Hidden in the alley central Chiangmai this upper end hotel with a huge beautiful classic teak house as main attraction serves coffee with tasty lemon tarts. Nice design buildings, and lovely gardens with huge trees makes this hotel a great place to hold small weddings. Recommended.

Paradise Found
Reviewed 2 days ago

This resort is by far one of the best vacation experiences I have ever had. The grounds of the resort are immaculate and you feel like you are in a hidden tropical paradise hidden in the middle of Chiang Mai.

My husband and I spent fours days here and can’t wait to come back. The rooms were beautiful and we used our private outdoor shower everyday. We loved sitting on our own private patio and reading, or in the evening we would sit out there and listen to the piano being played in the main house. It was magical.

The staff is extemeky nice and accommodating. We were personally greeted at the airport by our personal butler, Pui. From there we are driven in a luxury vehicle to the resort. Pui got us checked in and gave us a tour of the grounds. When we made our way back to the room, she made sure that we had her number and that we wahould text her if we need anything. Pui made dinner reservations for us, coordinated travel, made sure our laundry was done and took such good care of all of our needs. Every staff member we saw was gracious, kind and extremely accommodating.

On our final day, we decided to get a massage. The on-site spa is luxurious and relaxing and it was honestly one of the best massages I’ve ever experienced.

If we could, we would pack up our lives and live at 137 Pillars forever. But since that is not a reality, we can’t wait until our next visit.

My husband and I recently stayed at 137 Pillars. It’s a beautiful hotel with a gorgeous pool. The grounds are a nice break from the hustle and bustle of the city. Our room was very nice and included a private patio as well as a private outdoor shower. Our Butler Pui was wonderful. She was exceptionally helpful and anticipated our needs even before we did. She was very helpful in locating restaurants that would suit our specialized diet. The hotel is very close to many attractions and getting around the city is very easy with tuk-tuks or cabs which are even cheaper. We would absolutely stay at 137 Pillars again.

Amazing hotel. Amazing service. Stay here!
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

My husband and I stayed here to start out our honeymoon in Thailand. We had an amazing time to say the least. The staff was beyond accommodating. They went out of their way to make us comfortable.

Pui was our personal concierge assistant and she was beyond helpful. I brought the wrong type of converter with me for my straightener and she made sure to have a new one in my room for me the same day, free of charge. S

The food was great. The breakfast was delicious! Try the green juice. If you have a chance, get a traditional Thai Massage. It was amazing.

The location was also close enough to walk to some cute coffee shops and restaurants.

Would highly recommend! We cannot say enough great things about this magical place.
