Charming boutique hotel set in the heart of Chiang Mai

Set in the heart of historic Chiang Mai, the chic Tamarind Village is a charming boutique hotel designed in the traditional Lanna style. With just 42 rooms the hotel offers intimate settings for a city break and guest rooms which are simply yet elegantly furnished.

Whitley Bay, United Kingdom

Visited the tamarind Village hotel for three nights in June. Hotel is so nice but in every aspect. The setting , staff, food and service is excellent. Beautiful place well positioned in the centre whilst also beautiful and very quiet and tranquil . Booked a day trip out to Doi Inthanon Park through the hotel and Kandy out guide was first class. I would stay here again without a doubt !

A boutique hotel

Tamarind village is a boutique hotel with a majestic tamarind tree in the courtyard. It is a small hotel, with lobby, restaurant and pool the only public area for hotel quests. I stayed for 2 days in Lanna room on the 2nd floor of the building. Clean room with northern Thai Lanna furnished. The room smaller than what expected, especially toilet and shower room area (lower ceiling, if you taller than 180cm your head probably can hit the ceiling) / not sure if the other room are the same. Not really like the room design and lay out / small window and feel pike in a cocoon. Breakfast was delicious, i like the traditional northern style cuisine option. Staff was polite and friendly.
