Rural location surrounded by verdant rice paddy fields
Impressive Thai cookery school
98 pavilions, pool villas and larger residences
Four outstanding restaurants to choose from
The Four Seasons Chiang Mai is a stunning resort set in the beautiful Mae Rim Valley, just north of Chiang Mai. It is designed like a traditional Thai village, laid out around working rice terraces and surrounded by mountains, and a stay here feels like stepping into another world yet is just 30-minutes drive from the center of Chiang Mai.
The spacious pavilions and huge residences are luxuriously appointed with local touches, and all have outdoor salas with daybeds. Twelve luxurious one-bedroom villas set in tropical gardens have been added to the portfolio at the Four Seasons Chiang Mai, with stunning views onto the mountains and spacious private pools.
The renowned cuisine here must be sampled to be believed and not only is the food fantastic but the settings for the various restaurants simply stunning. For the ultimate in romance, the Rice Barn is a private dining venue for two overlooking the resort's rice paddies and lake - after a five course candlelit meal, designed by yourselves with the chef, you can release a krathong - or banana leaf cup - containing a candle, onto the lake in traditional Thai style.
From the hotel, you can explore the rich culture of the local area, visit elephant sanctuaries or take part in a cookery class preparing local dishes at the renowned cooking school. The resort is well equipped for all ages with an award winning spa with plentiful indulgent rituals, and has something to suit every pace of vacation.
When to visit
The cooking course at Four Seasons Chiang Mai is the best I have ever done. Visiting the market with the chef is great fun and the setting where you learn to cook is amazing. It is worth pre-booking though as it really popular.
