Laluna is a great mid-range resort in Chiang Rai and one that would be a good choice for anyone with a few baht to spare though, with its delightful pool and gardens, is a particularly recommended option if you’ve got kids in tow.

Set slightly out of the town centre; located down a residential street close to the old airport, you’re a mere 60-baht tuk-tuk ride or 15-minute walk to the night bazaar. The lush garden is a welcome relief from the more centrally located concrete blocks elsewhere and since it’s set back from an already quiet road, Laluna Hotel is a very peaceful spot. The garden is almost worth a visit in its own right—beautifully designed and maintained—and leads to their centrepiece, a huge turquoise pool. Shallow too, (what’s the point in a 3m deep pool in a hotel garden?), so ideal for kids.

The rooms are single-storey, chalet style; well-appointed with huge flat screen TVs, fridge, tea and coffee making facilities, spacious bathroom and tasteful decoration. All rooms are basically identical except for position and bed disposition so prices reflect either garden or pool views and/or twin or king-size beds.

Cleaners and the numerous gardeners were super-friendly though, after numerous visits, we’d have to say the reception desk staff is more supercilious and aloof than in any 5-star resort we visited and they’re definitely doing you a favour by letting you stay there. They are of course helpful in a fashion, levels of English are certainly good and there’s plenty of info—including a full-on tour desk—in the lobby.

A big selling point is the pool.

The huge buffet breakfast is top-class and all was going swimmingly until we hit the in-house restaurant/bar, where the prices are seriously inflated. That said, a right turn out of the resort takes you to a couple of fine little I-san style cafes with local prices and as we said, the Night Bazaar area with accompanying eateries and restaurants is only a hop away.

They do have some 70 rooms but it is a popular spot with tour-groups so during high season it would certainly be better to book ahead to ensure a room as well as to avoid confusion.
