We stayed here as part of our three week honeymoon to Southeast Asia. Our best day at the hotel was when we decided to take a break from exploring the city and just relax by the pool. We had excellent service all day! Very comfortable chairs with big umbrellas. Great drinks and decent lunch. When we had questions about the menu they sent someone over with great english to help us out. Staff came around with popsicles in the afternoon. Very quiet and relaxing, and the grounds are beautiful. The gym is also very nice, always appreciate complimentary cold towels!
Otherwise, we found the hotel to be very nice. Very helpful concierge service. Two cons could be the location and the wifi. The hotel is slightly out of the way from the main sites, but this didn't bother us at all as a tuk tuk ride is $1-$2, which the hotel will call for you, or you can grab one outside the hotel. We also didn't mind walking! The wifi also only seemed to really work in one part of our room, it was fine for us, but i could see how this could be very annoying for some guests. There are not that many upscale hotels in Chiang Mai so we found this to be a perfect option for our honeymoon.
We did not book breakfast at the hotel as we just walked to the starbucks every day, which was about 7 minutes away - towards the night market.
One other tip - check out Peak Spa a few storefronts down from the hotel towards the night market (ask the concierge for directions). We had great thai massages! The entrance is in a alleyway, so it seems a little weird at first, but it's a happening place. People coming in and out all the time. Great prices! We loved it there!
