The Riverie by Katathani Chiang Rai

Chiang Rai, Thailand

The hotel

Framed by the flowing waters of Kok River, The Riverie by Katathani is a unique hotel in a unique island setting. Its slick modern architecture is softened by authentic details in keeping with its location – like ornate fretwork, elegant arches, and structures reminiscent of Far Eastern pagodas and temples. The rooms also mix contemporary comforts with cultural touches, with Lanna-like lamps and lotus flower-inspired bedhead artwork. Its island setting doesn’t cut The Riverie off from the rest of Chiang Rai, with shopping, dining and attractions all nearby – although it also has five bars and restaurants of its own, including the Jujube Bar at its fabulous riverside pool.

I was here three years ago when it was still owned by another brand. It is now a game-changer. The whole place is recently renovated with modern decor. Staff service attitude is representing 5-star standards, unlike before. The room itself is now bright and modern, while the old bathtub is replaced by a shower and a vanity corner. Breakfast is superb, yet it is currently on an à-la-carte basis, with a variety of food and drinks. The spa is a hidden gem. The masseuse will be part of the reason of me coming back. Checking-in and out is seamless, thanks to Joy and Nuch, who have been being here since the previous owner. Read less

We really enjoyed our 1 night stay at The Riverie. Everywhere we went the staff were very friendly and welcoming. Our room had a beautiful view of the lake, mountains and white Buddha from a far. The bed and pillows were soft and we both had a good nights sleep. We loved relaxing by the pool and some drank delicious cocktails at the pool bar. At night time we went to the Wine Bar & Grill on the top floor and enjoyed a perfectly cooked sirloin and salmon steak. Breakfast in the morning was full of choice; either international or Thai cuisine. I would highly recommend coming to this hotel if your looking for a place to wind down and relax. We don't have kids yet but the hotel has a lot of actives and a water park for children if you have a family. Read less
