We loved everything about Le Meridian. The bed and room was so comfortable with everything you could think of for a good night's sleep. The pool was sensational and such a great place to unwind with a drink after a morning of sightseeing.The staff were eexceptional. ..nothing was too much trouble. They booked buses for us and even in such a big hotel..always remembered who we were. Location was great; a short tuk tuk or hotel shuttle ride into Chiang Rai. Breakfast buffet was inexpensive and great! For those wanting to eat locally there are a few options within a short walk. All in all a fabulous five star stay!
This is a fabulous place to spend a relaxed night or weekend or week. Everything about it is peaceful and tranquil, and healthy for your mind and body. It's a fabulous place to spend a honeymoon, or just a relaxed peaceful stay with a special friend.
If I had to describe this hotel in one word it would be magical. We arrived very late at night after a long day of traveling and the prearranged driver was there to greet us at the airport. He whisked us to the hotel which is roughly a hour drive from Chiang Rai airport. We were quickly checked in a taken by golf cart to our bungalow. The next morning we awoke to one of the most beautiful landscapes I had ever seen. The hotel is situated in a working rice plantation and the bungalows are right in the middle of it all. This is truly the place for an authentic northern Thailand experience. Francis the hotel manager is very gracious as is his staff. He would greet us every morning at breakfast and was very helpful in arranging excursions to the White Temple, Myanmar, The Hall of Opium, and the Golden Triangle. He also helped us arrange a driver to take us to Chiang Mai. All at a very reasonable price. You will not be disappointed if you choose this hotel. It's a place we will never forget.
This is our 4th stay at the resort - only this time we tried the 1 bedroom pool villa - what as hame, it looked so good upon arrival - but the facilities of the room were a shame
1. all water outlets in our room, shower, bath, basin faucets poured dirty brown water - even after 30 mins continuous pour
2. The villa swimming pool was green, asked to clean, they clearly just scrubbed it, pour a lot of chlorine to mask the smell - and now we had murky green water
3. bamboo bed - snapped
Clearly the resort is in need of maintenance - such a shame for a very nice place...prior
We were offered another room - but i reminded the C.S.M that I specifically chose a pool villa for seclusion, If i wanted to share a pool with the rest of the resort, i would have chosen so at a lesser rate- The CSM offered to take care of us at dinner that night (a pleasant gesture i think for the inconvenience - later to find out it was put on our check out bill - lol )service in the restaurent was too prompt - the minute our entree was finished, no second later our main course arrived and so forth with desert - that was the last dinner we had there - I'll also add that the menu hasn't changed in the 3 years of visiting
But they picked us up at every occasion and we had dinner in our private courtyard on the last night, so that was good - but had to pay for breakfast on the final morning, we had it @ 0930 - we were told 1000 was the last serving
I can only imagined if i paid the resort website fare
For the price and difficulty booking a room at this hotel, I expected more. The staff was nice, the room was adequate, but smelled very musty or moldy, and the arrangement was awkward. The pool was nice and clean and refreshing, the views out over the river are great. The food in the restaurant was good, but not fabulous. It is a bit of a walk in to town, but we did it rather than book a car or tuk-tuk.
The hotel offers spacious accommodations to both international and domestic guests in an atmosphere of total relaxation. All …More
