Yaang Come Village Chiang Mai

If anyone is in Chiang Mai soon a place perhaps worth looking at is the Yaang Come Village, it is supposed to be 200 meters from the Night Bazaar in the Chiang Mai Plaza Hotel area. The Yaang Come Village is in the $90-100 region but looks like it could be of interest for those wanting Thai style place close to center in Chiang Mai which so many are after. I get an email alert when new places are added or open and this one looks interesting.

I know nothing more than recent write-ups in local Thai magazines but it would be of interest to other Fodorites if anyone manages to get to have a look at it.

I was having exactly the problem you described. I asked on here about Yaang Come Village but the general opinion seemed to be that it could be a bit risky booking a hotel not yet completed.

Anyway, we went round in circles trying to make a decision and Yaang Come Village looked perfect so we decided to take the risk.

It opens on November 15th and we're not arriving till December 27th so fingers crossed.

Their website has photographs under the "status of Construction" link and looks absolutely gorgeous. http://www.yaangcome.com

If it's as good as it looks, I suspect it might not be such good value this time next year.

If anyone gets a chance to go there before I do, I would love to hear your thoughts.

It does look great. I'd also be hearing reports.Interesting, resonably priced hotels is something that Chiang Mai has lacked. Looks like that is beginning to change.

Certainly a lot of new places coming up and especialy around the Chiang Mai area a great deal more 'natural' style places, it is strange how so often there is such a demand for a more natural style accommodation yet few exist, but seems to be changing.
The new Wora Bura in Hua Hin has been designed throughout early 1900's style, lots of wood, stone and greenary, old style uniforms for staff, it's a nice trend to see.

We have also taken a chance and booked in to the Yaang Come Village for the end of December...our travel agent kept trying to get us to stay in the "big hotels" like the Sheraton (having read the reviews on this website I am SO glad we didn't agree)! We would love to hear feedback of what it is like DiveDiva.

Hi all, I have just booked 3 days here from 14-17th Nov through Sawadee.com. I have also had a message back directly from the hotel confirming they are opening on 30th Oct and have 28 rooms completed and welcome the booking. Hopefully, it will all be ok.

Yaang Come village is fantastic. we were lucky enought to have Poon find it for us. funny story...she took us to dinner at the Whole earth restaurant (2nd visit for us...its excellent) and asked her to help me locate the new resort. after dinner...she said...come follow me. we walked about 100 meters and walla...there is the new resort.

the manager met us...a wonderful lady...and personally escorted us to visit the property. it is very upscale for chiang mai. the units are all tile floors, very nice thai decor...each room has a hand painted mural painted on the way of village life. the bathrooms are large with a huge tub in the deluxe rooms (standard room only showers), all rooms have terraces overlooking the pool. there is also a jacuzzi, meeting rooms, internet access, full service kitchen.
the best way for me to describe the property is it reminds me of the timeshare places we stayed in mexico. very very nice, and the staff was so accomdating, even giving us cold water to drink.

each room has wi fi...and televisions,a/c, fans...comfortable beds. it really impressed us...and the grounds are off the main road so it is quiet. the rooms are discounted right now to $90- $100 but i have their rack rates which are considerably higher.:
superior 6000 bht, deluxe 7000
family rooms 9000 and junior suites 15,000. this includes american breakfast.
they call it the "hippest new hotel in chiang mai" and i agree...it is lovely.

Thanks Dive Diva. Looks lovely! Since it is so close to night bazaar & appears to be right in the middle of everything could you tell if it is noisy?

Thanks so much for checking this out Divediva.

It sounds brilliant, I am so glad I took a chance and booked it, even though at the time it was far from open!

I am really looking forward to staying there on my first visit to Chiang Mai.

the village is well off the main road behind the whole earth restaurant. it should be quiet and all the buildings are concrete.
it really is impressive and i am looking forward to hearing from those of you who get to stay there soon

Thanks, Dive and JamesA. We've just booked Yaang Come Village for February. Love to hear reports from anyone who stays there before then.

There is another small place opening in December in CM, the " Puripunn Baby Grand Boutique Hotel" though it seems expensive for a small Boutique style place but it might be interesting if anyone is in that part of CM to check it out. It's in Wat Gade area, so a bit out of the way but although in the very top end pricewise it might be of interest ( I get these alerts when new places open up quite is quite good )

It's also on Nongasia too.
When Tangata is back in CM there is a lot of updating to do!
