Anantara Chiang Mai Resort & Spa

Chiang Mai, Thailand

The hotel

This elegant riverside retreat offers a sanctuary right in the city. Centrally located the Anantara Chiang Mai Resort is close to local attractions including the night market which is just 5-minute walk, but the hustle and bustle of the city will feel worlds away while you relax and admire the tranquil oasis around you. Designed in an impressive contemporary Thai style guests are treated to extremely comfortable deluxe rooms and suites, all with private courtyards, open balconies and breathtaking views. The Restaurant, in a split-level Colonial building, was once the British Consulate headquarters – where you can spend enchanting afternoons enjoying famous afternoon tea and high tea rituals or savour refined dining with sumptuous grilled cuisine beside the river.

Visited the Indian restaurant for dinner. Excellent river bank seating with beautiful views. Service was very good. Food (Vegetarian) was good but a level below expectations .......however had a great evening with the evening riverside views and very attentive staff. Quite expensive but worth it.

We went there for high tea and very satisfied with the quality and the quantity of the snacks and drinks. The drinks includes tea and smoothies. Ice cream also incuded. Service at Anantara are always outstanding. Polite but not overly polite. All the cups and plates were lined out perfectly. We sat underneath the large umbrella next to the river bank watching the boats and clouds passed by. There are not many guests around us and yet they have live music. I will go there again if I ever come to Chiang Mai. Read less

We had a great Spa treatment and it was extremely professional. The Spa was in excellent condition and the therapists very well trained. We had lunch on the patio which was absolutely dreadful. Our Pizza was cold and raw and yet we waited 30 minutes for it. We found the restaurant expensive
