Steve has a wonderful swimming pool which really has 20M long, and even it is more longer than other standard hotel. Also I am very enjoy his family cinema whcih has more than 300+ DVD from world wild, meanwhile you can play your own digiltal movie by USB .
This is a small and quiet village in north of the Thailand, and the most of the young people go to big city in Thailand, so left the old people and children in there, and all of the local people are full of smile to us .
Our family has already plan come back the villa again next year....
First of all, Lana Thai villa isn't located in the busier part of Chiang Rai which perhaps may be inconvenient for some. But that aside, Steve and Sermsri's hospitality and friendliness more than made up for that.
For those looking for a really quiet time can just while their time away at his bungalow. What can I say, it's nicely decorated, well-kept and it comes with a good sized swimming pool and deck chairs for those looking for a good swim or tan!
For those who are worried that it's hard to look for places to eat can rest assure that meal is not only taken care of, it's wonderful enough to fill any hungry stomach thanks to Sermsri's wonderful cooking skills.
So for those who are looking for a quiet place to stay and relax, Lana Thai villa should definitely be one of the very first place to consider!
