This review is long, long, long overdue. My husband and I went to Thailand for our honeymoon and stayed at the Oriental Siam Resort during our stay in Chiang Mai. I was a little worried before coming here, knowing this resort was on the smaller side. However, it was hands down a truly excellent experience. The staff was beyond amazing, warm, friendly, and wonderful. We had a daily complimentary breakfast, made to order. The pool was nice and welcoming and the rooms were big and beautiful; each one was a little different, with its own personality. (We stayed in two different rooms because we booked the place rather last minute.) Our first room had its own garden. It was absolutely gorgeous. Our second one was simply gigantic, roomy, and comfortable. The staff just went out of their way to help us be as comfortable as possible.
The best part was unexpected and for this my husband and I are truly thankful - while we were driving into town, we booked a trekking/ziplining package called "ziplining with the gibbons" or something like that (with pooh's eco-tours). They were supposed to pick us up at 8am but had not arrived by 830/845 am and we started getting concerned. One of the owners of the resort came out, learned of the problem, and went back and called her inside contacts at the eco-tour company on a private line and cleared everything up for us (the tour company did not have our information for some reason, or it had gotten lost, I'm not entirely certain, but we had prepaid for the package). In less than 15 minutes, the eco-tour company van/bus picked us up and we were on our way for the day. I will never forget how wonderful she was in helping us. We didn't even have to ask! She just knew we were waiting for someone to come pick us up, saw that we had been waiting for awhile, asked what we were waiting for, and then went back and made some calls and helped us out completely unexpectedly. This is the type of service you cannot buy. Just a wonderful, wonderful group of people running this very well done establishment. My husband Robert and I will stay no where else in Chiang Mai; they have definitely won our loyalty. Thank you so much Oriental Siam Resort!
