I had been traveling in SE Asia(Nepal,Lao) for almost six weeks when I arrived in Chiang Mai.Granted,my expectations were not high after the humble lodgings during the past weeks but I've been fortunate enough to have traveled A LOT all over the world.The Tamarind Village was pure paradise....absolutely what a great hotel should be.The surroundings are perfect...from the handmade tableware to the gorgeous traditional architecture to the beautifully appointed rooms(beds are fabulous!) to the wonderful food....I could go on and on.Chiang Mai is a busy,hot,frenetic place and the Tamarind Village made one feel very far away.It is quiet and lush.Other reviewers have pointed out the issue with the water pressure/tempurature in the shower...it's true,but it seemed such a non-issue in light of everything else.I dream of Tamarind village....

Have just returned from 2 weeks in Thailand, of which I spent 3 nights at the Tamarind Village. It is a beautiful tranquild hotel, which really has an effect on you in winding down. When I first arrived I assumed that there would be more to the hotel than there is, but there isnt! It purely consists of a pool, restaurant, and reception, and the rooms. This wasnt a problem, I was just surprised - the hotel excels in elegant simplicity. The staff are delightful, very polite and helpful, and the time we spent laying round the pool was truly relaxing, for a small hotel, it doesnt feel at all cramped. My only complaint would be that the rooms are slightly small, and ours was a little dark.
Chiang Mai itself was my favourite part of Thailand and was completely charming and very asian.

We were initially supposed to stay 2 nights at the Tamarind Village, but from the moment we arrived we were flabbergasted with the extremely friendly and helpful hotel staff, (speaking perfectly English), the spotless Thai hotel rooms with small little details making you feel appreciated as a special quest, the quietness, the peacefullness. Although the room rate is not quite cheap, we prolonged our stay with an other 4 nights. The not-too-big hotel with only 40 rooms, makes your stay relaxed. The hotel is located superbly in the middle of the old town, close to the major temples. Nevertheless, once on the premises of the hotel you do not notice the busstle of the city. We made several trips to National Parks and other sights outside of Chiang Mai. The food in the restaurant of the hotel is excellent. The breakfast buffet is as fresh and yummie as you could wish for.

We stayed here after two nights at the Baan Rai Lanna hotel, outside of Chiang Mai- what a difference! It was really like night and day and we were so relieved to check-in to the Tamarind Village. The service was smooth and efficient, including the receptionist that escorted us to the room and pointed out some of the hotel features and garden along the way.

The room itself showed great attention to detail. Everything was tasteful and well appointed. The one complaint I would have was that in our "Lanna Double Room" there was no ceiling fan and that forced us to use the rather bulky aircon for air circulation. The size of the room itself was also a bit small, but the room design and features made up for that.

The pool is quite nice and there are plenty of chairs to accomodate all of the guests. The restaurant is also by the pool, do it's nice in the morning to eat breakfast there.

We stayed for two nights and had an early checkout, but the hotel was willing and able to accomodate us for an early breakfast, no questions asked.

The bamboo lined driveway is beautiful in itself and felt like natural aircon after coming in from the sun.

We booked on Agoda.com, and this also made the rate very reasonable. Only regret is that we weren't there for the Sunday market. We did go to the Saturday night market, and this already was amazing. The Sunday one is supposed to be even better, and is right outside of the hotel.

We stayed at Tamarind Village in Chiang Mai Thailand for 2 nights last week. It was a near perfect stay.
Our room was comfortable, quiet, cool and simply decorated in typical Thai style. The bathroom was tasteful with excellent soaps etc and we were supplied with beautiful traditional style robes.

Breakfast consisted of western and Thai foods - almost everything that one would expect from a first class hotel. The service in the restaurant was impeccable and the food at both lunch and dinner excellent but rather more expensive than could be found outside.

A beautiful pool although rather shallow at one end and good loungers available. you are tightly surrounded by lovely grounds containing native plants and trees and the approach is impressive through an avenue of bamboo.

The Tamarind Village is a haven of peace and is highly recommended for those who wanted an understated but top end of the market experience.
