Perfect idyllic retreat in busy Chaing Mai

Leicester, United Kingdom

This hotel is stunning - not just the architecture designed around the old British Consulate but the location on the banks of the river. It’s a great location for everything. The peace that descends as you walk through the entrance is fantastic. The staff are brilliant - courteous friendly and so helpful - they even remembered our names! Food is great and attention to detail brilliant. Can’t praise the hotel enough. Worth every penny!

Amazing Chiang Mai Experience

Los Angeles, California

Exquisite location and service was exceptional. Spa treatments were the best I've ever experienced!.Also wonderful food options. Would highly recommend for a special visit. Location was excellent for walking to town, markets, restaurants. Hotel staff was very helpful in picking out visits off site to the Kanta Elephant Sanctuary and A Day with the Karen Tribe.

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.
