Chasa Rakthai Resort is located right next to Lee Wine Ruk Thai Resort. Chasa does not book as fast as Lee Wine because it lacks the tea-surrounded bungalows of its neighbor, you still have the same great lake views.
Please note that accommodation booking is completed directly with the resort (currently via their Facebook Page) and is secured with local bank transfer. If you are travelling to Ban Rak Thai as part of an itinerary with Olsen Tours, we can manage the booking for you.
Chasa Rakthai Resort has a ‘Great Wall’ replica offering good views of the town and lake. There are also some elevated metal walkways at the rear of the property that allow for good views of the neighboring tea plantation in addition to the lake.
At the very back of the property, there is a stunning viewpoint from the top of the plantation overlooking the resort, the town, and the lake. The sun will set at you back, so best light for photography starts from around 1 hour before the sun sinks behind the hill.
The restaurant is roadside at the bottom of the property, but elevated from street level, so you get good views. The resturant serves the local and Yunnanese standards and is also the location of the breakfast buffet.
