The hotel is modelled on a lanna palace. It looks like the pictures you see in a travel magazine. It is simply beautiful. The rooms are cool and minimal yet furnished with antiques. The pool is large and perfect to swim laps in. The library is complete with brandy, books, newspapers and computers. The gardens are peaceful and relaxing. The service was wonderful, the waiting staff were available to bring cocktails to the pool, the rooms were cleaned at least twice a day and the manager, Paul, was available to give helpful local advice. The rooms have no personal balcony however the hotel is quiet and serene we didn't feel this mattered. I wish I was there now. Another important consideration was the tasty and extensive individually prepared breakfast.
The only possible downside could be the very occasional noise of dogs from the street when relaxing by the serene pool, however that was the only 'noise pollution' I heard. The hotel is in a quiet location near a larger street.
Location: pleasant walk to taepae gate approx 10mins or a cheap tuktuk ride. Also a cheap tuktuk ride to the night market. Walking distance to many temples.
In summary: amazing place to stay on our honeymoon. If you go to Chiang Mai stay here!
