Joys’ house was the first of many places that we stayed on our honeymoon trip to Thailand. We stayed there for 3 nights, and to be honest, everything was perfect. I emailed Joy and Ulle weeks in advance to try and arrange some sort of decoration in the room to surprise the Mrs., and everything went like clockwork. The complementary...

My room was very nice and my free welcome dinner together with some Thai youngsters who get training in Joy's House let me feel already the first day as a part of the big...

We travelled all around Thailand, this spring, and this was the best place to be, from Ko Tao, to Chiang Rai.

I chose to stay at Joy's House for the last 3 nights of an 8 month trip for some peace of mind and I was not disappointed. The moment you pass through the gates, tranquility reigned supreme. It's a little way out of Chiang Mai but I liked that about it because it made it more of a haven. I...
