Set on the hillside, this serene resort is surrounded by rice paddies. The city center is 15 km away but with little of no traffic the drive is just about 10 minutes. The resort makes a great base for not only exploring Chiang Rai but also Mae Sai and the Golden Triangle. All guest rooms are cottage style and come with a balcony, satellite TV, and a mini bar. Guests can relax in the outdoor gardens, the lagoon shaped pool, or head to the Hom Nuan Spa, perfect for a relaxing massage after a day of exploring or trekking. Amongst nature and away from the crowds Golden Pine Resort and Spa makes for an excellent retreat.
