This is a lovely boutique hotel in a great location by the Mae Ping river. I emailed ahead to upgrade room to a balcony overlooking the river and it was worth the extra money. It isn't on the web site yet and doesn't show on the photos but is built above the walkway to the river. The balcony is not... More

We are greeted by hotel's car at Chiang Mai airport which took us to the hotel. The driver is very polite and provide brief introduction of Chiang Mai to us. We booked a special room and hence can check in at the designated lounge. The room is very spacious with balcony, and even a day bed. There are also tiny... More

Hands down this is one of the best hotels I've ever stayed at (even in comparison to hotels in the US). Very spacious room, great decor, and beds are very comfortable. Can't say enough good things about the staff - they are incredibly welcoming and helpful for all needs. Hotel also provides complimentary breakfast with a nice river view. Location... More

We had an a great stay at the Aruntara. The design of the hotel is very cool, it's clear that some clever thought and attention to detail was put in when they built it. The staff were extremely friendly and professional. We slept very well each night and greatly enjoyed breakfast by the river, the egg station chef is a... More

Beautiful hotel (loved the lobby and courtyard) and very spacious and comfortable rooms. Great value, especially as our room promotion included some free massages. Our only drawback was that the hotel is not in immediate walking distance of the night market or gate, but there is a complimentary nightly shuttle (one-way only). Taxis were not expensive or difficult to find... More

This is a very classic thai theme hotel in chiang mai, where rooms are spacious and staffs are extremely friendly and helpful. The receptionist allows us an early check in at 11 with honeymoon set up. I do appreciate their effort to delight the guests. Breakfast is acceptable, i don expect myself to eat a lot in the morning, food... More

The hotel is in an excellent location on the river and very close to the airport, the hotel offers airport pickup and drop off and we were very very pleased with this service. The hotel is on the outer edge of the main market areas and not too far from the old city. Easy to get Tuk Tuks all around... More

Loved the Aruntara. So much so that we came back and stayed here again. And they even saved our charger for us! The place is beautiful and quiet. Room is top notch. And the staff is wonderful and very attentive. In busy Chiang Mai, this is a great oasis!

This hotel isn't the cheapest but for your money you undoubtedly get a very stylish and comfortable room. We stayed in the White Elephant suite which I would definitely recommend over the others. I think they're the only rooms where you actually have a river view from your room without having to go down to the garden. The room is... More
