The Garden
 
  The Garden
We have 6,000 square meters of garden with a bamboo grove, a pond, and big trees. The land is on a cliff, below which is a river where one can swim surrounded by rice fields and forest. We are in a big valley surrounded by mountains that were once volcanoes, which is why we have hot springs here.

The House
 
  Our main house is built in traditional, open-style Thai Lanna design. From the large porch you can enjoy a spectacular view of the whole surrounding area. All activities are centered around it.
We provide accommodation in 3 adjacent houses.
1. The Garden House, constructed with bricks made of mud from our pond. The walls keep the interior cool during the daytime, and warm during cold winter nights.
2. The River View House is a teak wood alpine cottage next to the river.
3. The Rice House is a teak wood barn at least 70 years old, originally built to store rice. We dismantled it in the neighboring village and rebuilt it here. According to local custom, these houses are built on wooden columns to protect the rice from insects and animals.

The Meditation and Group Room
 
  An artistically built, stand-alone pavilion with 110 square meters of floor space. Shaped in the form of an octagon and surrounded by trees. The wooden teak ceiling gives the room a warm feeling; the seating uses traditional Thai style cushions, and three big A/C units keep the room fresh. The powerful sound system is guaranteed to make you jump! In addition, there is a large LCD screen for videos. It will function as a group room for workshops, meditations and concerts.
