The most important is we have a spacious and peaceful room. Loving the huge bed and wonderful pillows, not forgetting the nice balcony for hang out with our...

You could almost make a trip to Chiang Mai just to experience the stay in this wonderful oasis. Rooms were very elegantly decorated. The complimentary drinks and food was a pleasant surprise. Fresh fruits in the library with a very...

I felt like this was my home away from home. The hotel's vintage Mercedes Benz dropped us at their gorgeous white colonial style mansion turned guest house (we booked through the hotel's webpage so pick up and drop off were included at no extra charge). The rooms are spacious and charming, with large soaking tubs, comfortable beds, cute bags filled...

Everything about this hotel was superb.... from the breakfast to the service, from the oxidated swimming pool to the location. The hotel is beautiful and very inviting. The service was superb. We asked for a car and driver to take us to attractions in the hills (tribal villages, temples, etc.). Our driver, Man, was wonderful. He spoke enough English and...

From the moment we were graciously welcomed to Ping Nakara, to the very last minute we sadly left this hotel, our stay was nothing short of amazing. Our room was just exceptional - immaculate, comfortable, spacious. The attention to detail was greatly appreciated - various pillow choices; adorable toiletries pouch; complimentary mini bar/snacks.

Even for only 1 night but we had a very pleasant stay in Ping Nakara. The room is nicely decorated. Bath tub is big enough for us to soak and relax in warm water after a long day in town. The bed is so big that we slept like a rock. Highly recommended.
