aruntara was a lovely place to stay. The rooms were spacious and very nicely decorated, as is the lobby and the little courtyard. Didn't feel like an "standard" anonymous hotel at all. The staff are very helpful, they set us up with a great elephant tour. The spa was great too. It's about a 10-15 minute ride to the night bazaar and town centre area by tuk-tuk for less than 100 baht, and the hotel runs a free shuttle service every evening as well. The one thing I'd flag is that the pool doesn't get any direct sunlight and is very shallow, like 1.2 metres or something so don't plan on doing much swimming here. But there's plenty of other great things to do in chiang mai and I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay in the area.
