What We Love

  • Daily breakfast is included in the Jetsetter rate
  • A natural vibe, created with the arched bamboo entryway and the gorgeous 200-year-old tamarind tree
  • The sanctuary-like feel — even in the heart of Chiang Mai
  • Breakfast is served at the open-air restaurant overlooking the pool
  • Courtyards to daydream in, lit by candles at night

What To Know

  • There is a two-night minimum stay
  • A 10 percent service charge per night will be collected upon checkout from Jetsetter
  • Better for couples — a little too snug for families
  • Located on the city’s most touristy street
  • The shallow pool is more for wading than actual swimming
  • WiFi can be spotty, and there are no iPod docks
  • This is a small boutique property; those looking for five-star luxury and amenities should book elsewhere
  • From May 15 and June 30, 2015 and from September 1 – October 31, 2015 renovation work will be taking place in certain areas of the hotel. Please see the details section for more information.

EXCELLENT

This magical place call ed the tamarind village is a little oasis tucked in the old town of Chiang Mai
So tranquil with the roosters saying good morning is the only noise you will hear
The General Manager is an absolute delight along with all the staff that make Tamarind the place it is
We stayed 11 nights and was a little concerned we may have booked for too long
BUT
by the end of our trip we were sad to leave as we felt we new all the staff so well
The spa is lovely and we had three various treatments there
The restaurant is superb with a lot of outside guest enjoying it also
The breakfast was always varied and we did not tire of it for saying we were there so long
They make children very welcome
The pool area is also good with shade or sun
All in all Tamarind made our holiday very memorable

Nice hotel

I stayed with my husband for my 50th bday. Staff are so lovely. Our room was very dark though 2201 i would not recommend this room as couldnt open curtains or Windows and i would have loved a balcony. Weather was rubbish but nothing can be done about that. As i celebrated my 50th whilst there i thought a little something would be nice as in a cake or something. We ate in restaurant as got a buffet meal complimentary but still paid i think 1700 as we had some drinks. Very expensive we thought. Breakfasts were lovely.

A calm bliss

Arrived after spending 4 days in the hectic city that is Bangkok and this felt like the wind down that we needed. The whole place has a very calming feel to it and the staff are very friendly. The rooms are nice with a very authentic feel to them and the pool is small but nice. The breakfast was ok but nothing to shout about.

Tamarind organises free village walks once a week (I think) which are good for giving you an introductory walk of chaing mai. The hotel is a short walk from a small food court serving a few different foods and there's plenty of places to eat within 10-15 minutes walking distance. The hotel restaurant is very nice but also a little expensive, we ate here as it was chucking it down and we didn't fancy trying to get anywhere in it. We paid around 1700 baht for our meal but I don't recall it that was 3 courses and after a 300 baht discount. A little expensive but very nice.

The location of the hotel is very good if you want to see a night market as a very good one sets up right outside the hotel on a sunday evening from 5pm and is massive, we didn't see all of it as it's easy to get lost in it. If you do go to the night market it begins to get busy around 7:30 and by 8 it's rammed so consider going a little earlier to have a look before everyone else turns up.

The prices for the mini-bar are reasonable for a mini bar, beer is around 80 baht which is what you'll get charged at any restaurant anyway. Tamarind also does different activities every day 3pm-4pm. We only went one day as we were busy but it was making herbal medicine balls, we were only there about ten minutes but it was a nice little touch and felt like another authentic thai experience. I wouldn't definitely come back here, great if you want a relaxed feel.

A delightful Boutique Hotel

I stayed here for a weekend following a conference in a larger Hotel north of Chiang Mai. Travelling alone, it had been recommended to me by a local and what a perfect weekend it was. It is a combination of local charm, fantastic location and 5 star comfort. The Spa is incredible and I luxed out on a 3 our Pamper treatment which was amazing. The restaurant was outstanding, the staff friendly and professional. I could not fault this place and as a woman travelling alone I felt perfectly safe. I will definitely be back for a longer stay in the future.

Lovely setting to stay in Chiang Mai
Reviewed 1 week ago

A lovely little setting to stay for honeymoon in Chiang Mai. Charming area in a quiet setting, with a lovely little pool and bar area to relax in.

Well located, with very helpful and friendly staff. They stepped in to help us when our transfer didn't arrive as we were due to leave. We were very grateful.

If there was one criticism, is that they allowed a noisy family with children to dominate the pool area. This wouldn't have been a problem in a larger hotel, but being small and boutique, it would have been nice to have had pure peace and quiet.

Other than that, a very nice place to stay.
