A charming boutique hotel with friendly and efficient staff. We love the tranquil nature that faces the hotel, sitting by the river in quietness. The only drawback of Zensala is it's situated on a side road thus getting in and out of the hotel is a bit inconvenient.

Zensala should be a great hotel. The location, on the river with a lovely rural view but only 10 minutes into bustling Chiang Mai, is fantastic. The hotel's original architect did a wonderful job in developing a suite of buildings that look great and work well. The problem is that this resort looks as though it's being run on the... More

Stayed there with family and friends during our trip to Chiang Mai, the resort has few rooms so it was very quiet and relaxing. There is a big yard in front and a small pool, water was very cold in November so we didn't do any swimming. Breakfast is okay, you can choose all you can eat from Thai to... More

Beds were very comfortable and room was very clean. TV had cable, great entertainment. Patrick the GM recommended great sights to see and knew all the best places to eat. Chiangmai is a very clean city compared to the rest of Thailand. I can't wait to return and stay at Zensala again.

I went with my boyfriend last week to Zensala. It was a beautiful experience. The view, the rooms and the service were all exceptional. We got a room on the ground floor where your door opens up to the pool with your own private jacuzzi. For food, I would recommend the pork satay and the pizza. Both delicious! The manager,... More

I've stayed at Zensala more than five times, and put my parents here as well, and we all love it. The location and hotel design are excellent, and with the river and on one side, and modern hotel on the other, with the nice pool and green lawn in the middle, it's an oasis from the city. The rooms are... More
