After the hectic experiences in big cities like Bangkok, staying here is perfectly relaxing. Great, cabin-like rooms with so-so working wifi. Interior is nice and facilities in great shape. The pool is big and quiet and the overall resort is well maintained. We also had a buffet style dinner which was a bit disappointing as there wasn't so much choice... More

Comfortable rooms, descent wifi, so so restaurant for dinner. Resort is ok, but the location isn't. Hotel offers shuttle service (not free) to Chiang Rai centre. Breakfast is basic, but ok. Good thing about the location is that it's quiet.

Phowadol Resort and Spa covers a decent amount of space with a high-rise building, several 2-story abodes and multiple cottages, some set in their own "village" area. we arrived at night and lighting is minimal. fortunately i always bring some small but powerful LED flashlights. The cottage is easy to look into so it is a must to draw the... More

Stayed for 2 nights while on tour of Thailand. Our group was upgraded to individual cottages. They were very comfortable and roomy. Beds were very good as well. Their buffet breakfast was very good and offered a wide selection of food. Would recommend this place.

Some kind of business meeting was using up most of the main building, so my husband and I got upgraded to a cottage at the last minute. The room we were given was spacious, with very attractive Asian décor including a desk, armoire, carved wooden couch, and an almost life-size erotic painting adorning the sliders between the bedroom and bath....

We stayed in a charming little bungalow for two nights. It was very comfortable. The other people in our group had problems adjusting the A/C (they were freezing), but ours worked fine. The resort was not close to anything, but that did not matter to us. The breakfast, however, was not so good. It was not stocked well and the... More

We didn't use the pool, but the rest of the hotel was very lovely. The breakfast buffet was excellent. Lunch - pad thai - was great! We really enjoyed staying two nights here. This was a great location to go out to other places. Very restful here.

When I first arrived at the hotel, I could see that it used to be a nice resort with lots of trees and nice Northern Thai-styled buildings. The staff was welcoming and friendly. They upgraded my family to a villa with the reason that the standard room was overbooked. That sounded like a good news but when we reached our... More

The hotel grounds is showing its age and plants are not well landscaped. Rooms are basic and toilettaries are lacking (note:chargeable if you remove the little shampoo bottles).

We stayed in a standard room which was outdated, making me feel a bit ripped off for the price we paid. The room wasn't that clean and if you don't have a car, this is away from town. The breakfast selection wasn't that great given that Thai hotels usually offer larger variety and better quality for breakfast.

“if you like privacy and quietness, go for the cottages. Standard rooms in the main block appears well patronised and noisy”

“Depends on what you're after. Regular rooms are located in a hotel setting. Cottages are situated around a pond with a tinkle of a waterfall. Higher floors always offer more privacy. Not much height here. Hallways are well worn and not a reflection of the rooms.”
