Laluna Hotel and Resort
City Center,Chiang Rai - View on map
"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 Riverie by Katathani (SHA Extra Plus)
City Center,Chiang Rai - View on map
"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."

Sann Hotel (SHA Extra Plus)
City Center,Chiang Rai - View on map
"Everyone was very nice and helpful. The location is great (less than 300m to the clocktower), the pool is very nice, the rooms are modern and clean. We’ve got breakfast included and that was also very tasty. Will come back again when we want to stay in Chiang Rai. We were a group of 8 and booked 8 rooms. Brand new hotel!"

Katiliya Mountain Resort & Spa
Mae Chan,Chiang Rai - View on map
"We chose this resort to avoid traffic and crowd in the city center during Songran New Year. We had made a perfect decision. The room is specious and clean. The resort is near every must-visit outside the city of Chiang Rai. It was also our intention to stay in this resort which is situated in the middle between Mae Sai and Chiang Rai. For us, it was very convenient to drive to Doi Tung, Doi Mae Salong, Mae Sai, and ancient city of Chiang Saen. We could not find any faults during our three nights at the resort. We certainly will stay here again next time we visit Chiang Rai."

Pimanninn
City Center,Chiang Rai - View on map
"Stayed at Pimanninn for first time, and was more than satisfied w/ quality of room, especially for having been booked at such budget price. Location is not the best in Chiang Rai, but one may walk to several areas of interest w/in 20 minutes. Staff is very friendly, although severely lacking in English communication skills. Swimming pool is rather large, and Fitness Center is replete w/ high-qualify fitness equipment. If visiting Chiang Rai in future, will definitely consider booking at Pimanninn again."

Doowall Hotel
Mae Lao,Chiang Rai - View on map
"The hotel is new and clean. Staff are helpful and friendly. Originally, we booked a tent at the courtyard, but when we arrived, we found it was not comfortable for us.. Because the room was too small and the tents were too closed to each other. So, we asked to move to the room in the main building. They told us to pay surcharge and that we were fine. Then we found the room in the main building was nicer with a view of the rice field., and it was more comfortable. The room was spacious with all facilities that we needed such as bathroom amenities, hair dryer, TV, coffee machine, etc. And they have separate area of bathtub, shower and toilet. Location wise; the hotel is quite far away from city center (about 30 minutes drive). The road from the main road to hotel is a bit dark and creepy at night , but we were fine with that because we drove our own car. We may stay here again if we visit Chiang Rai in the future. "

Bura Resort
Ban Du,Chiang Rai - View on map
"Our stay was such a delight! The artistry of the landscaping and the cottages was brilliant. Spacious cottages with extravagant wood panelling with inlaid lights. Some have complained there is nothing to do. We enjoyed a good rest, since we had been very busy before the Bura. We also hiked up the road to see a real rural Thai village, and down the road to watch the locals chest deep in the reservoir, fishing. We hiked up a local waterfall a couple of kilometers away. The staff were very helpful, and even drove us a long way into Chiang Rai to visit the local market at not cost. We could have done sightseeing in Chiang Rai, but we were templed out. The restaurant is an informal affair, and the food very good. One night we chose to have a later supper, and as we approached the staff were leaving, figuring that no one else would be coming. When they saw us, they lit up at the opportunity to serve us, and with smiles re-opened the restaurant. The only possible minor thing they could improve is to have more music variety at the restaurant. Because we are English (Canadian), they played the same English music CD every time we were there; it was a nice CD, but we would have been fine with any music. On their side, they were being thoughtful, and we appreciated this. And we would have preferred not hearing the same CD always. "

More about Chiang Rai

As a regional capital, Chiang Rai gives its name to the entire province, and travelers come here for rustic getaways, jungle trekking, and a chance to engage the dozen hill-tribe cultures that have settled here. Legend states that Thailand's famous Emerald Buddha was discovered here, and while its temple remains, the prized artifact has been moved to Bangkok's Wat Phra Kaew.

Visitors typically spend a night or two in the city center, or Amphoe Muang Chiang Rai, before heading out into the backcountry. With the borders of Myanmar and Laos just over the horizon, there is plenty of culture to explore. The three countries meet at the Golden Triangle, a once lawless land that has replaced opium cultivation with the safer and more reliable tourist trade. Attractions here include the Hall of Opium, Burmese-styled temples, and excellent hill-tribe trekking opportunities.

Chiang Rai’s peak season is in December and January, a time that attracts many domestic travelers to enjoy the cooler temperatures the region offers. The city’s best hotels are located along the Kok River or near the centrally located night bazaar, and they provide excellent assistance in arranging the activities you would like to partake in.

Be sure to check out the interactive map of Chiang Rai for information on hotel locations, attractions, and must-see destinations.
