The hotel is really one of its kind in Chiang Mai. First arrived at airport, was welcomed by friendly hotel staff, which transfer us to the hotel. The location which is not in the town centre makes it really quiet and serene facing the Ping River, however if you were travel to town it is only a 5-10 minutes journey away. The Moroccan style hotel really amazed us not only with the design and comfort but is the people that really makes our stay memorable. Owners of the hotel has been really kind, welcomed us, and even guide and bring us around the town. In the hotel, we could see the details of efforts which the owners has put in. Every pieces and every corner, they have search for the best suiting furniture and accessories all the way from Middle Eastern countries. The food at the restaurant also served some authentic middle eastern food, and fusion of western food as well. Not to mention, what's so unforgettable, is the owner's homemade recipe of Beef Dish. It is simply "Beefilicious". Overall my first trip to Chiang Mai is really AMAZING, with the great hospitality provided by the Sheik Istana owners, staff and the local community. Definitely a must try hotel if you were to travel to Chiang Mai.
