A convenient location, lovely garden, super friendly staff members and a wide and fine selection of accommodation makes Chiang Dao Hut Resort our clear favourite in the area.

A long-standing address, management appear to have made a big effort to revamp the interiors since our last visit and have opened a coffee shop out front as well as their own restaurant across the road. Located close to Chiang Dao Nest 2 and The Cave, it’s an easy walk to either of those for a meal or drink and a few conveniently placed independent cafes add to your choice. The caves themselves are a short walk back down the road towards town and Chiang Dao town is around six to seven kilometres away.

There are plenty of pleasant seating areas in a sprawling garden set right at the foot of the mountain with wood and bamboo, straw-roofed chalets scattered amidst the lush vegetation. The choice of rooms starts with small, budget chalets with shared bathrooms progressing—in quality and price—to en-suite chalets, large superior versions and deluxe bamboo bungalows. There is also a large stilt house with several bedrooms and sleeping up to ten persons on offer for larger groups.

All rooms are spick and span and even the cheapest chalets are clean and well-maintained as were communal bathroom facilities. All possess private balconies too and though the rooms are only fan-cooled there are not many months in the year when you’d really air-con in these parts. En-suite rooms are a significant step up with a better size of rooms and a few more furniture options, while their recently added, top of the range “bamboo” or deluxe chalets are bright, airy, well-furnished and without a doubt the best-decorated rooms we saw anywhere in Chiang Dao.

Smart decor!

With no seasonal supplements, their rates are very good value at any time of year with the deluxe chalets at 1,200 baht being one of the best high season deals in Chiang Dao.

The funky coffee shop out front next to the reception serves up a good brew and the terrace is a great spot to sip your morning expresso while reception and its helpful staff have the usual information and maps available as well as offering bicycles and motorbikes for 100 baht and 300 baht daily—if they run out, The Cave is right next door. They’ve also made an effort with their purpose built restaurant, named Chiang Dao Hug, on the opposite side of the road which offers standard Thai fare at reasonable prices plus several Western options as well as even a few bottled craft beers.

Overall this is a highly recommended spot, but it is popular in high season so book in advance.
