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.

The hotel is situated by the river. Room with river view looks stunning from here. It is slightly out of the way from the city centers so you will need to catch a taxi to the city about 5-10 min.However, They are good value if you go to the Riverie.

The Riverie is located on the banks of the river Kok in Chiang Rai. On arrival, initial impressions were a bit mixed: the hotel is very large, and the reception areas huge and sparsely populated. Checkin was quick and uncomplicated. Once into the river view room, spirits rose. The room is better in real life than the photos - sleek, clean and soothing in white, very spacious, and very comfortable beds. All mod cons provided, including an (empty) minibar fridge. Luxurious rainfall shower, convenient lighting (including bedside ceiling pendants, perfect for reading in bed) and international plugs. There was very little noise intrusion - although if you are in the eastern wing of the hotel (above the restaurant), you may hear live music from the restaurant in the evening. Staff were friendly and efficient, most so in the restaurant, but generally everywhere, although their ability to speak English varied. Breakfast offerings were bountiful and generous, and I liked that there was a rotating variety of Northern Thai dishes on offer. However, the memory that will stay with me the longest is the sight of the early morning mists over the river Kok as the sun slowly emerges in the January dawn, this must be one of the most beautiful aspects of this hotel. The Blossom cafe and lobby cafe have lovely visages overlooking the river. There are only a few nitpicking downsides - the pool is very exposed in the sun, with few trees to offset the lovely grounds. I hope in future, the hotel can maximise it's grounds for foliage and trees. The hotel is less convenient to town - it's at least a 20 min walk to town. Although there is a shuttle bus to the night market, it's chargeable. Overall, a very good stay, and I will make the long trip back to Chiang Rai to enjoy the warmth of the Riverie again. Read less

Nice hotel just beside the river. Very clean and great service. Room is designed by mix between Thai Lanna and modern style. Comfortable and good space. I booked to connected room. And it's good for family with two kids. The hotel also have a big pool and nice kids pool.

Let me start by the amazing rooftop bar. Wonderful view, tasteful decoration, excellent cocktails and life music. We had a corner room with large balcony and view on the river. Definitely an excellent choice in this hotel. Breakfast buffet was of great quality. Garden is beautiful. We can recommend also for longer stays, as it has all amenities.
