and amenities of best quality. The swimming pool in the center of the cottages is the star attraction. The jacuzzi, steam bath and sauna adds on. The river front property is very scenic and serene. The whole property is made in traditional Lanna style wooden work. Even the bathrooms are a different experience. The food is great, from American breakfast to the traditional thai specialties anytime.

Yul arranged us a car to take us around Chiang Mai which was another excellent experience. This guy made sure that we are seeing the right places according to our interest.

I would highly recommend tonnam to any one going to chiang mai.

Room Tip: Cottages on the sides of the swimming pool are the best place to occupy

We stayed at Tonnams for 5 nights (after moving on to Bangkok and Krabi, wished we had stayed longer) and it was the highlight of our whole trip. Yul was fantastic with us- taking my partner to play golf and teaching me to cook. It is such a shame that Cecile was out of the country- look forward to meeting her when we return! The homestay was excellent value, Yul's hospitality was incredible, the setting was simply stunning and the food was divine. As good sleepers we did not hear the road that others have mentioned, but did hear the occasional firework (it was Thai new year after all!) The staff were wonderful, nothing was too much trouble and we really felt that we experienced authentic Thailand. Our room had the outdoor jacuzzi, which we thoroughly enjoyed and everything was spotlessly clean.
I could write an essay on our stay but the words would not do justice to how very special our time was at Tonnam.

Room Tip: Relax, chat and make sure you have the dinner!
