This is a more complicated review, because I have mixed feelings. The stay at the lodge itself was excellent, the food great, the service good, the view spectacular, the ambience buttery. But, getting there kind of sucks. It's a five-hour truck on a bumpy dirt road. It was during songkran at the time, so I was also protecting myself and my computer from buckets of water. This was not mentioned beforehand. Overall, though, comfortable stay.
It was wonderful. the most expensive prt was getting there as we opted for the driver at 4,000Bahts. and it is a ways from ChinangMai. I think next time we would try to get closer by bus, but it was its remoteness that made it so special and authentic. We were the only guests most of the time and it wasnt always easy to access informationor trips but when we did it was great and no matter what you did there, it was quiet and special and wonderful.
