A peaceful retreat in the hills above Chiang Mai blending traditional Thai motifs with a contemporary feel
Veranda, set on valley slope just outside of historic Chiang Mai, offers 80 rooms with tremendous views over a mountain landscape of meandering streams, rice, and tea terraces. The rooms vary greatly, covering seven categories, but all have sleek furnishings, cushy duvets, big bathrooms, and private balconies with inviting daybeds. The spa offers signature treatments using products that were developed in-house, and the two restaurants offer European and local Lanna Thai fare, both with a choice of air-conditioned indoor or breeze-cooled outdoor seating with views of the infinity pool and the valley beyond.
In the Area
Although the Veranda is outside the city and relatively far from its temples, museums, restaurants and other attractions, it’s close to Wat Pra That Doi Suthep, a temple on a hill about ten miles from the city, and Wat Umong, another beautiful 700-year-old temple. It’s also very convenient for the Chiang Mai Night Safari, which offers after-dark tram rides though animal parks, and the riotously colorful botanical gardens of Royal Park Rajapruek. A trip into the city itself should include a stop at the Chiang Mai City Arts & Cultural Centre, the modern city’s premier museum.
