Hotels in Chiang Mai

You won’t be lacking in options when it comes to hotels in Chiang Mai.You can choose between luxury resorts and more affordable options, as well as furnished apartments for longer stays. Homes are also available for rental in the countryside surrounding the city. Hidden inside the heart of the old city, the Rachamanka is a tranquil oasis, composed of a series of lovely courtyards that house 23 rooms and two suites. The hotel’s simple yet delicate style shows Asian elegance at its best, and this attention to detail translates to the restaurant, too, where you can sample traditional Burmese, Lanna and Shan cuisines.

The Anantara Chiang Mai Resort & Spa is not just a luxurious retreat–it’s also one of the most relaxing hotels in Chiang Mai. You’ll find private balconies in each room, a refreshing riverside pool, yoga lessons, a spa, and several dining options, including Indian cuisine at the Colonial House. The intimate Tamarind Village Hotel is conveniently located in the old city, yet its courtyards, filled with flowers and trees, will make you feel as if you were far from the busy streets. Aside from spacious, comfortable bedrooms, the hotel offers an array of in-house activities, including umbrella painting and complimentary walking tours of the area.
