Modern, beautiful boutique hotel located by the Mae Ping river – 10/15 min walk away from the “old town” of Chiang Mai. We found it after disappointing stay in B/B outside the Chiang Mai. The lady at the reception desk showed us the room which was decorated with rose petal and swans made from towels. After checking in we received complimentary fruits which was very nice gesture.
We stayed at the Deluxe Room (I guess the “water element” one because of the blue interior) with a view on the courtyard and it was fantastic! The room was elegantly furnished, clean, specious, amazing bathtub separated from the room with wooden sliding doors. There was also separate shower and toilet. The bed was very big but a little bit hard. Buffet breakfast was quite good – beautiful breakfast area. Simple but charming and stylish garden with unique black swimming pool is a perfect place to relax after exploring Chiang Mai. Aruntara has amazing reception area with wide choice of beauty care products. Free bicycle rental and free shuttle service to the Night Bazaar (much cheaper than in Bangkok, Phuket or Khao Lak ;))
Staff was very friendly and helpful with arranging taxi’s, local transport, tours (Elephant Nature Park and Siam Rice Thai Cookery School) advising on sightseeing’s.
Couldn't be happier to spend couple of days of our honeymoon at the Aruntara.
