Spicy Villa Eco-Lodges are a mountain get away for those who want to escape the tourist crowds and enjoy the pristine northern Thai countryside and a laid back way of life.

All of the activities are aimed at giving you a broader knowledge of the area and traditional way of life.

There is an organic farm on our property and it's constantly expanding, just recently we have planted over 200 pineapples!
Vegetables, fruit, herbs and spices are all grown completely naturally in line with traditional farming techniques of the area. We use them when preparing meals for our guests.
Our main responsibility is giving back to the community. All our staff is from local Karen villages and has a great knowledge of the area. We pay them fairly, to help their community and they are happy to work for us.
A part of our proceedings goes to our community project "Share the Dream Project" which we set up to help local villagers, we teach English to local Karen children and offer medical assistance to hill tribe minorities.
We have 5 private bungalows, each is suitable for 2 guests. They are basic and simple, but spacious and clean. Each has a private bathroom.
We also have 2 family bungalows which consist of two adjoining rooms and a bathroom and are suitable for up to 4 guests.
The hot water in our shower is dependent on how much solar energy we receive from the sun on each day. So… it is possible that during your stay, you might be having a cold shower! Good to remember that this is refreshing, good for your skin, general vitality, and health : )
We have limited WiFi available when needed. Please inform a staff member if you require access.
Breakfast is provided during your stay here at the bungalows. It will be prepared for you in the kitchen in the morning.
Lunch will be two Thai dishes, and dinner will be at least three. All the vegetables served are grown in this region, and meals are served with fresh seasonal fruit.
You can help yourself to drinks, just sign your name on the paper near the cooler and mark each drink you take out on it. Tally how many and pay at the end of your stay.
