The temperature in April was so hot over 40c.
I was avoid of going out to town markets so I'd stayed in resort , at least there was cooling me with air-con. Overall that resort was excellent and have board view. I think this is the best in Chiang Mai. But the cost so high.... I hope could be lower.

We stayed at the Oriental Siam Resort in May 2016 and loved it. This is my favorite place to stay in all of Asia! I can barely describe the level of detailed personal touches, including this is a family run business, built on the land where the adult siblings (owners) grew up. Everything is done with the loving care you would expect from a business that supports an extended family. The grounds are so lush, the buildings created and crafted with care (I loved seeing the construction progress pictures), and the small number of villas (I think 11 total) make this the perfect getaway. If you like big hotel chains...this is not the place! The Oriental Siam Resort, from the fresh fruit juice drinks with which you're greeted upon arrival, to the morning (real!!) breakfast, to the help arranging fun things to do in the area is everything a big hotel chain isn't...and it's wonderful!
We hired their car & driver for most of our days there and found it really reasonable and enjoyed our driver so well that we invited him to join us on most of our excursions he took us to!
We had a two bedroom, two bath villa that fit our family of four just right.

I stayed in Rawisara Villa Resort for 6 nights. It is a small resort with 13 Villa / Rooms in total. However it is a very quiet and comfortable place to stay in Chiang Mai. We stayed in Grand Villa Suite with 2 bed rooms & 2 washrooms. The living room is large with an open kitchen. The room is very clean and the bed is comfortable, the bed sheets and blankets look all brand new. Staff are friendly and offer help if you request. The only complaint from my son is that the swimming pool is a bit small (but can't expect it is a large one as it only has 13 rooms there). The location is a bit far from down town (take 20 minutes by car to the town) but there is a large shopping mall nearby so you can get your meals & necessities there. Breakfast is okay, and you can request the hotel staff to arrange private car pick up for you. The fare is generally a bit cheaper than taxi. If you get a taxi driver who doesn't know the way to send you back to the resort, ask him to call the resort, it will be much easier for him to find the way. Overall speaking we don't have much problem to go back to the resort even though its location is a bit remote. You need to pay around THB250 ~ 300 per trip from the down town to the resort.
If you want to stay in a quiet resort with comfortable condition, it is quiet a good choice, we booked via Expedia and the rate was good for such a big room.
- the Coco deluxe room is worth the extra price for its space and the bathtub
- you can choosing between the 2 swimming pools based on the crowd
- you can rent a scooter right outside the hotel, without a deposit (no need to hand over your passport either!)
- the (complementary) breakfast buffet is extensive and filling, though a tad repetitive
The only negative I can remember is that the wifi barely worked in our room
Since this hotel is located about 4 km away from the Old City, I would rather stay closer to the Old City if I visit Chiang Mai again.
