I have never had such an welcoming and comfortable hotel stay. Every component of our stay was focused on our comfort and experience. We checked in on New Years Eve, and there was an amazing special meal for the occasion, followed by a local (in the hotel) show of fireworks and Thai dance, followed by a champagne toast of the New Year at Chiang Mai's Royal Gardens (2558 pieces, based on the year).
And when that wasn't going on, we sat by the Koi pond, the most peaceful spot I have ever seen. I have never had such a wonderful stay anywhere.
Credit goes to their amazing manager, Gino, and their outstanding Chef, Scott Waxman, and to the place itself.
A beautiful antique style Thai building, with lavish rooms and elegant courtyards, made entirely of wood, with a wonderful and very special feel. The spacious suites are fantastic value. Only downside is the slightly nondescript surroundings, not within walking distance of the centre of Chiang Mai - but this is an easy tuk-tuk/baht-bus/taxi ride of about ten minutes. The price of the hotel is very reasonable even when you factor in the 300 baht a day for return transport, and when you get back to the hotel after a hot day's touristing, it's like coming back to a peaceful oasis.
Little bit away from the centre (10 mins approx). Hotel provides shuttle bus in and doesn't cost much in / out in a tuk tuk / taxi. Pool facilities a treat. Staff very friendly and obliging. Highly recommend it.
Nim the manager was increcibly friendly and accomodating. We LOVED HER! We had a very comfortable stay at WE Valley, and the breakfast was good. The only minor negative is it's a short cab ride away from the Old City, but they provided a one way shuttle to town.
