Had four days here from 1st June. Gorgeous river view deluxe room with lovely balcony. Lots of space in room comfy bed,great bathroom & good aircon.Nice lobby area. Lovely spaces around the hotel,felt very open & airy. The whole design in fact is wonderful. I loved it!!!
Only small complaint is that you had to pay for wifi in the room,but I could go just outside the room for free wifi? Seemed a bit pointless & all of the other hotels we stayed in had free wifi,but not such a big deal.Plus towels could do with an upgrade, again not a big deal.
They let us have a late check out without any problems,Eddie was great on reception & a very helpful young man.All the staff were lovely & very helpful. They also arranged for us to use the free shuttle to drop us off at the bus station rather than charging us for the hotel car,it was pouring with rain & they took great care of us.
We had a nice meal in the Italian restaurant on our first night & had a few cocktails at the happy hour in the bar,very nice.
Wonderful breakfast area,we ate outside every morning. Service was very good,came to check on us if we needed more coffee etc. Plenty of choice at breakfast.
Pool area very nice,right on the river so peaceful & serene.
All I can say is I wish I was there right now. We shall be back.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The resort occupies an idyllic 26-rai site directly on the banks of the Mae Kok River, moments from Chiang Rai town and a one hour drive from the Golden Triangle where the borders of Thailand, Laos, and Myanmar converge. The resort is set at the heart of beautiful landscaped gardens complete with a tranquil man-made lake and two majestic 100-year-old rain trees. Surrounded by magnificent mountain scenery, the neighbouring community is a jewel waiting to be explored. Nearby attractions include Rai Mae Fah Luang, Le Méridien's chosen UnLock Art site, and Oub Kham Museum which houses a collection of objects from the ancient Lanna kingdom, Myanmar, southwest China, and Vietnam. Nearby attractions include Wat Phra Kaew, the temple that once housed the Emerald Buddha, and the Hill Tribe Education Centre with its fascinating display of tribal artefacts and handicrafts. Boat trips along the Mae Kong River are available from the town of Chiang Khong, with stops along the way at villages of interest. Ethnic groups living in the province include Karen, Lisu, Lahu, Akha, Meo, and Yao, and it is possible to arrange treks into the hill tribe villages with experienced local guides. Mae Sai is 62 kilometres north of Chiang Rai and makes for an interesting day trip. This busy trading post borders Myanmar, and it is possible to cross the bridge to visit the bustling market in Tha Khi Lek. Phu Chi Fa is a spectacular viewpoint. The impressive views are best enjoyed early in the morning, particularly in the cool season when mist covers the valley floor. A highlight to any trip to Chiang Rai is a visit to the Doi Tung Development Project. Started as a royal initiative to help eradicate opium supply, drug use, and rural poverty, the project offers villagers with a practical and sustainable alternative. The project focuses on development, education, training, humanitarian activities, environmental conservation, agriculture, and the production of quality crafts. At the summit of Doi Tung, visitors can visit Phra That Doi Tung, a chedi constructed in 911 A.D and one of the oldest and most sacred sites in northern Thailand. The chedi is said to contain the collarbone of Buddha. Le Méridien Chiang Rai Resort, Thailand is located close to the town centre and a short drive from Chiang Rai Airport. ... more less
