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.

A thoroughly exceptional experience! The hotel is beautiful but it was the service provided by each and every member of the crew that was amazing! Always with a beautiful smile on their faces, warm and friendly. Managed to have a little chat with Tara from the Kasara lounge who has been there for about 6 months to date. What was heartfelt was how highly she praised the whole Anantara franchise and how the staffs are treated - like family. It is not just about a 5-star hotel, but it's about the memorable experience that we got from the place. These people were truly happy and that reciprocated through the services we received throughout our stay because they too made us feel like family. It was simply spectacular. Read less

The hotel is in great shape and very beautiful. There is a lot of attention to detail and the staff are very helpful. The location of the resort is great. The pool looks small in the photos but it’s actually a very decent size, very clean and great for doing laps and relaxing. Love the koi pond right next to the pool.
