About this property


Set over the Mae Ping River, this 28-roomed boutique hotel offers the perfect escape into natural beauty and chic design. Situated in Chiang Mai’s old town, guests are in close proximity to the famous night bazaar and just 5 km from the airport. Each room's décor is inspired by the four elements of early Buddhism, honed by a combination of colonial and traditional Thai architecture. At The Tara restaurant, visitors can enlighten their taste buds with both Western and Thai cuisine complimented by an extensive drinks list. After an exhausting day exploring Chiang Mai, be sure to soak up some of the sensory pleasures at Four Elements Spa or perhaps indulge in some yoga and meditation. If you’re looking for a special and unique experience, look no further than Aruntara Riverside Boutique Hotel.

wonderful experience
We like to stay in the riverside hotel and the environment is very decent. The staff are very friendly including both securities outside the hotel who can help you to ask red bus or tuk tuk price and give u suggestion. We also like style and deco of the room and garden. Highly recommend it.

Great stay but breakfast was disappointing
Excellent stay with this boutique hotel. We loved the serene surroundings and cosiness of the place. Except the breakfast can be improved. There should be more offerings of local Thai food.

hotel is good &relax, the breakfast is very poor.
Very few options for breakfast, we have 2 younger kids with us and hotel insist we had to pay extra 250 THB per kid for breakfast even if we did not want to have breakfast.... We stay 2 days and pay 1,000 THB for kids breakfast, and I have to say it is not most poor breakfast I ever have. Other is good, just not happy with the breakfast.
