          I cannot speak highly enough about this incredible resort”

          My wife and I originally booked 5 days here and ended up staying for nearly two weeks. A lot of travelers come through here just for a day or two as part of a tour group and miss out on the incredible, relaxing area that is Chiang Rai. Even though we only booked a basic room the staff upgraded us to an incredible cabin on a small pond, and were incredibly friendly and welcoming throughout our stay. The swimming pool is amazing. Definitely helpful to rent a motorbike or car as this hotel is a bit far from the city center. I would give six stars if I could, thanks Phowadol!

          Dinner, room, environment

          It was a really joyful stay here withthe family. Not centrally located, but if you have a car its probably one of the best places to stay. Rooms were big, clean and well equipped. Downside were the TV channels, but the patio over the water well made up for that. I can only recommend staying here.

          Breakfast is excellent and service is warm

          At the front desk, we were greeted with a smile. We were promptly checked in and were pleasantly glad with an upgrade from a standard room to a villa. The room is big enough for a family of 2 adults and 2 children. We feel safe for our children to roam around outside as there were always staff around to help keep a look out for them even though we did not request for it. The breakfast is excellent with a good varieties of local and Western food. The chefs came specially to check with us on the quality of food. We feel important and will certainly be back again next year.

          Best Stay at Phowadol Resort & Spa”

          Tuk Tuk ride within premises, staff friendliness and prompt service
          not many amenities as a 5 star hotel (eg. tennis court)

          I was impressed with the friendliness and quality service of the staff. At frontdesk, a cup of cool tea is surely welcoming. Most of them could speak simple English and so communication is not an big issue. Housekeeping staff are accommodating. They even took initiative to provide extra umbrellas when it is raining. The breakfast spread was good too - a mix of local and western food. Chef and waiter/waitress were helpful.

          We had the most fantastic stay here, we only anticipated on staying for one night but we liked the hotel and its beautiful grounds so much we ended up staying a further 3 nights on top. Just didn't want to leave. The beds are soooo comfy, the rooms immaculate, the grounds are so pretty and the service second to none. I would encourage everybody to stay here at least once in your life. Excellent.

          Rooms have cable tv, rooms and sheets were spotless, staff were very friendly and helpful in giving tips on where to go and roads to take (we drove there), breakfast was acceptable.
          Location can be considered to be a bit far from city center..can be hard to get to by those that don't drive.

          Overall I really liked this hotel. The only thing I think they could have done better is the breakfast and dinner buffet at the hotel dining room. There was a wide variety to choose from but nothing that was really good. Its a shame that I didn't have time to try out the spa which I hear is great.

          Three weeks in Thailand and this place was the only disappointing accomodation. 1. Located about 6km from town which would have been fine if there was more reason to stay at the esort. 2. Pool area is a not pleasing, dated, and ot clean. 3. The so called gym is a complete laugh, a couple old decreped macines in the most discusting foul area. The carpet is filthy with massive rips and pieces missing and an unpleasent odor. 4. The room was ok the bed was like sleeping on a cement pad. 5. The staff were ok, not the thai freindly and service level we received everywhere else. 6. The breakfast was dismal, definatly for the bus loads of chinese who arrive each night. Twice we ate in town bedause of this and even the western food they served was poor qaulity and the most horrid coffee....come on we are in Chaing Rai ! 7. Skip this place .

And some staff are rude, Staff in the breakfast also having breakfast at the same time..kinda weird Room-spacious and comfy bed - Toilet ~ if you shower, water is all over the floor.. NO toothbrush include in the hotel amenities. Price - is pretty value for money, IF You want nature, and far from everything. BUT for me ~ For my future visit in Chiang Rai I’ll try to find a better hotel with a friendly staff, value for money and close to the city.

          Great for a quiet geetaway”

          We went for a quiet, restful family holiday, and the resort was perfect. It is out of the hustle and bustle of the main town which was perfect for our holiday, and also since we had our own car, had no problems with the hotel not being close (within walking distance) to anything. The hotel is a little old, but the rooms were very clean and very spacious. We were given an upgrade to the deluxe rooms which was wonderful, where the setting was around the pond/garden. Breakfast was pretty extensive, esp when there were other groups in. On the day the hotel was quiet, we could easily order what we wanted and the staff happy to serve. The facilities - pool and gym were good, clean and adequate for our needs, a little old, but fine. In our rooms the internet was not always strong, so had some problems at times. However, this was not a big issue, since we were not there to be dependent on the internet. TV is old, so if you're wanting to connect your computer to the TV, bring the necessary cables. The hotel does however have a decent range of DVDs you can borrow for free which was nice. Overall, we had a great stay and would definitely consider staying again.

          We enjoyed everything about our stay with one exception: the artwork in the rooms, which we consider inappropriate because it shows nudity and sexual activity. Other than this, it was a nice hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful, the wifi free and strong, and the rooms and surrounding gardens are beautiful. It is also in a very convenient location, removed from town but not too far.

          Clean and good food”

          Deluxe room , food and service

          Everything is ok , but sometimes they focus service to foriener tourists more than thai tourists. The hotel is a little bit far if you do not have own car to travel. I stay at deluxe room is very nice.i will come back again if i have change to travel to cheing rai Food is very good but test is quiet sweet .i also have buffet lunch at hotel , price is cheap and quality.

          Peaceful getaway”

          Quiet, large room, good environment

          The room was great, large, spacious and well equipped. We were beside a large pond, which was very peaceful and quiet. Suggest that you have a car if you stay here though - as it is a little out of the way.

          enjoyable stay”

          enviornment

          It was a really nice resort which gains points for its beautiful garden, cool swimming pool and fantastic northern style spa. We spent our night at the spa and totally enjoyed it. Walking around in the resort is already a beautiful experience itself. It is a bit far from the crowd night market in chiang rai but it is always easy to catch a duk-duk ordered from the front desk. Loved it.
