Chiang Mai

Hotels in Chiang Mai

Formerly The Chedi.

131-room hotel with tongue-in-cheek touches (the staff performs a chorus line during the afternoon shift switch), located next to the night bazaar. 

Twenty minutes outside Chiang Mai proper, with 12 poolside villas, plus pavilions that look onto rice paddies, the hotel’s two resident water buffalo, and the Mae Rim Valley.  Head to the timber-hewn cooking school for a day-long dive into traditional Thai cuisine.

A miniature Thai kingdom with 123 Lanna-inspired suites and villas on 60 acres that's the setting for a Buddhist prayer house, a 33,000-square-foot spa, and an arts-and-crafts village.
