We stayed at the Dhara Devi for three nights in July and wish only that we'd spent more time. The service was perfect, the grounds were beyond lovely and the amenities wonderful. We felt a bit of the Disneyland vibe initially but this is far more than an upscale amusement park. Instead, we found that it was a loving recreation... More

been a while since I have felt so blown away by a hotel, especially since I'm nowadays either staying at cheaper hotels to save money for more trips (i.e. 75 euros a night in Prague or Croatia) or at expensive work related hotels (the pretty Park Hyatt hotel last week) so whether it's posh hotels or cheap hotels (for my...

We stayed five nights at this hotel and could have easily stayed much longer! We were upgraded to a villa with its own infinity pool, over the rice fields. The setting was incredible. Our villa alone had two huge baths (one inside and one outside ) and three showers! The bed was comfiest I have stayed in and the service... More

My husband and I went to Thailand for our first time and spent 5 of our 16 nights in Chiang Mai at the Mandarin Oriental Dhara Dhevi. It easily is one of the top hotels at which either of us has ever stayed and we travel frequently. Upon our arrival at the airport we were picked up in a Mercedes... More

We loved this hotel. We were also upgraded to a deluxe rice barge. It was a little dark but we loved it. The bath is great, the bed comfortable. The grounds are so pretty and the staff are amazing. It rained the entire time we were there which was such a pity. Check the weather before you go if possible.... More

We came to the Dhara Devi in Chiang Mai from its sister hotel in Bangkok which did not impress us. However, this did. We were upgraded to a suite with a pool which made our stay very special. As parents to three young childen (7,5 and 2) what really made our stay was the quality of the kids club. Even... More

Of course the service is the same everywhere in the hotel. But definitly, pick a villa. The view is just amazing from the villa terrace. Drinking a very chilled bottle of white french Bourgogne at sunset, above the paddy fields lighted with candlelight, with the sweet sound of the insects (kept away thanks to the mosquito foils) is just a...

I agree with everything written by the three most recent reviewers, especially the Disneyesque character of this resort. Although the villas are grouped around what purport to be working rice paddy fields, the well-scrubbed appearance of the "workers" who tinker daily with the paddy, and even the spotlessly clean water buffalo which make what seem to be carefully staged appearances...

My partner and I enjoyed three days at the Mandarin Oriental Dhara Dhevi. I had researched the property online and then contacted the hotel to make the reservation. It was an extraordinary visit in a remarkable part of Thailand. It has been written that this hotel is perhaps the finest resort property in Southern Asia and our experience supported that... More

I'll be brief as recent reviews here have pretty well described the experience at Dhara Dhevi. It's got lovely service, it's manicured, it's elaborate, and it's expensive. I would recommend it for well-heeled travelers who want a low-risk, high-comfort introduction to the area. The kids program is also comprehensive and excellent, if that's of interest. The gym, however, is cramped.... More
