“After 20 years of global travel, this is as good as it gets!!!”

Reviewed 2 May 2013

As fate would have it I was invited to spend a week with friends who I had not seen in many years at this incredible villa. After seeing pics and hearing the desciptions sent to me by my friends to encourage me to join them, I changed my travel plans to make the detour from Japan to Thailand, and it turned out to be one of the best decisions of my life. Wow, what a great location with a perfect mix of everything! From the locations and attractions for all ages in the area to the actual porperty with its incredible food that is served during meals, the view, the wonderful staff, the incredible rooms, the pool, the villa itself, everything was perfect. I have traveled a lot of the world over the past 20 years and can absolutely say this was the best week of "vacation / adventure / culture / relaxation / excitment / luxury" I have ever experienced. Nothing is ever too much trouble, local advice is invaluable and awesome, and the over all sevice from the minute you arrive is world class!! If you have ever wanted to spend a week where you honestly feel like you are being hosted by "family" and you are their favorite relatives and they want to show you their home, their town, their attractions and their culture and make sure you have an amzingly happy week - then this is the place to stay.

Response from the owner Wow Spinner !! A million thanks for your fantastic review! and we are all delighted you had a great holiday at the retreat.Everyone here really appreciate your kind comments and generousity and it was a pleasure having you all as our guests.We certainly hope you'll be back again sometime Many thanks again and best wishes to you and all the family Noel and all the "crew"

“Hands down, the most amazing holiday of our lives…”

Reviewed 24 Apr 2013

As luck would have it, I stumbled upon the most amazing holiday treasure of my life. After corresponding with Noel several times, it became obvious that he was a gentleman who would go to great lengths to ensure our holiday was something extraordinary - he did not disappoint. Traveling across the world with three young children is a daunting endeavor but we all survived in grand fashion and are better for it. My family of five joined two other families with young children and another friend (14 total in the group). In short, the most magnificent part of our vacation was our stay at Doi Luang Villa and our interaction with the staff, some of the nicest and most accommodating people we've ever met. Upon arrival, we were greeted by Wheng, Ding, Noy, Luk, and Loy. The Villa is even more beautiful than portrayed in the photographs and the view is absolutely stunning. Upon arrival, the children quickly made their way to the saltwater pool, a journey that happened several times a day! Every day, Wheng asked what time we would like our meals and had it on the table, ready to go, at the exact time! One day, the staff went out to the local countryside and found a fresh honeycomb and brought it back for us to sample; the next day, the children had pancakes with fresh honey for breakfast! Each day, the staff went to the local markets and/or country side and secured fresh fruit, vegetables, fish, and meat for the meals we asked asked them to prepare. Most times, we left the meals to Wheng's discretion as he was consistently able to choose and prepare something spectacular (hint: each meal, except for breakfast, seemed to taste even better with a 52 baht LEO or Singha!). Each and every morning, the staff cleaned the entire villa and pool. In addition, the laundry service was extremely helpful. We definitely plan to return and look forward to seeing our friends at the Doi Luang Villa, again.

Response from the owner Wow Mike !! Many thanks for spending so much time writing your great review. It was a real pleasure to have you, your family and friends come to stay at the retreat and we look forward to you all coming back again, Best wishes to everyone from all the "crew" Noel

“Incredible”

Reviewed 27 Dec 2012

I can't recommend the Chiang Dao Mountain View Chateau highly enough. The views were simply breathtaking and the house and grounds were meticulously looked after, we felt very special indeed being able to spend a week here. Don't hesitate to book some time here, don't hesitate to ask Noel (the owner) to ask Luk (the housekeeper) to cook for you, and don't hesitate to arrange for bonfires under the stars, you'll love everything about the place! On a side note, Noel was spectacularly helpful when we drove back down from Chiang Dao to Chiang Mai airport on our last day and had forgotten our passports. He had no hesitation in making arrangements for them to be driven down and delivered to us at the airport. We missed our midday flight but managed one a couple of hours later, and we're eternally grateful for the help and kindness shown in our 'hour of need'!

Response from the owner Dear John,Kate,Elliot and Natalie, Many many thanks for your great review! It was our pleasure to have you as our guests and we hope you'll be able to come back again soon Best wishes for the New Year From all the "crew"

“Amazing get-away. Beautiful.”

