“Amazing Property”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013 via mobile

Fantastic hotel located on the Mae Ping River at the site of the former British Consulate. The hotel has a good location and is a short walk to the night bazaar. It is a bit of a walk to the old town, however there are a number of taxis and tuk tuks a couple of blocks away from the hotel's entrance. In the immediate area there are a number of good choices for restaurants and massages. The property itself has a beautiful design with more of a quiet resort feel. Think elegant, tranquil. The staff is truly wonderful and very attentive. For the price we paid we actually thought the property was a great value as well. Highly recommended.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

We loved our short stay at the Chedi Chiang Mai. This was our first experience at a Singapore-based GHM brand hotel, and we came away extremely impressed. The architecture and landscaping made the Chedi an idyllic oasis in bustling east Chiang Mai. The rooms are spacious and well appointed, and we found the breakfast buffet (with a large made to order menu) very good and inventive. The staff was exceptionally courteous and helpful. All of this was done without any air of stuffiness or overly formal behavior seen at some high end Asian hotels.

If you stay here, the hotel restaurant is worth a visit. The menu is a bit strangely laid out, but the dishes are creative and top notch at a reasonable cost.

Drawbacks are minimal, but I am providing them to keep the review balanced. The staff's English is passable, but we definitely had to try a couple of times to get our point across on multiple occasions. One should note this is no worse than other international-oriented hotels we've used in Thailand. Also, there is no concierge, so be prepared to vet tour guides and restaurant choices with only directory-like assistance from the front desk.

Finally, one more recommendation. The Club Rate is an exceptional value that gives you airport transfers, 7 pieces of laundry per day, entire minibar complimentary, evening cocktails, and free internet. If you're staying for just a few days, I would highly recommend the upcharge to a club suite.

Room Tip: Club Suites are worth the additional cost

Dear Guest,

You cannot imagine how proud I am as a General Manager to continue reading the fantastic feedback we get from all our guests and this is even more true when it comes to comments about our exceptional staff.

Thank you for your review and also for highlighting some of the drawbacks as this helps us tremendously to determine on which areas we need to focus so that The Chedi Chiang Mai gets even better.

After this first GHM experience we hope that we inspired you for more... if not here in Chiang Mai, maybe in Bali, Vietnam, Oman or our soon to come property The Chedi Andermatt in Switzerland.

Warm regards,

Andy Kunz

I think the Chedi in Chiang Mai might just be my all time fave hotel. On my 3rd visit we stayed in a club suite which gives you not only a beautiful room but also bonuses such as access to the club room and the lovely concierges there, a nightly cocktail hour in the club room and free consumption of the contents of the minibar in your room. As always, the Chedi staff are gracious, helpful and friendly, from the gardeners right through the hierarchy. The gym is well maintained, the grounds are stunning, the pool is great for laps or lazing by and the catering is pretty good too! I have no dobt I will be writing another glowing review after my fourth visit.

We recently spent 3 nights at the Chedi during our visit to Thailand and we had a fabulous time, I just wished we had booked longer. We had gone away for my birthday (which my husband had told them) and upon our arrival had a bottle of Prosseco on ice waiting for us in our room, which was a really nice touch! The hotel and staff were really welcoming and the pool and outside dining area were beautiful, and really serene. Would definitely recommend

My husband and I stayed at the Chedi a few weeks ago and both of us were very impressed. The staff are very attentive and make you feel welcome from the moment you enter the hotel. The communal area's are beautifully laid out and are very attractive. We paid the extra money for the Club Suite and it was worth every cent. Extreemely spacious and well laid out. Attention to detail is second to none. We will return!
