Taking its inspiration from the teak boom in Chiang Mai in the late 19th century, this award-winning boutique property has an elegant colonial design, with delicately carved woodwork around the eaves and balconies. The theme continues in the rooms, where antique telephones, wrought iron beds, fans, and fine carpets hark back to another era. The essential fixtures and fittings, however, are thoroughly modern. All 19 rooms are named after different Thai flowers and are individually decorated, giving each a separate identity. Hotel facilities include an infinity pool, an Ayurvedic spa, a small but smart restaurant, and a cozy library. The high staff to guest ratio guarantees prompt and attentive service.
