Suansawan Resort Chiang Mai
Ranked #7 of 19 Hotels in Mae Rim
Reviewed June 27, 2009

AS soon as you arrive there is a feeling of warmth from all the staff.

The rooms are clean and spacious with everything you need readily available.

We did not use the spa but others that did were impressed with the facilities.

We were advised where to go for days out and booked them at the hotel. Having an English owner helped with this.

Compared to other stays in Thialand the food was more interesting and varied.

This is such a beautiful resort with the lake, ponds, waterfalls and so many trees and garden areas. The surrounding views of the mountains are awesome. My wife and I enjoyed using it as a base to explore the surrounding area and also relax in the garden or by one of the pools. We had a beautiful room on the lake edge, it was so tastefully decorated and we loved the 4-poster bed. The spa is just fantastic and prices seemed lower than we had experienced elsewhere. The huge circular Jacuzzi bath was fantastic for romantic relaxation after the treatments. Next time we will try the ‘detox’ program.
The service on the resort seemed naturally friendly; nothing seemed too much trouble to do, everything in the resort was clean and tidy, all day a team of gardeners were keeping the gardens in shape. Sometimes little touches make a hotel, I was impressed by the free Wi-Fi, it was such a change not to be charged and also the free DVD rental ,not that we had much time to use it - but we did use the very nice fitness room and the sauna. The resort is 20 minutes from the city but that was no hassle to us, we were able to trip into the city easily when we wanted to.
We will certainly go back to this gem, it is beautiful in a fantastic location, has good facilities and service and we found the prices very competitive.

An absolutely beautiful location, a truly garden paradise, having a big lake, large gardens, also two swimming pools. The staff were very friendly and helpful. My villa was situated by the side of the lake with a wonderful view. I was truly pampered in the magnificent spa. The huge round spa was simply amazing.
My villa was situated by the side of the lake with a wonderful view. It had a king-sized bed and was tastefully decorated in a Thai style. I enjoyed sitting in the large outdoor restaurant looking across the gardens to the mountains. There was also an air-conditioned restaurant inside.
It was a good twenty minutes from the city and required a taxi ride as there isn't a free shuttle, although a trip was organized to the famous night market.

If it's peace and tranquility you want in a beautiful setting then I can recomend this hotel. The resort has recently been renovated to a high standard and attention to detail. We found the staff to be friendly and attentive without being intrusive. The rooms and beautiful grounds are very clean and exceptionally well maintained. Although the location is several kilometers outside of Chiang Mai it is in some ways more convenient for many of the area's visitors attractions. Given the time we would have stayed longer and will definitely return when next in the area.
