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
Stayed for one night in a double room with an added bed.
Room with a balcony having a great view of the greens. Our room was facing east so we could see sunrise.
Super spacious room as shown in room description. Super spacious bathroom too.
Wifi was good.
Resort was easy to be found with sufficient road signs. Road was not good but not really very bad as described by others.
There's a park with animals by Katiliya nearby but it seems to be still under construction.
There are local foods and market with around 10 mins drive down the hill, not really nothing to eat around. But if you have no car, it would be quite inconvenient.
Staff were nice but not a highlight.
Breakfast was with quite a variety, a little bit of this and a little bit of that.
A bat flew in front of us at night when we were chatting at the balcony. At around midnight when everybody's sleeping, there were something jumping or walking up on our roof which made a really loud noise. This is indeed a resort in nature.
Overall if you want to relax and enjoy some space and greens, stay here. If you want convenience, defintely not this one. I did enjoy my stay here.
We stayed here for one night and very much enjoyed the peace and tranquility of the location. A very spacious, comfortable room with a huge balcony overlooking the forest. We slept so well! The staff were friendly and helpful and took you to and from your room in a golf buggy. I loved the two outdoor pools, one which was heated. It’s in a remote location so we ate at the hotel restaurant. Very tasty food and excellent service although the portions were huge! We didn’t have a great deal of time for breakfast however from what we saw the choice was fairly limited.
Very big room with nice greenery view in Chiang Rai. The owner used very good material from day bed, bed, linen, toiletry. In winter, can sleep without air con and safe. Breakfast is very good. Dinner is done by good chef. Totally recommend
This is kind of a breathtaking resort well north of ChiangRai. The construction is just amazing - river stones, round and smooth, from the not-too-far away Mekong River are used throughout. The site is on a hill nestled in a valley with mountains all about. Dining facilities were good. (Bkfst included in room charge.) I spotted a couple of problems in our room and down by the pool. Maintenance was immediate and cheerfully done. Hotel (with advance booking) provided transportation to and from airport.
The only drawback was the road to the place - needed substantial repair and made going in and out for day trips a bit of an adventure...
Bottom line, we’ll stay again next time...
We stay there as the fourth stop in our northhailand trip for two days and it was amazing! The view from the balcony couldn‘t be better. The manager her name was Lisa care very lovely about us. She was showing us the hotel own park and give us cycles that we could drive through. Also she gave us spray against the mosquito. A very quiet place in the hills so you could relaxe and recover.
Thank you for all.
