Good place to enjoy wild nature”

It’s an amazing spot for nature lover. The room is a bit dusty and old aircon’s a bit noisy but we are still happy with the staying. The early morning mist and the Mae Khong sunset is a must to see. The food is excellent. The room up the hill requires a bit of walking up. If you have a knee problem or just lazy for work out than the river view bungalow is recommended. I’ll come back here again.

Nice Place In Nature”

We spent 4 nights at rai Saeng Arun and loved it. The food was delicious and they very easily made vegetarian food upon request. The views were great and we even caught many breezes from the outdoor restaurant and the riverside room patio. The staff were incredibly kind and helpful. The property also had a well-maintained vegetable garden that we admired at each meal. We stayed on the river but also checked out the rooms on the hill. If we come back, we will try a room on the hill for another perspective. The resort rooms are divided into two sections; three small rooms on the river and the rest of the rooms across the road on a hillside a couple hundred meters from the restaurant. The rooms along the river have breezes off the river along with a partially covered patio and day bed which protects from the sun in the morning hours. One thing to consider about the riverside rooms is that they are located across from a karaoke bar on the Laotian side—which of the 4 nights we were there, played music for 3 of those nights. Saturday night, the music was exceptionally loud, while the other nights were more tolerable. This is not the resort’s fault and they were really understanding and supportive of us wanting to move rooms because of the noise, though we chose not to because it got quieter each night. The rooms located on the hillside are quieter, larger and more private but most do not have views of the mountains in Laos and the river. The exception is room D1 which has the best view from the hillside. D2 and S1 also have partial views. Rooms on the hillside have a large balcony but do not have balcony cover from the sun—so you won’t be able to sit out there for long. Oh and the vegetarian spring rolls from the restaurant were the best spring rolls I’ve had living in Asia for almost a decade. Ordered them 4 days in a row. Highly recommend this hotel.

No restaurant or drinks service after 5.30pm. Pre order food only. Rooms not located at river side.”

As a smart dressed, solo motorcycle touring rider. I was asked to move my motorcycle parking 3 times from a location already said ok by the hotel staff. Final location for parking insisted on by the owner was surrounded by piles and bags of building debris. And as far away as possible from the room location on the other side of the road. Very inconvenient for carrying luggage from the bike to the room. Was told NO restaurant service would be available after 5.30pm so was asked to pre-order food at 3.30pm on arrival. The rooms were not located at the river side or with riverside views. Very disappointed by the lack of service and facilities available. And by how I was treated by the owner. Finally I refused to stay choosing instead to ride on to Chiang Khong instead where I easily found much better and more affordable acdomadation. This hotel is appalingly bad. I recommend DO NOT stay here.

wonderful to stay in these bungalows”

very natural, rural, queitness

from the first to the last minute we praised this resort, it's location. A bit far away over 165 steps to reach the bungalows in the bamboo forest is an exercise, but a positive, especially to enjoy the greatly prepared dinner on the Mekong Terrace Restaurant. The owner has to be praised not to be too greedy and construct hundreds of rooms even there would be space on his vaste land. Smiling staff, everybody so friendly, a great joy to stay in Rai Saeng Arun.

Nice view, close to nature, friendly staff

We stayed at Seang Arun villa for 1 night. The room has amazing view on the mountain overlooking Mae Khong river. Though it was a bit of walking through rice fields and up the mountain to get there, but the view worth all those hard work. Staffs are very helpful and friendly, we had dinner and breakfast at our balcony to enjoy our view at max. Room is clean and bed is quite comfy. All in all, we enjoy our stay at Rai Seang Arun.

Back to Nature, beautiful landscape unpretentious”

Proximty to Chiang Kong for border crossing, tranquil setting and fab food

We arrived after a lengthy car journey from Chiang Rai. The view of the Mighty Mekong and Laos were breath taking. Even though the river was very high the hotel position felt very safe. We ordered a gorgeous lunch and then had a explore around the surrounding area. Evening meal is served promptly around 18:30pm and after such a large lunch it would have been nice if it had been just an hour later. Once dinner is finished it is a matter of making your way back to your room for the night. If you are worried about the dark or not steady on your feet consider asking for a room not up in the hills and take your own torch as two are better than one!

Beautiful located hotel in stunning surroundings”

I liked the pristine atmosphere and surroundings.

The hotel is located right on the banks of the Mekong river, facing Laos on the other side. The freestanding bungalows are located on the side of the mountain in a beautiful bamboo forrest. The walk from the lobby and restaurant to the bungalows is a little steep if you are not fit, the staff carried the luggage up the hill. If you are not fit ask for a room on the river side. The walk to the bungalows is first through the hotels own rice fields and vegetable gardens. They grow everything themselves and are particular about the maintenance, no chemical sprays are used, in other words, the restaurant serves the best fresh vegetables. Staff and manager are very friendly and helpfull. If you use the google map, make sure to go to the second marking on the map, coming from Chiang Khong, as there are 2 locations on the map, a little confusing, but this way no problem getting there. If you love nature and quiet this is the place. The town is about 25 km away, so you have to eat at the hotel restaurant, which is very good.
