With panoramic views of the verdant forests in Thailand’s remote Golden Triangle—where it meets Laos and Burma—Katiliya is an extremely comfortable base for exploring Lanna (northern Thai) culture; 800-year-old ruins from that ancient civilization dot the region. There’s an outdoor pool with cushioned loungers, Jacuzzis, a library, and the full-service Katiliya Adventure Club, which arranges excursions in the area. The dining choices are varied, from northern Thai cuisine in the romantic Baan Thai Restaurant to the tapas menu, single malt whiskeys and cigars at the Fireplace Bar.
In the Area
Nearby Doi Luang National Park encompasses more than 450 square miles and is home to more than 89 species of birds and 12 types of mammals including wild pigs and barking deer. The village of Mae Salong, also known as Santi Khiri (Village of Peace), is sometimes referred to as Little Switzerland for its enchanting mountain scenery and trekking opportunities; tea and Chinese herbs are cultivated here. For those interested in something stronger (learning about it, not partaking), the Hall of Opium offers insights into the history of the drug’s cultivation and use.
How to Get There
Its a great for someone who is looking for a peaceful day, doing meditation and enjoy the beauty of nature. Excellent breakfast with a mountain view that every traveler will enjoy. The room is huge and the balcony is bigger than your expectation.
Stayed here for a birthday getaway. Large attractive rooms and large bathroom with soaking tub. Great pool and fitness center with good equipment. Wonderful staff and restaurant food very good at reasonable price for a resort. Best feature is private park with bicycle and hiking trails. Good location to drive to regional attractions most within 90 minutes. Only slight caution is the resort is laid out on a ridge so lots of steps and sloping walkways, perhaps not best for mobility impaired. Will stay again absolutely.
In the middle of nature you will find your peace for relaxation as you always wanted it. Rich breakfast offers an ideal start into your day which may end with one of the many excellent menues for dinner. Enjoy a swim in the pool or just relax inbetween at the whirlpool!
