I came to Chiangmai around 4-5 times and stayed in different places. This place is small and not located in a busy area like night bazaar. Good thing is I checked in at 8 am. and I could get into my room right away. The chauffeur of hotel van gave us many tips with how to travel and start fare for tuk tuk and red bus. Also, staffs here are very helpful and have service mind which you may not find in a big hotel. The room is very clean and cosy. The spa, price is reasonable and good care from masseuse. The breakfast is not variety but I'm ok with it. Price is acceptable with view by the Ping river. It is quiet and good to relax. I will come back again.

Nice, but When compared, I like to stay at Sheik Istana Hotel and enjoy its 1-hour oil massage at Sheik Istana Hotel than that of the 2-hour spa at Aruntara and hotel itself. It's modern but a bit noisy when I stayed at 218 facing courtyard.
Limited choice in the breakfast.
I enjoyed swimming at the small-sized pool, especially for no one swimming over there.

Room tip: try the white elephant suite, it faces to the river and be far away from the main road.

Couldn't be happier with our stay at the Aruntara. It is a little piece of heaven in the busy (but lovely!) city of Chiang Mai.

The staff was extremely helpful and courteous. The breakfast was delicious. And the location is perfect. We only spent a few hours lounging at the hotel because we had so many activities packed for our time in Chiang Mai, but it was so peaceful hanging out by the beautiful pool.

The room was lovely with a beautiful jacuzzi, the hotel leaves a nice plate of fruit upon arrival, and our room overlooked the courtyard which was great!

Overall very happy with our stay at the Aruntara, highly recommend it!

Booked directly with the hotel during their promotional period. Room rate (at about 3000 over bath) came with a dining voucher at the hotel restaurant worth 300 baht which we used to order the yummy lanna platter, a 2 hr massage for 2 adults and transportation to and from the hotel and airport. The hotel rooms were spacious enough and comfortable too. The toilet and shower area is cordoned off by a sliding door (no lock) and the sink and tub are on the opposite side without a door. Breakfast was just adequate - the usual breads,eggs,sausages and ham plus some local options as well. The massage was just what we needed after our activity filled trip there. It's about 15 mins ride to the airport and to town as well. The motorbike tuk-tuk which only fits a maximum of 3 people is more expensive compared to taking the red mini-jeep kind of tuk-tuk which fits up to 8 - 10. The red mini-jeep always cost us 20baht per person to and from town. The staff and friendly and pleasant, willing to suggest places to go and eat as well.

- Hotel was very nice
- staff were very welcoming and friendly
- rooms were very nice, unique (e.g raised bed platform; doors opening to bath tub from bed etc) and clean
- restaurant and gardens were beautiful and well maintained
- food selection was good but hotel should definitely promote the restaurant more for general guests as well as spa which looked nice but you wouldn't know it's there
- that's partly driven by location, as the hotel is quite unique on the road compared to its surroundings and not near the other spas and hotels. Location isn't a problem to get around, you just need to call a tuk tuk which security will do for you
- overall great hotel, very nice and boutique. Would stay again
