The hotel is small , private and peaceful ; the rooms are spacious and well appointed...

I was treated exceptionally in my recent stay at the Aruntara. Jakrawan, Treerapon, Kong, and the rest of the amazing staff at this well situated, riverside boutique hotel, went out of there way to make me feel welcome. They even kept a straight face as I tried to speak thai to them, thanks guys! LOL

Check in was fast and also the only hotel I came across in Thailand that bothered to give you a map and explain a little about the surroundings. Very helpful if you need a taxi or tuk tuk and also recommended a couple of good restaurants. Only...

The aruntara is a beautiful little hotel with a very serene atmosphere, great service, killer piña coladas and a very soothing spa. I got their massage deal and I have to say it was extremely relaxing. The only downside is that it's a fifteen minute walk from the night bazaar which wouldnt have been too bad if not for the...
