“A hidden little gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

Amata Lanna truly embodies what a perfect boutique hotel should be, Thai style building architecture that talks to its character, friendly staff, small (only 12 rooms) and very personal. Our room had simple yet elegant thai style furniture, a big comfortable bed and bathroom with a walk in rain shower and a Jacuzzi. The location was great as well. It is right on the river bank, 10 minutes walk to the warorot market, 10 minutes tuk-tuk ride will take you to the old city and 15 minutes taxi ride to the airport. They serve only breakfast and not lunch and dinner. Owner comes in at 7 AM and starts the kitchen, she cooks egg to your liking while the front office receptionist doubles as her support and helps with bread toast, serve coffee/tea etc., while the simple salad/fruits are for self-serving. The breakfast was simple yet good. Another good thing about Amata Lanna is that it is right across Ping Nakara and couple of blocks away from Anantara which we gladly used as landmarks. Since Nakara Jardin which is part of the Ping Nakara is highly rated in T.A. we also tried to have a meal, after couple of unsuccessful attempts we got a table on 1st Jan. for lunch, food was on the money and my wife loved their cakes. Overall, we had a pleasant stay at Amata lanna and would go back if we get back to Chiangmai. Only issue was the traffic noise but this is probably common everywhere in Chiangmai.

Been here with friends, and booked it again with Family. Could not find anything in Chiang Mai that could match this small beautiful peaceful boutique hotel. Authentic and clean. good size of rooms. super service!
breakfast outside by the pool (pool small but OK). I will go there Again, no doubt about it.

Room Tip: all rooms are good, both Upstairs and downstairs

All of the staff were very welcoming & helpful throughout our stay from the moment we arrived.
Breakfast was served promptly to order beside the pool, and although not a big area it was a pleasure to sit there.
Bed was comfortable but pillows not to our choice.
There is some road noise but this applies to many hotels in Chiang Mai.
Lovely external access to rooms with seating area outside room to relax.
Night market with restaurants a short walk or tuk tuk ride.

In summary a very enjoyable stay and excellent value for money.

Room Tip: I believe all rooms are excellent but for less able people please note there is no lift to 1st floor...

I know that there are many beautiful hotels in Chiang Mai and you are probably spoilt for choice, but do consider this lovely place. Amata Lanna is a real little treasure - a genuine boutique hotel with only 12 rooms, built around a small courtyard near the banks of the Ping River. It's a 5 minute walk to the Night Bazaar and 15 minutes from the Old Town.

Ignore the location shown on Google maps - The Chedi (soon to be Anantara) and the Ping Nakara are neighbours but at less than half the price, this place is much better value and a very relaxing place to stay.

The rooms are large and beautifully decorated, with a beautiful mix of textiles, antiques and fresh flowers. They are well airconditioned and look out over the small private courtyard garden where you eat breakfast next to the azure blue pool. Bathrooms are enormous and as well as walk in showers have spa baths too.

The fantastic staff keep the place immaculate and couldn't be more helpful organizing taxis and tours, bicycles and dining recommendation and great advice whenever consulted. Many thanks to Toy and Yu who were so friendly and help to make this place so special.

Room Tip: The upstairs room are probably a bit more private but they all look lovely

Lovely place with very helpful staff. Large, clean rooms with good style and a pleasant teak smell. Staff took care of needs and made good suggestions for food. Central location. If back in CM, Will stay again here.

Small boutique resort with Lanna Architecture. google has the location wrong! To find it, look for The Chedi Hotel. It is about 200m from the Chedi on the same side of the road.

The rooms are spacious and has a jacuzzi in the bathroom. The room is very nicely decorated with mostly teak wood furniture but the design is quasi-modern. The room comes with a safe, tv, complimentary water and coffee and basically everything you need.

There is a small pool as you enter the resort. The reception is a small open air area - nice and quaint!

The staff were really nice. My room came with breakfast which is usually served from 7am. i had to run by 6.30am so they served me some simple breakfast at 6.15am.

The resort is probably a 15min walk to the famous Chiang Mai night market and a 10min drive (non peak) to the airport. So, the location is really good and it is quiet too for you to have a good night's sleep!
