We stayed at Rachamankha during our honeymoon after staying at the Chedi Chiang Mai. Unfortunately, none of the suites were available, so we stayed in their smaller deluxe rooms. The room we stayed in was perfectly lovely and clean, but felt a little bit spartan and next time, would love to try the suite.
The common areas of the hotel are just beautiful. Understatedly stunning. All the staff we encountered were helpful and polite. Breakfast was great (although one very minor gripe about the cheese plate - it came with Babybel...(admittedly, we shouldn't have been so greedy as to have a cheese plate for breakfast!)). The Lanna-style lunch we had in the restaurant was utterly delicious - one of the best meals we had in CM.
We stayed here over new year's eve and attended a party which the owner of the hotel threw for guests and his friends. It was awesome - a spread of Lanna Thai food done in an "upscale" street food style (sounds an oxymoron, but they pulled it off with aplomb), about 4 different live bands (leading to the bizarre experience of dancing to a Thai cover version of YMCA three times in one evening), fireworks, floating lanterns, unlimited bubbly etc.
Overall, the room we stayed in didn't quite match up to the beauty elsewhere at Rachamankha, but it was still worth it to experience the uniqueness of this place.More
