About us

Through word of mouth, Lampang River Lodge has long been a popular hideaway for nature lovers.



Just 200 metres off the Paholyothin Road in Lampang, the resort sits on an area of 25 rai of lush green undergrowth and trees on the banks of the Wang River.

The land was formerly a farming area for local villagers and since being turned into a resort fourteen years ago more trees have been planted to provide a shady and natural environment for our guests to experience their time here close to nature.

Our nature loving guests enjoy wandering around our vast grounds and we have placed signs in English and Latin of our tropical trees and plant names.



The resort was recently awarded the Unseen Paradise in Thailand award by the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT).



The resort is environmentally-friendly and works closely with the local community.

We have a good water treatment system to prevent the release of waste water into the Wang River and our light bulbs are electricity saving.
