The vegetation has grown partly wild, partly it is planted. It consists of trees and shrubs, bamboos, vines, most of them indigenous, and of ornamental trees and shrubs, most with fragrant flowers, and of palms, ferns, herbs and orchids. Various fruit trees were planted, among which are mango, lychee, rose apple, pomelo, lemon, tamarind, banana and papaya. The leaves and fruits of many wild herbs, and of several trees, are edible and can be uses as vegetables, for soups and for seasoning. We have a large bamboo collection, consisting of native and introduced tall and low bamboo species mainly from the tropics and subtropics of Southeast Asia, but also some from South and Central America, Africa, northern Australia, East Asia, northern India and the Himalayas. For several months every year, delicous bamboo shoots can be harvested.

Although the resort area is not a mosquito heaven, simple precautionary measures, chiefly in the evening, are recommended. At night, no mosquito net covering the bedstead is necessary as the interior of all houses is fully protected by mosquito screens on doors, windows and other openings.
We have outdoor pets on the property, one dog and cats, so we cannot allow further pets from guests and tenants to stay on our property.
Available to all houses at Baan Sammi is electricity, Internet (Wi-Fi), mobile phone signal, drinkable tap water, bottled drinking water, ground-water for irrigation. A few houses have in addition gas (for cooking and/or shower), and LAN-Internet.
A small rowboat for 1-2 persons is available. Several places in the garden are suitable for barbecue, and a barbecue equipment is available.
A community sitting area, both a roofed and a non-roofed living-space, is available next to the chalets, and is for general use, e.g. for breakfast, dinner, socializing. We do not run a restaurant at Baan Sammi, but on request you can have breakfast and choose Western type or Thai type breakfast, or fruits of the season. On request and if ordered in advance, Thai meals for lunch and dinner can be offered, too.
Four houses have an own kitchen. The kitchen facilities near the chalets can be used if there is no kitchen in the rented home.
Three houses have an own washing machine. Usage of a washing machine near the chalets is possible if there is no washing machine in the rented home. Iron and ironing board is available on request. Further, an external laundry service can be offered.
A food delivery service from a nearby restaurant is available 6 days per week. There is a variety of meals offered, e.g. Thai meals as well as Western meals including pizzas. This service is free-of-charge.
A grocery delivery service from TescoLotus is available online and daily. This service is free-of-charge if an order exceeds the minimum total value.
Every afternoon a female cyclist passes the village road and offers a grocery delivery service. Let her stop and you can shop.
Bicycles can be made available for your whole stay. They are suitable for shopping in nearby villages and to explore the vicinity.
A motorbike can be made available by day. For longer trips, or use over a longer period, we can help you to get a motorbike rented from the city.
For trips to the city using public transport, we can arrange to get you a shuttle service by saleng to the main road, from where you can switch to the fixed-route song-thaeo that services the route from Doi Saket to the city of Chiang Mai and back.
For any trips, a driver with car can be hired, e.g. for transport to and from airport, railway station, bus station, for shopping and sightseeing. We prefer to recommend you a certain driver who is well experienced, knows well the vicinity and wider areas, and can talk to you in fluent English.
