Why Hot Coffee?

Hot Coffee Guesthouse & Resort is a quiet and peaceful hide-out in the middle of the stunning scenery of the Doi Inthanon area. Visitors from Chiang Mai on their way to Mae Hong Sorn (or the other way round) should stop over and experience nature at its best !

But there is also another reason you should visit Hot Coffee Guesthouse & Resort - and maybe stay a few days among local residents. You will have a lasting impact of how people can live a happy life without any comfort of the so-cold modern world. Hot Coffee Guesthouse & Resort is a direct sponsor of the Rain Tree Foundation, which is a non-profit organisation, helping and improving lives of poor and undeveloped communities in remote areas of North and South Thailand.

Hot Coffee Guesthouse & Resort supports a Children's Home which is located in close range of the resort's facilities. A visit will be not only good for you; it will be good for the children – the children without parents who benefit from your visit!

What a nice place to spend the night

What a nice place to spend the night. The surroundings are amazing. The sound of the river, alle the green plants and trees, and very friendly staff. We stayed in a bungalow and it was very comfortable. Everything was there: clean shower and toilet, nice bed, space for luggage. It was impressive to visit the orphanage. Very nice to see how much effort and love the staff gives to it. We will definitely come back if we are around. Een fantastische plek om te overnachten. Midden in de natuur met de kabbelende rivier op de achtergrond. Erg vriendelijk personeel. We sliepen in de bungalow en die was top. Van alle gemakken voorzien: schone douche en toilet, goed bed, ruimte om spullen op te bergen. Erg indrukwekkend om het weeshuis te bezoeken, en mooi om te zien hoe het personeel van Hot Coffee zich hiervoor inzet. Als we weer in de buurt zijn komen we hier zeker terug.

One of the most amazing places

This was one of the most amazing places we stayed in Thailand. And if we're ever in the area again, Well be sure to stay here again. And a bit longer. The view from the deck was amazing. The only suggestion I can give is the menu could be a little bigger.

Favorite hotel in Thailand (out of many)

Beautiful, quiet location with adorable thatch rooms elevated and almost directly above a river. Good food (didn't try the coffee), nice staff, comfortable bed, etc. It was quiet during rainy season (if it looks closed just go to the gate) but an absolute must-stop for anyone in the Doi Inthanon/Khun Yuam area on the MHS loop and looking to spend a night away from the towns.

What a great experience

What a great experience to stay at Hot Coffee, the nature, the people, everything just played together in harmony. The stunning view and the cool weather added to the great experience.
I'd love to visit again soon.

Riding the Loop!

We did the Chiang Mai - Mae Hong Son loop by rented motorbikes. But we had a late start in Mae Hong Son on our way to Inthanon. In the late afternoon we stopped at the Hot Coffee for some beers. It is such a marvelous place that we instantly decided to spend an extra night over there and we did the rafting trip in the morning. All I can say, it's worth worth while and we come back on our next trip, when we go offroad from Samoeng to Pai. Great trail waiting there. Cheers,

Fantastic Volunteer Trip

Thanks very much for the warm hospitality. We had 3 outstanding days in the middle of the jungle which we will never forget. After these days we should feel exhausted but it is the opposite ... donating a water filter, which was included in the price for the trip, rather make us feel delighted. Thank you again ... Cheers
