    Been to many different hotels, I have to admit that this one is very uniquely outstanding. Right by the Mae Kong river where you are at the edge of the border, you will enjoy the scene of the riverside with simplicity from locals. Room is very sizeable, spacious and unique decor.

    Located in rural area beside Khong river, this resort provides you many types of Thai antique house with outdoor shower. Each type of houses represents different natural scenery such as sun-rising, moon-shining, lotus pond, river-side. Breakfast and lunch here are also splendid! All the staff is willing to walk you up hill to your house after check-in and down

    Love the place - simply the best”

    The landscape and the view are amazing. If you stay in one of the rooms close to the river, you get the peaceful sound of the river. If you stay in one of the hillside cottages, you get wonderful view from your window. Staff are very nice. They now have internet wifi for those who must stay connected. The room is simple but very clean and well set-up.

    Nice view, close to nature, friendly staff

    We stayed at Seang Arun villa for 1 night. The room has amazing view on the mountain overlooking Mae Khong river. Though it was a bit of walking through rice fields and up the mountain to get there, but the view worth all those hard work. Staffs are very helpful and friendly, we had dinner and breakfast at our balcony to enjoy our view at max. Room is clean and bed is quite comfy. All in all, we enjoy our stay at Rai Seang Arun.

    I really love this hotel. It is Super cool especially location. You are very closed to the sky. Taking a bath outdoor. Sip at the terrace to see Klong river and opposite side is LAOS. So so nice view. Service and good here are so great. All are organic. Serve with their heart. Cann't describe more...better come to stay here once in your life and prove my words!!

    Incredible location with fabntastic views of river, hills and countryside

    this place is stunning! the staff are very helpful and friendly. the food is homegrown and freshly picked, although the menu is limited the food is good and healthy too. the rooms are beautiful too right in the middle of the forest with outdoor bathroom. i wasn't sure that i liked the idea of the outside bathroom at first, because it was quite cool when we stayed there but the water was hot and the water pressure was very strong so it was actually quite pleasant.

    No restaurant or drinks service after 5.30pm. Pre order food only. Rooms not located at river side.”

    As a smart dressed, solo motorcycle touring rider. I was asked to move my motorcycle parking 3 times from a location already said ok by the hotel staff. Final location for parking insisted on by the owner was surrounded by piles and bags of building debris. And as far away as possible from the room location on the other side of the road. Very inconvenient for carrying luggage from the bike to the room. Was told NO restaurant service would be available after 5.30pm so was asked to pre-order food at 3.30pm on arrival. The rooms were not located at the river side or with riverside views. Very disappointed by the lack of service and facilities available. And by how I was treated by the owner. Finally I refused to stay choosing instead to ride on to Chiang Khong instead where I easily found much better and more affordable acdomadation. This hotel is appalingly bad. I recommend DO NOT stay here.

    This is the 3rd time for me and my family to visit, and we come to this resort every year. Just love everything about this resort and truly think it is underrated of it's level, the old man at reception is really kind and friendly, really appreciated for his lifestyle and attitude towards life. It is too short for our stay at this resort, wish to stay a little bit longer in the future when more free time allowed.

    I stayed at the Rai Saeng Arun in the middle of rainy season. Therefore, the weather is hot during the daytime and little cold at the evening. I recommend you to stay at "Rim Klong house", the location was great and it is the highlight of the this resort.

    Environment, location, food

    Staying at the Rai Saeng Arun Resort in June may not be a good idea. It's still the hottest month in the north, so the room's air-condition didn't work well during the day. Otherwise food was lovely and staff were so helpful.

    A hidden treasure”

    the wonderful location; the helpful and friendly staff; the clean facilities

    What a wonderful place to enjoy! This little jewel is situated on a lonely load with just a trickle of local traffic. This stretch of the river is very rural and the hotel is about 15 minutes drive away from the nearest villages thus guaranteeing tranquility and quiet, the type of rare quiet where the odd passing car makes everyone taking notice. Pure bliss comparable to my fond memories of Namibia where I grew up, just add the lush tropical vegetation and the river. We booked a chalet requesting high location with views and privacy and so it was. Now for the uninformed there is something to consider: The "high rooms" require a bit of a walk across a sturdy walkway crossing rice paddies and then a couple of steps, we counted 214 of them. The most remote chalets then require another few hundred meters of undulating walk. In other words the "high" chalets are not for the unfit. There are other chalets as well so inquire before before you book. However should you make it to the op chalets you will be rewarded with stunning views across the Mekong valley. Our chalet was adequately equipped and spotlessly clean. Special mention to the staff for their helpfulness (including carrying our luggage all the way) and six stars to the manager Mr Patipat Vichitsopon who immediately posted the jacket I forgot to reach me in Bangkok before my departure a few days later. The restaurant is good and should you like to have lunch or supper it reasonably priced but note that it closes early in the evening. Take at least a day to drive the river road once up and once down the Mekong and enjoy the local markets and then of course the buzz of people and shops at the center of the Golden Triangle where Thailand meets Laos and Burma with China a short distance behind Unfortunately i did not record the name of the villages and towns and my Google Earth shows them in Thai. All in all an area and hotel we can just recommend for any nature lover's and discoverer's bucket list.

    Read the reviews on the mountain bungalows but the stairs weren't that bad, all 165 of them. There is staff there to carry your bags, they were grateful for a 200 baht tip at the top. We were there in the slow season, had the run of the place as well as no traffic on the roads, beautiful!

    Our stay here was just what we wanted. It is a little journey to get here, but definetly worth it. We took the mountain top room. Note if elderly op for the river side. The mountain room is about a 15 min hike. Pure beauty in nature, sunrise, sunset and river. Almost all of the food that is served is grown on sight. Fresh's ,dal I've ever had.

    very natural, rural, queitness

    from the first to the last minute we praised this resort, it's location. A bit far away over 165 steps to reach the bungalows in the bamboo forest is an exercise, but a positive, especially to enjoy the greatly prepared dinner on the Mekong Terrace Restaurant. The owner has to be praised not to be too greedy and construct hundreds of rooms even there would be space on his vaste land. Smiling staff, everybody so friendly, a great joy to stay in Rai Saeng Arun.
