My wife, our adult son, and my brother-in-law and his wife spent two nights in this hotel in Chiang Rai as we explored the Golden triangle. The hotel is beautiful in a minimalist, contemporary style and I liked the feel of the hotel lobby, the library, and the room we had on th first floor of the main building. Our... More

I stayed here as a solo traveller and had a fantastic stay. Room was large and a nice balcony. All the restaurants were excellent and the evening buffet was excellent value. No criticisms at all. I would recommend requesting a ground floor room though.

Hi, Stayed here for five days in late March. The hotel was very quiet in respect of the number of guests staying here for the duration of our stay. We had no idea why this occurred, apart from the adverse media regarding the political unrest in Thailand in the months leading up to our stay. March also wasn't the best... More

We stayed for three nights and were very impressed by the entire resort. Rooms are clean, comfortable and quiet, and the service is professional and attentive. The only down side if you don't have your own vehicle is that you will require a taxi to get into town.

Chiang Rai has relatively few hotels, and certainly very few that are 4/5 star, the Le Meridien Chiang Rai is by FAR the best hotel in the city, and features a classic charm that is missing from many newer properties. We were there for a work function, so having a hotel which has prompt service and good rooms was paramount.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
