Stayed for 4 nights in August. Lovely hotel, beautifully presented and maintained. Fabulous pool, service also very good. The only criticism was a little too much deep fried food on the evening menu, but apart from that a brilliant stay in a great setting (and that was in a normal room).

The hotel is nice to be at for a while, a tea on the river or maybe for teatime . The restaurant is car too expensive for the food And is totally modern. But the worry is that if you stay in the hotel, you can not move as you want. If you want to be close to the Ping river at 1230, you are not allowed. No matter everything is empty. I guess staff is trained to be as they think clients should be , nice or arrogant. To be positive, staying at the hotel does not mean you have to stay all time. Escape to ginger restaurant with its fancy show,. We moved after to rachamanka hotel , a relais & chateau hotel. Service was not perfect but at léase you stay in a terrífico lanna building with antiques. But money does not mean good taste, who said the contrary ???? Chiang mai has been changing And hopefully hotels like these are not full And are good only for trendy And stupid magaizine rankings.

Dear bonstanislas,

Thank you for staying with us and for sharing your feedback here on tripadvisor.

I sincerely regret that you have not enjoyed the style of the hotel, as your preference is a more traditional style of design. Taste cannot be argued about and I am very sorry if during your research for your trip to Chiang Mai you got the impression that The Chedi Chiang Mai has a traditional style. We feature many photos of our hotel on our own website and many previous reviewers have posted their photos here on tripadvisor. I hope that by reviewing these you will find that we indeed do not have a Lanna style design.

Our guests can enjoy most facilities of the hotel 24 hours a day, however if an area, e.g. the river terrace is booked for a private function we do reserve that space for this group prior to their arrival. I apologise if any inconvenience was caused.

Once again many thanks for your feedback.

Best regards
Stefan Noll

Spent three days in Chiang Mai in July this year. The Chedi is the first hotel I've ever stayed at that I literally did not want to leave. The architecture, the feel, the staff, the bar, the restaurant, the grounds -- everything was done with style, panache and a smile. Never once felt rushed by the staff.

Would return in a heartbeat. A true first class property in the middle of a city, in a country that loves their tourists.

Room tip: Ask for a room anywhere except the first floor - you lose a neat balcony experience and the lofted view of the common yard.

It's hard to know where to start attempting to list what's so good about this place: just about everything is.

First, the look of it and the layout: it's all very zen, with clean minimalist lines softened by the use of warm teak detailing. On entry you are taken to the stylish Club room for snacks as you sign in and your luggage makes its way to the rooms. Downstairs there is a soft-furnished and candle-lit seating area overlooking a lily-filled pool where local music adds to the evening atmosphere. Further on are separate areas for the restaurant and the pool, which are both near the swift-flowing river.

On to the rooms: we had 2 suites, which were very spacious with a king bed and a large day-bed so the kids had a large bed each. They also greatly enjoyed the inclusive minibar, doing their best to set a consumption record. The view was over the pool and the river, and was very attractive. The only thing that was slightly awkward was the arrangement of the bathroom doors: designed so that the bath could be either open to the room, for the romantically inclined, or closed off for those who prefer privacy, it was a little difficult to manipulate and made the space a little echoey. Nevertheless, just the sheer amount of space and in each suite was exceptional and we all felt very comfortable all the time, and visually it was all very pleasant.

The restaurant definitely deserves mention. You would expect that they would serve fine Thai food, which they do, and there is a range of light and spicy salads as well as the more usual meats and curries. As a bonus, however, they also do marvellous Indian food, including delicious dahl and excellent warm fresh breads along with good renderings of favourites like butter chicken. What sticks most in my mind, oddly enough, is the bread that comes at the beginning: you would expect a hotel in Thailand to provide quite the most tasty European-style bread you've ever had, but they do. Bear in mind, I'm not a carb freak: I don't think I've written much about bread served in other places, but this was so exceptional even amongst all the other wonders of this place that I have to mention it. The ambience of the place was romantic in the evening too: try to get a table overlooking the river, and if you go later (after 8) it's unlikely to be overly busy. The same restaurant does a decent breakfast in the morning, although with every guest attending it's rather more crowded and less atmospheric, but still better than most (e.g. individually ordered rather than buffet eggs, which always helps).

Fortunately with all this culinary excellence, the Chedi also has one of the best hotel gyms I've ever had the pleasure to use: lots of cutting-edge cardio equipment, a good selection of weight machines and free weights, as well as a yoga room. Like so many of these high-end places, hardly anyone seems to use it, which is even better.

We took a number of tours arranged by the hotel, around the City, to Doi Suthep, to an elephant ride and on a very long day all the way around the Golden Triangle. Whilst I suspect we paid at least double the rate that could be negotiated outside the hotel, it was all very well done with a patient and knowledgeable guide whom we gave a nice tip at the end. Pickup and return to the airport were seamless and faultless too.

All in all, this was an excellent and memorable experience and (other than the tours) really not bad value at all, given the quality. I would recommend a sojourn at the Chedi to anyone who can afford it.

Room tip: Get the suites - not much more expensive, but huge and include free bar and club room snacks. Also go for the top two floors if you can, as the views are better and you will see the river.

This is a fantastic hotel. It's modern, and stylish, but still very warm and comfortable - a perfect balance. I don't need to add much to what's written below but there is very little to fault. We stayed in a standard room which was perfectly spacious and comfortable. I'm sure the suites are even nicer. Highlights included: restaurant/bar/breakfast, daybeds on generous balconies, Nespresso-style espresso machine, pool, very well appointed gym, relaxing riverside location, excellent service from staff. The decor is fantastic and there were many examples of very well thought through details. A very slick operation, and worth the money (but if you don't stay, go to the restaurant - the food is very good and it's a great location by the river with a very "un-hotel" atmosphere).
