MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

From the inside, Tamarind Village feels like nothing so much as a countryside boutique resort — never mind the fact that it’s right in the heart of the urban hub of northern Thailand, the city of Chiang Mai. It’s a pretty good compromise for those who desire a bit of laid-back serenity along with healthy doses of old-city sights and nightlife. A short walk beneath the bamboo arch that serves as the gateway, past the 200-year-old tamarind tree that gives the hotel its name, and one more or less leaves the city behind.

The rooms were designed and decorated with the region’s tribal heritage in mind — lacquer boxes and boldly patterned fabrics add kitsch-free charm. There’s a decidedly spare feel to the rooms, a winning combination of throwback comfort and sleek modern design. Wi-fi and satellite TV are standard, and bathrooms are stocked with amenities created specifically for Tamarind Village. At the higher end, the spa suite adds a spacious terrace, outdoor shower, and private access.

A quick trip out through that dreamy bamboo corridor, and you’ll find yourself a few minutes from a plethora of riverside dining options, along with the city’s legendary night bazaar. For those who’d prefer to stay ensconced within the leafy confines of the hotel, the Ruen Tamarind Restaurant hews closely to traditional northern Thai dishes without feeling stodgy. This kind of enhanced homage also defines the spa, which draws on regional practices and adds a wide selection of contemporary wellness techniques.
