“Pleasant Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 January 2012

For our first trip to Chiang Mai, I tried Booking.com apps for the first time on my iPad. I came across Rarinjinda which has one of the best rating. After reviewing the location and photos I didn't wait any further. We stayed there for 6 days and 5 nights!

This is our first time staying at a Boutique hotel. The ambience was much better than any other 5 star resorts we have stayed before such as Westin Langkawi and Shangri-La Penang. We were very impressed with the treatment and hospitality received upon arrival at the hotel as the staff were friendly and helpful. We did not get a chance to try the spa treatments except for the complimentary foot spa which was a relief. We really would love to indulge ourselves again there next time. One thing for improvement is the mattress as we would prefer a softer or springy one. Tq Rarinjinda for the pleasant experience.

My daughter and I stayed at RarinJinda for five nights just last week and loved every minute of it. The room was bright, clean, airy and modern. The location was great, quiet for sleeping but close to everything - all that essential night shopping to be done! Because it was our first trip to Chiang Mai we were busy sightseeing but we made sure we spent two days at the resort - sitting beside the pool reading and/or using the spa facilities - we had a Golden Memories five hour treatment which included a foot scrub, hydrotherapy pool treatment, sauna, body scrub, massage and facial. All this cost [my daughter has the account] between $130-150AU each. The staff in all areas of the resort were very attentive, always ready to help and with a cold iced drink. We also took advantage of the Funny Day Tour and Travel facilities which are based on site. Price was great for the tours and staff helpful. We loved Deck 1 [across the road] but the policemen on duty at the hotel always stopped the traffic for us, whether it was to go to the restaurant or coming home from night shopping. The soft shell deep fried crabs were just delicious, along with a Long Island Iced Tea sitting on the deck overlooking the Mae Ping - what else could you ask for? There is a 7-11 just two house blocks away, with a coffee shop, etc. close by too. Deck 1 served a good solid breakfast every day with lots of food options. We went to a cooking school for the day nearby and enjoyed eating out at the Night Bazaar if we were not eating those lovely little crabs and not drunk too many Long Island Iced Teas. Riverside Bar and restaurant was across the road and the tuk tuk drivers all know where it is - costs 80 baht from the Night market to get home. Definitely recommend and would return both to RarinJinda and Chiang Mai.

Room Tip: Riverside bar and restaurant is across the road, a little noisy but sounds great so a room towards t...

We had the pleasure of staying 4D3N at RarinJinda. The moment we entered the hotel, we knew we had made the right decision. The hotel is elegantly designed and rooms are quite impressive. We were upgraded to a direct pool access room because of availability issues -- such a wonderful experience to open our doors and jump to the pool. While there are so many positive aspects to comment upon, the staff deserves the highest praise. They went out of our way to attend to our every needs. We travel a lot and for better or worse expect the best quality wherever we go. The staff at RarinJinda provided us this and more. Thank you so much. We can't wait to come back to Chiang Mai and won't hesitate to stay here again.

We have just returned from Chiang Mai and were very impressed with Rarinjindah. The staff were lovely and so attentive. Whenever we sat down to use the internet or enquire about something , a beautiful icy cold drink was served to us within minutes. The rooms were clean and cool and the landscape of the resort was absolutely beautiful with its waterfalls, ponds and greenery. We were in a quieter area of Chiang Mai, which was still very close to the bridge over the Ping river, which extended right through to the gates of the old, walled city. There were markets and night bazaars abuzz with food, handi-crafts and your imitation ralph laurens etc. You could walk to these attractions, but taxis and tuk tuks are easily accessible from the resort. Nearby there is Waa Wee Coffee (Like Starbucks or Gloria Jeans), Riverside restaaurant, Good View restaurant and The Deck 1 (which is where you will have inclusive breakfast). They are all situated on the Ping River. Any tours can be organised from hotel advisors. The Spa massages are the best I have ever had. Try the hot sand massage with Tibetan sound-waves, but the best fthe ultimate was the foot massage (It was incredible!). Free Yoga at 8am was a fine work-out, too. The down-side was, we didn't spend enough time just lying around the pool or using the gym. I wish we had more time there. Don't think twice about staying at this property. I'd like to return there some day.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms have direct access to the pool, so would be nice as long as you can all swim. We...

This is a very stylish, elegant and extremely well run boutique hotel in Chiang Mai very close to the Ping river. Value for money (January is low season) excellent for us falang ! Very relaxing room decor in modern Thai style as well as tasteful use of water and plant life in the open area around the pool.

Did not make use of the Spa except the free yoga sessions with a very good teacher.


Some small criticisms - free Wi-Fi internet was slow despite trying several access points.

- Gym area although small could be improved with a PowerPlate
machine and the free weights (dumbells) were too light for the
majority of men.

- Restaurant is a separate business across the road from the hotel,
with riverside tables. Breakfast was of good quality and varied
enough, just requiring a little more explanation to go with the form !
