Baan Sammi Nature Resort is situated between two rural villages. Huge rice-fields, numerous irrigation ditches, canals and some streams hemmed by natural vegetation, scattered small rural villages with wooden houses and farm gardens are characteristic features of this not much developed landscape.
This area is part of the Chiang Mai intermountain basin, a widely broadened valley of the Ping River, little more than 300 meters above sea-level. The basin is about 25 kilometers wide and delimited by the western mountain range (foothills of Doi Suthep bordering the City of Chiang Mai), eastern mountain range (foothills bordering the district village of Doi Saket), and northern hills (beyond San Sai and Doi Saket with the Mae Kuang Dam). The hills and mountains can be seen from the resort at clear sight, nearly every day except on hazy days during hot season.
Baan Sammi, and the access roads to Chiang Mai and Doi Saket, are located in an area which is not prone to flood.
Small shops for daily life supply can be found in all villages around, the closest shop is 50 m distant, other shops are about 2 km distant). Local markets, open daily or on certain days of the week, can be found in Ban Pa Pong, Ban Bo Hin, Doi Saket, and in many other villages, at distances between 5 and 8 km.
There are small food-stalls and restaurants in many villages, mostly opened on certain hours every day. The next food stalls are about 2 km distant. Thai restaurants can be found in and between villages, most often located on country roads or higher ranking roads. Also, several restaurants with western food can be found in the district of Doi Saket, the nearest about 7 km distant.
In the district village, Doi Saket, there are several banks, a post office and a hospital.
