For once, i'm glad not trusting Tripadvisor, as they should be in top-5. This little charming hotel with only 24 rooms is Thai owned. This used to be a Relais and Chateaux (R&C), but don't worry, you'll get the same services and stunning hotel for a fraction of the price (which would mostly go for R&C fees...). They now belong...

This hotel is an oasis in the middle of the mad old city of Chaing Mei. The hotel is like something out of an old movie, and one expects Hercule Poirot or Humprey Bogart to stroll through one of the doors and no one would take any notice. My husband and I stayed for six nights and thoroughly enjoyed the...

What an amazing hidden gem of a boutique hotel. Our last night of our trip just ended on a high from the minute we walked in the gate. We could fault nothing....food, service, decor, rooms, ambience, staff, an amazing tranquil place and one we will return to.

We stayed in this tiny slice of tranquility for two nights and loved every second. The ambiance, the decor, the smiling staff, the tranquil pool, the wood library with complimentary cognac all made our stay incredible. The hotel was built and designed by a father and son duo from Bangkok, and they modeled it in a traditional Chinese fashion intertwined...

We stayed here seven months ago, but we still keep talking about this retreat. Beautiful architecture and peaceful, with incredibly attentive and smiling staff, and one of the best restaurants we found in Thailand. We had busy schedules each day, but as soon as we entered the courtyard we could almost feel the calming effect of this hotel. We were...

The Rachamankha is a wonderful boutique hotel just inside the old city wall. Fed up with the usual 5 star hotels and looking for something different, then this is the answer. The design is traditional and peaceful in the Thai fashion. The rooms are a good size and very comfortable. The food is excellent, good service and served in attractive...

We were only at Rachamankha for two nights and I wish we could have stayed longer. We were in a deluxe room and it was a nice size, with enough room and a very comfortable bed. The whole hotel is gorgeous and immaculate, and very peaceful. It was a very nice oasis to come back to. The breakfast was excellent...

Of our entire Thailand trip, this was probably my favorite of the four hotels we visited. After leaving here, I wanted to go home and immediately redecorate in the same Thai / Chinese antique fashion. I was obsessed with the architecture and décor. Everyone was so friendly and helpful, arranging anything we wanted to do. The hotel is hidden down...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Perfectly located in the center of the old moated city of Chiang Mai, Northern Thailand, Rachamankha is just one minute’s stroll to the old city’s most important and impressive temple, Wat Phra Singh; just 2 minutes stroll to the city’s newest and most exciting night market the Chiang Mai Sunday Walking Street Market, and a wide choice of bars and restaurants from local to international in style all within a few minutes’ walk of Rachamankha. Unique for a city hotel Rachamankha is renowned for its peaceful and very private atmosphere, and it’s incredible architecture. The hotel, just 22 rooms and 2 suites, is set in 2 acres of manicured grounds and the architecture pays homage to Chiang Mai’s golden age, the Lanna period, offering guests a unique stay in a unique property with a true sense of place. Rachamankha is also the only Secret Retreats property in northern Thailand. ... more   less
