Bura Resort: A Review of Accommodation in Chiang Rai

Updated on March 4, 2014

Bura Resort is located 10 kilometers from Chiang Rai's city centre, ten minutes away from Baan Dam, dark and mysterious masterpiece of Thailand's national artist, Thawan Duchanee. Its remote location gives you a welcome time off from the hustle and bustle of the city.

What makes this resort special is the man-made waterfall that flows by the bungalows of this resort, surrounding you with the therapeutic sounds of cascading water during your stay. On the terrace of it's bungalows, you can sit back and enjoy a nice view of Chiang Rai's beautiful landscape.

The Bungalows

Bura Resort has a very unique jungle theme. The bungalows are built along a flowing waterfall which is surrounded by trees, transporting you into the middle of the rainforest. The bungalows have a cave-like facade, bringing to life the Flinstones' abode.

Bura Resort has only eight bungalows. These bungalows are properly spread out, offering peace and quiet and privacy to the guests.


The cottages here are very unique. The theme reminded me of the Flinstones.

Bura Resort offers two types of accommodation. The garden front accommodation is located at the lower part of the resort, offering a view of the resort's bamboo garden. The water front villas are on either side of the waterfall. Both bungalows have terraces overlooking the man-made falls that flows from a natural water source. They also have a water feature that allows guests to enjoy their own personal water fall on their terrace.

The higher end rooms have huge bathrooms that include a huge bath tub and shower area that has both rain shower and standing shower. They also have a sitting area and desk.

The dining area consists of a spacious outside area by a cascading waterfall. They also have an indoor dining area which is less impressive than the outside area.

The restaurant doesn't have a huge menu but it does serve simple but tasty Thai dishes. They have a small selection of breakfast sets that include cereal and milk, eggs and processed meats and congee.

Positive
Negative
The staff was amazing. They were warm, friendly and accommodating.
They do room service. Unfortunately, there's no phone in the cottage. So, you need to walk to reception or go to the restaurant to order room service.
They've got an impressive bathroom with a huge bath tub, a rain shower and standing shower. They gave us complimentary toiletries that smelt of coconut and ylang-ylang.
Unfortunately, the villa we stayed at had a clogged rain shower which produced a weak drizzle.
Bura Resort's restaurant has a small selection of dishes to choose from but they are all done properly and are quite tasty.
It would be really nice if they had a dessert menu.
The remote location gives you a lot of peace and quiet.
The resort is on top of a hill and is far from other restaurants available in the area so not having your own transportation could be a problem if you plan on eating elsewhere.
These are my thoughts on our stay at The Bura Resort. It is a really nice venue for a retreat from the real world. There are, however, a few things that could make it better. Overall, I thought the place was amazing and would love to stay there again
4 stars for Bura Resort
