The Chedi in Chiang Mai has it all, the location, the grounds, the infrastructure and the "wow" factor which we all like so much at this hotel group. The services, the staff are exceptional, Thailand at it's best. A dream to be smiled at and attended to by such people.
But, some careless (and that is my very polite way of saying it ) architect spoiled it all by putting his views first without consideration for the purpose of what he was designing.
There are ponds everywhere, they look nice but are mosquito nurseries. Nowhere in Chiang Mai is there such a mosquito problem as here. Worse, in order for the building to look trendy he has omitted to isolate it from the street noise which, this being an asian town with trucks, tuk-tuks and mopeds, makes it impossible to sleep without earplugs ! Sad.
If you want to go there make sure to demand a room or suite away from the noise, only 10 % or so will fit the bill.
