We booked this hotel because of a last minute screw up with the hotel we had booked. It was Loi Krathong and every hotel in the city was booked solid. However, arriving at the resort, we were delighted! Beautiful grounds and buildings. Our rooms were comfortable with beautiful views. Breakfast, however, was fairly unappealing. And while there is a fitness centre, there did not seem to be a pool, which would have been nice. Front desk staff were friendly and tried to be helpful. Language was a bit of an issue. It is a good 20 minutes from the city centre. This was an issue for us, because there are a number of places even within the walled city that have a sense of calm and space and we had wanted to be in the city to enjoy the festival activities. What kept it from being a really good experience was the shuttle service ....it was over an hour late picking us up from our prior hotel which was blamed on holiday traffic. We then arranged for a van to take us into Chiang Mai that evening and pick us up at a designated spot at 11:30 pm. We left the resort 40 minutes later than planned and were left waiting for over 2 hours in the middle of the night, despite several phone calls by us in which we were reassured the driver was on his way, nearby or already there. It was only through the intervention of a friendly local that we were finally able to get the driver to the spot he had agreed to meet us. To their credit, they waived the usual shuttle fees. So, unlikely we would return, largely because Chiang Mai offers so many better alternatives within the city. I know because I have stayed at two of them.
