Die Unterkunft

Beautiful and cozy little freestanding huts offer the ultimate private mountain experience. The huts feature traditional grass roofs, queen-size beds, mini-bars, mosquito nets, fans, and private outdoor space.

Here you can spend your days interacting with elephants — playing, feeding, and bathing them. Ride down the river in a bamboo raft, or simply float away in a tube without a care in the world. Go trekking on endless trails that lead to secret waterfalls, beautiful vistas, Hill Tribe villages and hidden spots unreachable by car. And at the end of the day, come gather around the fire pit (in the winter) while gazing at a sky full of stars.

Price includes breakfast in our cafe which is open everyday from 730 am to 9pm.

Promoting the Humane Treatment of Elephants

The Chai Lai Orchid is also social business working to promote sustainable tourism and kindness to elephants.

Currently, the elephants next to our eco-lodge are owned by a local man who partners with tour operators from Chiang Mai. During your stay you may witness these tours in action and see first hand the elephants being ridden with chairs. The Chai Lai Orchid does not endorse or support this practice - rather we create an opportunity for our guests to love, feed, bathe and ride these elephants bare back.

We recently launched a campaign, Dollars for DeeDee (and friends!) to rescue these elephants. Your stay at the Chai Lai Orchid helps us move closer to our goal of purchasing these elephants, renting or purchasing a grass and corn plantation to feed them, as well as providing fair wages for the mahouts. If you would like to learn more and get involved, visit our website!

The Chai Lai Orchid - A Partner of Daughters Rising

The Chai Lai Orchid is a nature retreat nestled in the mountains of Chiang Mai, Thailand. A partner of Daughters Rising, The Chai Lai Orchid is a safe haven for women at risk of trafficking to live and work. The profits from your fund Daughters Rising’s education and anti trafficking programs.

Many of our trainees are refugees from Burma in Thailand, human rights are never explained, let alone experienced. An apprenticeship at the Chai Lai Orchid provides a work permit, hospitality training, language classes and guaranteed payment. Most importantly, girls are given lessons on women’s and worker’s rights.

With the ability to earn a living, confidence in their new-found skills, knowledge about their rights, women at the Chai Lai Orchid are empowered to escape poverty, live a life of dignity and see a future filled with hope and opportunity.

We appreciate your patience with the women during your stay as they are all learning English as a third or fourth language! To learn more about Daughters Rising and the women you are helping support, visit the Daughters Rising website.

This place is absolutely magical. A colleague of mine had stayed here a couple of years ago and recommended it to my friend and I, and loved every minute of it! The grounds are a sight to behold, the service is lovely and also ELEPHANTS! They are all around the grounds, doing their thing: staying at Chai Lai gives you the opportunity to visit, feed, bathe and even ride them (bareback). The puppies were also very lovable. :) The huts are as advertised, very 'rustic' and simple; we didn't have AC but did have a fan directed at our bed which kept us very cool. The sounds of wildlife was very cool to fall asleep to and the resident rooster was an awesome alarm. There are optional treks, we opted for the Mountain Trek which was very challenging (we asked for a challenge, but you can have the trek customized to your liking / level); just when we needed them there were swim breaks in the river (it was HOT!). The food at the cafe was delicious, fresh and reasonably priced. We also ordered Thai massage to our room, Mai and Sai were awesome! Great massage and great personalities to boot. Booking and communication was a breeze, Alexa was very responsive and helped to arrange a pickup at the airport to bring us to Chai Lai. It is clear that Alexa is loved by her staff and the local community because of all of her efforts towards all animals (including humans). You should really check out the work that she is doing. Definitely recommend this as a must-do during your travels in Thailand. Thanks to Alexa & team! x

I like my little hut, which was clean and comfortable. The food was great and the local staff friendly. But I was saddened to see the elephants being ridden by tourists in baskets. They walk past just under where you eat, again and again. All elephants seemed to be chained up all the time when they are not being ridden, except for the one lucky one that people pay to bathe. Apparently Chai Lai Orchid does rent the elephants for half a day which saves them from being ridden the entire day. So they do help the elephants, but this is NOT an elephant sanctuary.
