Although this hotel is a 30 minute drive from the city centre, it is situated in a beautiful part of Chiang Mai in the luscious green hills on Mae Rim. There are still many attractions in the district though (Orchid & butterfly farms, series of animal shows, ziplining, waterfall, ATV etc,). We stayed in a standard garden room and it was quiet well equiped for a basic room. The bed was hard, however you will find that most beds are in Thailand. You get complimentary coffee, tea and water and a good variety of things to purchase in the mini bar. One annoying thing was that every time you took the room key card out all power would go out, including the fridge! The premises has a lot of cool activities for guests such as; riding the swan boat in the lake, fishing, fish feeding (donations go to local orphanage), sauna, 2 pools, free bicycle hire and scooter hire. Every single staff member there was extremely lovely (however I honestly believe this is a trait of people from Chiang Mai). Taxi to the airport/city is 600bht. The restaurant food was perfect and reasonably priced. I really enjoyed my time at Away and will most definetly be recommending it to others.