Reviewed 18 Nov 2012

We recently stayed at the chateau for two nights -- and really hope to return! The house is quite spectacular. Brand new, spacious, comfortably decorated with a perfectly manicured garden and very lovely pool. The mountain views are breathtaking. The house can easily accommodate 3 families. Meals were prepared by the chef and the Thai food was delicious. Kuhn Mon drove the van for us and was very accommodating and helped us navigate nearby things to do. Notes for next time: The house would benefit from a little guide about the area -- local walks, recommendations for outings (we nearly passed up Chiang Dao cave, for example, but it was really great to see). Our meals were all beautifully prepared, but next time I'll probably bring in more snacks for cocktail hour and to keep our children content (the Tesco in Chiang Dao is pretty limited). Also, there is soap at the house, but you'll need to bring your own shampoo, etc. (this is to be expected when you are renting a private house, but it's worth a reminder when packing). Spending the nights sitting under the stars with an open fire was really wonderful. We loved watching the morning mist on the mountains. Really, it is a highly recommended get-away for quiet relaxation in a beautiful, serene environment -- with every modern amenity (dvd player was useful for the kids and there is wi-fi too).

Response from the owner Many thanks for your great review Michele. It was our pleasure having you as our guests and we hope you'll all be back again soon Best wishes from all the "crew" Noel

“Wonderful family trip!”

Reviewed 10 Nov 2012

We had a wonderful time and experience at this country villa! The location was beautiful and peaceful with a magnificent mountain view. The children enjoyed their playtime in the salt water pool and in the yard, and we did too. The villa was conveniently located, close to the small town and close to day trip site seeing to a national park and caves. The Wonderful staff showed attention to our needs quietly and the chef prepared fabulous thai food for us each day. He took the time to accommodate the simple tastes of the children, too. Highly recommended for anyone!

Response from the owner Dear Valerie Many thanks for spending the time to send us your great review.It was our pleasure to have you and all your family as our guests and we very much look forward to you coming back again Best wishes to everyone Noel and all the "crew"

“exceptional holiday in every way”

Reviewed 5 Nov 2012

The house is incredible, beautiful, and well appointed. It is set in the country among small farms and a short drive into a great little country town. You can sit on the porch and watch the mountain change, swim in the salt water pool, walk to hot springs, or drive to caves, temples, and markets. All in all, the house and location are wonderful but what set it apart for us was the staff. They were exceptional. The food was amazing, the chef is excellent...we never went out to eat! The other staff were kind, fun, present if we wanted or needed them and yet had a knack for leaving us alone as well. They were encredibly flexible in meeting our needs. My husband and I enjoyed getting to know them and learning some of the language, how to cook a few things, etc. I couldn't recommend the house and staff more highly. Thank you for a lovely holiday!!

Response from the owner Dear Dianne Many many thanks for your wonderful review.We are all very grateful for the many kind comments you have made and delighted you had a wonderful holiday.

“Amazing vacation in an exceptional location”

Reviewed 23 Oct 2012

We absolutely loved our stay at this mountain "hideaway". The house has a breathtaking view of the mountains. The house is very well built and furnished, and Noel and the staff take care of your every need. A great restful holiday for anyone wanting to escape the ratrace, and an exceptional holiday location for families. Spelunking, bike riding, visiting the elephants, stargazing, ziplining and relaxing by the fire at night. Who could ask for a better holiday? I can't recommend this place enough!

“Stunning in every sense”

Reviewed 9 Nov 2011

This property cetainly has the 'Wow' factor. Everything about the accommodation and our stay was perfect. The location-private, peaceful with beautiful gardens and wonderful views of the mountains. The small town of Chiang Dao is only a 5min drive away. It is also a great base for exploring northern Thailand. The house is extremely comfortable with every amenity. It is beautifully constructed and decorated with great attention to detail. We would definitely recommend retaining the services of the chef as the food and service we received were amazing. Mr Hunt and the staff were wonderful. My Husband and I have cant wait to return to this beautiful place hopefully with our family next time.

Response from the owner Dear Janice and Jim Many thanks for your very kind comments and we certainly look forward to having your whole family stay the next time. Best wishes Jan Gino Noel and all the "team"
