Lanjia Lodge is a beautiful, peace instilling place that will inspire all those who choose to stay there. Lanjia Lodge is aptly named as Lanjia in the Hmong dialect means ‘peace’, which is what you get a strong sense of when you stay here.
Nestled high on a hill in Chiang Rai, Lanjia Lodge is only a 30 minute drive to the Thailand-Laos border, and is close to the most fascinating parts of the lush landscape such as a Hmong and Lahu hill tribe village, spectacular hiking trails, and The Golden Triangle.
This small lodge is comprised of four guest cottages, where a total of 32 people can stay at one time. It has been thoughtfully constructed in a traditional style, to complement the lush surroundings.
The uniqueness of the lodge lies in its welcoming, simple style, impressive community based tourism initiatives, and truly spectacular views.
It’s the perfect retreat for taking in the beautiful natural surroundings and traditional practices of northern Thailand.
Made up of four guest cottages with sixteen guest rooms which are constructed out of natural, sustainable materials, the lodge is harmonious with both the natural landscape and the people who stay.
The local villagers directly benefit from every aspect of the lodge. As well as employing local villagers at the lodge, the money the lodge receives goes directly to the villages, and successful initiatives have been set up to get the village children to school and university.
The lodge is perfect for adventurers and nature lovers alike looking for a short stay where guests and local communities are encouraged to help, nurture, and educate each other. The lodge works in a unique way, by ensuring that everybody who stays chooses a community tourism oriented package that is perfect for them.
One night of accommodation can offer you breakfast, dinner, a local village tour and a local performance by hill tribe villagers. The packages are carefully created with the benefit of the local community at the forefront, and multi day packages can offer you an astonishing glimpse into another world, of rural villages, temples, awe-inspiring treks, and more in both Thailand and Laos. The rooms themselves are thoughtfully set up to ensure you have a relaxing and eco-friendly stay. They are equipped with fans, mosquito nets, power outlets, hot water, toiletries, and towels.
Rather than providing on site facilities, Lanjia Lodge offers a range of activities and tours to gain further local & cultural insight.
Your daily meals are included with your stay and are served in a breathtaking setting, overlooking the countryside.
Lanjia Lodge is one of the lodges of the Asian Oasis organisation, which believes in making positive contribution to the natural environment and local community. It has a number of outstanding social responsibility activities to promote community based tourism as local community has been involved in developing and operating the lodge. The buildings are built with the environment in mind, through the use of natural materials which require minimum use of energy. Air conditioning is replaced with eco-friendly high roof houses on stilts to ensure natural air flow.
