"Well built and well maintained resort outside Chiang Mai Town. Has good facilities for Yoga meditation and a nice swimming pool. Food was good at the restaurant. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Nice landscape and garden."

"I spent nine days at the resort (called Pavana) on a fasting and detox programme. The programme is very well supported by the welcoming and excellent staff, who explain everything and keep the schedule moving along. The experience was a lot easier than I expected and I've come out of it feeling amazing. The accommodations are excellent, much nicer than I expected, and the setting is lovely. The gardens are particularly nice and the buildings are in a charming Lanna style. Highly recommended!"

"I did the detox fasting program at the resort in February and loved it. The grounds are very well looked after, the rooms are clean and the additional activities the resort offers are great. It is a lovely place to get away from the city life and be close to nature. If this is not what you are looking for then you would be better off staying in Chiang Mai town. All resort staff are super helpful and flexible. Also yoga class with Neil was a treat. I also loved the free meditation classes with Frans every morning and went hiking and did a Mind Science class with him. On my last night we had the campfire and lanterns night which was magical! As I was on the detox program I did not try many dishes but the raw food dishes I did try were delicious. The Spa is great and a much needed addition to the detox program or if you simply want to pumper yourself. As for the Detox fasting program - Dr Tony is great and very clear with his instructions however you need to see him in person to understand what the program involves. I found written information a bit confusing and in need of improvement. Would love to come back again next year!"
