Nai Ya is a boutique city hotel which sets itself aside from any other hotel in Chiang Rai. We were invited to experience the homely comforts and luxurious setting whilst exploring the city and here are our highlights!
Most city hotels don’t have the oasis look and feel, and after exploring the sights, this was the best place to take a dip into the gorgeous wrap around pool and collapse on one of the most comfortable beds we’ve ever slept in!
We loved the style of Nai Ya because they combined modern comfort but still kept the authenticity of the Lanna identity from Chiang Rai, making sure you still felt like you were in Thailand.
Most importantly the staff treat you like family which was so welcoming and made our stay that extra special.
Nai Ya have a range of rooms you can choose from. Superior, Deluxe, Corner or Premium rooms each with luxurious bedding, bath robes, and a complimentary mini bar.
We stayed in the Deluxe Room overlooking the pool with a kingsize bed and were impressed with how much space we had in the room! It was the perfect size for hanging out after a long day out.
If you decide to hang around in Chiang Rai for a bit longer and have more time to spend relaxing at the hotel, you’ll also be spoiled with the beautiful gym they have to offer on the first floor. We don’t normally pay much attention to gyms when we’re away, but this one was really spacious and had brand new equipment. They also have their own coffee shop where you can enjoy a cup of coffee in their beautiful garden.
From the hotel you’ll have easy access to some of the main places you’ll need to get to in Chiang Rai:
Chiang Rai Clock Tower: 5 min by car
Walking Street (Saturday): 5 min by car
Chiang Rai Bazaar: 5 min by car
Wat Rong Khun (White Temple): 18 min by car
Wat Rong Suea (Blue Temple): 10 min by car
Central Chiang Rai Shopping Mall: 10 min by car
