Physically beautiful with a wonderfully helpful staff and great food.

We stayed there February 26 – March 1, 2018 to rest up from nearly three weeks in Myanmar and Bhutan. The room was handsomely appointed, well laid out and had excellent lighting. The wood beams and high ceiling of the room and the inner courtyard reminded me of the Monasterio in Cuzco Peru (minus the […]

Lovely hotel

We stayed here 3 nights during our time in Chiang Mai. It’s a wonderful hotel, beautiful decor and love all the flowers and natural elements. Room was great and maid service was excellent. Enjoyed the common areas as well – outdoor sitting areas, garden, and amazing pool!! Breakfast was delicious, our booking included the daily […]

Lovely and serene

This hotel is a lovely and serene property in the bustle of Chiang Mai, very traditional in style. The pool facility is excellent. Breakfast is excellent. The room was spacious and comfortable. However, the door is made of very heavy wood, and the only window fin the room faced a wall, so the room felt […]

wonderful place to stay if the architecture inspires you, but not expect five-star

The hotel is an architectural masterpiece in my view. If you share this view then you will appreciate your stay here very much. The design of the hotel creates a sense of monastic serenity within its walls. If Serenity is the result, Simplicity and Restraint are the techniques. Five primary materials are used constantly to […]

Crowded, bussling, narrow streets apperared to be the norm. Then our driver turned onto a side street and pulled into the calm and quiet of Rachamankha. The staff of the hotel and […]

Rachamankha Chiang Mai — Perfect Hotel!

Quaint, quiet, peaceful — we arrived Christmas night (2017) and had dinner in the open-air/outdoor dining area. There was a beautiful, roaring fire (real fire, not gas!) and a duet playing Christmas songs. Could not have been a more perfect evening. This is a lovely hotel. Service and food was excellent! Located in the center […]

Serene Refined Hotel

“Ratchamankha, Chiang Mai, Thailand The photos posted by other travelers hardly do justice to this exquisite jewel box of a hotel. Our family of four was lucky enough to stay in one of the newly opened two-bedroom suites. A long, covered balcony, complete with a silk-cushioned bench, runs the length of the suite, providing a […]

An Oasis of Peace

“My wife and I stayed for just one night at the Rachamankha hotel at the end of our wonderful holiday in Laos (courtesy of Pandaw) and Northern Thailand. It was just perfect, from the large beautiful room, to the restful swimming pool, to the bar and dining room. Its close to the main temple, and […]

Oasis in Chaing Mai

This Ong-ard-designed hotel is a marvelous oasis in this bustling city. The staff is extremely attentive and the restaurant is as good as any in town. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and the design continually surprises and pleases you. You can’t go wrong staying here

Pretty courtyard hotel

“* Lovely property – stunning courtyards * Nice restaurant * Big pool * Efficient service – if a bit stand-offish – not a major critcism though * Good number of relaxed social areas Would recommend it as a good place to stay – Top end and a good experience”
