Perfect

Bangkok, Thailand

We drove up to Chiang Mai for some urgent business and booked the room at 7pm. We've arrived the hotel at 9pm and our room was meticulously prepared. The room was well appointed with luxurious beddings, large toilet with strong shower heads and a large soaking tub. The bed was plush and comfortable and the room js extremely well kept and furnished. Housekeeping does a really good job here! Room Service delivers an exceptionally prepared meal and Breakfast is simply excellent with lots of choices and great service from the staff. The hotel ground is well manicured and reflects the high standards of the hotel. Only comment is that the hotel should not allow guests to walk in the internal courtyard as it is an invasion of privacy for other guests. Also since the hotel is quite enclosed and secluded, there should be signs posted for guests to keep their noise down and be considerate for other guests as people can be quite loud from their balconies. Anantara has been our favorite hotel in Chiang Mai and we couldnt wait to be back.

Wonderful vacation

Frederick, Maryland

We spent 2 nights at Anantara Chiang Mai and wished we would have had more time. It is a beautiful resort, very calming and quiet but still in walking distance to town to experience the temples and the many restaurants and sights

Food & Drink

The Service 1921

Here is a unique and rather eccentric dining experience not to be missed. The Service 1921 takes you to a fictitious reinvention of the British government’s secret intelligence service. The interiors are dark and dramatic, full of subtle twists and turns. Be sure to pay a visit to The Interrogation Room and look for the secret door in the library wall leading to the private dining area. The menu is a beautiful blend of contemporary Thai, Chinese and Vietnamese dishes, and the drinks menu is extensive and as intriguing as the restaurant itself.
