Tamarind Village Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai, Thailand

The hotel

Like an old friend that’s asked you to stay, Tamarind Village welcomes you in and immerses you in the real Chiang Mai experience. Its guestrooms gaze over courtyard gardens (one featuring a 200 year old tamarind tree), and are dressed in authentic hill tribe fabrics, set against a cool modern backdrop to create a mix of tradition and tranquillity. This boutique hotel adds more local flavours in its poolside café, spa, local product-stocked boutique, and daily walking tours and cultural pastimes, which range from umbrella painting to flower garland weaving. Step outside and you’ll find ancient landmarks, gorgeous shopping streets, and traditional dining spots within easy reach.

After a short transfer from the airport we arrived at the Tamarind Village, an oasis of tranquillity within the old city. We received a warm welcome and whilst it was only mid-morning our room was ready for our two night stay. We had a Lanna Deluxe with all the expected amenities; it very comfortable with a balcony overlooking a peaceful courtyard with The Tamarind Tree, totally serene. This is a wonderful boutique hotel; ideal to explore the old city and surrounds or chill around the pool. Staff were delightfully friendly and attentive. Whilst there are plenty of restaurants around we ended up eating in the Ruen Tamarind for lunch and dinners with excellent food, service and poolside location. Not forgetting the banana crisps with drinks. Unfortunately we did not get time to take advantage of the afternoon craft classes or city guided walk. Our only regret was we had to leave. Read less

Excellent location in the centre of town with temples, street food etc all on the door step. Room was small but OK and the hotel has a relaxing ambiance despite the hustle and bustle just outside the door. Breakfast was OK but we preferred to eat out for all other meals as the cost was lower and the choice much greater.

The room was beautiful with an old-fashioned charm to it, and the service was impeccable - all of the staff were very friendly. We went on the free 2 hour tour of a number of temples, guided by a staff member who could not be more helpful - we thoroughly enjoyed it and highly recommend it. Breakfast was lovely, with a wide selection of foods. The location is very convenient for walking around Chiang Mai, and we would definitely recommend taking trips to Doi Suthep and Doi Inthanon whilst visiting the area. We stayed 3 days, but wished we'd stayed longer. Read less

Lovely comfortable massive bed with soft pillows in the deluxe Lana room Spotlessly clean room and hotel public areast 4 bottles of water in room each day Lovely, helpful staff who cannot do enough for you Great location for exploring old town area and further afield using transport Nice pool area Good restaurant but quite expensive Cheaper eating available the further you walk from the hotel Lots of restaurants in the immediate area Temples to visit on the doorstep We visited Doi Suthep - less than an hour drive from the hotel. Used hotel services to book and our tour guide Tana was brilliant and very accommodating. She took us to the Sticky Waterfalls in Bau Thong (national park) which was another 75 minute drive away for £3500. Great value for money with all the invaluable information she gave us and showed us places we would never have found by ourselves. 100% recommendation to stay here. Read less
