We stayed at Oriental Siam Resort for our the second part of our honeymoon in February. For the first four days we had stayed in Chiang Mai's old town, but wanted somewhere quieter for the second half.
We both loved the hotel, and the only downside is literally how far away it is from everything. I knew that it was on the outskirts of Chiang Mai, but I hadn't realised that there was nothing in the the vicinity. This isn't really a problem as there is always a car on hand to take you wherever you need to go and to take you back again (for a price of course, but it's not too expensive), however I prefer to walk to dinner and various attractions and this just isn't possible here.
The resort is small and very charming. The owners Pongsri & Peter - as well as Nat and everyone at the resort - go out of their way to make you feel welcome and like one of the family. Every day we found Peter in the resort garden, with his dog, Hero close at his heels. I've never seen a person put so much effort into a garden!
The breakfasts were lovely, sitting on the little restaurant deck overlooking the pond, and stir fried pork dish (lunch) is to die for. My husband really enjoyed their coffee, and it apparently provided an excellent kick-start to the day.
Our room (Jasmine Villa), was very spacious with an enormous bathroom, dressing room, and two decks, including one private deck with a small table and chairs that was not overlooked by anyone else. On our return to the hotel in the evenings, our bed would be turned down with rose petals, and various other touches for our honeymoon.
We both had a lovely stay, and would definitely recommend the resort as long as you don't mind being a bit out of the way. If you're looking for peace, quiet and relaxation then Oriental Siam is just the ticket !
