Spicy Villa Eco-Lodge sits atop a hillside in the mountainous Mae Wang area of northern Thailand, offering bungalow-style rooms on decks overlooking the lodge's organic farm and neighboring farming terraces.

Located between Chiang Mai and Doi Inthanon National Park, about a 1 hour 15 minute drive from both, Spicy Villa Eco-Lodge offers lodging in private or family-bungalows; private bungalows have a private deck while family bungalows share a porch and balcony. All bungalows have solar power with outlets in the room, mosquito net-covered beds, and an adjoined indoor bathroom with shower and flush toilet.

Meals take place in a communal lounge and dining area with tables on an open-air balcony over the hillside. There are group and private tables, along with a pool table, lending library with books in multiple languages, and meditation platform. The staff will speak with guests and will prepare meals based on each guest's schedule and dietary preferences. Meals are traditional Thai dishes. Free WiFi is available in the communal area.

The eco lodge is run in conjunction with Next Step Thailand Ecotourism, who offers outdoor adventure and cultural tours to the public. Tours offered that use Spicy Villa as a base include trips to the neighboring elephant camp (you can see these elephants from your bungalow balcony), hiking, bicycling, bamboo rafting, visiting farming villages, local cooking classes, and waterfall visits - with each itinerary customized around participants' interests and ability levels.

With its rural location, private vehicles are the best way to reach Spicy Villa Eco-Lodge location. Arranged transportation through the lodge is available as well.

Overall, Spicy Villa Eco-Lodge makes a great choice for visitors looking for lodging that feels far away from the urban environment and for those looking to spend their time experiencing northern Thailand's unique environmental and cultural locations.
