Howie's Homestay

Talk about exclusive: this luxury boutique villa is only offered to one group at a time, ensuring complete privacy, comfort, and care. Nestled in the foothills of the Himalaya Mountains, the hotel sprawls over four acres of lush green space, magnificent gardens, and a trickling river. Seven residential pavilions dot the property, designed with custom-crafted bronze details, golden teakwood floors, and handcrafted furniture that complements the soothing landscape of Northern Thailand. Guests can spend their days relaxing by the outdoor pool or take part in a variety of local activities such as a visit to the Doi Suthep National Park, a trek through a local rainforest or even an adventurous afternoon of bamboo rafting. As well, luxury spas and top-rated golf courses are located nearby for those looking to indulge in a Thai massage or a round of 18 holes before returning to the hotel for traditional, authentic meals.

Why We Love This Hotel

Location: Located in the tranquil Mae Sa Valley, Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand, this hotel is a half hour away from the airport and the shopping and dining of the city - the perfect little hideaway with easy access to everything guests could need.

Service: As there is never more than one group at this hotel at a time, guests benefit from the undivided attention and service of their hosts, with three meals served daily, airport pick-up and drop-off, laundry service, and on-call assistance.

History: Howie’s Homestay has been featured in over 20 luxury, travel and architecture magazines, including Architectural Digest, Conde Nast, and Hello Magazine.
