Very peaceful fishing village. One night isn’t enough!! We would love to come back again.
Dated, poorly maintained resort amidst a poor, polluted fishing village”
Despite the absurdly favorable reviews in Trip Advisor, this resort has little to offer. The room in our cabin bore no resemblance to the photos, being small and furnished in 1980s style, a TV that had no reception and a bathroom with a feeble shower and no shampoo or gel. The resort claimed to have a restaurant but there wasn't, nor could we find anywhere to eat nearby. The owner offered us a meal which he cooked after a fashion, although to be fair the breakfast he cooked next morning was fine. The resort's gardens and pool were quite pleasant and led to what they called a 'lagoon' overlooked by some derelict concrete settings. There were sad birds, including a pheasant in some old cages, fish in a green stagnant pool and a dog which barked at us on arrival and defecated on the entrance as we left, as had several other dogs along the concrete paths we walked carrying our bags to the car park. Incredible that Trip Advisor has this as the top rated accommodation in Trat!
A Unique Experience”
This "resort" is unlike anywhere I have been before. When got dropped off in a torrential rainstorm at Mairood's parking area, Joe came out with a cart for our luggage, 4 umbrellas and led us through the fishing villages walkways to the resort. We had two bungalows and they were very comfortable, bedroom, living room, bathroom and front porch. The main attraction is the owner, Chin. We stayed for 3 nights and each night he and his staff prepared excellent Thai meals for us. Afterwards we would sit around our table with him and other guests and "chat". He is quite the character. The grounds at Mairood are like a well tended garden. Chin has many aviaries filled with a variety of exotic and rescued birds, along with numerous dogs and cats. The village is an experience and filled with friendly folks. There are two beaches, one walkable so you can get wet in the warmest water ever!
I found my paradise”
Coming here is like arriving in paradise! This wonderful garden, the nice pool and the only noise is birds singing. We really loved our stay here. All the staff is caring about you and Chin is a very good cook. Our room was spacious and the aircon did cool very well but did not blow directly on the bed. The bathroom was very big and had a nice big shower. Our bungalow had a small terrace with view of the pool and garden. And even from our bed we had a view of the garden. We could borrow bicycles to explore the surrounding. The village itself is worth the travel! It's a fishing village with open houses built on stilts. Here you get a feeling of how Thai life is. Mairood Resort is a very quiet place with lots of animals and not much to do. But it's a place where you can meet people who love to travel and who have many stories to tell. It's a place to take a rest and find yourself. I will return for sure!!! Chin thank you and your team for making this few days unforgettable!
Idyllic Setting and Restful Stay”
Chin Manasmontri's Mairood Resort is in an absolutely idyllic setting on the east side of The Gulf of Thailand, near the Cambodian border. The resort is away from the hustle and bustle of big cities. Mairood Re consists of several buildings, part in a mangrove forest and the rest inside a shady and well-manicured 'campus'. Chin is an animal lover, so several dogs, cats and birds inhabit the grounds. He's also a professional chef, so can create delicious Thai dishes for his guests. The staff are very friendly and eager to please. They exceeded my expectations. The pastoral tranquility and natural beauty of Mairood Resort would be an ideal setting for anyone looking for a quiet setting to think, write, compose or just get away from the stresses of daily living. I enjoy big cities, but sometimes really relish the opportunity to get away from it all for awhile. Chin and his staff, in their unobtrusive way, made me feel like their honored guest. I really look forward to returning.
beautiful place in a tropical garden”
Very nice and clean bungalows in a beautiful wide tropical garden. We stayed in the new house in a spacious appartment on the second floor with a huge terrasse and a stunning view over the river. The food in the restaurant was great, especially the sea food. The athmosphere was really special and the staff was very friendly and helpful. A great thanks to the boss Chin and his team!
Chin, the owner of Mairood Resort, has created something very special, and my fiancee and I shared the delight of experiencing it. For those who appreciate gardens, tranquility, peacefulness, great food and genuine Thai hospitality, look no further. This is a little Eden. Genuine warmth and graciousness in abundance. Mr. Chin and all his staff were the embodiment of hospitality and kindness. Enjoy this special place. I know I will again.
Terrific, relaxing experience”
Mr. Chen is an extraordinary host. His resort is surrounded by a Thai fishing village -- so you are IN Thailand but you can also retreat and relax. A swim in the ocean is a short drive away. The grounds are graced with a variety of roaming, friendly animals, including Ya-Ya, the pig. Chin is also a superb cook.
Mairood Resort was outstanding”
Heavenly oasis with wonderful staff and delicious meals.
