The ultimate travel destination”
This has been our second time staying at the Dhara Dhevi and it certainly will not be the last time. The beautiful villas are nestled within absolutely stunning landscape. Waking up in the morning looking at the lush rice fields and tropical gardens is so peaceful. The breakfast is sumptuous and delicious, every day there is something new to discover because of the incredible variety. The facilities are stunning with a Spa which exceeds all expectations and the restaurants are fantastic. Whether you eat at the traditional Thai restaurant with daily changing traditional Thai dances or at the Italian restaurant which serves authentic and more than delicious dishes or the mouth watering food at the Chinese restaurant or the daily backed macaroons at the cafe, everything tastes amazing. The pools are beautiful and the Gym is well equipped and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The staff is fantastic and so friendly. We stayed more than two weeks this time and can’t wait to visit again
It's a palace, not a resort”
The entire layout and design is just as what you're seeing on the photo. However if it's as a resort, the facility and activity is too limited. I don't recommend it to young couple or group. Btw, the bedroom is on the 2nd floor, thus if you're not convenient to walk or climb, it may be a problem for you. The breakfast is a bit over rated, it's only 4-star level.
A dying legend”
We stayed for two nights in the resort. There is a shop VILA CINI in the resort shopping village. We visted it in the afternoon on 28th Feb, 2019. The employee, her name is Gai, was very rude and gave us attitude simply because we asked the question "Do you have a large size Tshirt?" twice. When I asked why she so angry with us, she answer "Because I am tired, and you ask the same question! I just told you we dont have!" Actually we just want to make sure if the shop have some in stock. We were really shocked and told her we would like to talk to the manager about this issue, and she say "Go! Go ahead! I'm here! My name is Gai, G-A-I!" So we went to the front desk telling the concierge, the reception and there even a manager came us making apologies, and promised us they will investigate this issue and let us know. After two days when we checked out, we don’t have any response until I told them again. There was another apologize and another promise, but still no answer by now.
Out of this world serenity”
Absolutely stunning resort style property, luxurious and generously sized villas, fantastic service, more than delicious breakfast, wonderful spa, gorgeous pools, beautiful and serene setting and so much more. We absolutely loved it and didn’t want to leave.
Expensive Hotel but relaxing with style”
This is the hotel that i look forward to in our stays in Chiang Mai. We tried overnight stay just to experience what Dhara Dhevi can offer. We tried airport pick up via Mercedez. Welcome drink was offered and the hotel staff expalined well the details of our stays including activity for today and tomorrow that we might be interested to join. I liked our bed, pillows and comforter - so soft. I liked the bath tubs with jaccuzzi and colorful lights inside our bathroom. We tried their Italian restaurant for pizza cooked in a unique revolving oven and we ordered pesto pasta. We tried their Thai restaurant and we liked the way the steam fish was prepared and its serving hot plate. For our dessert, we tried their French restaurant - Parang Ses for chocolate souffle and mango crepes prepared in front of you with matching fire in the finale. Breakfast buffet was fantastic. Great choices and healthy food were prepared. Overall stay was EXCELLENT - i liked it very much. No need to go out of the resort - for food that is delectably prepared by their expert chef.
Fantastic Resort for kids”
My daughter and I had an awesome vacation at Dhara Devi. The resort is rich in architecture and leaves you with a lasting impression. Buggy services are fast and convenient. The Thai restaurant was a disappointment. They serve Thai iced milk tea as one would serve english style tea and the food was very westernized catering to the international guests. But the restaurant staff had requested us to come for dinner as they have a nice Thai dance performance. We couldn't attend that one as my daughter goes to bed at 8 pm ( the dance timing). In room dining was fantastic as well. Loved the special flavored macaroons and eclairs at Dhara Devi Cake shop. The staff are kind and very helpful. Kids will love the little passport challenge where they explore for the little challenges and earn themselves a free ice-cream treat on completion. The breakfast buffet was lavish almost a feast with a wide range - american, chinese, dimsum, japanese, Mediterranean, lovely cheese and hams. Yum! They had one of the most wonderful corner with fresh fruit juice, smoothies and fresh fruit. In short, Dhara Devi was my right choice. Go for it. I would definitely go there again.
A truly incredible Hotel Experience.”
It was absolutely incredible. I love the hotel. My only worry is that since the Mandarin left, the property is focusing too much on returns and will loose the brand's integrity by increasing the amount of rooms, not taking care of the buildings and reducing the staff to guest ratio.
