“Idyllic Retreat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2009

This is a newly opened hotel (6 months old at the time of writing, July 2009). I don't think the classification of a Bed and Breakfast does justice to such a charming hotel and the very personable staff that runs the hotel.

This modern boutique style hotel is a pleasant welcome in Chiang Saen, where all other accomodation are quite simple and basic. It has all the modern amenities in the room, including a flat screen LCD that works with colour. You know how valuable it is, as often, even in big cities like Bangkok, 5-star hotels don't have workable TVs.

Being a 6-storey structure, it does not try to overcome the beautiful scenery that is Chiang Saen and the Golden Triangle.

I certainly welcome a beautiful hotel as such in Chiang Saen, and I believe many travellers would too. It would just be better that some reference be made to this idyllic town. Although Chiang Saen is part of the Chiang Rai Province, but Chiang Rai City is about 50km and an hour's drive away.

The General Manager, Ginny, is the single most effective and hardworking GM I have known. Walk into any 5-star hotel in other cities, and I bet you cannot talk to the GM there if you have a problem. Ginny, on the other end of the spectrum, has taken great trouble to ensure her guests are well-informed about the town, and their logistical requirements taken care of.

This Chiang Saen town can be a bit quiet at night. I guess if you want to travel to the Golden Triangle, it would be best to arrange a few friends.

A corporate retreat would be great too. This place certainly has all the makings of a successful corporate retreat.
