Hi, my family and I are going to be in Chiang Rai for a day or two before heading off to Phuket. So I am trying to find some place to stay that isn't too far away from the airport because we have an early flight.. Maybe a 10-15 minute drive at most, shorter the better of course..
We are 4 adults so we will need 2 rooms, or even a suite that will accommodate 4 people in one room (which I find far and few between).
However, our budget is low around 1000-1200 BHT, maybe $30-$40 US a night a night.
Do you recommend any hotels near by?
Oh, just a weird preference I have.. We love staying in bungalows/cabins/stand alone mini houses.. It gives more privacy, close to nature, and more of an authenic feel of staying in one than in a hotel.. It isn't necessary but it would be a better experience..
And we will want to do some tours while we are there, like see the Golden Triangle and the Karen Long Neck Tribe.
I was looking at..
Golden Triangle Inn - Looks not bad, any opinions?
Pongprabaht Resort - Except I haven't heard anything really about this place at all! Looks nice but I value to hear people's opinions about it..
Rimkok Resort Hotel - Some rates were lower but it varied depending on which website I looked at.. I read that the grounds and landscaping is gorgeous, but the rooms are run down and not great.. A bit out of the way and out of town but kinda near the airport? Any opinions?
LaLuna Hotel and Resort - Looks nice but on their official website it says its $80-$100 US a night (which is too much).. However, if I look at Agonda its $40 US a night or $39 at Direct Rooms.. So I am a bit confused and wondering if I should trust those sites or not.
Moon & Sun Hotel - Heard it's new and was recommended by Lonely Planet but its just a standard hotel with nothing unique about it.. But if we can't find anything else we'd consider it.
Any other ones I should look at? Any help or opinions you could give would be great!
