The Mandarin Oriental, Dhara Dhevi Chiang Mai, Thailand
Guests who come here should be ready to face some of the best luxury features in the world. They will find accommodation inside private two-storey villas, colonial suites or signature, palatial residences, spread over landscaped gardens and rice paddy fields. Every accommodation facility comes with adjacent sitting areas, while some of them are even provided with private outdoor plunge pools.
Guests may wonder throughout Mandarin Oriental’s gardens during the evenings, while the hungry or culinary-curious ones may find out that the hotel’s eight restaurants and cafes are as exquisite as are their services tasty. For those who fancy privacy, a torch-lit barbecue wouldn’t be a bad idea at all. Especially if prepared by the chefs in their private villa.
There are also solutions for the romantic characters, in the shape of candle-lit dinners throughout the rice paddy fields. Children will definitely not know the meaning of boredom, while the hotel’s own cultural center is ready to provide guests with incursions into the traditions of Thailand.
All these and a lot more can be yours for nightly price tags starting at $505 (€402).
