Overview

Located on the banks of the Ping River is the decidedly modern and luxurious Anantara Chiang Mai Resort in northern Thailand. Conveniently close to some of the city’s top attractions such as the old town and the lively Chiang Mai Night Bazaar, this high end property is also a haven of tranquility away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

All of the hotel’s 84 sumptuous rooms and suites are handsomely furnished and boast a full range of modern conveniences. The 52 Deluxe Rooms and 32 Kasara Suites all come with their own private balcony complete with daybed and gorgeous views of the hotel’s beautifully manicured gardens, the Colonial House or the Ping River. Floor-to-ceiling windows enhance the views, and local artefacts add character to the rooms. While the Deluxe Rooms offer plenty of space, the Kasara Suites are twice as large and come with their own separate dining area and a significantly larger bathroom.

Aside from exploring Chiang Mai’s temples, ruins, galleries, boutiques and cafes, there are plenty of nearby activities to enjoy such as golf, zip-lining and even white water rafting. Fruit carving classes, and yoga and tai chi sessions are on offer at the hotel, along with traditional Thai massage lessons. The state-of-the-art fitness centre is worth a visit, with a personal trainer on hand for tailored workouts and advice, and there’s also a 34-metre riverside pool and a lovely full-service spa.

Dining options at the hotel are plentiful and varied. Peruvian and Indian cuisine is on the menu at The Restaurant, while The Service 921 Restaurant and Bar offers Vietnamese, Chinese Szechuan and Thai food, and the Lobby Lounge offers light snacks and cocktails throughout the day. Afternoon tea is available and there’s a private lounge just for Kasara Suite guests. In-room dining is also possible and there’s a private, reservations-only restaurant serving both Thai and international cuisine.

Children are welcome at the resort. While there are no designated child activities, there is a babysitting service and the restaurant does offer a children’s menu. Families might prefer to book one of the Kasara Suites since they are significantly larger than the Deluxe Rooms and have plenty of space for extra beds and cots. Parents should note that the pool is more of a lap pool, but children are still free to use it if they wish.

  • Hello Lisa. We came back from our trip two weeks ago now so I am sending this email much later than I wanted to. Nevertheless, what I wanted to say was thank you very much for helping us organise an amazing trip. Our days in Mafia Island to celebrate my 50th birthday were exactly what I wanted them to be: a fantastic time with the family doing activities that we all love and enjoy in a relaxing, unusual, beautiful place full of sun, surrounded by water, wildlife and friendly people. We swam with whale sharks, did a lot of snorkeling, had two picnics on a beautiful sand bank, watched the sunset over the sea, did a bird watching excursion and tried scuba diving.
    All merit to you because Pole Pole in Mafia Island was your recommendation. I never heard of Mafia Island before and didn't consider Tanzania to start with. It was an amazing place to stay: friendly, relaxed, beautiful, comfortable, with great food and fantastic service. Thanks not only for finding the place but also for your patience as we prepared the trip and I explored options and decided what I wanted. All went incredibly well (places, transfers, flights) and we had a very memorable time together that we will all remember forever - as we still do the safari trip to South Africa you organised for us 5 years ago.
    I cannot wait to plan another trip! I am already thinking about where and when. Hopefully no pandemic will get in the way this time. And I will come to you as my favourite travel agent.
    I copy in this message the Tourdust office because I want them to know how good you are and how much I appreciated the different trips you organised for us (including the trip to India for my parents that was cancelled due to Covid). I cannot thank you enough :o)
    Kind regards, Carol

  • Hi Lisa
    It was a fantastic experience, thanks very much. All the arrangements were seamless and our guiding/support team were excellent, if there is a way for you to formally commend the team to your ground operators then I would be grateful if you could do that, they really were brilliant.
    Many thanks for your help in arranging the trip, and for your patience during the multiple re-arrangements over the past couple of years.
    Kind regards, John

  • Can't praise tour dust enough, they helped us to create a holiday of a lifetime that has given us family memories we will treasure forever. From start to finish the whole experience was exactly what we wanted and more. Due to covid we waited 2 and a half years for this trip but worth the wait.
