"Beautiful old style chilled hotel with great service - shame food and drink overpriced "
Suite advertised as separate sitting room, instead only one big room, but everything else made up for it - beautiful local decor, gardens, spaces, very quiet (except our kids), and beautiful food and great friendly service from all staff. The big shame is overpriced food and drink, eg. $6 for a cafe latte, $18 for a glass or $80+ for bottle of wine.
I think their description was exactly what I pictured. An oasis in the old city of Chiang Mai. For people who appreciate the Lux boutique feel with lush landscaping and a beautiful 200 year old Tamarind tree. Even the taxi driver sending us to the hotel spoke highly of it’s beautiful grounds and decor. A word of caution, we stayed on the 2nd floor in the basic room which did not have a bath tub. I’m 5 foot 3 and felt that there might have been some design flaws in my room as the shower room was a little Low in height. I stayed in room 2203. Maybe one of the smaller rooms but if you are tall, you might just want to opt for the 1st level rooms.
"Garden of Delight"
Its nine years since I last visited this beautiful hotel and I was delighted to find that it hadn't changed. its many attractive colonial-style buildings with their white walls and sloping tile rooves is set off by enchanting mature gardens, brick pathways and open stairways. The staff are just as friendly and helpful, the Tamarind offers lots of little extras like fresh fruit, free guided walk and craft activities. I loved the exhibition of temple art in the covered walkway to reception. A nice pool, restaurant and spa are all popular. As a single traveller, my room was very well equipped and really pretty, sadly it was small and every noise or word from the adjoining room could be heard due to thin walls. Not so good as my neighbours chatted and watched the TV until late. It's also a shame that the rooms are dark as curtains are fixed and restrict light and a view of the garden. Not everything in life is perfect, I can forgive the Tamarind its shortcomings simply to enjoy its charm.
this has become one of our favourite hotels. The location is perfect, right in the middle of the night markets and such a pretty hotel. We are a family with 2 adults, 2 children and a grandparent. They put us in 2 rooms, one above the other and this worked really well. The staff communicate well and are kind. Plus breakfast was divine. We still miss the butterfly pea tea! A surprise was the complimentary 10 minute massage. We did not expect much and were blown away.
"Wonderful, peaceful place - yet in the middle of town!"
You wouldn‘t believe what a peaceful, tastefully designed and quiet hide-away is nestled right off the main street of Chiang Mai. But when you walk up the driveway towards the building, especially at night, it‘s an almost magical atmosphere.... The lobby is small, but exquisitely decorated with handcrafted pillows and a small art exhibition. THe rooms are spacious, clean and as well decorated with a few special pieces of art. We spent a day at the pool (almost by ourselves), enjoyed the very peaceful surroundings and the sounds of nature (coming from birds in the Tamarind Tree, which is growing in the middle of the property). As the hotel used to be a monastery, the hotel buildings are surrounded by lawns, trees and a wall, shielding you from the noise of the city. The food and service in the small restaurant located at the pool was fine and reasonably priced. We will definitely come back!
