Welcome to Rommai Villa, a traditional Northern Thailand family compound and guest house, located on the northern outskirts of Chiang Rai near Rachabhat University. Our beautiful guest villas are perfectly located away from the noise and commotion of the city, yet only a short drive from everything on offer in Chiang Rai and the surrounding area.

The nearby university lake makes an excellent place for a morning or evening jog or power-walk and can also be cycled using one of our loaner bicycles.

Our family guest house consists of a number of individual villas distributed around beautiful gardens and a central lake with fountains to prevent mosquitoes from breeding. Each is built in the traditional northern Thai style, elevated from the ground on giant hardwood piles. Many were former traditional farm houses, rescued from across the North and North East of the country that have been relocated here. Each has been lovingly restored using polished hardwoods and other traditional materials by local craftsmen. Some are over 100 years old despite termites and a very humid climate in Thailand.

Each villa is furnished with new comfortable modern beds and spacious modern bathrooms, and each is surrounded by a traditional balcony for you to sit together and watch the sun go down with a drink in hand. If relaxation is your aim, then look no further.

Mi Casa Su Casa

Having built and established a number of Bangkok’s top restaurants, the Chantakul family purchased an area of land on the outskirts of Chiang Rai to construct their ideal family country home in which to semi-retire. An extensive and beautifully restored family house was soon joined by other villas for family members – sons, daughters and their own families.

Successful business careers in Bangkok and other far-away cities, means that family members are infrequent visitors to this tranquil escape and as such their villas are available for guests to use  in their absence. Currently, 4 villas are available for guests to enjoy. Each has its own outside seating under a deck and verandah. A Common Area under the main family house serves as a dining area should guests wish to eat breakfast or dinner at the guest house. Free high speed WiFi persists throughout the compound along with ample parking space for guests to use. For those traveling without their own vehicles, a complimentary pickup service will whisk you the ten minutes from the Chiang Rai airport to Rommai Villa and Grab or taxis are plentiful to get you about.
