This wonderful resort is located on the banks of the majestic Kok River, in the center of Chiang Rai. The Riverie is a huge resort where both couples and families will feel at home! There are different types of rooms, including the room in which we stayed. The room was exceptionally clean and spacious due to its size of 36 m2. From our room, we not only had a view of the pool and the Kok River, but also of the Wat Huay Pla Kang. This is a huge statue of Guanyin, the Chinese Goddess of Mercy, and a must-visit when you are in Chiang Rai!
This amazing 5-star hotel has an excellent gym with many devices and a huge water park with different slides and an adult pool bar. The extensive breakfast buffet is available from 06:00 to 10:30. On our first evening at the hotel, we dined at The Peak Wine and Grill, a fantastic rooftop restaurant at this majestic resort in Chiang Rai. Here we enjoyed a delicious three-course meal, accompanied by some excellent cocktails while watching the setting sun. You must have eaten here just for the view alone! We would like to personally thank the team of great hospitality professionals! If you are looking for good accommodation in Chiang Rai, then The Riverie by Katathani is definitely recommended!
