Chala Number 6 sold me with its posted pics of a tranquil oasis in what I knew to be a hectic city. As we flew in, I feared it would be a disappointment. Fortunately, it was exactly as advertised. From the two story waterfall into the infinity pool to the open air bar and lounging area to the large, lovely and well-maintained rooms it was a great break in the middle of a busy couple of weeks of travel.
Once outside the hotel, there’s lots to see and do (the large Sunday Night Market is just outside the front doors and a large temple is across the street). Once in the hotel, it’s calm and beautiful.
The staff were all so helpful and accommodating. Lovely service! And the included breakfast buffet was large and had different savory options each morning. Some days options: pineapple fried rice, curry chicken, spaghetti carbonara (yes, I was unusually open to a different kind of breakfast). Loads of variety as well as the usual western eggs, omelettes, fruit and pastries. We ate dinner at the hotel almost daily with lots of outdoor seating options, if you prefer.
The Waya spa is beautiful, clean, and full service. We had massages a few afternoons.
Convenient to everything in Old Chiang Mai with tuk tuks to take you anywhere else, this hotel is one of my top hotels ever. The people are gracious and helpful giving the service five stars, as well
