Boutique hotel. Great location. Peaceful setting. Nice restaurant. Beautiful pool. Competent staff but somewhat reserved. An easy.walk from the hotel to the outdoor food market. Disappointed with the Wi-Fi and lack of electric outlets near the bed. Would definitely stay there again.

What a beautiful hotel. This hotel has really beautiful gardens with lots of little retreat areas tucked away for you to relax with a book or a refreshing drink. Our room was on the ground floor and was spacious and comfortable. It had a very comfortable king sized bed and a roomy bathroom with luxury bath products. All of the...

Spent one night for experience. Very tranquil. Not for family with young kids. Rooms small but nice. Pool one of the most beautiful. Staff very friendly and attentive. Dinner at hotel restaurant very good, but small portions and expensive. Located in middle of town. Not a good value, unless you want to pay extra for serenity.

The hotel itself looks beautiful and nice, but the rooms need maintenance especially the air-conditioner. The room also lack charging plugs to charge your gadgets. The boiling pot, tea and coffee bags and tea cups are located in the bathroom which is extremely odd. I had booked transportation from the hotel before arrival and had even reminded the hotel for...

This is a truly beautiful property. The space, design and interior flow have been put together with the eye of a master designer/collector. Every artefact has been carefully chosen and perfectly positioned. Everywhere there is harmony, serenity and something to delight the eye, such that it is impossible to take a bad photograph of Rachamankha! After the chaotic, steamy bustle...

New to Thailand, we could not have wished for a better hotel. Elegant without being pretentious, staff so friendly and accommodating, food delicious and reasonably priced - breakfast was fabulous. Chiang Mai is so charming and 3 days/nights was not enough, we were sad to leave and hope to return one day.

Arriving at this hotel is so peaceful and Tranquil. Loaded with beautiful antiques and an air of sophistication and luxury not experienced in other parts of Thailand. In the old city this is quintessential old world Asia.

This ranks as one of our family's favorite hotel stays. Rachamankha is a gorgeous, tranquil oasis that's well located in Chiang Mai. The property is large for the middle of town, artfully filled (in a minimalist way) with antiques and good attention to detail. We loved the pool (so welcome when temperatures go above 100°) and the library. It was...

The Rachamankha Hotel is the most beautifully designed hotel at which we have ever stayed - an architecture and design lover’s dream. People are literally taken aback when they drive through the gates and see the front entranceway with a huge fabric panel flapping in the wind. We stayed in a ground floor room with incredibly high ceilings, a huge...

The beautiful antiques and elegant architecture makes this hotel a stand out. Located centrally within the walled city, it is easy walking distance to many Wats. The dining room is lovely. The food was excellent (be sure to have the Burmese Tea Salad). The pool was lovely and the landscaping equally lovely. We had great, friendly service. I would go...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Perfectly located in the center of the old moated city of Chiang Mai, Northern Thailand, Rachamankha is just one minute’s stroll to the old city’s most important and impressive temple, Wat Phra Singh; just 2 minutes stroll to the city’s newest and most exciting night market the Chiang Mai Sunday Walking Street Market, and a wide choice of bars and restaurants from local to international in style all within a few minutes’ walk of Rachamankha. Unique for a city hotel Rachamankha is renowned for its peaceful and very private atmosphere, and it’s incredible architecture. The hotel, just 22 rooms and 2 suites, is set in 2 acres of manicured grounds and the architecture pays homage to Chiang Mai’s golden age, the Lanna period, offering guests a unique stay in a unique property with a true sense of place. Rachamankha is also the only Secret Retreats property in northern Thailand. ... more   less
