Lodge overview - owner's description

LOCATION: 10 miles (15 km) off city of Chiang Mai, on countryside, in a quiet, secure 7,000 sqm property with natural park-like garden and a few houses.

SIZE OF PRIVATE LIVING AREA: Internal area (bungalow) 345 ft² (32 m²), plus exterior living area (terrace and private garden), about 120 yd² (100 m²).

BUILDING: A lodge with brick walls, built in 2005; with kitchen and bathroom, built in 2011; veranda-like living room, built in 2019. Windows with shutters, open for air circulation or closed with acrylic glass; floors are made of tiles, stones or concrete. All windows and doors are protected by mosquito screens. Attached roof next to the terrace. The attic (between the ceilings and the roof) keeps the bedroom on the ground floor in tolerable temperatures during the hot season.

ROOMS: The Lychee Lodge consists of 1 bedroom (with fan), 1 veranda-like living room combined with a kitchen (with single burner gas hob, microwave, refrigerator, sink, and ceiling fan), and 1 bathroom with hot shower (gas), wash basin and Western type toilet. The living room provides views over the pond and into the garden.

FURNITURE: The main furniture is two single beds with mattresses (3.5 × 6.5 ft = 108 × 200 cm), tables and easy chairs, a desk (large laptop friendly workspace), many shelves covered with curtains, and kitchen shelves.

COMMUNITY GARDEN: The large community garden can be used for relaxation and is accessible via walkways and a driveway. It includes the large natural swimming pond, several smaller ponds and ditches and a gazebo. Tall trees and bamboo provide many shady areas. You can also find wild edible herbaceous plants and fruit trees in the garden. Delicious fresh bamboo shoots can be harvested several months a year. The large pond is 300 ft (90 m) long and 23 ft (7 m) deep and can be used for swimming (not bathing), boating, and occasional fishing.

"My stay at the Lychee Lodge has been very fruitful. The space is very good for meditating, or for thinking and writing. It's a perfect place for anyone with a creative project that requires devotion. The entire property as a botanical site is continuously maintained. Dieter and Sammi have a good thing going with Baan Sammi. Here's to many more years of success in the lovely village of Pa Lan!"

Iris Jun 2016

"Perfect place for people who like nature and peacefulness. I enjoyed the resort, the neighborhood as well as the hospitality from the hosts. Excellent retreat choice outside of Chiang Mai. The bungalow provided all the necessary facilities for daily living. The hosts were available if any assistance was needed. There was space for yoga and meditation. Food, groceries, cafe and massage were within 1 to 3km distance."
