Hotels in Thailand

Thailand hotels include many, especially in Bangkok, from familiar luxury brands: there's the storied Mandarin Oriental, as well as a Four Seasons, the Peninsula, and Shangri-La. Many cater primarily to business travelers, but for leisure travelers they can provide a quiet retreat after a day of exploring exhilaratingly chaotic Bangkok. Though not cheap, these hotels in Thailand are often much more affordable than their counterparts in other capitals. For travelers on tighter budgets, the country abounds in hostels and guesthouses, while those looking for more local flair to their room for the night, new boutique hotels are giving Thailand hotels a stylish edge. On Thailand's islands, you can find options from resorts that offer villas with private pools to modest oceanfront beach shacks, while in the interior towns of Chiang Rai and Chiang Mai, many hotels are showcases of local handicrafts. The Four Seasons Tented Camp is among the best hotels in Thailand and has graced many a magazine cover, but there are also more reasonable and often just as charming options if that hotel is beyond your budget.
