“One of the best stays I've ever had”
Reviewed July 4, 2012

I loved this hotel. When I first arrived I felt unsure as I'm only used to large hotel chains and this was smaller, quiet and family-run. However when we arrived we were given a warm welcome by the family/staff and they were so friendly. Pepe, who runs the hotel, was the highlight of our stay. She was helpful, kind and the cooked the best food I've ever tasted (and I'm not exaggerating!). She drove us into town and took us round the markets. We could chill out in our hotel room whilst she and the staff cooked our meals. She hired ladies to come round and give Thai massages and provided a laundry service. Most of all, she was a very kind and charitable person.

The hotel itself is very nice and the bedroom are huge. We got 2 rooms between 3 people but realised we didn't need to do this since we didn't know the rooms would be so big. The photos make the rooms look smaller than they actually are, they don't do them justice! They were clean and air conditioned so no need to worry about that.

Had a wonderful chilled out holiday staying at the Golden Cupids. My room was very spacious and spotless and I had a lovely balcony overlooking the pool and gardens. Peppe and her family were very helpful and made me feel so at home. Meals were generous and so delicious and I had the offer of being driven into town by the family if I needed to. Could not fault the hotel and it was wonderful waking up to hear the birds singing and to walk around the grounds. I have been to Chiang Mai on numerous occasions and would definitely go back and stay at the Golden Cupids but would hire a car next time.

Room Tip: Very quiet and peaceful location and about 20-30 minutes drive to the city.

A little out of Chiang Mai but the Pepe was extremely helpful with transport,we were given a lift to get our bus tickets in advance.A great place for us as we were visiting places outside of Chiang Mai. Lovely spacious room, pool a little disappointing but not what we were there for. When we go back we will stay longer to see more of the city Pepe and her family couldn't have been more welcoming, the food was fantastic, especially the banana pancakes for breakfast, and my son will definitley return so that Pepe can teach him to eat spicy!!

This was our first visit to Thailand and we could not have picked a nicer place to stay.Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. People coming or going are warmly greeted by parties of staff. Rooms are extremely large and immaculate with everything one needs but not fancy decor.The semi-outdoor restaurant, run by the family, is comfortable,and the food is excellent. You will be well cared for and get service like you have never experienced, all for an incredible price.

We had a fantastic experience at golden cupids but it will not suit everyone.
Who does it suit?
- Families and couples
- People who like a more rural setting to the hustle and bustle of downtown
- Those who don't mind having to pay for transport (mostly 1 way) to get to any of the activities around Chang Mai
- Groups that plan to go on lot's of short trips where location is not such an issue
- Anyone who likes home cooked meals, fantastic friendly service in a family environment
- Anyone who must have a huge room, free wireless internet and a pool at a reasonable price.

If you want to walk out your door and be close to the action then this is probably not the place for you.

Highlights for me were
1. Willingness to go out of their way to help organise anything : Pickup at the airport, numerous trips ( bike tour, tigers, zip lining, hill tribes trek, spa treatment), printing of documents.....
2. The fact that they organised a separate room at very reduced rates when my girlfriend was sick
3. Smiles and laughter. All the girls seemed to be constantly happy which was infectious.
4. Pineapple curry which kept my girlfriend happy almost every night but this is a personal preference.

Golden Cupids very much lives up to its Tripadvisor reviews. Peppe and family are terrific hosts, They go out of their way to make sure guests, feel welcome, have what they want, and that expectations are exceeded.

The semi-outdoor restaurant, run by the family, is comfortable,and the food is excellent. One night my wife ordered a coconut based dish. About 5 minutes after ordering, the waitress (Peppe's daughter) came over to our table and pointed to a tree and said "look, my brother is picking your coconut".

Rooms are large and well appointed.

As others have pointed out, it's a distance from town, but the staff will drive you in or find transportation. In actuality Golden Cupid is as much a resort as a hotel, so being away from town is a good thin in some ways.

One minor negative: internet service was inconsistent.

Room Tip: We paid a bit extra for a balcony room. It was worth it,.

Golden Cupids is set in large attractive grounds on the edge of Chiang Mai. The food was good and the staff very friendly, helpful and always smiling.

Pepe, the owner, is an amazing, caring and friendly lady who is very involved in charity in Chiang Mai. She has time for everyone and we could have listened to her for hours, as we learnt more about local society and culture from her than we did anywhere else in our four weeks in Thailand. A different and great experience.
