The Riverie by Katathani 

Go with the flow

This river-hugged landmark is a fresh and contemporary hotel close to Chiang Rai’s centre.

The Riverie delivers spectacular views from its enviable spot on an island in the Kok River. It was recently renovated and is centred around a dazzling gold-on-white theme – a cool contrast against the river’s earthy tones. And because this stretch of river is uncrowded, there’s plenty of space to breathe in the outstretched views. By the bright blue pool, you’re just a sun lounger’s space from the water and the rooftop Peak Wine & Grill has stunning vistas that bring you almost eye-level with watercolour mountains in the distance.

Why we love The Riverie by Katathani

  • This distinctive waterside hotel is looking better than ever, with a new light-filled design featuring northern Thai motifs

  • The location just outside the centre means you can be exploring Chiang Rai’s night markets and intricate temples in no time

  • Watery delights include flower-scented baths in the serene spa and a mini aqua park with slides for younger guests

  • You can dine on spicy Thai curries, dim sum dumplings or wagyu steak in the three restaurants, which all have river views
