THE WHAT’S UP GUIDE TO RESORTS IN CHIANG MAI

Na Nirand Boutique Resort

Chiang Mai boasts a collection of holiday resorts which provide guests with a relaxing home away from home. A few of the resorts are in or close to the Old City while others are spread out in nearby districts. Baan Suan Residence is one of the exceptions and is located in a rural village area slightly north of Chiang Mai.

Most establishments classed as resorts in Chiang Mai come with lush tropical gardens featuring a full repertoire of indigenous Thai plants and trees. In the case of the Twenty Lodge, gurgling streams provide a relaxing sound. Guests checking in will find they have rooms with the likes of polished wooden floors, marble-tiled bathrooms and furniture crafted from old teakwood.

Almost everything is provided at these resorts and it is only the magnetic pull of Chiang Mai’s attractions which entices many a visitor to go out exploring. Rooms, villas and suites are air-conditioned and generally have TVs with international cable channels, minibars, coffee makers and refrigerators.

Restaurants and swimming pools are standard resort facilities and come with extras which are fitness rooms, spas and onsite massage treatments. The What’s Up recommendations on the best resorts in Chiang Mai are shown below.
