“A quite and envi friendly resort in Chiangrai”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2012

We went there last May 5-7, 2012, found a new luxury and quite and freindly environment area in the resort, no car allow to drive in the sleeping area, you can walk or take an electrict car service, running any time you request , A good decration in northern lanna style, but with modern amendnities. One night we face a heavy rain pour into our room through the roof, and note to the front desk, then thdy change our room with upgrade class room. Good western and asian buffet breakfast or order from menu, friendly staffs . We not hesitate to visit again whenever we go to Chiangrai again.

Room Tip: Choose an inner rooms are more quite and feel like in the tropical garden

Traveling from Bangkok up towards Chiang Mai, we spent a few nights at this hotel. It was clean, nice and well appointed, and the facilities were nicer than I would have expected. The service was a bit off, and there was nobody at the pool bar when we wanted drinks, but overall I would recommend. Also, the food was awesome.

The hotel is located to far from town, and there is nothing to see or do near the hotel. You would be better off staying closer to town. I would give this hotel a pass!

The grounds are very nice, and the rooms are nice. They have free WiFi. There is a problem with TV receiption, due to loss of signal.

The buffet breakfast was good, but nothing special.

We were on a tour and stayed two nights at this beautiful old fashioned resort that is somewhat dated but still has alot of charm. The hotel is spread out over a large area and we stayed in a quiet, convienient first floor room. Beds were comfortable and there was free wifi (very slow and weak), free water, chips and juice.There was also a safe and a coffee maker. Staff was helpful and pleasant. Breakfast buffet was in a separate building with many Thai and western choices.

The main negative is that there are no commercial facilities around this hotel--no restaurants, markets or ATMs. It is at least 4 or 5 kilometers from the center of town across the river. You need to use a tuk tuk or taxi to get into the heart of Chiang Rai which has a large night market, food court, entertainment and restaurants and ATMs.

This was a very nice property, on extensive pretty grounds, with a large swimming pool (though not sure how clean it was). The property was well maintained and rooms were good, with hard beds and fairly clean. The excellent breakfast buffet was served in a separate building. However, this hotel was not close to anything. It took a ten minute tuktuk ride to get into town, to the neat hilltribe museum above a Cabbages and Condoms restauant, to the night market and really anywhere.else.

Stayed here with family in 2 villas. Beautiful rooms and surrounds.

As others have said the pool area is a bit outdated and the resort is not that close to town.

The food was okay and the were mostly friendly.

You could do worse.

Although the rooms and lay-out were nice the whole place lacked atmosphere. The only time we saw anyone around was at breakfast when the people on tour holidays were around and then it was chaotic, I didn't really see why it was voted Luxury award 2010. The dining room reminded me of a big canteen, the swimming pool wasn't very inviting and the Coffee Corner and Bar were very dark .Although all the necessary facilities were there, there was no incentive to use them. Though I must say I had a very good foot massage at their Spa.
I felt that as the hotel was not walking distance to town, the hotel could have put on more than two bus trips to town each evening.
