X2 Vibe Chiang Mai Decem is the perfect hotel for young, trendy travelers looking for a modern, but affordable place to rest and rejuvenate. With three days left in Chaing Mai, we still had so many things to experience. We found this perfect boutique hotel that was close to a lot of places we still haven’t visited. The interior décor gives X2 such a chill vibe, lots of white, green, and blue accents to make you feel relaxed and refreshed. This hotel is perfect for Instagram photos! There are so many cool backdrops, like the vertical garden by the pool, the different wall textures in the rooms, and the plant décor in the open-air café. The staff were so helpful, anything we needed help with, they were happy to assist. They have a small information desk where you can book tours and request a taxi.
Once we checked in we were offered a refreshing welcome drink; a blue lychee juice in a cute glass bottle. Once we were finished, we took the elevator up to the 7th floor and entered our deluxe room. When we first entered, we saw the huge bed in the middle of the room, I loved that it had some charging outlets built into the headboard. Then looking out from our balcony, I realized we were on the top floor! From our room, you can see some of the city and the vertical garden that lines the pool down below. Next to the balcony door was a small desk where I could work on some photo editing and journaling. The bathroom was clean with gray marble walls; it also had a window that looked into the room. We had a very comfortable stay in our cozy room at X2 Vibe Chiang Mai Decem. The room is so worth the price!
When we had some down time between our Chiang Mai activities, we took some time to relax at the salt-water pool. It was quite small, but we had the pool all to ourselves. There are a few lounge chairs and you can order from that café if you want any poolside drinks. We got to enjoy the blue lychee drink (my favorite) and some fruit skewers. For nature lovers out there, they have a super tall wall filled with plants, giving off an earthy vibe. Take lots of photos here!
If you want to eat at the hotel so that you have more time to explore Chiang Mai, visit 4k Café on the ground floor. Here we ate our complimentary breakfast buffet, enjoyed some mango smoothies by the pool, and indulged in a wonderful dinner before heading out to the Night Bazaar. For breakfast, they have a large spread of different types of Asian and western food. On our second night, we enjoyed an intimate dinner including some mango daiquiris, hearty mushroom soups, and steak and salmon entrees!
X2 Vibe Chiang Mai is walking distance from a lot of shopping and food. On our first night, we walked to the MAYA, a multi-floor shopping mall with 2 full floors of food and a lot of different types of shops. If you walk a little further you can visit a small night market that sells trendy clothes. From some of the rooms, you can see Wat Doi Suthep, the golden temple on top of the mountain. From X2 you can take a taxi to the Chiang Mai Zoo and then hop on a red taxi (100 baht) to take you to the temple. If you want to venture into Old City Chiang Mai, it’s also a short taxi ride away as well! We explored the Night Bazaar and did some souvenir shopping.
We had an amazing and comfy stay at X2 Vibe Chiang Mai Decem. Everything worked out perfectly, and I’m so glad we stumbled across this hotel while doing our research. After a long day of adventuring through the city, it was nice to come back to our base camp with such a cool vibe. Thank you for having us!
