A beautiful and serene resort for peace- and nature-loving travelers

“We just returned from a 4-nights stay at the beautiful Rice & Zen resort in Doi Saket district, which is no more than 30km away from the Chiang Mai international airport. Our host, Michael, who is also a resident on the resort is very welcoming and warm. We could see that he runs this resort […]

A gem of a hotel

Beautiful quiet resort not far from the liveliness of Chaweng. A very personal service from the best staff ever, who used our first names. Great breakfast & fabulous food, especially the set menu on Weds.

Chill & Relax There is a Must

“My 2nd time and still loving it. Very friendly and helpfull team working in a cosy and elegant atmosphere. Nice & confortable pool villa. Just what u need to escape few days and be far from the crowds. Stop by u would not be disapointed! Caro”


“Seadance resort provided a very laid back and relaxing experience for us from the minute we arrived. The location is fairly quiet but a short cab ride will get you to anything the island has to offer, if that’s what you want. The rooms were spacious and comfortable, the food in the restaurant excellent (great […]

The pool is beautiful with wonderful ocean views. Rooms clean and comfortable. If you like swimming in the sea, this is not the place for you. If swimming […]

Garden of Eden

We stayed for 4 nights at Rice and Zen boutique resort. The word boutique doesn’t do justice to the tranquil, serene environment that engulfs you as soon as you land there. Michael has created a small paradise away from the city hustle and bustle. It’s tucked away in the midst of rice paddies and the […]

A gem of a place

“It is no wonder Sea-dance has won so many awards! This small boutique hotel is the perfect escape from the bustling crowds of nearby towns like Bophut, Fisherman’s Village, Chaweng and Bangrak. However, a quick taxi ride can be organized by the hotel or by using the company just outside the gates. We stayed in […]

If you need a place to forget time

“Imagine classical music playing while you are having delicious homemade breakfast , watching the green fields and mountains looming over the horizon. Imagine privacy, luxury and great hospitality combined, as you relax in a refreshing pool and bath in the sun. Imagine, different spots within the resort that you could slow down, read a book, […]
