Baan Sammi Nature Resort is situated on the edge of the village, Ban Pa Yang Poi, in a beautiful rural landscape. Huge rice-fields, numerous irrigation ditches, canals and some streams hemmed by natural vegetation, scattered small rural villages with wooden houses and farm gardens are characteristic features of this not much developed landscape.

For trips, a motorbike can be hired (150 Baht per day). A pick-up service can be offered, e.g. for transport to and from airport, railway and bus station (750 Baht by car or song-thaeo, 250 Baht by motorbike). Trips by car and pickup with a driver can be arranged, e.g. individual one-day tour from 1,500 Baht up.

Public transport is available from Baan Sammi to the city and back, but it is inconvenient, time-consuming and limited from early morning to about 8 p.m. In order to avoid a feeling of getting trapped in paradise, we strongly recommend having your own bicycle, motorbike or car, which can be rented through Baan Sammi or in the city.

High-speed internet (WLAN) is unlimited and free. It is accessible indoor and throughout the garden.

Breakfast (standard and special, Thai and Western) is available at extra charge. We do not run a restaurant, but can offer Thai meals if ordered one day in advance.

We also offer a delivery service, especially for food, ready food, drinks and other things that you wish to have available in your accommodation upon arrival. This service is free-of-charge provided we receive your order one or two days in advance.

The deep big pond can be used for swimming and boating, but is not recommended for non-swimmers. Fishing in this pond with a fishing-rod is possible, too, and you need your own fishing equipment. Access to the pond is allowed by pier only. Two row boats are available free.

The natural garden has areas suitable for barbecue.




Baan Sammi is located about 10 miles (15 km) northeast of town, in Doi Saket district. Follow the Highway 118 (Chiang Mai - Doi Saket - Chiang Rai). Let's meet us at well-known 'Horizon' (= Suan Taweechon) at km 11 on that highway, for further guidance.

In the arrival hall, there is a desk where you can hire a taxi. The fares from the airport are fixed depending on distance. To Doi Saket district, where Baan Sammi is situated, the price is 550 Baht.
Alternatively, you may get a red song-thaeo or a tuk-tuk at a somewhat lower price.
