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.

We really loved this place. They score high in all areas with exceptional services, food and services, however the location is not great. We like to wander and we couldn't find any decent place to sit and have a meal and a beer because most restaurants don't serve alcohol.
Love the stay! ”
The property located a bit far off the city; so less accessible to the market or main tourist site. But thar’s what makes our stay less hustling and so chilled every time we step in the hotel. It’s new, well maintenance, staff is super helpful. Everything is great, except that the breakfast is not that remarkable given the pricing we pay. Still, I love it overal and will definitely come back :)
Excellent resort ”
Excellent resort to stay, entire team at resort are very very helpful, front desk, restaurant, room service, household, excellent service, food choices are good, Small request, fitness/gym needs to upgrade with larger work out space.
the used of space is quite good throughout the entire hotel, facilities have been maintained well, the staff are experienced and multi-lingual. Hotel restaurant can be expensive depending on what you order. Rooms are well kept, clean and cool. I recommend this place to anyone looking for some quiet company beside the beautiful river.
Great peaceful hotel, excellent service. I will stay again.”
The hotel located out of old city. but, don't need to worry because it have free shuttle bus (1times/1day,one-way) to night-market, also free rental bicycle. Hotel-staff and secility-staff is very kindry, and professional.
Beautiful boutique hotel”
Lovely position on the river and an exceptionally nice room and super friendly and helpful staff
Great riverside boutique resort ”
Almost prefect; boutique resort, great service, good facilties, located on the river, good price but away from the town. F&B quite expensive, if you can consider a better deal to attract guest in-house would be great!
A Beautiful Oasis.......โรงแรมที่สวยงาม”
I love this hotel. In the low season it's great, you can't do any better for the price. The hotel is beautiful, and airy. The rooms are very comfortable, clean and well organized. I stayed on the main floor, my room with its little courtyard framed by a beautiful manicured hedge was the place where my friends all hung out in the evenings. The staff is attentive and very helpful. The wonderful breakfast on the grounds by the river is a great view in the morning. The location is good it's only a short tuk tuk ride from all the nightlife and far enough that the evenings are quiet. My only complaint was the shower, adjusting the water for a warm shower was tricky because the water heater is a standalone small unit. By the 3th shower i figured it out. The pool is in a corner, it's ok. I don't like pools so i didn't pay it too much attention. Oh the mattress was firm which was comfortable and fine for me. I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. I would highly recommend it to everyone.
If you want tranquility and a relaxing holiday, this will be a very good choice. ”
No tour groups but only couples. Very nice staff though their English is not too good. Facilities are enough for room guests (no crowds at restaurant, bar, gym, pool & spa). Need to mention the very good massage and reasonable price. One night we had dinner by the river and there were no other guests. Free corkage! One drawback is that if you want shopping or busy night life ,you will have to take a taxi or Uber. Anyway, It's only 5-10 minutes to any busy area you want.
Clean, comfortable, relaxing hotel ”
Loved the hotel. Great service. Next to the river with outdoor seating for breakfast. Decent breakfast selection. Hotel is clean and spacious. Location is a bit far from the action but there's a 7pm free shuttle service to town everyday. Swimming pool is in a shared area, didn't really use. Definitely recommend this place.
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.
A suburban stay”
The hotel enjoys a quiet neighbour and close proximity from the night market. Along the way, there are some restaurants. The rooms are distant from the street and no traffic noise could be heard. The cafe sits next to the river and one can enjoy the beautiful view of the river. The room is in modern design and is worth of money. Air-con is perfect and the bed is huge. Absolutely no complain.
A nice oasis”
A lovely serene setting, especially at breakfast where you dine by the riverside. service was very good, the room was spacious and relatively clean, if a tad gloomy due to the mood lighting. The mattress was a bit stiff and could do with a protector, whereas the pillows were a bit too hard. the hotel is located away from shops or other facilities (no massage, convenience store, etc within walking distance)
Perfect room, environment and services”
1. Beautiful guest room interior design. Feeling comfort and spacious 2. Very clean guest room 3. Perfect staff service (quick response to email query, helpful, good follow up) 4. Wonderful spa (very clean, feeling private, good control of number of customer, reasonable price, good staff service)
valuable with big room and natural surrounding ”
I totally love everything in this hotel ,staffs were very helpful , located is good , hotel is natural surrounding with modern Lanna culture. Guest room is very big & Fabulous Bed and Classy bathroom , they separate toilet and bathroom which so nice..
Nice Boutique Hotel”
We stayed there for 3 days, it is a very nice boutique hotel, friendly staffs, clean & bright room. There is free shuttle bus service to night market every night. There is nothing much around that areas and it is far away from main areas. But if you are looking for quiet place, this is your choice.
We liked the hotel. The room was really nice although we felt a little trapped in because the windows were sealed shut. Their were word panels blocking all light from entering and you couldn't look out. This is probably because the area where the hotel is, is not very nice. But once you were in the hotel you could forget all of that and just enjoy the quiet grounds. The call to worship from the mosque across the street was audible several times a day but not too disturbing.
Cozy hotel with excellent service”
I stayed in a deluxe room for 5 days. I like that the room is like a house with our own "front yard". The room is modern in design. Its also very clever to use the pandan leaves as decor as they can ward off cockroaches :) However, I have an issue with the toilet being open-concept. I wished there could have been an opaque curtain to draw over the glass instead of just the see-thru one. I was staying with an acquaintance so it can be kinda awkward. Location is not the best but it is close enough to the night bazaar.
Excellent service, clean rooms with chic design”
The room was perfectly designed. I stayed at the ground floor, the day bed outside the room in our yard was perfect for relaxation during the day time. This compensates for the small pool area. The hotel compound was serene, clean surrounded by smiling staff who were ever ready to render services. Water pressure for shower was strong with rain shower. Basically, we loved everything about the hotel from the design of the room to staff service. Restaurant food was OK only though and is quite expensive for Chiang Mai standard. The hotel offer free shuttle to the night market, so eating at the market would be a better option. As for lunch, walk out around 300m to the right and you can find small local stalls with local rice and dishes. If you don't mind the small stall, that would be good for lunch or packing the lunch back to the hotel could also be an option. This hotel is recommended if you are not looking at staying in the old city. Enjoy your stay! :)
Lovely and classy decor, with the most adorable details -- hanging plant lamps! And the glistening black tile in the pool... makes swimming in a smallish space quite an royal experience. Very nice and attentive staff. The welcome fruit, complimentary bikes and shuttle service are great additions. I felt taken care of. Really enjoyed it.
