Chiang Dao Nest Reviews

We can fill this website with what we think, and include as many superlatives and as much PR waffle as possible, but what really matters is what our guests think. Please see above and below for links to reviews on other sites...
(Not all are positive, but I think by reading a good number of them you can get a reasonable overview of what to expect, and most are ok. We don't want people to have false impressions of what we offer. We do take on board the criticisms, even though it is sometimes very difficult, whether they are about prices, food, service, owners attitude(!), etc.. Lack of a response from us to good and bad reviews on sites like Tripadvisor does not mean that we don't care, or that we are too arrogant to bother, we just choose not to respond to them in the public domain.)

"Simply Outstanding. ... While the bungalows are excellent, the food here is extraordinary and wouldn't be out of place in a flash European restaurant in Bangkok. The menu prices may be a shock to a backpacker budget, but believe us, the dishes are worth every single satang."

Our Pick - Chiang Dao Nest (restaurant) - A fusion restaurant that makes Bangkok look parochial, the Nest's restaurant serves sophisticated European food in a relaxed garden setting.

" For a back-to-nature experience, this remote little resort can't be beaten. Chalets cluster at the foot of Chiang Dao's spectacular mountain, so great upland views are guaranteed. The chalets are simple but clean, and visitors don't stay long in their rooms anyway - the stunning surrounding countryside offers unlimited walking and biking trails. ... Wicha, runs the best restaurant between Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai. ." Fodors Chiang Dao Nest Review here ...

"Things to do in Chiang Dao: ...
... Treat yourself to a delicious meal at Chiang Dao Nest: This mini resort is raved about by travel reviewers and rightly so! Set in a beautiful location, serving some of the best food in Northern Thailand (so some would say!) the Chiang Dao Nest really does live up to its reputation. Although more expensive than the average bamboo hut in Northern Thailand, a night here will hardly break the bank at around 400 baht per person and you can also try the slightly less exclusive but equally as friendly Nest 2 Resort." southeastasiabackpacker.com Chiang Dao page ...

"Chef Wicha has two restaurants within walking distance of one another. One serving inventive “western” food and the other offering creative Northern Thai cuisine all sourced from local organic ingredients.  We started with the western restaurant, delighting with the taste of delicate pumpkin soup, crispy duck in sesame sauce and slow-cooked tender lamb."

"Chiang Dao Nest at night was warm and romantic. The main area/lobby/restaurant was tastefully done up in soft, yellow lights and the climate dropped to a nice, chilly temperature (we were told 16 to 19 degrees). It was the perfect tranquil and beautiful place to be, and I felt happy. Peacefully, blissfully happy like I hadn’t been in a while." More ...
