The serene Anantara Chiang Mai Resort is located along the banks of Mae Ping River with views towards Suthep Mountain. The resort merges the old and the new with a modern, understated bamboo-clad design that centres on the original 1920s colonial building that was the former British Consulate. An abundance of open airways encourage a smooth breeze, while water has been used to great effect, bringing a sense of tranquillity to the property.
Luxurious and minimalist designed rooms are decorated in muted tones, teak flooring and have private courtyards or balconies. Facilities include a flat-screen cable TV, a coffee machine, a minibar and a rain shower. Suites have open plan bathrooms with tubs, a dining area, club lounge access and butler service.
Surrounded by scented gardens and water features, the spa offers massages, sauna rooms and body treatments. There is also an outdoor pool (adults and children 12+), a well-equipped fitness centre, plus yoga and aerobics classes.
Peruvian and Indian specialities can be enjoyed at The Restaurant while The 1921 Restaurant & Bar serves Asian cuisine. Light bites and afternoon tea are served in The Lobby Lounge.
