De Wiangkumkam is a very good find among several cute mini-resort style places tucked away in Chiang Mai's leafy suburbs.

As the name implies it’s located within Wiang Khum Kham ancient city—a maze of quiet garden-lined lanes and ruined temples—just beyond Chiang Mai’s superhighway to the south, and only a 10-minute or so drive to the centre. The extremely friendly and helpful owner offers guests lifts into town free of charge, though you will have to grab a tuk tuk back (for 150 to 200 baht per trip).

For anyone after a quiet, village-like location without going way out of town, De Wiangkumkam has a cute pool and garden, making it a good choice. To the left as you arrive is the pool, surrounded by a seating area amid wooden garden furniture and plenty of plants. Beyond a two-storey building has a huge family room upstairs, and their office and mini-gym down. To the right is reception and a cute dining area above, behind which are another nine rooms set in a two-storey brick and wood building. Further back again, a separate bamboo-clad, single-storey building contains a further four rooms. Decor is rustic style with Lanna flourishes but it's all very tasteful and restrained.

Interiors offer polished concrete, bare bricks and old-style wooden fittings. Ground floor rooms may be slightly dark but all do come with private balconies. They also have ensuite hot shower bathrooms and toiletries plus bathrobe, safe, cable TV, fridge, air-con, WiFi and tea and coffee so, considering the rates, it's a very good deal indeed. Breakfast and an airport pick-up are also included. Particularly good value is the huge two-room family suite overlooking the pool, which sleeps up to six and also includes breakfast. They are not so well decorated as the smaller rooms but there are not too many rooms this size for a similar price around town.

You are slightly in the middle of nowhere and there’s not too much around, except for the above-mentioned ruined temples, but the in-house cafe and restaurant is good quality and reasonably priced. Bicycles are also available for guests to explore the area.
