    From the villa to the cookies: all is great!”

    Luxury two persons villas in a rural environment, a great owner and staff and fresh cookies in a mountain Eden

    Staying at Gims resort started in our case already at the airport. An orange jeep and two guys with our name on a piece of paper waited for us just outside arrival hall of the cute little airport of Mae Hong Son. This mountain village is such a great place to stay however only few should know because you do not want to have every one to come overthere. Being at Gims Resort - a couple of minutes away from the airport but you do not notice any plane at all - is like you are in the middle of a country side. Next to a rice field, around a little oval village square where tiny brooks run along the path as a separation from the main house, nine little villas are hidden between a bamboo forest. On first sight the villas look like the farmers have left three days before with their harvest because of the outside 'look and feel' of the wooden houses with their terraces some less than a metre above the clay soil. When you enter the villa you will find the luxury of a hotel room with all aminities you'd also expect in BKK or Chiang Mai... However, as soon as you look outside you might see a chicken or a squirl passing by. And your villa has its own privacy under the trees. Sitting on the porch and listening to the sound of rural are amazingly relaxing. Mind the mosquitoos and do not leave the slightest thing eatable like a piece of apple or chips on your villa floor. Ants might start to make a trail and bring your tiny left overs to their places. The very large shower room with a wooden floor is exotic as the towel rack: typical up country. This resort has no restaurant with breakfast or dinner. For that you can walk a couple of minutes to a closeby location or bike (for free rented out by the resort) into the city centre - 15 minutes - where you can find nice breakfast and dinner restaurants. Nevertheless, the whole day you can drink coffee or tea with fresh made cookies in the main house or reception. There you also have the best wifi connection or a wired workstation.

    An enjoyable oasis in the countryside of MHS”

    The view, the stand-along bungalows, the management

    We had a lovely time at Gims Resort in Mae Hong Son with our 2 children. The bungalows were very nice stand-along dwellings with decks out back. Ours were positioned along a rice paddy with great views of the surrounding hills. It was enjoyable to wake up in the mornings and relax on the patio in the lounge chairs and enjoy the scenery. The resort is a bit out of town (we had our car), which might make it more challenging to see/experience the town for some, but it was only about a 5 minute drive into the town. The management was wonderful and really made us feel at home. Our kids enjoyed the gardens and green space surrounding the bungalows. Overall, we had a lovely trip to Mae Hong Son and Gims Resort!

    Location and Friendly Owner

    This place is better in the flesh and very contemporary with nice little touches. Hidden away enough to feel like your alone in the mountains of Mae Hong Son, and from the outside looks very much like a well constructed hut but, on the inside has a modern city hotel feel. If you don't happen to have a vehicle, they offer free bicycles to ride to see the area at your own leisure. If your the sort of person to choose Mae Hong Son as a destination, then your the sort of person to enjoy a stay at Gims resort.

    Excellent stay!”

    We came to Mae Hong Son, not knowing how long we would like to stay, but ended up spending 6 nights here. First of all the staff here is so friendly and helpful. We went on a 3 day trekking tour and while booked out of the hotel, they kept our luggage for safekeeping. Other than that just very friendly, helpful and pleasant people here at Gims Resort. The only reason for location and 4 stars is because it is a little out of town if you want to walk. But luckily the staff helped us get a motorbike and then we were all set! We would definitely come back!

    Great Base for Mae Hong Son”

    Peace and quiet

    Gim's Resort has good-sized well-designed bungalows in a rural setting, just on the edge of Mae Hong Son. Sitting on your deck overlooking the rice paddies is a delight.The communal wi-fi area has tea and coffee available all day, and the friendly owners are always on hand for advice. This was our second visit to Gim's Resort and to Mae Hong Son, which we really like. Mae Hong Son is a delightful town, with a lovely lake in the middle and great scenery all around.

