Where to Stay in Mai Rim Valley

The Chiang Mai Four Seasons
December 10, 2018

Some people live paycheck to paycheck. But not you. You live vacation to vacation. And it’s prime time now to plan that December getaway. After all, when else can you unplug for a solid ten days, when even your boss isn’t working? We’re thinking somewhere warm. Far and exotic. Culture. Food. Hello Thailand. 

The Chiang Mai Four Seasons is where luxury and culture collide. The hotel is located in the surreally green and lush Mai Rim Valley. Even by Four Seasons standards, this is one of the most stunning locations in their portfolio. Quite honestly, they could pitch you a tent in the middle of the rice paddy set resort and it would still be one of the most beautifully placed hotels in the world. Luckily, there’s more than just basics, as is expected from the Four Seasons. Yet, with their signature impeccable service (amped up for Asia-level), one of the best cooking academies, and spas that alone make the destination worth the visit, they retain a cultural authenticity. Each evening, after a hard day’s work, the local farmers end their day with a ceremonial song outside your villa doors. Just don’t forget to say hello to Mr. Tong—the 15-year-old albino water buffalo and card-carrying employee (rumor has it that he even pays taxes).

So why would you ever choose between luxury and authenticity? At the Four Seasons Chiang Mai, you can have both.
