"This hotel is a great pick in Chiang Rai. The location is very convenient, close to the clock tower, a lot of restaurants and a market. The room was bright (only one small window but good light and all in white) and the bathroom newly renovated. The bed was huge and very comfortable. However, the room was not very spacious but enough for our stay and amount of luggage. We also really enjoyed having a water boiler and coffee/tee, which they refilled daily. We did not have any meals included, so we can't rate the food/dining. The staff speaks english and was very helpful, they helped us out with a map and organised a taxi for us to take us to the bus station. We highly recommend this hotel in Chiang Rai."

"Family room suite has spacious space, worth the price. A 7-foot King size bed is perfect for family who has to sleep with kids. No floor stepping which would be dangerous for toddlers. Check in/out service is fast. Breakfast is good for everyone. A lot of selections, changing everyday. Gyms is also good but close at 8 pm is too early for nowadays's trend. Kids' club has a big ball house which is heaven for every kids (Small toddlers to the early adolescent!) It's free, though! This hotel is probably the only hotel in Chiang Rai which has a good kids' club with ball house. Anyway, hotel should provide attending staff, at least to control kids'play which always has various age groups at the same time. Another toys are mostly broken. Should be replaced and get maintenance. Swimming pool is also awesome for kids. A pool bar is also available. (It may be even a lot better if there is a curly water slide.) In-room amenity is well equipped."

"Newly renovated hotel, still in the process of preparations to get fully run. The room l stay is clean and nice, TV not functioning well due to connecting issue, some time you get the channel and sometimes you don’t. Housekeeping must be more alert when doing makeup room, Best quickly get the makeup’ room sign ready. I not use to the bathroom with glass, even is lightly mate cover. A little disappointed during new year evening, lounge beverage was close way to early before count down. I have to go out and buy some beer to celebrate at my room. Hotel staff are friendly and nice. Beautiful restaurant, breakfast can be improved with live stations for fried eggs and others. Overall, l still have a good time in Chiang-Rai. "

"This hotel has been one of the highlights of my travels around Asia. Set on a quiet road about 15 minutes walk from the centre of Chiang Rai, the fairly ordinary entrance road does not prepare you for what waits at reception and beyond. Once checked in the friendly staff guide you through a tropical paradise of plants and trees to one of the spacious and well equipped bungalows. Make sure to bring mosquito repellent as this is one of the prices you pay for staying in the centre of so much greenery. Reception staff are friendly and helpful although two of my few criticisms of the resort are that a) Their airport transfer is overpriced by about 200 baht (I booked through the tour place across road) and b) some of their tours are also more expensive than walking across road - plus there do not seem a lot of options for the solo traveller. But these are both small, easily remedied criticisms. The attached restaurant bar provides breakfast in the morning and drinks and meals at night; remember to get your daily 10% discount coupon and remember the 3 for 2 happy hours too. The restaurant have both friendly staff and some amazing food. Try the Kao Soi Gai - a new dish for me and now one of my all time Thai favourites! The breakfast buffet was perhaps the best I have experienced with a wide range of Thai and Western choices. Also easy to get a tuk tuk up to the night market (should be about 50 baht each way) All in all, the LaLuna is a gem in Chiang Rai and is most definitely on the 'must return' list!"

"The hotel is located in resort environment, I firstly surprised to see the ambient atmosphere with super staff service when I checked in. Chiang Rai is a very nice province upnorth of Thailand, it's fully filled with Thai cultural and natural experiences. Before I booked this hotel, I have gone thru the comments, most of them looked positive to me. I didn't disappoint myself to stay in this hotel. Breakfast was good, staff was nice, room was clean with perfect amenities, lots of car park space, free night ride to night market, beautiful flowers/trees all along the walkway, etc. Unfortunately, swimming pool was a bit off. Gym wasn't open in the morning. A bit far from downtown, therefore, those who have no car may find it a bit difficult, however, hotel has a service ride at reasonable price to anywhere in town."

"It is Le Meridien, so of course I am picky. First of all it is quite surprising to find such a huge mega resort in a place like Chiang Rai. First day was extremely quiet, almost no clients in the hotel, it gives the experience an uttermost feeling of luxury. The following day at least 60 Spanish people in coach bus and 30 Chinese people raided the hotel... it was different =_= It is only for people who love this kind of huge luxury building, and already know Le Meridien's style. They made proper efforts to use as mush teak as possible and have the Thai feeling in the architecture. Service is really good, and "Net" was really helpful, thanks to her! If you are in Bangkok, it is only 1:20 flight to chiang rai and then a 10 minutes ride to the hotel, worth it to go away from the craziness and pollution of the capital. +++ Positive +++ + Amazing setting, the view on the river or the massive trees lighten with lanterns in between the buildings... the camp fire in the evening... we even saw a meteorite crashing few kilometers from us, it is hard to top that. + Spacious and clean rooms + Super comfy beds (zzzZZZ) + Big balcony + Excellent service (special mention to the woman called "Net" at the front desk!) + Food in general in the three restaurants is really good + For 400THB the breakfast buffet is good, but I would say 300THB would be a fairer price + 24/7 gym + Great WiFi + Hotel shuttle to airport (200THB) - the guy is from Fast & Furious though + Almost everyone in the team speaks a really correct to excellent English --- Negative --- - For this price and expectations, rooms should have a double door sas system. We really hear too much the people walking by or the room service ringing and talking to the guests next to us. So long privacy... - Shower is good, and water temperature is stable but having a plastic bathtub in this kind of hotel makes everything look super cheap all of a sudden. - TV is way too small, or the room too big I don't know, either way it i"

"Amarin Resort is one of my favorite places to stay in Chiang Rai because it's quiet, relaxing, and the room is always extremely clean and organized. There's not much to do at the resort - there's no view or anything - but it's a nice place to stay. The location is not right in Chiang Rai center, but across the highway, which for me was a benefit."
