The hotel is neatly tucked away from the busy streets of Chiang Mai. My partner and I shared one of the deluxe rooms off to the side close to the fountain that greets you as you walk in from the main entryway. The sound of running water was a pleasant spa-like addition to the overall ambience that De Naga already executes quite well. Our room was clean and comfortable with ample storage space, a shower with good water pressure and hot water, sufficient ac, and many power outlets. The hotel staff greeted us at all hours, and were very pleasant, even when we had to check out at 3 in the morning to catch a very early flight out of Chiang Mai. The breakfast buffet has a wonderful selection that appeals to western and Asian palates alike. We did not try out the hotel spa nor restaurant but if you supposedly visit the pool bar during happy hour, there is a massage therapist who offers mini trial massages according to a sign by the pool bar. We weren't fortunate enough to partake in that experience.The pool may be small, but aside from the happy hour, it was generally easy to find a lounge chair to relax on between dips. However, the pool wasn't large enough to really swim in. The hotel staff was kind enough to move the seating out of the rain when one evening, an unexpected downpour interrupted our pre-dinner drinks. The only downside of the hotel would be that when we inquired with the saleswoman who arranges tours and excursions, we were informed that the elephant park we had wished to visit was completely booked up and there were no availabilities for that park for another 3 weeks. She offered other excursions which she thought would interest us but thankfully declined and went out to check for ourselves. Apparently the elephant park we wished to visit had spots open for the very next day and would pick us up directly from the hotel. We're not sure if she was directly affiliated to the hotel or just operated from within the hotel lobby so no deductions from our rating here.
