Phumanee Lahu Home Hotel

Fang's undisputed, delightful best

What we say: 4.5 stars

Phumanee Hotel is owned, staffed and run by an enthusiastic group of Black Lahu villagers from a nearby mountain settlement. Rooms are spot on, with big soft beds, large bathrooms and Lahu-chic decorations. There’s a choice of standard or deluxe rooms, with the latter more spacious, and boasting varnished wood floors and wide, comfortable balconies. If you can stretch to it, the deluxe room balconies are wonderful. All have air-con, WiFi, cable TV, minibars and ensuite bathroom with hot shower. The lobby and common areas are full of fascinating information and photographs of the Lahu people's history, traditions and culture, and the on-site restaurant serves Lahu dishes as well as reasonably priced Thai, Chinese and Western fare using, as much as possible, organic produce. Even their tea and coffee is organic, originating from their village on Doi Pumeun. They also offer both Thai and Lahu massage.

From the roof, on a clear day, you can see Doi Pumuen village, where the guesthouse owners’ father was headman. They now offer homestays in the village with different households take turns hosting. You can hang out with the Lahu villagers, learn about their lifestyle, visit their organic farm and take hikes through the surrounding countryside. Staff can let you know the best days to stay in the village as different activities, ceremonies and celebrations take place throughout the year. Transport to and from the village is provided. This is a top spot and a great initiative -- we wished we could find more guesthouses like this one.
