Our family stayed at the Rawee Waree Resort Hotel for three days over the Chinese New Year holiday. Overall, a positive experience. The property itself is not huge but it is quite lovely, with a great swimming pool and a nice riverfront location. The rooms are clean and well-appointed. The staff tried very hard to be accommodating and helpful. Breakfast was acceptable but not award-winning. Lunch/dinner menu was perhaps limited, but the quality and value were quite good -- at least for the Thai cuisine. Other than swimming, there didn't seem to be any kid-specific activities, but to be fair, we did not investigate.
The location, though, is somewhat problematic. The hotel is situated within sight (and sound) of a major highway and is in the flight path of a military air base, so it doesn't always feel like a tranquil resort. At the same time, it's far enough from Chiang Mai that transportation is a bit of a hassle. Taxis into town must be booked in advance (at 400-500 baht per trip); transport back from town is challenging as few drivers know this new property. And once you're back at the hotel for the evening, it's fairly sedate -- the spa closes at 8PM and there's no neighborhood activity nearby to speak of.
Overall, a good experience but be sure that this property is consistent with your plan for Chiang Mai.
