Overlooking the Mai Ping River, Anantara Chiang Mai is a stylish, modern oasis a world away from the hustle and bustle of central Chiang Mai. The contemporary Asian design here creates a serene atmosphere, and the 84 rooms are chic and stylish. After a busy morning market shopping, make the most of the spa and pool before indulging in the innovative menu at the Thai restaurant. Top off your day by heading to one of the three stylish lounges or sample a delicious cocktail at one of the hotel’s two bars.
Anantara Chiang Mai can be found in heart of central Chiang Mai, on the banks of the stunning Mae Ping River and just15-minutes drive from Chiang Mai International Airport. Offering tranquil riverside luxury, it’s hard to believe that the city’s best sights are just a stone’s throw away. Step out into a world of ornate temples, bustling markets and quirky cafes before cruising back down the river at sunset.
Polished wooden floors and ceiling-height glass doors leading to beautiful balcony views are just some of the special features that will strike you when you first step into the huge rooms at Anantara. The design is sleek and luxurious, with stylish Asian artwork and trendy open plan bathrooms behind thick wooden screens. Huge, comfortable beds promise a good night’s sleep and little extras, including a complimentary mini bar, may well make your room a trip highlight. Anantara also offers a number of one, two and three bedroom suites, making it an unrivalled choice in Chiang Mai for families.
Why we like it
Nothing beats dinner at The Service 1921. In our eyes, it is undoubtedly the best dining experience Chiang Mai has to offer. Housed in the resort’s splendid colonial house, previously home to the British Consulate, The Service 1921 brings the colonial era to live in a fun-filled reimagination of the British government’s secret intelligence service. So peer through the secret peep hole in the entrance door and brace yourself for an evening full of mystery and intrigue.
