Secret Garden should be a must-stay for anyone in Chiang Mai - even if it's just for one night. So green, lush and peaceful. The owners are the sweetest hosts - Pai's cooking is heavenly. We suggest you stay for dinner every night that you stay - you're not going to get it better anywhere else.

We have the sweetest and most thoughtful guests! We can't thank all of you enough for all the support and love throughout the years.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW

We stayed at the Secret Garden for 7 nights and had the most amazing time. Isobel, Peter and Pai made us feel welcome from the start and took great care in looking after us, we felt like guests rather than customers. While in the hotel we borrowed the complimentary bikes to cycle the short distance through the village and to...

Hi Michael, Thanks for taking the time and effort to write something on here for us! We really appreciate everyone single review, knowing that you took the time out of your day to do something for us, is so very special. We have the best guests!

Peter, Pai and their daughter, Isabel, make you feel like you're staying with a family rather than in a hotel. They have done a beautiful job creating this tropical paradise and their warmth and hospitality makes your stay even more special. And, I can say with all honesty that Pai's cooking was the best food we had in our two...

It is a shame this place is so hard to find on Trip Advisor. It should be the first place to come up when searching for the best value for money accommodation in Thailand. There is nothing the owners and staff will not do for you. They cook amazing meals and help you with your whole holiday. You can arrive...

We can't say enough good about Secret Garden. The owners, Phai and Peter, and daughter Isabel, are warm and friendly, and willing to help guests in any way they can. They go out of their way to make each guest feel special and at home. Phai picked us up at the train station in Chiang Mai and Peter drove us...

Hi there, first of, Thank you for the wonderful, and informative review! It gets a little difficult after a while to write responses to reviews, without repeating yourself.

Secret Garden is certainly the best place we have been during a voyage through Northern Thailand and Laos! A warm welcome for every guest, good food, a beautiful garden and nice bungalows are the ingredients for a nice stay. We stayed here our first week and never felt more welcome. So we booked 3 more days before our return flight....

Secret Garden is the best family resort in Chiang Mai. We stayed all over the city with our toddler, and to be honest it was challenging. However, Secret Garden Resort was like a welcoming second home for our family and they welcomed our young, noisey son with open arms. Isabel went above and beyond for our little family, helping in...

Hi Mel, Clive and River!