    Free bottled water, free wifi, free use of bicycles. Reasonably priced

    We loved our stay at this resort. The owners are very nice and always willing to help. The rooms are good sized, with modern furniture (although the beds are hard). The location was great because we did not want the noise of the town. The hotel does not have a restaurant, although they do provide a light breakfast. However there are plenty of good restaurants in town, including Salween, near the lake, and Kai Mook. We love Mae Hong Son and decided to stay an extra two nights. Would have stayed longer but had other hotel commitments elsewhere. Can't go wrong with this place.

    the staff were very friendly. the rooms were immaculate. free internet service (although they do turn it off at night). a light breakfast was provided, which consisted of local foods. they do not have a restaurant but there are plenty of good restaurants in town. our favorite was salween near the lake. we didn't have a car or motorcycle so it was nice to have the use of bicycles. we loved the location because we like to walk and bird watch, which we could do in the more rural setting. we both loved mae hong son and hated to leave. two thumbs up.

    A gem tucked away near the airport...close to town”

    Japanese style shower room, accommodating staff

    I had the cottage nearest most the entrance (No. 1), two comfortable beds, a simple but well appointed room. The Japanese style shower was a pleasant surprise; water is strong and hot if you like it that way. There's even an electric hair drier and of course WiFi. Staff is personable, friendly and obliging. They have bicycles for guests to ride and I used one daily. They do have a nice breakfast, coffee, tea and fruit always available, but you'll eat lunch and dinner out. All in all, a wonderful place to stay and I will, again, when I return to Mae Hong Son and Wat Prathat Doi Kong Mu.

    Comfortable, traditional style rooms, serene and scenic location, helpful staff

    We stayed at Gims Resort in the hot season, so it was fairly quiet, but we were very impressed by the standard of the rooms which were large and tastefully decorated in a traditional Thai style manner. The view was great out and over the fields and the location is great, away from the centre of town but only a 5min drive if you want to head in for food or supplies. The owner/manager was helpful with suggestions on places we could go and see around Mae Hong Son.

    Spacious room, lovely shower, nice villa

    This resort is 3km from the lake (centre where most restaurants are located). There is nothing in walking distance, but there are free bicycles and they are happy to drive you into town on request. We were in villa 3, and as the 7 villas are in a U shape, villas 3,4,5 are furthest from the reception area and have the weakest wifi signal. We hired a motorbike for the duration of our stay, so the location wasn't an issue for us. The surrounding area is beautiful and there is much to see. Mae Hong Son itself is quite small and sleepy.

Turn right out of resort and about 100 metres down on the right is a great restaurant, open area around a small pond with a good singer from about 8 to 10.30.

    We stayed here for one night as we did the Mae Hong Son loop with our 2 young kids. It was surpringly nice. Clean, modern, cool little "huts", AC, wifi, attentive staff. Very nice to stay here. We got a really good deal through Agoda based on the resort's website pricing, so that influences my value for money rating. Pleasant grounds, though a 5 minute drive to the centre of town. No problem as we had a car. Free tea and cookies provided. They close the gate between about midnight and 730 am, but would open it early for you if you need it. Overall a very pleasant night compared to other spots at this price.

    We stayed at the Gims Resort for one night. The location was a little bit hard to find as its 20 mins walking distance outside of the city centre. we arrived by car and the check-in proccess went smoothly with the voucher. The friendly staff showed us our bungalow with its own terrasse and he also explained us all the facilities. The bungalow was large with two separate rooms for bathtub and bathroom (both very clean - european standard). The resort has mutliple villas which are connected by small paths throughout the garden. The garden shows a lot of details. As the hotel was bit away from the centre, we received free bicycles to drive there. We left the car at the hotel car park. The drive back to the hotel at night was bit worrying, because of the dogs protecting the surround areas. This hotel was worth every penny and we definitely recommend it for a stay in mae hong song.

    Seclusion, peace and quiet

    this is a delightful place to stay: a small resort of seven villas, set on the edge of a rice-field a short distance outside of mae hong son. although the villas would be perhaps classified as 3-star, the resort's location, the ambience, and the friendliness of the staff make this a very desirable place to stay. there is free wi-fi in the lobby that reaches some of the nearer villas. the only drawback to the hotel is its lack of a restaurant. however, there is an excellent restaurant about 80 metres away, open from lunchtime onwards. for breakfast you would have to drive into town.
