Ruang Tawan Hideaway was absolutely perfect! My friends and I stayed for 4 nights, and we could have happily stayed for 7. The yellow house was beautiful, and the staff were so friendly and accommodating! Homemade breakfast every morning by the lovely On really made all the difference.. A perfect and homely stay. Would highly recommend and cannot wait to go back!
Simply perfect location and perfect hosts...we will be back!! Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Chiang Mai, suggest if you're reading this that you make that choice too!!
Our stay at the hideaway was idyllic! We stayed in the Yellow Cottage and it was everything we'd hope for from the pictures. The cottage is decorated with great taste and personality and a very romantic place to stay! The Ruang Tawan is very unique and certainly somewhere we'd recommended if visiting Chiang Mai. Although a little out the way of the main town it's easily accessible by taxi. The hosts Raluque and Paul were exceptional, they made is feel completely at home and went above and beyond their duties to ensure we had the best stay possible. The complimentary breakfast was really tasty and the onsite cafe is certainly worth the visit for some gorgeous cakes and shakes! All in all a fantastic stay!
Loved our stay at the Yellow House! Beautiful property that is secluded yet easily accessible to the Old City and other day trips (check to see if Udom is available to be about guide). Paul and Ja are first-rate hosts who had great recommendations about what to do while we were there. Also the best croissants I've ever had and the open air rotunda is an excellent place to lounge and read. When the pool is built I can't imagine a better value for your time in Chiang Mai.
What a delightful warm welcome from our hosts. The resort is beautiful, we were impressed by all the little touches, our room was very comfortable and super spacious. The Thai food supper was some of the best Thai food we have been lucky enough to eat. We would highly recommend the dinner at the hideaway. The breakfast was a delicious surprise and happily received. The hosts are epic, even kind enough to drive us to the delicious David's kitchen, which is also a must visit. The secret cafe has a simple yet yummy menu, also on-site for convenience. We will be coming back when the swimming pool is finished!!!
She's the best! My boyfriend and I brought his parents to the hideaway while they were visiting from overseas, and we LOVED it. The ambiance, friendliness, gorgeous settings, stunning homes and healthy, home cooked meals made the trip feel like a home away from home. It was my BFs birthday, and Ja even baked a cake and helped us to celebrate.
Its slightly out of the city, but we rented a car (1,000 baht daily) and found the location perfect - equidistant to the city centre and doi suthep and the mountains. I wouldnt bother staying in the city - youll be dealing with tourists and traffic. Staying at the hideaway gives you easy access to main points of attraction, but a sanctuary of peace and relaxation. I cant wait to go back :)

About the Host, Raluque
I'm from Bangkok and went to school in England. I have a degree in ceramics but my true passion is cooking, especially baking! I went on a cooking course in Ballymaloe near Cork, Ireland a few years ago and now I have my own cafe in Chiang Mai. I love eating out, music and films.
