Nice ResortPosted Jul 6, 2014
Had a great stay at this resort, our room was upgraded upon arrival at no extra costs which was nice of them to do, staff were great, breakfast and internet was included. The room we had was a good size, a nice and relaxing feel to it had everything we needed. Location wise it is abit away from the main city area but if you want to get away from all the noise this is the place for you. Overall, its a nice design resort, people are pleasant and I would come back to stay again.

Nice hotel, but a little too far from town.Posted Jun 3, 2014
Pros: The grounds and quit
Cons: Cheaper transportation and better food
Location: Too far from town
Hotel grounds are very nice, very quit and relaxing. A little too far from town. Hotel charges 80 THB per person, each way to go to Night Market (150 THB by tuk tuk) and 200 THB per person to airport. Restaurant is nothing special. Be there early for breakfast or buffet may not full complement of food and they had difficulty with providing cheese for an omelet. If I return to Chiang Rai, I’ll find something closer to town.

Great PlacePosted Dec 3, 2013 on Hotels.com
We arrived late in the evening and we didn't notice the beauty of the hotel design and landscaping. The staffs were very friendly and courteous. The room was nice, clean, and comfortable. The international breakfast was good.

So Far awayPosted Jul 30, 2013
Pros: Design like its not too bad, looks like a Thai village
Cons: Service with a smile
Location: Chiangrai is great, many things to do, but the hotel staff was unable to offer any help on the matter
The hotel is quite far from the town and far away from airport and bus station. There is a shuttle, but they charge a lot to use it (about 200 baths for 2 persons one way). Service was really on the short side, like no information at all about the available tours around ChangRai. We had to go to town to find really cool people who arranged a one day trip to the Golden Triangle and the Myanmar border.

We are away from center just 10 minutes and 15 minutes from airport if we compare us with another hotel in center we are one of the nearest one from airport and it might be far from center for the first visit and unfamiliar place due to we are resort style and focus on unspoiled peace and relaxation. We have tour recommended is available at front desk as well. So anyway thank you very much for your comment we will keep them for improving us.

Hotel for all.Posted Nov 24, 2012
Pros: comfortable room and the swimming pool.
Location: Was handy for visiting Doi Tung, The Black house and The White Temple.
The Phowadol is a clean, pleasant hotel with everything you could need. The restaurant was fine, not 5 star - but it's not 5 star price. The staff were helpful and on hand when needed. The pool was clean and plenty of sun loungers although the cushions were a bit grubby. The gym has no air-con so it was quite warm (even in November) so my husband tells me! The jacuzzi was full of cold water and the sauna was switched off. I couldn't imagine using it any way in such a warm climate. All-in-all a really pleasant stay.

Wonderful relaxed resortPosted Nov 14, 2012
Pros: On arrival we were given a welcome drink in a beautiful tropical open air reception area with prompt service swimming pool & breakfast beautiful
Cons: The very firm bed
Location: Chiang Rai is a great base to see the North of Thailand from. The kings mothers gardens are a must see. Take a trip to the border of Burma at Mai sai.
Appart from the hard bed everything else at this resort was superb. We got a really good deal through expedia which included a wonderful breakfast. We couldn't ask for more than that. The rooms are very tastefully decorated with lovely complimentary snacks and water. I would go there again any time. It is a lovely relaxed place to go with a beautiful large oasis swimming pool. You do need a car to get to and from though so for anyone who hasn't got one it could be a problem although I think the hotel does have a shuttle bus.

Lovely peaceful resort!Posted Aug 2, 2012
Pros: Tranquil, lovely grounds, workout room, pool
Cons: Cost for taxi, shuttle to and fro the city
Beautifully landscaped grounds. Nice outdoor pool right next to a large work out facility. Rooms spacious and with all the amenities including dvd rental - free! Included with our package was a wonderful breakfast buffet. It is very peaceful and serene. Down side is its distance from Chiang Rai city. You need to take a taxi or hotel shuttle which costs $.

Chiang Rai hotelPosted Jan 6, 2011
Very nice hotel and room in main building. Quite a large property. Large hotel that seems to cater to tour groups, both foreign and domestic. Hotel staff very helpful in arranging tours. Hotel is outside of city. Will need to take taxi into town and back to hotel. They do have a free shuttle in evening that will take you to night bazaar. Food at hotel restaurant was very good.
