The Chedi Hotel did not disappoint in any areas. For one that is truly fussy and "picky" about accommodation it was difficult if not impossible to fault

We stayed in the The Chedi Club Suite room with our own day bed on the deck. It was the small things that set this hotel apart from all the other hotels.

From the facecloths and water at the pool, the daily stocked mini bar, the evening happy hour drinks that were free at the club lounge, the bug spray they offer you at dinner to the overall service and happiness of the staff

The restaurant was divine - yes it is a lot more expensive than most of the Chiang Mai restaurants but the food is truly divine and the portion sizes are quite large!

I can assure you that if you are hesitating whether to spend the extra $ on this or not please do - you will not be disappointed and we will be going back very soon. All other places we have stayed at since we use The Chedi as a benchmark. The problem is we are now so unhappy at all other resorts and hotels :(

This is one place that we talk about regularly!

Enjoy! :)

This is the first time I am so impressed by a hotel that I am moved to write a review. Loved the hotel layout and the design from the website. The real thing was even more magical; very well maintained, very functional. The services of the whole team there was spot on. They were not intrusive but each person from conceige to the waitress seems to know you personally and remembered my requests and preferences. Nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was sumptious too. Highly recommended and glad I chose this hotel over the other bigger name 5 stars resorts.

After a couple of weeks business in Asia, checked into the Chedi for some much needed R &R. Its everything it says on the proverbial tin. Well designed, well appointed, rooms, very comfortable beds and a great view over the river. Food is outstanding - mixture of Korean, Thai Indian or Global so we were happy eating 4 of 5 nights..... wonderfully attentive staff.....and brilliant GM - I had only one special request after 2 days and it was granted and delivered within 30 minutes.... that's what I call wonderful service. This is a good spot and if this is the low season, we sat out every day, enjoyed dinner outside 3 of the 4 nights....Elephant Trail excursion well worth it too...... Hard to please but The Chedi delivered.

Room Tip: Upgrade to whatever they call the room with day bed on the balcony.......and club lounge, they are c...

Dear LesleyR,

Thank you very much for staying with us and for sharing your feedback here on tripadvisor.

I am glad to know that you found the much needed R&R time here at The Chedi and that we were able to help you recover from a stressful trip.

Thank you for the kind comments on the entire team and the level of our culinary quality. I noticed your closing remark on the room category. It was a Club Suite that you purchased an upgrade to. We provide Club benefits for all of the Club Suites, e.g. complimentary return airport transfers, complimentary minibar with Gin, Vodka, Whiskey (refilled once daily), complimentary laundry (7 pieces per day) and complimentary cocktails and canapes at the Club lounge in the evening. Wi-Fi Internet connection is complimentary for all our guests.

I hope we may welcome you again in the not too distant future.

Best regards

Went here for our second week of honeymoon and stayed in a suite, one word, AMAZING!

We loved it here, food was excellent, atmosphere was soooooo relaxed and the staff were incredibly attentive.

Cannot recommend this hotel enough.

We were very fortunate to be guests at a wedding of friends at The Chedi.
It is regarded by Thai people as the best hotel in Chiang Mai and we could understand why. The grounds are beautifully kept, the staff gracious and attentive. The wedding reception was beautifully catered and suited the western pallet. Dessert was memorable.
Highly recommended for a special occasion.

Dear LambsySydney,

Thank you for sharing your feedback here on tripadvisor.

I appreciate your kind comments on the whole ambiance of the hotel and in particular on the wedding function.

We have several weddings taking place here at The Chedi, as people appreciate the unique location of the hotel by the river and the design of the hotel which is well suited to host small and large weddings alike.

Once again many thanks and best regards

We sent a week in Chiang Mai and picked the Chedi expecting it to be a pretty good, small hotel and it has met and surpassed our expectations. We booked into the club suite room and it was just great (would have even been better if we got one of the higher floors we originally requested).

The service at the hotel was excellent and I cannot remember better service in all my other travels to date (and I travel a lot!). The pricing is a bit much for a normal vacation to Chiang Mai but we had a special occasion so didn't mind spending a bit more than usual.


If price is not an issue and you want a really nice overall experience, you cannot go wrong with this one. The only complaint is that there are some large wild life noises early morning that can affect sleep quality but I am guessing it's because it is so near the river.

Room Tip: High floor, river view.

The Chedi's hospitality began with their chauffeured Mercedes collection at Chiang Mai's airport. Sam their chauffeur kindly enquires of our flight is laden with cool drink and cool towel. Ahhh, we chorus - we've arrived! A short, smoothe ride and we are at the Chedi. Behind an understated entrance hides a Feng Shui heartland of tranquilty and peace. Easy on the eye with it's perfect placement immediately induces letting go and embracing the moment. The Australian architect had to have fullfilled his brief!?
It's our second stay here, and it won't be our last. As was last year we stayed 'Club'. We believe it is the only way to enjoy the Chedi.
Guest rooms are spacious and airy with excellent amenities. Room maids spin their magic while we are away and re-stock fresh fruit, tea, nuts, and the fully stocked bar, together with fresh towels and linen. Toiletries including lovely bath salts.
Wi-Fi a bit slow (best time early in the am), but it seems how it is in Thailand.
Breakfast in the club lounge has plenty of fresh tropical fruit, juices, cereals, yoghurt, cheese, cold meat, a small menu of individually cooked eggs which were always perfect. (I couldn't go past eggs florentine), high quality smoked salmon on the side. In the main alll staff made great coffee to individual's requirements (and remembered your preferance). French champagne at breakfast, also available. (a bit decadent, but we indulged!!!).
Magic time is their 6 - 8 pm cocktails and canapes, where the seven club staff gracefully tend you. Accompanied by candles and soft music we are transported into an intimate space of chit chat. The club staff have a refinement reminiscent of Japan's Geishas, and we felt very safe and comfortable in their presence.
The ambient pool is situated in q quiet private area, overlooking the Ping river and close to the hotel's shrine built as protection to the guests, staff and the environs. In the early morning staff place offerings in a state of reverence. We quietly observe while using the pool.
Chiang Mai's night markets are an easy three minute walk up the road, where there is excellent art galleries nearby. The Chedi will helps with elephant and tiger excursions which will fill your cup as well. Without hesitation we recommend the Chedi Chiang Mai to you.
