Located on the banks of the Mae Ping River, the Anantara Chiang Mai takes a contemporary approach to design and is among the most elegant and stylish of hotels in Northern Thailand. Add to this the gentle, unobtrusive but impeccable service and a superb restaurant specialising in innovative Northern Thai cuisine, and you have a slick city retreat.
Each room and suite at Anantara Chiang Mai has a minimalist décor with teak furnishings, open plan bathrooms and balconies offering incredible views of the river and mountains. The luxurious suites are twice the size of the deluxe rooms, with a comfy seating area and exclusive club service inclusive of a complimentary mini bar.
The resort has a delightful riverside pool where you can enjoy some rest and relaxation time. This pool is only open to guests aged 12 or older. For families with children under 12, there is a lovely rooftop pool in the resort's Serviced Suites building over the road. There are also plenty of sporting facilities such as aerobics classes and a Muay Thai boxing class. You can also learn how to give a Thai massage or even how to artfully carve fruit to impress at a dinner party upon return.
The central location of Anantara Chiang Mai makes the surrounding area easy to explore and there are endless activities such as fascinating hill tribe visits or specialist cooking schools.
