A big wow for this place! There’s so much more to Thailand beyond the beaches. This Treehouse Resort not far from Chiang Mai has some unique cottages. We enjoyed teak forests, two caves and red dunes. So, not only was the accommodation in its kind. Nature nearby was a treat – indeed some of the most pristine teak forests near Chiang Mai can be found here.
The Rabaeng resort is a family-owned treehouse resort created by Mr Bullsiri Suwannach, a retired architect. It started as a family vacation home in 2010. Then it was opened for the public in 2012.
Promotion in January 2021 stood at 1500 baht per night(small cottage), including breakfast. (This price won’t last when tourism returns to Thailand) When you contact the resort, I would recommend using Facebook messenger for a fast reply. The management will ask you to select the kind of Treehouse you prefer. The houses all have an individual name.
There are very few cottages(6 small and 2 families sized) so it is easy to keep the distance relevant during the pandemic.
We stayed at the Palm house because my daughter wanted a balcony with a riverview.
In January the night’s might get kind of cold. 6-9 degrees Celsius in South East Asia can be chilly.
Bring some extra clothes and do enjoy the opportunity to have a campfire during night time.
