Anantara Resort

Chiang Mai - Thailand


Expertly channelling Chiang Mai’s chilled out vibes, this sleek riverside retreat ticks all the right boxes.

The hotel blends colonial charm with contemporary Thai design, centred around a beautiful 1920s building that once housed the British Consulate. The rooms are spacious and stylish, the food is fantastic and the spa is everything you’d expect from wellness experts Anantara.

You’ll be spoilt from the moment you arrive by the amazing staff, and it’s a great option for the discerning LGBT traveller. The location is another real selling point, within easy walking distance of the Old City but far enough out to ensure a peaceful and secluded ambience.

Nearby Attractions

The hotel’s own city tours are a great introduction to Chiang Mai, whizzing around in a tuk tuk with your expert guide and visiting sights such as the flower market and Chinatown. There is also a complimentary shuttle service to the Central Festival shopping mall, and you can round off the day with a romantic sunset river cruise.

Other nearby attractions include the beautiful mountain temple of Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep, a 40-minute drive from the hotel, and northern Thailand’s traditional hilltribe villages.

The beautiful riverside pool seems to blend seamlessly with the decorative ponds, and the gorgeous Anantara Spa includes a herbal steam room, sauna and rooftop relaxation deck. There is also a fitness centre and classes in everything from yoga and tai chi to massage, cookery and Thai boxing.
