Choosing a luxury resort is in Chiang Mai is a process that involves figuring out what you want to experience and how much you are willing to pay for it. Accommodation is quite a personalized choice; it’s not unusual for two sets of holidaymakers providing very different reviews for the same resort. There are several things to think about when choosing the luxury accommodation that is the perfect match for you.
Budget: Even if you are financially comfortable and don’t need to be on a budget, you still (naturally) want to get the best deal and optimum value for your money. The costs of luxury accommodation in Chiang Mai vary, but you can generally expect to pay less here than in the US or the UK. For about $1,000 per night, you can book a completely private luxury villa where you and your party are the only guests. That’s fantastic value especially if it’s all-inclusive, so that all your meals (from breakfast to dinner) are covered. You should never have to pay for anything once you’re there—no fees for the mini bar, for extra pool towels, etc.
Location: Where is the resort or hotel located? Some of the top luxury accommodation options in Chiang Mai are in the Mae Rim valley, neighboring The Four Seasons. This location puts you in a quieter part of Ching Mai while being a short drive from the city center. Mae Rim is an almost magical place on the foothills of the Himalayas, away from distractions and stress of downtown.
Children: Are you vacationing as a family, with young kids? If so, ask if the resort or hotel has adequate facilities for the little ones—from cribs for babies to a refrigerator in the room or villa so you can store formula. Conde Nast has named some of the best family-friendly luxury accommodation in Chiang Mai. You can’t go wrong with any of them.
