Generally the hotel is nice.. Clean overall.. But the housekeeping doesn't clean up the room hotel standard.. Entire stay my room sink and floor wasn't swept.. We never tried the hotel food! Please set your alarm even after asking for wake up call or else you will miss the flight.. Staffs are nice but can be a little trouble when...

I apologise that you found our housekeeping did not meet your expectations. I was surprised because we have put a lot of effort into improvements and both internal and external audits have found a improvement in quality. I therefore interviewed the staff who looked after your room. They said that in order not to disturb you unduly on a day...

My husband and I stayed here for a week and we did enjoy the tranquility and quietness, having the pools basically to ourselves was lovely as there was only one or two other guests at the time we were there. Our room was gorgeous, the huge jacuzzi was a very nice touch except it took a long time to fill...

Lovely resort hotel, clean comfortable and best of all the small things, like slippers, gown and something you seldom see a DvD player in the room, then all the stuff you would expect, kettle, umbrella's pools towels really fantastic value for money.

I am sorry that you had problems with your hot water. I know that an engineer went to repair it twice, but we did not know that the problem had continued.

We had a great time in this hotel. We enjoyed our time here. The area is central to many attractions. And it was easy to plan trips from here because everything (accept the city) was very near. The staff was professional and very friendly. The resort is beautiful and the hotel rooms are spacious. The food was delicious also for...

We spent 6 nights in the resort and we felt like living in the beautiful botanical garden. We had a lot of fun in the swimming pools, sauna, fitness club, swan-like boats, bicycles, playground, watching DVDs selected from a nice hotel collection and walking around the park. We admired the mountain views, feeling so happy and relaxed. The hotel staff...

We stayed here as part of a vacation package, and we were very happy with the choice. Yes, you are away from the central part of Chiang Mai, but it was an easy taxi ride into town. We had a family villa with 2 rooms, separated by doors, which was very nice. We had no problems with ants or other...

I chose this resort because I was looking for a stress relief break from coping with the tourist choked coastal area, where as a retired Ex-Pat I live several hours from Bangkok.

I would give 2.5 stars if I could. Mainly because the overall friendliness of the staff was wonderful. We booked a Family-Vacation-Villa which was actually just 2 adjoining rooms (more or less) for 3 nights. The 2 villa rooms were separated by doors requiring different room keys. We stayed in rooms 15 & 16. Room 15 was the room with...

The rooms that you occupied are not family rooms. Your booking asked for 2 king beds and my staff gave you 2 adjoining rooms with this set-up. They would have been more advised to discuss your requirements upon check-in and I apologise for that as well as the instances of ants in your room. Our fitness room had all of...