Good hardware but lack maintenence”
We got upgraded to a grand deluxe villa (V6) and the mini-bar items are all free. This is nice. We absolutely love the environment of the hotel, the buildings are so beautiful, there are a lot of green in the open space, there is even rice fields in the hotel with real farmers and buffalo. There are little ponies on the meadow in front of the colonial suites as well. Riding a bicycle around is very enjoyable. Most staff members are very friendly and nice, will greet you or smile to you when meet you on the road. The swimming pool will offer cold water and fruit upon guest arrival. You can call for buggies around the hotel if you don't like to walk. Butler service is helpful. etc. Regarding the in-room facility...Very nice but might lack maintenance. We love the following: 1. Room is so spacious, with drinking water everywhere and free mini-bar items 2. Big balcony offer fantastic view of the rice fields 3. Most in-room facility looks very fancy and artistical 4. Bed and pillow are very comfortable 5. There is even a piano in the room We also had the following problems: 1. Downstairs TV can be turned on but the remote is not working, so cannot change channel. 2. Upstairs TV cannot be turned on at all. I know how to turn on the downstair one so I should be able to turn this on. 3. Steam room, shower will not give out hot water. (the upstair one is okay though) 4. Water come out of Jacuzzi is not hot enough for a soak inside. 5. The plastic screws inside the Jacuzzi might not be securely installed so the screw head will easily scrub user's back skin. So the conclusion will be, it's still one of the best hotels in Chiang Mai, but the facility lacks maintenance. All in room facilities should be tested before letting a guest come inside considering the price the hotel is charging.
One of the best hotel in Thailand”
I have to say that this hotel is amazing with all the design and all the ideas behind it. It really take you to another space of time like going back to the old time of Thailand. The room was excellent with big space and has everything that needed. The hotel staff were top class with great service mind. The food was so great, especially the Sunday buffet brunch. Also has good kids club for those who travelling with children.
Aging, but perfect for a quiet, secluded getaway.”
Ran into some minor issue like door lock and a Jacuzzi part that fell off probably because the hotel is over 8 years old and starting to show its age (but staff were quick and courteous in fixing anything that went wrong). There were also some ants at the sink, so some spraying might be needed. But other than those minor issues, this place was very impressive. The hotel's amazing architecture and ambience put this place is truly in a class of its own compared to other hotel in Chiang Mai. The villa was very spacious and well-appointed. It's an ideal place to just getaway in luxury and style for a few days if you have the time.
Perfect in all respects”
This is the best resort I have ever stayed. It is much much better than my expectations. Resort grounds, lobby, suite (got upgraded), swimming pool, restaurants, and above all, staff. I could have early check-in as early as 9am and late check-out as late as 4pm. Impeccable services. Could not fault anything. Will definitely return.
Lanna style decoration with friendly staffs”
I saw many reviews/photos from blog. I decide to book just the standard room - Colonial Suite. The room is bigger than what I expected especially the bathroom. The bathtub is very big. There is quite big rice field inside the hotel. Customer can borrow the bicycle and bike around.
A true Lanna experience in this resort”
This is one of the best hotels/resorts among many that we have stayed. We truly like the architecture of this resort (a combination of Burma and Lanna), the huge space that made you feel that you're in a wonder land and you do not need to be out of the resort. We also adore the professionalism of this resort. Everyone here is so polite and offer their assistance whenever you need. We stayed 3 days here but it was not enough, our children love their kids' club, like the chance to get themselves dirty during the rice plantation, had fun during the treasure hunt with the baby elephant and many other activities they had put together. Best of all, Santa visited them (surprise!!!) right before they went to bed...
I like it ❤️”
Very nice hotel, nice staff, nice view, every things is perfect except availability of some lizards but if you close the door well no problem Thanks Dhara Dhevi ❤️
One of the most beautiful and unique hotels”
Good: view, facilities, breakfast, piano in houses (depending on room type), unique experience in traditional Thai house, can book horse riding for photos or just enjoying the view in the resort Bad: compulsory to add another bed despite we are family visitors, noise in night (suspect either termite or mouse...)
Sooooo beautiful and peaceful ”
Stunning property. The Villa was very spacious with a huge balcony and backyard. We had a plunge pool (Jacuzzi) with an amazing view. Staff were extremely friendly. They take you around the hotel in a golf cart at your request. Restaurants at the hotel were impressive (we tried the Thai restaurant and the cake shop). I wish we could stay longer. There was a lot to do at the hotel we didn't even leave the whole time. I would love to stay at Dhara Dhevi again!
Good and clean
A Wondrous Place”
This hotel is amazing, the facilities and architecture are simply breathtaking. The kids had a great experience planting rice, and the adults had a great experience at the spa. A trip to remember.
The resort is heritage style that looks like an old temple with olden day architecture. It certainly is amazing. Listed as one of AMEX's Fine Hotels and Resorts which is why I booked it and the price was lower going through Agoda. The staff is very friendly, typical of a 5 Star Resort. We had to pay extra for a roll away since we had a 4th person in the family (price was $110 USD which included the buffet. ) Buffet was very nice although I wish they had more international selection such as Indian food or other ethnic food versus Thai/Chinese/US. Location is decent. About 15mins by taxi or Grab Ride Share to Night Market, which is where we spent a lot of time. 45minutes from various attractions such as Elephant Sanctuary, Doi Suthep Temple among other places. We didn't try the food at resort restaurants as they were over priced, or priced according to 5 Star resort prices. I would recommend staying closer to the Night Market area to be close to the action is.
Beautifully kept, vast grounds, lovely villas. We stayed 4 nights in a villa, a fifth night in a room. Chinese tourists loud with screaming unruly children, but hotel fabulous. Breakfast buffet pleasant and food excellent quality. Staff professional and attentive. Pools clean, although at pool, again Chinese tourists several times had screaming loud families and kids which made us retreat to our balcony room, then inside our room cause they were so loud.
