We stayed in the "White Elephant Suite" in Sept. 2015 and loved what it offered --- the best and largest accommodation with a large balcony in the back of the property. You do pay a little more but you get much more luxury, privacy, space and best of all "River View". The hotel location is just a little bit out... More

Breakfast by the river was nice and the staff was very welcoming and helpful - especially the men with the whistles who help you back up the car into traffic! But there are two problems - the mosque and the hard beds. The hotel... More

The Aruntara Riverside appears to be quite a new boutique hotel. Everything is fresh and ship-shape. Architectually, the hotel is quite beautiful. There is a large reception area, an open courtyard leading to a large lawn and then the serene Ping River. Breakfast can be taken beside the river, although there is also an air-conditioned room for the less romantic/more... More

I had a lovely stay here, nice relaxed place. The staff were super helpful, they were so keen to help. The free bicycles were great too! I took one to town, perfect distance. Clean and well maintained room. Breakfast was nice, and the pool was ideal- quiet and well kept.