A quiet lush haven”
We didn't want to leave! A very peaceful and quiet tropical paradise. Enjoyed the entire time and the well laid out bungalow. Hope to return some day.
Heaven in the garden, paradise beaches nearby”
Mai Rood Resort is a heaven for travelers – for people who want to experience and be pampered at the same time. To enter the resort you’ll walk on the bridges trough the lively fishing village - authentic and picturesque – to arrive to an other world: a lush garden with all kinds of trees and pets, with bungalows and houses spread around the pool and near the river/lagoon side. The rooms are very different – all decorated by Chin who has taken advantage of his experience with American interior decoration to give them quite an other style than the modern Thai. All rooms have some kind of a balcony - some with fantastic view, and throughout the garden you’ll find pavilions, big swings, small terraces etc. to relax and enjoy the view, in case your balcony doesn’t have it. Food is excellent – everything we got was very good, but I still dream about the yellow seafood curry and the breaded chicken in fresh green curry. You can rent a motorbike or lend a bicycle and drive to one of the nearby beaches. Sand and water is like paradise. It’s not touristic beaches with sunbed and umbrellas, but typically Thai beaches, with small huts. At the end of the official beaches you’ll find the white powder sand beaches – remember to bring your own beach blanket or towel. And beware of the sand flies at the end of the wet season (end October) - if you see one, change beach. Worth much more than a stop-over on the road between Cambodia and Bangkok.
Unique experience of warm hospitality and”
Unusual, peacefull, inspiring. Chin the owner is so generous, warm and welcoming and so Judy his assistant. The rooms are designed with colors and are comfortable and pretty. The food excellent. The place suits people who love being in nature and seek quiet and peace. It is an authentic experience with lots of human value. If you come open minded you will be very enriched.
We had a very enjoyable and relaxing stay.The food was delicious ,every one was helpful, the Fishing Village was beautiful .Looking forward to returning next year.
Private life with Fisherman village”
First of all, you must not be the kind of people who addict to city life and facility. Since this hotel is located in the remote area surrounded by fisherman village. The car park is about 800 metres far from the hotel and of course, you need to walk through fisherman village to get access to the hotel which it looks a bit unsafe at night time (but actually it's not). Moreover, there's no shore around the place either. If you are not that type of people and looking for privacy and something different in your life, this is the right answer. You'll enjoy the friendliness and hospitality of hotel owner and his staffs. Although there's no shore around the place but you can reach a small private shore island by boating which is my most favourite time there.
OK facilities but not great location”
Location is such that it's only accessible via catwalks through the riverside fishing village all built on piles above the water. Worst part were scary barking dogs as soon as you enter through the gate. I didn't get bitten but heard that the next day an older lady did. Don't understand the mind set that allows that situation to continue but the staff seemed oblivious to our obvious discomfort and borderline fear of the dogs approaching. And I thought there was a beach at this site which was not the case.
Friendly and warm attention to the client needs”
We have not been a lot but everyone helped us in understanding the area, the villages around the hotel and how to move forward in our travel. The key factors are the friedly owner and the position which is outside the main tourist attractions.
Rustic, beautiful resort in a fascinating location”
When we arrived at the Mairood resort we were met at the entrance to a small fishing village. Our suitcases were carried through on a cart (no cars can get in), the location is stunning and fascinating. On arriving at the resort you find a beautiful tropical garden with a lovely small swimming pool, with cute bungalows set around. The welcoming owner speaks perfect English and is an excellent cook. It is a very peaceful and relaxing place to stay.
A place like nothing else”
Absolutely stunning. This is a really nice place to stay. It is a new experience that you should not miss. Let Chin make your food and you are in the perfect spot. Special recommend seafood salad:)
I was looking for a place to stay on our way back from Cambodia to Rayong, and found this place, so glad we did. We extended our stay for a day.. You have to walk through a lovely fishing village to get to the resort, where you get a warm welcome from the owner. Our room was really great, the surrounding even better; a big garden with birds, rabbits,.. nice swimming pool and near the ocean. The food, made by the owner himself is fantastic, 5 stars ! When you get the chance visit this place, really worth the trip.
new expirience and discover new things.”
Great and Fun. They alsi have wonderful pets. (local dogs-Cats- roosters -Hens- Birds-fishes- crickets) .We saw the way of living of Thai-fishermen. The Community has Forest monk temple that we can do merrit. It was closed to beautiful Public Beach that have good local seafood. It was closed to Thai-Cambodian borderline. Wonderful waterfall. The hotel is relaxing and wonderful food. HOMEMADE.
