The minute you walk into this boutique hotel, you can feel the peacefulness of the interior. No disturbances from the outside surrounding once your are in the courtyard of the hotel. Very nice and peaceful little restaurant with a great garden to have your breakfast, lunch or high tea. Great natural surroundings, plenty of plants, water features including the Mae...

This boutique hotel is an oasis in the midst of the city... step through the front door, and the city melted away. Walk through the courtyard and there is a peaceful restaurant and lounging area on the river, birds chirping. The rooms were comfortable. Bathroom great. The bed was a bit hard, and I like a firm mattress, but upon...

After leaving the hustle and bustle of the city, Aruntara was the perfect surprise. From the moment we arrived to the minute we left we couldn't have asked for more. The staffs are really nice and helpful and always with smile. If you want to hire a taxi for travelling around, they would choose one driver who can speak good...

It is very obvious that Aruntara is taking their ratings on Tripadvisor seriously, a certificate of excellence proudly sits on a lobby's shelf, and the staff appears self-conscious of the venue's reputation. I have booked myself and a friend for three nights in a room after reading about the public's praises on Tripadvisor, eager to experience the comfort and luxury...

It was my first time at Aruntara Hotel. After I had read many both of positive and negative reviews about this hotel, then I had decided to book a Deluxe room because we thought this hotel is the best for us.  It is true, because we had a nice and wonderful time here. This boutique hotel is a surprise to...

We really enjoyed our stay. Really nice rooms especially for the price. Staff were reeeally friendly. You have to get a tuk tuk to go any wher but that is only about £1.50!! Great holiday! We also went to the spa which, although expensive, was great!! Hard mattresses and a noisy air con took some getting used to, but other...

Perhaps there are bigger and better-located options in Chiang Mai. Perhaps there are also much cheaper options, but…I would not change with any of the other option Aruntara in Chiang Mai. Everything of this stay was absolutely perfect, since the arrival. The room was stunning, the hotel is small but extremely charming, same as the SPA – small but functional....

What a professionally-run outfit! I stayed in a deluxe room: all clean, fast wifi and stocked with everything one would expect of a five-star hotel. The staffs are very polite and professional, the setting is beautiful and the ambiance is perfect. The hotel is a little out of the way but the reward is peace and absolute quiet against the...
