Certificate of Excellence
The resort occupies an idyllic 26-rai site directly on the banks of the Mae Kok River, moments from Chiang Rai town and a one hour drive from the Golden Triangle where the borders of Thailand, Laos, and Myanmar converge. The resort is set at the heart of beautiful landscaped gardens complete with a tranquil man-made lake and two majestic 100-year-old rain trees. Surrounded by magnificent mountain scenery, the neighbouring community is a jewel waiting to be explored. Nearby attractions include Rai Mae Fah Luang, Le Méridien's chosen UnLock Art site, and Oub Kham Museum which houses a collection of objects from the ancient Lanna kingdom, Myanmar, southwest China, and Vietnam. Nearby attractions include Wat Phra Kaew, the temple that once housed the Emerald Buddha, and the Hill Tribe Education Centre with its fascinating display of tribal artefacts and handicrafts. Boat trips along the Mae Kong River are available from the town of Chiang Khong, with stops along the way at villages of interest. Ethnic groups living in the province include Karen, Lisu, Lahu, Akha, Meo, and Yao, and it is possible to arrange treks into the hill tribe villages with experienced local guides. Mae Sai is 62 kilometres north of Chiang Rai and makes for an interesting day trip. This busy trading post borders Myanmar, and it is possible to cross the bridge to visit the bustling market in Tha Khi Lek. Phu Chi Fa is a spectacular viewpoint. The impressive views are best enjoyed early in the morning, particularly in the cool season when mist covers the valley floor. A highlight to any trip to Chiang Rai is a visit to the Doi Tung Development Project. Started as a royal initiative to help eradicate opium supply, drug use, and rural poverty, the project offers villagers with a practical and sustainable alternative. The project focuses on development, education, training, humanitarian activities, environmental conservation, agriculture, and the production of quality crafts. At the summit of Doi Tung, visitors can visit Phra That Doi Tung, a chedi constructed in 911 A.D and one of the oldest and most sacred sites in northern Thailand. The chedi is said to contain the collarbone of Buddha. Le Méridien Chiang Rai Resort, Thailand is located close to the town centre and a short drive from Chiang Rai Airport.

We don’t often review hotels but having just spent 4 nights at Le Meridien, feel compelled to do so. We are lucky to often stay in 5 star hotels across the world but this hotel impressed us way beyond our expectations and eclipsed all others. The property itself is beautiful

We stayed here for two nights in our short get away to Chiang Rai. It was not too bad as a resort by the Kok river. Had a river view room which was quite big and had a decent view. Facilities were not too bad as well, with a good gym and a decent pool. The breakfast Coffey was

This sprawling hotel complex is located within easy taxi reach of the black temple, the white temple, the blue temple and probably any number of other temples, plus the giant goddess of something or other. After a day exploring these sites in frankly ludicrous temperatures,

Greetings TripeAdviser, thank you for posting your positive review following your recent Chiang Rai adventures. Your compliments paid to our hotel are greatly appreciated and it is very rewarding for us to know that you were so happy with your Le Meridien Chiang Rai experience, the resort facilities, room comfort, dining and the quality of service provided by our team of associates. Wine is taxed very highly in Thailand and overall I am sure that you would have found our resort F&B prices comparable or even below that of other hotels of our category while continuing your travels throughout Thailand. TripeAdviser, your kind words have been shared with our Le Meridien team and we look forward to welcoming you back to stay with us again whenever your travel plans include Thailand's enchanting Lanna kingdom in the future. Kind Regards, Murali Viswanathan General Manager

This is going to be short. This is as top of line luxury hotel. It's a bit out of the center but so what. The rooms are huge and attractive. The pool is spectacular. It's easy to get a Grab (ride share) to take you to the White Temple or Black House. Not much more to say. If

Nice and relaxing view from our room.
Greetings sbdrsun. The shuttle provided as courtesy for resident guests stops over at the Central Plaza shopping centre and the area near the Night Bazar entrance road called Phaholyothin Road. Hope this assists. Best Regards - Murali - General Manager.

Greetings of the day parmesanp, thank you for considering Le Meridien Chiang Rai Resort for your March family holiday. Our resort is child friendly, with a kids club with scheduled activities, and a 3 tiered infinity swimming pool with one level being ideal for young kids. While the pool caters for children of all ages, it does not have slides and water park type equipment and is more suited for guests of all ages and family relaxation. The resort does not provide a child-minding service, please also note the kids club requires an adult present for children attending younger than 4 years of age. I hope this information is helpful to you and please feel free to reach out to me at the resort if requiring further assistance. Best Regards, David Sayer Le Meridien Experience Specialist
