Quiet retreat in Nature”

Stayed for 3 nights in Jul. The wonder of this Lodge is how it provides very comfortable, modern cottages with most of the amenities you need, yet retains the beautiful natural environment, optimally landscaped to allow enjoyment of nature. I was thankful that I didn't encounter too many strange forest critters to scare me! Distance from airport About 45 mins from the airport, good road, lovely views as you ascend the hills. Airport transfer was efficient and Kan, the driver, was very informative. Hotel reception Staff were very courteous, attentive and responsive though they speak only a little English and conversation was limited. They went out of their way when I needed assistance. It can get lonely if you're travelling alone and wanting some conversation. Rooms Good sized rooms, with lovely ambience and a great view of the hills and surroundings. Rooms are nicely spaced, awarding lots of privacy, yet felt very safe (well, except for the rats on my ceiling below.) I loved how they had built the veranda for my cottage around the big old tree, instead of cutting it down. Lovely grounds to walk around and simply absorb the quiet of nature. The cottage was fitted with exactly the right fittings and furniture a modern traveller would expect. Toilet and bathroom were nicely done up, very clean. They cleaned the rooms 2 times a day and kept it super comfortable. Umbrellas were available when it rained. And there were enough electricity points and sockets to charge phones, laptops, etc. There were 2-3 power shut downs during my stay but restored within a minute, so there wasn’t anything to worry about. A working torch was available in the room, for use when you walk around in the grounds after sunset. Or during a power shutdown. A big bowl of fruit was waiting in the room. They provide 6 bottles of complimentary water, each 500ml. 3 litres! Nice deco using flowers and leaves from the forest. There was a big TV screen but my room only had Thai satellite TV and no Engli

Peaceful stay”

Hill lodge is a lovely hotel tucked away in the hills! It is very out of the way so a car is recommended - driving isn't too bad in this part of Chiang Mai! I would get a car from the airport and drive yourself as we got collected and found ourselves stuck! The staff were all very helpful and attentive. They couldn't do enough for us. The room was very peaceful and beautiful scenery. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants some peace and quiet!

The best hotel I have stayed in”

The beautiful environment、Warm service、The delicious food

This is our last Hotel Chiang Mai travel, we go out a hotel tourism has favorite. Although the more remote location away from the Chiang Mai (from the center of the city taxi about 700 baht), but definitely worth to stay. The environment is very quiet, the hotel is only 7 rooms, all built close to the mountains of the independent house, the rooms are very spacious and well-equipped facilities; the hotel manager and the attendants are very enthusiastic, and each time was a warm smile and greeting, let us have a feeling of home; the food is very delicious. Away from the city hustle and bustle here, absolutely is the resort of choice, whether it is the environment and I think that is a super five-star service, we look forward to the next check here

A great natural sanctuary ”

The lodge is in the forest in the Chiang Mai surroundings, which makes it amazing natural escape, but it is far from Chiang Mai town so you will need a car or a motorbike to commute. The rooms are amazing, private and with huge connected windows giving you breathtaking view of the forest. Recommend for couples looking for a peaceful escape. Would definitely go back.

Wonderfull stay, ideal for relaxing.”

The garden and surroundings, the layout of the place and hospitality and friendliness as well as flexiblity to suit our needs of the staff

We loved our stay. It was ideal for us after a busy and hectic time. We needed the rest and the relaxation and Hill Lodge with its beautiful garden and flexible and friendly staff was just what we needed. The location out of town and in a quiet and beautiful hill area was perfect for us. Our two young children (8 and 6) also loved it and we would definitely like to come back also with our two big daugthers.

Relaxing, quiet and peaceful

It was quiet like having the hotel to yourself, the staff were both attentive and friendly and the room large, with excellent views. One tip the hotel is a good half hour outside of Chiang Mai so you really need to have a hire vehicle.

Very good”

The ambiance is very tranquil and the room is clean and well maintained. Staff is helpful and friendly. However, the location is very from the old town of Chiang Mai and the center of Hangdong District. We were not familiar with road conditions in a mountainous area especially in a night time, so it took us about 40 minutes from the resot to Hangdong and almost an hour to the old town of Chian Mai.

Good property but need to choose carefully ”

Vanilla hill situated at very good location and great scenic surroundings but need to consider few important points before selecting this venue . I stayed there for 3 nights after Christmas. 1. In web site looks like it’s in mid of Jungle but not . It’s far from City for sure but if you choose 2 bedroom suit ,you may land up at the villa which is next to main Road . Entire night you can hear the noise of vehicles passing by and it’s horrible.. this happened to me . In the room there was no bathtub and off course no swimming pool so it’s not a good place once you are back after tiring day trip . The villa as such was great and good interiors. The Bedding looks old and the room were having bad smell coming out of the mattress. 3. Good food and friendly staff .

If you love the mountains, the sky, the stars. Or wake up early to see the sunrise from the bedroom.”

Is high but has beautiful mountain views. The room is clean, spacious with a large balcony to sit and watch the mountain At night can see the stars from the balcony. And a friend, a small insect named Firefly It flies on trees and around us. It's a wonderful time. Clean room, excellent service and delicious food. I fell in love there. And want to go back again. Usually men are afraid of mosquito bites, not like going out to sit on the balcony. He will only go out when smoking. But this time he did. I was very surprised when he tried to play with a small insect named Firefly until late.

Beautiful place”

We will go back to stay at some of the other rooms when we can. The place is beautiful and quiet and has an awesome view. There are no stores and shops around so best bring all that you will need. The resort only serves breakfast. Though you can order food from another resort nearby. It was a quiet relaxing getawayn to read and laze around. Had the most awesome time. Some of the rooms need a bit more maintenance.

Greatfor those who wants to escape from city!”

Hotel room is nice, quiet and clean. It is perfect for those who seeks a quiet holiday and just to relax and enjoy fresh air and good privacy. We ordered in-room massage and it was wonderful, even better than the quality we got from a well recommended/ rated spa in ChiangMai city, and of course cheaper! Hotel restaurant only opens at certain hours during the day and you don't have much other dining options outside the hotel. We took a 30mins ride to the closest convenient store to stock up on snacks and drinks for our four night stays as we sometimes missed the dining hour at the restaurant. They don't accept credit card, so make sure you have enough cash to pay for everything - room, food, massage etc.
