Amarin Resort Chiang Rai - More Than Just A Budget Hotel

Since our stay in Chiang Rai is very short, we picked our hotel stay with a lower budget. After days of research and reading reviews in agoda web (the only website I love reading hotel review!), I finally chose this hotel - Amarin Resort.

In my opinion, I think Amarin Resort is between a regular hotel and resort, not exactly a hotel, not exactly a resort.

Its location is considered a little isolated, and hard to search with GPS. It looked like residence houses from the outside. 

Ample of parking space!

Love the tranquility of how the rooms are surrounded by trees

The reception counter

The hotel lobby

I love the concept of Amarin Resort! Their cottage-style room give some extra privacy with the small distance between houses. Not as crowded as in the hotels and we get more space for ourselves.

Tons of pics of his because he wasn't willing to be a photographer of mine! :P Well see the bench outside each rooms, very thoughtful. Perfect to chill in the morning/ evening but sadly we didn't have the time with our less than 24-hour schedule.

The Room:

Very cozy and spacious

The reason why I picked this is the cleanliness and big space of the room. Many of the reviews from agoda mentioned the room is clean, cozy and quiet. In fact, most of the reviews are "there are only tress and rooms", but that is more than enough for me. 

Cozy bed

The comfort level is way beyond my expectation for the price we've paid! I'm more than satisfied. :)

The snack area

Immediately bought snacks and cup noodles from convenient store because we try not to spend extra for food in the hotel room. Thailand snacks and instant noodles are irresistible!

Two complimentary drinking water

Tea & Coffee

The room is very spacious (32 s.q.m.) ! 

Bathroom is simple. No bath tub, floor is a little slippery after shower in the shower area and the toilet bowl is too low. Not too suitable for elderly. 

The only weird thing is the wardrobe, it's in the bathroom! Things provided are bath robe, a small safety box, 

and room slipper.

Our stay comes with the complimentary breakfast.

Those are all the foods provided


Tea & Coffee


Very basic breakfast with limited choice

1. Cheap

4. Free wifi
