    Great family getaway place!”

    I randomly booked this place for my family trip to Chiang Mai. The way in might be a bit adventurous and mysterious since it’s right in the hills. However we were welcomed by the nice staffs. The scenery and overall area are awesome. I love the corn field and cute buildings around. And not too far out, there’re many elephant sanctuaries. We spent some times there by the river. The night can get pretty cold ( way colder than during the day) but you will wake up by the beautiful corn & rice field with great weather! I highly recommend!!!

    Interesting location of this place, it is situation at the foot of the hills which can be very cooling in the night. Away from the city where there is no of any air condition in the night. Rooms r clean enough for most people with great gas heated shower to warm you up in the night.

    A bit old, costly but serene to stay”

    A bit old resort and expensive for staying against the backdrop that there is not too many facilities in the room. Not many people stay there, that's why they keep the cost high. The good side is that the place is very quiet and very close to Wat Luang Khun Win, this is the main reason why I choose this place to stay.

    Incredibly beautiful and staff are amazing!”

    I had a great stay at Karen Eco Lodge, so much so that I extended my stay here! The staff are incredibly friendly and happy to help in any way they can to make your stay as engaging or relaxing as you'd like it to be. The grounds themselves are GORGEOUS with verdant green hillsides and lovely water features throughout. Trees are everywhere and there are plenty of little places to just sit and relax while you enjoy the sun and sounds of the birds and the whistling of the wind through tree leaves. If you want peace and relaxation where you can unplug for a while then this is absolutely a great place to go where you will be away from the distractions of the world. In fact, you'll be forced to as cellular service and internet connectivity can be spotty at times. With that said, being able to unplug for a bit was exactly what I needed. Looking forward to returning the next time I feel like some gentle country quiet.
