The concept of The Chiang Mai Old Town hotel was based on the historic house built 60 years ago.
The Heritage House was originally owned by Khun Suphat Jantarasup and his family who were among the first families in the modern era presiding in the old city.
It has been transformed into the modern elegantly designed hotel while much of the original house was still preserved.
Soft grey tones, dark wood and vintage tiles tip their hats to classic mid-20th century style. Light and simple, these spaces give everything (and everyone) in the room to breathe.
Take in the old town views from your room – if you’ve booked the Panorama Suite you’ll have plenty to choose from. Plan your next move while swimming a leisurely lap of the pool.
Synonymous to the Shangri la brand, Shangri la Hotel Chiang Mai is a hotel that is not lacking in amenities and activities for the whole family.
Families with young children will be thrilled to know that there is a water slide to keep their kids entertained for a while.
Located in northern Thailand’s mountain ranges, the hotel is known for its family-friendly 5-star experience with the largest pool in the city and the easy access to the Night Bazaar.
Those who have tried the Shangri la hotel brand experience before will come to realise that Shangri la Chiang Mai is not short on the standard hospitality and services that makes it part of the Shangri la brand.
Rooms are decorated with a certain resemblance to the Siamese and Thai culture but not lacking in the luxurious quality that is synonymous with the Shangri la brand.
We especially love the large windows in the hotel rooms that offer a panoramic view of the forest and the city beyond, so be sure to pick one on the higher floors.
Always the ideal choice for a young family vacation or a couples retreat, we highly recommend you to give Shangri la Hotel Chiang Mai
a try for your next holiday adventure!
With its neat and modular architectural designs, Anantara Resort Chiang Mai is one of the most luxurious and modern resorts nestled along Chiang Mai’s Ping River.
The common areas of the resort along with all the rooms that come with its own balcony exudes a sense of calm and tranquillity with the use of wood in the wall and flooring designs.
If you happen to be lucky enough to stay at one of the ground floor Deluxe Garden View Rooms facing the peaceful water feature and garden beautifully juxtaposed against the natural flow of the Ping river.
However, that is not all.
The best kept hidden secret of Anantara is actually the Instagram worthy secret dining room which opens from a hidden library door (yes, you heard it right) built on the eccentric fantasy concept of the intelligence service you see in old spy movies, that is housed in the century-old British Consulate era heritage house.
Anantara Resort truly appeals to modern millennials like us looking for a peaceful vacation with a little bit of adventure, and we hope you will love this resort too.
Inspired by 19th-century colonial-style architecture, Na Nirand Romantic Boutique Resort’s residences are built in half-wood Lanna-Colonial style designs, bringing us to travel through time and back to that 19th-century era of this area.
Upon entering the resort’s compounds, we cannot help but notice the 100-year-old gigantic rain tree’s grand presence that resonates throughout the whole area.
It almost seems as if the resort is built around the tree, with the designs of the rooms and common areas having a mix of romantic and classical art with the infusion of local Lanna architecture as reflected through its warmth.
Be sure to check out the TIME Riverfront Cuisine & Bar that offers alfresco dining by the Ping River and the rooftop bar that offers a relaxing place to chill with your loved ones.
Na Nirand Resort is truly an ideal choice for couples looking for a romantic place to unwind and recharge themselves as it is located just along the Ping River.
With a lovely sunrise view by the raintree, yet it also offers the fun activities that Chiang Mai’s Old City is able to provide which is only a 5-10 minutes drive away.
