Resort Overview

Big hitter, the monk. Actually, not really. But Khruba Siwichai, who lived at the turn of the 19th century, was an esteemed Buddhist monk, and this resort sits on his former hermitage. No wonder the meditative mood of the surrounds, in an unspoiled setting that combines fresh air and friendly service with long views of a mountainous northern Thai landscape. For all the tranquility of atmosphere, the golf itself can be pulse-pounding, on three dramatic, water-strewn nines that invite bold lines and heroic shot-making. After the exhilaration of a round comes ample opportunity for relaxation in the steam room, swimming pool, sauna or an Aveda-inspired massage that offers a full menu of soothing treatments.

The restaurant’s menu features an array of deliciously prepared Northern Thai specialities.
