          Perfect for Relaxation”

          My wife and I wanted a quiet, peaceful place to relax for a couple of days. Bura Resort was perfect. We stayed in the deluxe room and it was better than we expected. Huge windows, a comfortable bed, a sofa for two to lay on, and a giant bathroom. The food in the restaurant was very good and the staff did all they could to make our stay enjoyable. We will return. The only minor issues were that the wooden floor squeaked when you walked. This was only an issue if you woke up at night and tried not to wake your spouse. Also, the door on the shower could use a good scrubbing. again, these were minor issues, we loved it.

          Excellent breakfast in a secluded villa up in a mountain”

          The villa has only 6 rooms and is located up in the mountains. The drive up from the bottom is 20 minutes. If not, it is located in the central and just 5 minutes drive away (excluding the drive down the mountain). You can call for grab up but you won't be able to call for grab down. We had no choice but to rent a car as to save the trouble. Fortunately, there's free parking space just right outside your villa room. The owner of the villa is very friendly and also offered to drive us down but we believe it isn't part of the service and should not be a long term solution. Owner also stayed up late as our plane arrived at night and we can only check in at about 10pm! As we reached the villa at night and wanted to have our dinner after check-in, we realized that the villa don't offer any food like cup noodles or something (the restaurant closes at 8pm?) and the drive down will take us another 20 minutes... We were kinda lazy so we ended up skipping our dinner hahahah. However, as the villa is very secluded, it feels like its been ages since the last customer left. The breakfast place is filled with spider webs and insects discharge. A little disgusted as to how we start our morning. Also, as its located in the mountains, the villa is sort of surrounded by trees and forests so there're insects around and possibly in your room too. But I believe the villa owner have already done their very best and it's in an acceptable situation (to me) unless you're a clean freak. Nevertheless, I enjoyed my stay and really loved the room. It's spacious, the bed is super comfy, and the aircon is strong enough to not feel like you're within the forest. The breakfast is excellent too!! I especially love the porridge / congee. Its a must try!

          This is a great hotel to stay at. A bit out of town, but worth it. There is a lot of wood used in the interior and from the outside kind of looks like a rock / cave with water flowing down. Quite magical and set in beautiful gardens. We look family that were visiting us there and they loved the place and raved about it. Food is plain and simple but good. Staff are friendly and accommodating. The bedrooms are huge and lovely and the bathroom is massive. This place could really use a pool as there are tons of water and little waterfalls everywhere on the property.

          A lovely place to relax away from the city”

          What an incredible place this is! It is about 20 minute motorbike drive out of the city. IT IS LOVELY! So much attention to detail has been put into it. Your room is surrounded by waterfalls and greenery. Inside the rooms are very comfortable and large. They easily picked up up at the airport and also brought us into town to rent our motorbike. The breakfast is simple, made to order, while you sit under a large waterfall on the deck. I highly recommend for couples if you want to get away into nature.

          more than what you expect ”

          I'm currently staying and the hospitality is the best among what you can expect for normal hotels and resorts. The property makes you Wow showing their efforts for every single details. It is near the airport and surrounded by beautiful nature which will bring you the galaxy at night. As I arrived very early in the morning with early flight, they tried to help me check in early and even upgrade the room. As soon as I started reading looking over the mountain, I wanted to come again in the nearest time. The restaurant has good Thai food options and the price is very very reasonable for what they are cooking. Hannah and Jazz try their best to get you to some places in the neighborhood and pick you up from there. Lovely place with the nicest staff and cute pets!

          The staff were simply amazing the resort is off the beat and track but is perfectly situated for those seeking to be away from the centre of Chiang Rai, the accommodation is wonderfully unique and comfortable. If you can wake up for the sunrise the view is worth the effort to see. We would definitely be going back and spending longer there next time.

          Fantastic place to stay in Chiang Rai”

          This hotel is beautiful, located in a tranquil location in the forest hills within an easy drive of Chiang Rai city centre and even closer to the new airport. We had a deluxe room which had beautiful sunrise views into the valley and the hills beyond. The water front room which our friends had didn’t have the same view but gained a great balcony waterfall which ran down into a small lake with fish. The gardens were the forest. The restaurant setting is equally fantastic with outdoor terraces and surrounding waterfalls. The food served in the restaurant is to die for and we would have happily eaten there more nights but unfortunately our stay was too short. Overall, we cannot recommend this hotel highly enough and we will be very happy to stay here again.

          This hotel is a great place to get away from the grit of Bangkok and enjoy the Thai countryside. Tuesday's night market was small but fun. Day tours were nice. Bring a book and read by the fish pools. Lack of stable wifi could be a problem if you need to be connected, although front desk area was ok. Would recommed.

          This small hotel is outside of the city in the peace and quiet of the countryside. The owner ensures that this is not a problem and is very helpful arranging lifts and taxis. The surroundings and garden are breathtaking, and the rooms, which are individual houses are large and comfortable... the theme reminded me of The Hobbit. Each room has a private balcony and overlook the garden and waterfalls. The staff are charming and very helpful. This is a good boutique hotel.

          Amazingly beautiful, lovely!”

          This resort is really spectacular for relaxing in a beautiful garden and pond environment. The restaurant serves excellent food which is quite reasonably priced for a resort, and with a good selection. The only "complaint" is that the wifi quality is poor and I had weak 3g signal (with DTAC). If you really need internet connectivity, it's possible by sitting in just the right spot, but it's not optimal. For us it was no problem, we were having a nice quiet weekend, but be aware if you depend upon internet.

Not only was the resort peaceful but beautify maintained and the grounds well cared for, yet still very much part of the jungle.

          We loved our stay at Bura Resort!”

          As promised, Hannah from the hotel was waiting for us at the airport when we landed. We had told her we wanted to rent a motorbike, so she took us to motorbike rental shop. We then followed her to the hotel and stopped on the way for a bowl of nam ngiao, Chiang Rai's local noodles. Hannah was incredibly warm and friendly and we immediately felt comfortable with her. We asked her a lot of questions and she helpfully answered them all. It's a good thing we were able to follow Hannah to the hotel as there was no sign, either where you turn from the main road or in front of the turn you make about 10 minutes later. The hotel was even more beautiful than the pictures on the internet can demonstrate. When you turn into the property, on the left is a beautifully landscaped garden that leads you to the restaurant that is situated in front of a wall of small waterfalls. It's absolutely gorgeous. The hotel has only 8 rooms and 6 of the rooms are their own separate villas and I believe the waterfall villas and the deluxe villas have small patios and waterfalls on the front wall. The view from our room was beautiful as it looked out on a multi-leveled waterfall. Our room was big and clean with hardwood floors and a huge, comfortable couch. I especially liked the bathroom - it was large and came with a large bathtub and a large separate shower. There was even a rain shower, though it only came with cold water. Windows spanned three sides of the bathroom and let in plenty of natural light. Our reservation came with breakfast, which came with 6 options, 3 Western and 3 Thai. We also had dinner one night in the restaurant. We enjoyed the food and appreciated the affordable prices. We loved the environment of the hotel; it was peaceful and refreshing. The staff were all very friendly and made us feel at home. You really get a lot for your money at Bura Resort. Thank you, Jazz, Hannah and everyone else at Bura. We had a fantastic stay at your beautiful resort!

          CUTEST DOG EVER!!! The dog guides you to your table, I've never seen anything like it, it was absolutely adorable! The rooms were really great (large, comfortable, clean) and the staff was excellent. The only downside of this place is that it is a bit isolated (which can be an upside for some, I guess) but it makes it a bit hard to find. Nevertheless, I definitely recommend this place, well worth its cost.
