Great pool, nice park, louzy restaurant and 10 mnts from city center. Nice rooms and great swimming pool but the restaurant service (restaurant located on the edge of the park area, outsiders can also eat there)... we were served without a smile (several times... now, that's normally unthinkable in Thailand where service is Always with a smile). Chiang Rai itself... More

We booked 3 nights here for a girls trip. After much of debate, we decided on this resort. The major influence on the decision was the pool. We called the resort to check on a triple room configuration and they offered a special rate. About 1200 bt cheaper than the Internet rate. Fantastic!!! We stayed one night and changed the... More

I stayed at this resort for a night with quite a large family members and got 4 small villas. I read quite a number of so-so reviews prior to arrival but nevertheless still gave this place a try-out. The stay here was pleasant and the upkeep of the resort is quite to my satisfaction. The place is clean, landscaping is... More

We booked to stay in Chiang Rai for 4 nights and wanted a bit of luxury due to us travelling around South East Asia for the previous 3 months and not booking into this sort of supposed standard hotel. We arrived late and knowing the hotel was in the middle of nowhere, we had no choice but to eat at... More

The accommodations were wonderful, the beds comfortable and the grounds beautiful. We stayed here as part of our Smartours package. The room that we were assigned was very nice and roomie next to a pond, it was wonderful to hear the frogs and things in the warm night air. We went to have a late dinner because of our late... More

We arrived late to discover that our pre-booked standard room was occupied but got upgraded to a villa at no extra charge. A very professional and service-minded attitude. The villa was spacious and comfortable brickstone building, situated along a pond with other villas. The grounds of the resort had a generous masterplan with greenery and water features. I would not... More

We spent one night here as part of a tour and this was our stop in Chiang Rai. The hotel is set in very nice garden surrounds and is spread over quite a large area. On arrival we were greeted by friendly staff and shown to our rooms. The rooms were very large and while not ultra modern were well... More

The grounds are lush with ponds, canals, huge swimming pool and lovely bungalows. The reception area is a beautiful open pavilion. There is a feeling of a small village lost in time. We stayed in the 3-story building. The rooms were typical hotel rooms, but with balcony. Our room was comfortable. Food in the restaurant, our breakfast buffet, lunch buffet... More
