Perfectly located in the center of the old moated city of Chiang Mai, Northern Thailand, Rachamankha is just one minute’s stroll to the old city’s most important and impressive temple, Wat Phra Singh; just 2 minutes stroll to the city’s newest and most exciting night market the Chiang Mai Sunday Walking Street Market, and a wide choice of bars and restaurants from local to international in style all within a few minutes’ walk of Rachamankha. Unique for a city hotel Rachamankha is renowned for its peaceful and very private atmosphere, and its incredible architecture. The hotel, just 22 rooms and 2 suites, is set in 2 acres of manicured grounds and the architecture pays homage to Chiang Mai’s golden age, the Lanna period, offering guests a unique stay in a unique property with a true sense of place. Rachamankha is also the only Secret Retreats property in northern Thailand.

We only spent one night here, but what a lovely experience it was. We had dined at the hotel on another occasion, and were taken with its beauty, and so decided to spend a night here. The architecture and the grounds are simply stunning, and it was so quiet and peaceful. Our room was beautifully decorated and the bed was incredibly comfortable; we slept very well here. We spent a lot of time by the pool - it's quiet and relaxing, and the cocktails were good. The breakfast was very good - rather than a buffet, it was a la carte, with a good selection of options that are cooked specifically for you - so it was fresh. The staff were very polite, professional and helpful, and we thoroughly enjoyed our short stay there.

We loved staying at this stunning, peaceful, wonderful hotel! The grounds and pool are beautiful and the staff was very kind and helpful. The pictures don't do it justice, but the hotel is just stunning and we were so sad we were only there a few nights. The hotel restaurant was also incredible - everything we ordered was delicious and our breakfasts were amazing too. It located on a quiet street which was easy to walk to and truly the most beautiful resort in Chiang Mai. We will definitely stay here again if we're back in Thailand!

The resort reveals itself when you walk through different courtyards peeling away different areas until you reach the pool. Architecturally, I would say it is understated, keeping in line with the luxurious rustic laidback cool. However, the rooms could use a little update. Just to cite a few examples, the room itself doesn't feel all that sophisticated as the exterior. This is where I think it is a bit of a let down. The understated feel is gone and it is now 'budget'. The air con hasn't been maintained for a bit and it rattles terribly. The mattress is overly firm and though it may be good for some, I would say it wasn't for me. The bathroom is very basic and the water pressure isn't fantastic. The entry doors though authentically designed, are ridiculous to use. The panels don't line up and it takes a bit of a brute force to pull or push both doors to align with the key strike box. Everything works of course but the experience from the first impressions just wasn't carried into the rooms. Perhaps it would have been good if the management have taken the time to refresh the rooms during the lockdown period. Also, as a ground floor room, I felt it a waste that there wasn't a little patio at least just to open it up. Breakfast is surprisingly so so. This is the first Thai resort I have been to that doesn't serve good local dishes. The friend rice is blend and the noodles rather tasteless. Stuck with bread and western breakfast the next 2 days. By no means a bad place to stay in for a couple of days. There are of course many good points about the resort. The staff were welcoming and attentive. There were no nasty surprises. And the location isn't bad. Will return to stay but hopefully will afford the suites. Or if they renovate the rooms at least (hopeful).

As beautiful as my previous visit 9 years ago but a shame that the start of this much anticipated, first international holiday in more than 2 years was marred by the failure of the hotel to pick us up from the airport. We waited for more than 45 minutes in the sweltering tropical heat. I called the hotel and the response was that the driver was caught in traffic although I knew the hotel is less than 10 minutes away and it was 9pm on a Friday evening. It turned out the driver was waiting for us at the international terminal although we had email confirmation for the domestic. There was no acknowledgement or apology by the hotel which was very disappointing.

Dear All @Rachamankha Thank you so much for a perfect stay. Supanee (Ice) - you made our stay, without your coordination and persistence we would not have had such a great time. Alay - thank you for your attentiveness. May all guests get to experience it. To the rest - thanks for everything, you guys are just superb. And last but not least - Khun Rooj - what a place u have! The word “exquisite” does not do justice. Thanks once again and we hope to see you soon.

This is a very stylish and elegant hotel in the heart of Chiang Mai old city. The buildings and gardens are beautiful and the bedroom itself very luxurious. The staff are all stunningly turned out with immaculate white and black uniforms and are all friendly and helpful. I had one meal in the restaurant and it was very reasonable. I got rather too used to be salutes to by the security guard as I left the grounds on my motorbike !

We live in Chiang Mai, so this trip was a "staycation" for us. Ten years ago we stayed at the Rachamankha on our first trip to Chiang Mai from Singapore. It was immensely stunning a property then as it is now. This is not your average luxury hotel; it is a museum, an Asian art center, a respite, a retreat, a look into the ancient past surrounded by Chinese, Burmese, Thai, and other Asian antiques and objects d'art. Among these artefacts are: numerous ceramic Chinese dragon planters, Han dynasty tomb figures and horses, hundreds of antique Chinese blue and white porcelains, celadons, oriental carpets, antique Thai watercolors, chased and repousséd Thai silver bowls, lacquerwares, swords, multiple Thai and Burmese Buddha statues, Chinese and Thai furniture, Burmese pieces, and much more than I can type for this review! The upper gallery is not to be missed. There is a library on site. A pool, with a pool bar and massage building upstairs, is surrounded by lovely gardens and walls of hedges. Every architectural detail reminds one of Chinese merchant's mansion. There are modern paintings displayed in one dining room. Outdoors is a dining area with a fireplace for chilly January evenings. The flower arrangements are superb! Bonsai trees are in a few areas. The rooms are filled with Chinese furniture and are very comfortable. We had a king -sized bed, four poster, with mosquito drapes, which made the atmosphere even more romantic, though we had no mosquitoes! The food offerings are varied: Chinese, Thai, Burmese, Vietnamese, and European. Impeccable service! I want to add that true luxury hotels know how to fold napkins to make them etiquette perfect for one's lap. The seam and fold are already there to protect your hands and clothing. That is a small detail but impressive! Service everywhere is friendly, attentive, competent, and knowledgable. The tableware is Jingdezhen blue and white porcelains. All the food was beautifully served, fresh, and delicious! Our only disappointment was not seeing Kun Rooj, the owner, and Kun Zaw Lin Tun, the manager. We would have wanted to express our appreciation in person!
