“Bring a Good Book”

Spa Ban Sabai
You’re isolated, kilometers from food, transportation, points of interest. Big menu, but were out of juice, appetizer and entrée that we tried to order from it. There is no other restaurant available. We wanted their cooking class. But that’s for rehabilitation patients only. It’s a spa. Our suite had its own Jacuzzi. But it did not work. The sauna was inoperable. Fixed overhead shower lacks water pressure, and water goes onto the bathroom floor. On a Saturday night in March 2009, no guests came to dinner. Sunday breakfast no guests, no conversations. No CNN on TV. I can recommend the one hour stone massage for 3,700 baht. After that, we had no reason to remain. We forfeited the rest of our stay and left.
“Decent hotel .... great staff!”

Stayed here for a few nights in March and thoroughly enjoyed it. Stayed in a Blue Diamond Suite which had nice big windows letting in lots of light (thick curtains ensure you're not woken at dawn!). Bed was a little soft but nothing to really moan about. Mini-bar selection was decent, free mineral water, free wi-fi. Swimming pool small but nice for a cooling dip. Restaurant served tasty food and does a good English breakfast. Hotel is located a little outside the hustle and bustle of main Chiang Mai but they offer comp shuttle to the night market and you can get a tuk tuk for a few hundred baht back. But the best thing about this hotel are the staff. On the way to the airport to fly down to Phuket, I forgot my dive bag with my regulators in the car. I called them from Phuket and within 2days they had arranged for the bag to be picked up from the hotel, packaged and sent by courier to me. They then phoned me to make sure I had received the bag ok. This example was consistent with the great service we encountered during our entire stay with them. Nothing was too much for them and we found ourselves judging every other hotel we stayed in Thailand against the Ban Sabai staff.
“A place you will consider home”
Mar 28, 2009 TheVillaGuy, Austin, Texas
While on a busy business trip in Thailand and hitting 'high-gear', I fell and broke my foot. Finding myself stuck in a luxurious but lifeless business hotel room in Bangkok, and in a cast, I was forced to ask myself the question, "stay or return home?" Although my elaborate work/travel plan and itinerary was now in the trash, I decided to stay. I am SO glad I did. By chance I discovered Ban Sabai Spa Village in Chiang Mai - it seemed like a very nice boutique hotel/spa in the pictures and a comfortable place to relax for a few days. I ended up spending nearly 3 weeks there. The words "hotel", "resort", or "spa" are difficult to speak when I talk about my visit to Ban Sabai and my experience there. It was a sanctuary and a retreat. My experience there changed me (mainly the staff - they are amazing). Also I did the detox. It was incredible. Yes, the hotel is 5 stars in every category. And although there are many 5-star 'spa resorts' in Thailand, Ban Sabai is different. How is it different? Well, perhaps describing my stay at Ban Sabai and my story will dilute the mystery of what may lie ahead in your story. So I'll just say if it is an "experience" of Thailand you are seeking, a total reset and story set deep within yourself and the culture, then put Ban Sabai on the top of your list. Let them take care of you. Go and let go. Why am I writing this now? It has been several months, my cast is off, and I'm ready to go back! Truly, it feels like preparing to visit family. I can't wait. Have a great time on your trip, and please tell Matthias and the staff that Scott said "hello"!
“An Oasis within a Paradise”
Feb 11, 2009 marauder56, South Australia
This would be my 3rd trip to Thailand - but my 1st to Chaing Mai.
Having decided that my accommodation would be bungalow style within a tropical garden setting [spoilt from my experience with Somkiet Buri in Ao Nang] I decided that Ban Sabai Village & Spa would be my choice.
The accommodation was absolutely 1st class and the staff were friendly, respectful, courteous and most helpful. Even the owner was a pleasure to deal with. Aor, my masseuse for the week, was excellent in both demeanour and the quality of massage provided. The reception and service staff were a pleasure to deal with.
The surrounding gardens were kept both lush and well manicured.
The food served up in the restaurant was of the highest quality, and the associated cost was more than reasonable.
I certainly wouldn't hesitate in returning to this resort and would recommend it to anyone.
The resort is about 5 kilometres from Chiang Mai city, with a setting that is both quiet and peaceful.

We visited here over the Song Kran holiday. The hotel was lovely and the staff great. Although the car that was meant to pick us up from the airport never arrived it was no problem and actually cheaper to get a taxi. The facilities at the hotel are good, very clean and comfortable, the restaurant is quite good too, with excellent service.
The only real complaint (Not really a complaint) is the distance from the city and the added cost of having to get taxis and/or a driver each day, not an issue if you want a secluded and relaxed place to stay. There is a complimentary car service at 6pm every evening into the city. It is probably best suited if you hire a car or take your own.
Although the pool is not as big as the picture on the website makes out we had a great stay and would most likely stay again provided we hired a car.
