5 Star Hotels in Chiang Mai

Tourism in Thailand's historic northern capital is growing fast, not only because accommodation at 5 star hotels in Chiang Mai often cost much less than in other large tourist destinations in the country, but also because its attractions lie in exactly that for which we embark on a trip to a foreign destination in the first place namely; to experience age old culture, captivating historical sights, exotic nature and in this case to also sample the best food in Thailand.

Few other places in the kingdom offer a glimpse into its bygone era and customs, or capture that famous Thai smiles and hospitality quite like here. In the tranquil Maerim Valley 30 minutes from the city centre is where you wake up to views across rice paddies and rain forest covered hills. Here, out of this world spa journeys can be enjoyed at 5 star resorts like Panviman and The Four Seasons, the latter offering a window into original northern Thai lifestyle and accommodation with an authentic touch.

In the city centre and Chiang Mai Old City a different experience await. While the Maerim Valley is undeniably romantic, luxury hotels on the river Ping are ideal if Thailand's northern rose is part of your honeymoon trip. In Old City where Chedi's and temples dot the streets and Tha Pae Gate which is the ancient entrance is still standing you can take rickshaw rides to historic sights and curio shops. Here top hotels like Le Meridien, Dusit D2 or Manathai offers luxury accommodation so near the night bazaar you can walk there. Our advice is to choose the best area to stay for you, then use our price comparison facility to find the best deals.
