Ian and the rest of the staff were wonderful for our weekend stay. Friendly, hospitable, and kind, they offered great restaurant and sightseeing recommendations and took excellent care of us and our energetic toddler. Mae Mai Gardens' grounds and pool are absolutely lovely. The art, trees, plants, and fish provide excellent outlets for clearing one's mind and refreshing one's soul....

Jennifer - many thanks for this great review. It was a real pleasure to meet you, Jason and Jenson, and we're so pleased that you enjoyed your time with us. One of the advantages of being a small place is that we can offer a more personal service for our guests. We enjoy meeting new people. Best wishes, Ian.

A wonderful four night stay at Mae Nai Gardens, and a welcome break between Singapore and Chang Mai to recharge our batteries. The gardens are absolutely beautiful and there are art works everywhere, adding to the tranquil ambiance of the place. Convenient for the Botanic Gardens (where we spent two days walking around), and other activities. Villas are private and...

Hosts excellent. Gardens and design excellent. Individual bungalows excellent, stayed in two. Each is different with its own charm. Pool is amazing. Free bikes if you like. Big fish in pond. Don't hesitate to ask for recommendations from owners. Their suggestions are excellent, and thoughtfully offered. I stayed several days longer than planned. Quiet secluded and relaxing.
