WHY WE LOVE THIS HOTEL

Spectacle: With huge, beautifully-landscaped grounds that span over 60 acres, the Dhara Dhevi is an opulent world unto itself, incorporating green rice paddies, pavilions and glittering Buddhist prayer rooms

Pool: Swim in its large outdoor pool with horizontal palm trees.

Decor: Stay in its gorgeous, two-story colonial style suites with private pools and sumptuous Thai décor.

DETAILED DECRIPTION

A successful truck dealer with a taste for art, Suchet Suwanmongkol underwrote the $75-million dream of a young, unknown architect to build an ancient Asian city within the confines of Chiang Mai. The resulting 60-acre confection from the now-famous Rachen Intawong includes 142 suites decorated in a colonial mansion style, and individual villas built in various Thai vernaculars. At the heart of the resort is the sumptuous Dheva Spa, a multi-tiered Xanadu with 18 treatment rooms and five residences. Throughout, the bedrooms are huge: 16-foot ceilings are the norm in the colonial wing, as are private verandas and adjoining living rooms, all lavishly fitted with silk-covered chaise lounges and hill-tribe textiles. Superlatives extend to the two pools (enormous) and library (more than 5,000 books and 1,500 DVDs). Kids can also plant rice.
