We had a junior suite eith bsthtube, but suggest you book room with an own balcony. Breakfast was very good combine with east and west influence on the tables. It was really nice to enjoyed outside by the river.
staying at dusit island resort chiang rai was one of the best hotel experiences i had while in northern thailand. thats why i still like to express my gratitude to the management n staff of this wonderful place n write this report.. i stayed in an island suite. i contacted hotel by email n arranged limousine service from/to chiang rai airport n it worked well.. upon arrival the check-in procedure was done in a very friendly, explanatory n speedy way. i paid the room in advance thru my travel agent so i just had to leave a reasonable deposit for extra charges as i dont use credit card. but that is very common n no problem at all. so first impression was ++ .. once we i saw my suite it was another wow factor. everything to my liking (typical northern thai style) n much more than what a traveller expects from a hotel..it felt more like a homy apartment! the suite size is more than expected (abt 100sqm) but most important is that each part of the design n architecture of the room makes sense. u have power plugs, lamps, drawers, etc at the right places n all seemed to work properly.. there is a desk which is truly large enough to work on it. the chairs were comfy.. the bed, in my opinion the most important feature of a hotel room, was excellent n gave me hour long deep sleep, which is quite rare for me. so the matress was great. i move around during my sleep but the bed was wide enough.. the bathroom was well equipped, all impeccably clean n no stains or limescale. the cleaning department makes an excellent job. which can be said for the entire room. the complementry shower gel, soap, lotion, shampoo etc is of very high quality n enough quantity.. now commenting on f&b.. i ate breakfast at island cafe restaurant n the buffet choice was outstanding n quality very good n all fresh. buffet was always replenished n service always on hand to refill coffee tea or whatever one required. i hv to compliment about the eggs benedict/poached eggs. best i ever got at any hotel.. i had dinner at the peak restaurant. highly recommended. gorgeous view but most of all, excellent service n delicious steaks etc.. our waiter was very knowledgeable abt wines n we hit it spot on! it is considered to be chiang rais best western restaurant n i agree. we also tried some of the tasty snacks at pool side. very delicious, freshly prepared n in timely mannor. food n drink poolside very competitively priced n service excellent. the check-out process was as speedy as the check-in. baggage pick up frm room without a problem, called reception n somebody came within 5minutes.. checking the bill was easy cause all correct. the cash deposit deducted frm bill - as it should be. to sum it up: it was a wonderful experience n i wished i could have stayed longer. but surely i will be back n i will wholeheartedly recommend the dusit island resort chiang rai resort to our friends n to everybody here at tripadvisor..
Overall, an impressive 5-star hotel filled with all of the amenities and services one could ask for. Except for the fitness room. Ambient temperature seems to be kept at a sweltering 27°C and there's an inexplicable lack of ventilation. There's an oscillating fan for the attendant that signs people in. But none for anyone actually exercising. The towels and water are nice, but I might not have needed 2 litres of water and 3 towels if the gym were less of a sauna and there were a fan to help keep myself cool. Bizarre decision from management that made an otherwise 5-star review, a four.
As you come in to the Lobby,you cannot help but be impressed,it just shouts style. A beautiful Hotel,excellent staff,friendly,a good restaurant downstairs at a reasonable price for a Hotel of that class. The rooms are lovely,bathroom needs updating,but certainly satisfactory. A bit out of the main area,but we paid 150 baht for the 4 of us in a tuk tuk to the center of town,so fairly cheap. Stayed there for 2 nights during trip to the North,would certainly stay again.
Interior decoration is a bit backdated but still offers all we need in our stay. The hotel needs a bit of maintenance but doesn't prevent comfortable stay. Staff is so helpful and friendly. They offer help even before being asked. They work together as one team to deliver quality of service to our stay.
A beautiful location, requires a taxi ride into town. The pool is beautiful with gorgeous views. Our room was spacious but dated. It's rainforest country so there were a lot of ants and geckos outside on the terrace. I saw some in the main restaurant too. The elevator attendant was very sweet and gracious.
The room was old and outdated. The bathroom needed an upgrade. The grounds and the pool are lovely and you will be impressed with the lobby. The staff was not very friendly or accommodating. Would not really recommend this hotel
I have been hosting student and adults to Thailand for many years and the Dusit Island Resort just a short walk out of the centre of Chiang Rai is my choice of accomodation. This resort is a wonderful place to stay while enjoying the many attractions in this unique area of northern Thailand. There are so many things to do in the North and you simply can't get a more suitable resort. The breakfast is superb and the locally made Thai coffee is outstanding. When I travel with my groups we always try to stay in for dinner because the buffet selection is not only amazing but also many organic options are available. The hotel is a leader in organic sustainable foods and fruits. To wake up to the views along the Kok River is a joy. I also won't to make special mention of the staff at this hotel. There is something very special about the sincerity of all who work at the Dusit and you really feel so genuinely welcome. Don't miss the opportunity to stay here and re think your time maybe add on a few extra days, you will fall in love with not only this resort but the area.
I recently stayed here for a couple of nights. Comfortable bedroom, splendid public rooms, dining room, helpful staff and an excellent breakfast. Great location for accessing the town and it's night market.
Very good hotel , the rooms are bid and clean , the food is good , the location is few minutes in cab to city center (120 bth). I will return back to this hotel if I will be in Chang rai. The staff was very nice to us :)
