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

- 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

How to Get There
We stayed here for 4 nights whilst on honeymoon and had the loveliest time. The staff make this hotel so special, they are attentive, helpful and speak excellent English. The village has traditional rustic charm. Above all the small personal details made the experience so special - not only small touches in our room but also cultural afternoon activities and an organised tour of the city temples. If you are visiting Chiang Mai this hotel is a must!
I chose Tamarind Village because it is located at the Old City of Chiang Mai hence we able to enjoy the Sunday Night Market. Tamarind also the largest hotel establishment at the area hence able to offer bigger room size.
Around May 2019, I booked Tamarind Suite on regular rate. By Sep, they are offering promotions for the Suites hence communicated with the Reservation Team and we secured the promo rate (they offered Spa Suite, but I wasn't keen with outdoor shower). The promotion rate gave so many discounts which worked wonderful for us because we every night with dine and enjoy massage at the spa. Our daily laundry also enjoyed discounted rate. The promo also covered the airport transfer for us.
Tamarind Hotel doesn't look like a hotel from outside because of the long entrance to the hotel. We love the entrance that covered with bamboo tree and light up at night.
I informed that my husband is allergic to synthetic chemical hence they can't use any air freshener or synthetic bug spray in the room. The request was really taken care off. All of our laundry came back with no 'fake' perfume smell from soap or fabric softener.
Because there's not much rooms in the hotel, the staffs able to focus to the guests and their requests. There's a problem with the shower drainage, we informed in the morning, when we return around 5pm, all fixed.
Our Tamarind Suite is on the ground floor, corner, quiet. We saw the squirrel running up and down the 200 years old Tamarind tree daily.
The suite size is perfect for our 4 big luggage. Huge bathroom with double vanity, dressing table, shower, and bathtub.
The restaurant is lovely, great food, and my husband loves 2 gentlemen who perform a great acoustic songs.
The spa is the BEST that we ever experienced. Yes, Tamarind Spa is expensive compare to the massage prices outside the hotel. But, we found our fave masseuses, these 2 ladies relief our tired and aching muscles every night. We lived in South East Asia for a long time so we are used to Thai / Chinese massage, and these 2 ladies are so talented, so good, I would like to keep their identity secret.
I always love small hotel group especially local hotel group as they able to the authentic local personality and atmosphere into their property and service. Tamarind Village really show case Chiang Mai's hospitality that is different from Bangkok and other parts of Thailand.
We are planning to return to Chiang Mai and definitely will be at Tamarind Village again.
Stylish and comfortable.
Nicely decorated, best location, good service, good food, good price.
The only thing comment is better to have the exhaust fan in all rooms.
Would recommend to my friends to stay in this hotel when visiting Chiang Mai.
