Quiet, clean and calming stay


We loved Tamarind Village. Very tranquil, and all the staff were so nice. Dinners by the pool were nice with good food. The spa experience and massages were very relaxing. Our room was on the ground floor in the courtyard by the big Tamarind tree. I was amazed at how close we were to the busy street, as it was so quiet after your walked down the bamboo lined drive. So close to many temples and afternoon street markets. We will stay again when we return to Chiang Mai.

Wonderful experience

Dungarvan, Ireland

We had a fantastic 3 night stay here. Rustic boutique hotel with great staff who care for all your needs. Nice pool area. Chang Mai is a quirky place and the Tamarind is an excellent place to stay in the heart of the old city. Highly recommended.
