“My mom and I stayed at the Rachamankha hotel this fall following a study abroad program I took part in for my graduate studies. What a beautiful place!!
The restaurant on the resort is beautiful, provides a huge breakfast, and the dinners there are delicious as well. If it’s in season, definitely order mango sticky rice for dessert- you will not be disappointed.
We stayed for 4 days to begin and were very pleased. We then left for Phuket for a week and returned to Chiang Mai and the Rachamankha. Our stay the second time was not as pleasant. We had trouble with our overhead light flashing when it was turned off and the air conditioner did not work well. The staff were as helpful as they could be regarding these issues, but because of the language barrier it was sometimes difficult to maneuver more than simple questions.
Their recommendations for restaurants were amazing. Definitely make your way to David’s kitchen at least once, and also The Whole Earth. You’ll need to take a taxi, songthaew or tuk tuk there, but the staff is helpful in arranging them.
It’s on the opposite side of the old city as all of the markets, but travel is easy to get there.
The grounds are beautiful there as well, and very well kept. The pool and library are both impressive.
We would definitely stay there again!”
