I stayed in a Mountain View Cottage in December with a group of friends. I've stayed several times over a decade or so, and the past year + they've done some good upkeep and renovations. The charm of the original Phu Chaisai is back and it was a gorgeous place to end our Northern Thailand trip. Cozy, rustic, comfy and clean rooms with giant bathrooms and nice, locally-sourced amenities. Lovely grounds and gardens and nice hiking trails all nearby. At this price point it is a superb deal and a memorable stay in a lesser explored part of Northern Thailand. Great for couples and families.

BAD: - TERRIBLE BREAKFAST: Not as variety as it should be and DO NOT have any sign to let the customer know what the dish is. Moreover, staff did not good service enought to collect the use dishes as well as replacing the utensil and Do not always check when the food needed to be fill. - FRONT STAFF SERVICE: The room was not ready to check-in when I arrived so I left the luggages at the lobby. Once I came back the staff gave me only 1 room card. When I asked for another one , the front said she has given it to me since I arrived which was Not. The front informed that she will find and give it to me again. I have waited for all evening then come to ask about it again and come out that there was only ONE. and the point is the staff DOES not inform me until I follow up. I have to follow up as I am afraid there is penalty for the hotel card as the staff said it should be TWO. However, the check-out staff was very difference. She was good and willing to recommend the place to visit. - NOT get a souvenior as promise: I have booked the hotel directly from hotel website which indicated that "WINTER DREAM" will get a survenior - but NOTHING!!! - EXTRA BED: the bed was too soft to sleep and causing the BACK PAIN. Good: - Nice view

We really enjoyed our stay here. This was in January 2020, pre-pandemic. Our room was rustic which is the point but a good size and well appointed with a beautiful balcony. It had a large bathroom with separate tub and shower. The grounds and views are lovely. The one major annoyance was that the pool was under maintenance while we were there so we had to use a second pool at the 'fitness centre' which really just seems like an abandoned resort a 10 minute walk up the hill. It was nice though with great views and totally empty. Overall a very nice stay.

My family just return from five days at this resort. It is quite a unique property located on a mountain, nestled among beautiful gardens and featuring stunningly picturesque views. It is truly a nature get away, especially ideal for those looking for hikes in the forest or just lounging on the terrace bird watching. The rooms are rustic but quite comfortable and all the essentials are there - cozy bed, hot water, spacious bathroom, balcony to lounge. The food is mostly local grown and the memo is varied and interesting. It even features some hill tribe cuisine. This hotel has a has a nice attention to detail and although small, is fun to explore and a joy to find the little touches that only an owner operated hotel can provide. The highlight of our stay was the morning almsgiving to monks riding horses. This region of Thailand is still unspoiled - think golden and green rice fields in mountain valleys. There is plenty to see and do in the area - local markets, pottery shop, high end coffee vendors, hill tribe villages, hot springs, and mountain vistas and if you are ambitious, a drive up to Doi Tung. This is a wonderful place to explore a beautiful part of Thailand.

We have been heard about this resort for years about natural beauty. We are impressed to the style of the resort which fit nicely with the nature around. Staff are very friend and super attentive. The food is unbelievable great with lots of organic products such as eggs and vegetable. We stayed at Upper Mountain cottage and the room is comfy and spacious. Lots of stair but the resort does provide good pathway to support wheelchair to certain room types.
