Staying at Viang Yonok for 2 nights between Christmas & New Year was like catching up with old friends. We were immediately made to feel at home by Ian & Vassana, and enjoyed our many conversations with Ian about his music career, time at sea and his passion for restoring bikes. The food that was prepared for us each day...

Hi TonyGlenWoods, Thank you very much for your great review. You came at the busiest time of year, but we were able to take you through the mountains on the smaller roads to escape the crowds, on that day out. It's great to hear you enjoyed your brief stay in our little piece of paradise. That's right, we had our...

Arrived here with our two children on Christmas Eve, hoped Santa would find his way to us and also hoped this would be a good place to enjoy Christmas. We needn't have worried. Of all the places we stayed in our six week vacation throughout Thailand, Viang Yonok was a standout experience. Santa managed two visits, one in the middle...

We stayed here a few weeks ago and absolutely loved it. We have been to Thailand about 7 times and have to say that we have never experienced this kind of service anywhere else.

My wife and I spent 10 days at Viang Yonok over Christmas and New Year and struggle to find words to adequately describe a truly wonderful experience. Viang Yonok has received a lot of praise in trip advisor reviews and we can now say all are well deserved. The feeling of the stay for me is best described like slipping...

The rooms here are beautiful and very comfortable. Ours overlooked the lake with gorgeous sunsets and views of the water birds. The food was very good and we were treated to a wonderful Christmas meal by Ian and Vanessa, followed by the guests entertaining each other! Great fun! We thoroughly recommend a stay here, for luxury and attention to detail.

The best of east and west - local charm and western amenities, food is delicious, sunsets are spectacular. But probably the day trips provided by the owner and one of which we took, was the most unexpected surprise. Away from the main road, occupied by tourist bus companies, down narrow, twisted roads used only by locals, to the villages where...

Hi Natasha W, Thank you very much indeed for your kind review. We're happy you enjoyed the tour up in the mountains, away from the touristy areas. We have some of the best scenery in northern Thailand, when you get away from the main roads. Best wishes Ian & Vassana

Chiang Saen, Thailand
Reviewed 21 January 2013

Ian and Vanessa really made us very welcome and we can't recommend this quiet little place highly enough. Chiang Saen is a nice quiet little place, perfect for a get-away-from-it-all type trip but a couple of days is probably enough. Food traditonal Thai was also very good.

Hi Rollo S, Thank you very much for your review. It is most satisfying that you would highly recommend us. It depends what you like, but many people stay here for 4 or 5 days and still wish they had stayed longer, as the reviewer below noted. There are a lot of things to see up here as well as...

I loved the individual bungalows with the view of the lake. The owners are charming and the owner's mother cooks one f the best Thai meals I ever had. Stay here and skip Chaing Rai and go biking hiking and kayaking
