Votre hôte et l'équipe
“Northern Thailand is a blessed region – with nature, food, and the root of the Thai sense of aesthetics and creativity. This area allows one to experience what old Thailand and true Thai culture is about. The Rose of the North’s way of life is still intact here. We want to share it with the world through our eyes, our approach, and our sense of hospitality.”
