Good service, spacious room, very comfortable. A closby local market is a big surprise, definitely worth visiting, many fruits and snacks to buy. My daughter loves the swimming pool. Good breakfast, you can order or just select those on table. Spa is fine. A bit far from the old town, but tuk tuk or minibus is convenient and price reasonable, only minutes to old town. Actually I think 20 minutes walk can also reach.

Not far from the old town (about 20-min walking). The hotel people are very friendly and helpful. Room is not quite big but the bed is pretty comfortable. Breakfast is simple but very nice. Just one tip: be aware of mosquito!!!

This is a wonderful oasis in the middle of town. The staff are wonderful, welcoming and friendly. we stayed with our daughter and son in law with 2 young children. The owner is a lovely person, who takes great pride in her boutique hotel. Our two bedroom suite was lovely. Breakfast was very nice with a choice to suite everyone. They have a bus/tuk tuk to take you to the markets which aren't far and are well worth a visit. I highly recommend staying in this hotel for your Chiang Mai stay.

The small resort is tucked away behind its street façade, not revealing the lovely and plentiful foliage within. The rooms were small, but clean and we appreciated the resort’s commitment to sustainability- particularly, the facility’s own soaps. The breakfast was lovely, with most items cooked to order- however, be prepared that it takes longer than you might anticipate so allow extra time if you have somewhere to be afterwards. The staff were generally helpful and friendly. The hotel is not right next to the Night Bazaar area, but transportation is easy and available.

My hubby, 4yr old son, elderly in-laws & I spent 4 nights at Shewe Wana. Booked a Deluxe Double room & Superior room. We took Thai Airways from Singapore and had to transit at Bangkok & hence the confusion as the staff was waiting for us at the domestic arrival area but we were at the international arrival side. Initially we thought the hotel had forgotten about our booking but we read such great reviews of the service and quickly made a phone call to the hotel and luckily it was sorted out within 15mins. It will be advisable to give the full flight details so that the hotel will know which arrival area to wait.

The staff were polite and helpful at all times. I like the bacon and banana pancake and had it for breakfast every day. On the first day we had the breakfast at the garden restaurant (outdoor) and thereafter we had breakfast everyday in the air-conditioned restaurant as the buffet counter had an Asian dish eg. noodles. There is a cosy café and it serves really nice Thai tea and delicious fried rice. There are computers with internet access at the café and while the adults ate lunch, my son enjoyed himself watching youtube cartoon videos.

The deluxe double room size is comfortable for two adults and a young child. We didn't need to get an extra bed for my son as the bed was big enough for the 3 of us. Wifi strength in the room is pretty good. Do like the quietness, greenery and flowers at the boutique hotel.

Personally I feel that the room could be cleaner. The pillow case had some stains and bed sheets are not changed daily. The toiletry counter in the toilet is a little dusty. My son got bitten quite badly by the mosquitoes so do ask housekeeping to burn mosquito coils outside the room and spray insecticides while you are out for the day. To get to the rooms, we had to walk a narrow walkway beside a small pool and I constantly worry that my son will fall into the pool especially at night because of the low lighting or on rainy days & it gets slippery. There is nothing outside the hotel but a small pharmacy across the hotel in case one needs medicine.

Tried the "All Inclusive Massage Package" which is a 2hr Thai traditional massage, hot herbal compress & foot massage. This massage package costs THB3,700 and without the free spa voucher worth THB1,500, I would not have spent on this.The massage is relaxing but pricey (Thai standards) as there are comparable cheaper alternatives in the city.

For the price of the rooms, it is value for $. Overall it is a pleasant stay.

Our family rented the big suite (in all of the photos) for four days this month and were astounded by the fantastic service, the patience of the staff, the cleanliness and the overall experience that made us feel relaxed and allowed us to enjoy our stay. First, they picked us up at the airport and were very kind. Most of the staff speaks english and they are very service-oriented. The room was cool, clean and spacious. The suite had a (free) mini-bar with sodas, tea and coffee. At breakfast -- which is amazing -- they remembered our favorites from one day to the next and offered us those dishes. They were attentive and kind and helped us understand how to get from one place to the next, calling cabs and tuk-tuks for us. One of the best travel experiences ever.

A lil piece of heaven in Chiang Mai. From the service at the main desk to the wait staff at the morning breakfast, which was absolutely delicious, this place gets 5 stars on all fronts.

As a first time traveler to Thailand and Chiang Mai, I relied heavily on the comments provided by TripAdvisor to book my hotel as I was arriving late at night and wanted to have a place booked beforehand. I'm so glad I came across this beautiful boutique property, which is eco-friendly to boot!

When I emailed the hotel advising them of my late arrival, they offered to send over a shuttle service for only $10 USD. I also appreciated their help in suggesting points of interest and with booking taxis etc. The free tuk-tuk rides to the Night Bazaar were nice touch too.

For $85 USD a night, you can't go wrong here....
