Welcome to Rim Resort in Chiang Mai, Thailand! This boutique hotel - a Sodha Traveler favorite - is located in the Old Quarter near temples, markets, and shopping. Though the exterior architecture is colonial-Lanna style , there is a contemporary elegance in the furnishings and interior design. The property also offers complimentary wifi, a shuttle to the popular Night Bazaar, a rooftop terrace, and poolside bar.
There are a total of 36 rooms, ranging from Superior to Suites. Take note of the expansive bathrooms - a wonderful and rare feature of Thai hotels. The daily breakfast buffet is substantial and offers a variety of Thai and Continental dishes, as well as made-to-order items. Most notable, however, is the level of service. The Rim Resort truly understands customer satisfaction and will personalize the stay for each traveler. Though often not speaking fluent English, the staff welcomes each guest with warmth and hospitality. Be sure to book early - rooms here can sell out over six months in advance!
When visiting Chiang Mai, plan a trip to Wat Doi Suthep. Perched on a forested mountain, this most sacred Chiang Mai temple provides a superb view over the city, as well as a wealth of images and frescoes. Then, pass the city's biggest market, Talat Warorod, before visiting Wat Chedi Luang and Wat Phra Sing.
