Chiang Dao Nest Mini-Resort opened on November 8th 2002 under Thai and English management. Wicha Cavaliero (Thai) is a professional chef, who trained for three years in England, working and training in a number of quality fusion restaurants. Stuart Cavaliero (English) has a background in retail management and more recently internet work.
Chiang Dao Nest Mini-Resort restaurant has a different menu every night. Wicha, our chef uses local produce, in season, from hilltribe farmers around Chiang Dao to create fusion dishes, a mixture of Thai delicacies and European cuisine, the quality of which is normally reserved for five star hotel dining. Vegetarians are catered for. We also offer a good selection of wines.
We can arrange trekking and tours in the area. Elephant camps and bamboo rafting opportunities are nearby, which we can also arrange. Other activities available locally include cycling, hiking, nature, temples, caves and just simply relaxing. Chiang Dao is increasingly becoming recognised as an important birding area. It plays host to over 300 species. Chiang Dao Nest is situated in the middle of a good birding area. We can arrange travel to other nearby birding spots, too.
Chiang Dao Nest Trekking has a range of private and group trekking options to appeal to all tastes, timescales and abilities. We regularly send small groups to scale the peak of Doi Luang Chiang Dao, at 2245m Thailand's third highest mountain. We also have very close links with local hilltribe villages and can offer group and private treks, which can include elephant rides and bamboo rafting.
We aim to attract people who enjoy a quiet place, off the beaten track and surrounded by nature. They will be happy with simple, clean, comfortable accommodation but will enjoy and value good food.

Loved the foooooooood~! I will never forget the serenity of the resort, the friendly staff, the simple yet adequate amenities, the beautiful views and of course, the amazing cooking by Wicha! If anything, you're bored or just craving good food, go to this place and eat. The price of food ain't cheap but hell, it's worth it for that kind of cooking and freshness. I still miss their breakfast and home made bread!
