WHY WE LOVE THIS HOTEL

Immersive Experience: With great food, incredible scenery, and rejuvenating spa treatments, the absence of television only heightens the experience, engendering a chance at full mental relaxation.

Story: This family-owned resort originated from the inspiration of leading Thai interior designer M.L. Sudavdee Kriangkrai, who wanted to produce a holiday haven for weary urban dwellers. The result of her efforts is a truly one-of-a-kind boutique hotel.

Scenery: The lush valleys and misty mountains of Northern Thailand create a dreamlike landscape perfect for those wanting to get away, and the resort complements the beauty of its natural surroundings with its comfortable terraces and indulgent spa.

DETAILED DECRIPTION

Situated in a remote region of Chiang Rai, the most northern province of Thailand, the Phu Chaisai Resort & Spa is constructed along a hillside and boasts stunning, unobstructed views of the lush valley that lies before it, as well as the mountains beyond. The 324-hectare estate features wonderfully designed bamboo cottages. Televisions were intentionally left out of the equation, encouraging guests to fully take in the vistas offered by their private terraces. Still, such modern amenities as air-conditioning and tea and coffeemakers are included to ensure optimal experiences. Upgraded rooms feature more space and private bathtubs, and there are even cottages available with their own private plunge pools and outdoor bathtubs. In terms of dining, the resort's sole restaurant serves local and international dishes prepared with the freshest, locally sourced ingredients, and there is a chic infinity pool surrounding by loungers where guests can soak in the sun as they enjoy a cocktail. The spa is a highlight. It offers a variety of traditional treatments, which are administered in relaxed healing spaces. There are also cooking classes, private yoga sessions, and a variety of excursions throughout the local area are available.
