“Great hotel - quite noisy some times”
Reviewed September 16, 2009

Although being little bit disappointed by the remainders of Chiang Rai's Golden Triangle legacy, we spent 2 nights at this resort in Chiang Rai to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings of the hotel.

Great breakfast - the cook even comes around with all kinds of delicious stuff (like the freshly baked croissants) besides the extensive choice at the buffet. Rooms were great and we even got a piece of cake for our honeymoon delivered in the room.

Only "con" is the fact they are still building the hi-end suites near the pool they want to complete by beginning of the high season. This drilling was really annoying and even after our complaints they kept going on for a while.
Apologies were offered number of times and we even got a compensation present and personalized letter from management. A shame for such hotel, 'cause in the end we couldn't fully enjoy our stay.
Felt like this was a calculated risk of some people complaining in the low season against the interests of investors...

Wrt location: shuttle service is provided (only 5 times a day to the city centre). Or, need taxi or tuk-tuk to get there to/from.

Expensive bar (no happy hour) - 6 euro for cocktail

My husband and I spent three nights at this hotel and it was the best place we stayed in Thailand. The hotel is beautiful with a gorgeous open air lobby. The rooms are spacious and very nice and the breakfast is delicious – we enjoyed thoroughly. We took advantage of the daily free activity (kickboxing, etc) and went to the Spa. The pool is beautiful and we found the resort very well taken care of. We would love to go back and felt very well taken care of while we were there. The hotel is walking distance to some local restaurants that we enjoyed at night. We celebrated my birthday and our anniversary while there and the hotel was lovely and provided us complimentary cakes in our room.

Thank you for this review - and your positive comments. How wonderful to know that you took part and enjoyed the daily activities programme - really very impressive.
We always share all and any guest feedback with our associates...and I shared your remarks with our team, especially our landscape and pool team...and they were particularly pleased. Thank you for taking the time to write down these kind comments.

With kind regards from Northern Thailand

My experience in Le Meridien started in a rainy evening, we arrived to the hotel at dark and our first sight was an open air lobby with stunning décor and lights. We were greeted by a very nice lady and received ice tea and towels.
The rooms are huge and beautiful, beds are comfortable, and bathrooms are amazing. The gardens and landscape surrounding the hotel and the swimming pool area are also amazing. Breakfast was really outstanding. We spent 2 nights there (2 families with teenagers) and wished we could have extended our visit. Chiang Rai area is also amazing so don't miss it if you are planning a trip to the North.

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
