Northern Charm in Chiang Mai

Resplendent and romantic all at once, Chiang Mai exudes an old-world charm, perhaps more so than anywhere else in Southeast Asia. Lanna temples and lush river-fed paddies create a majestic mosaic, and juxtaposed within this, is the luxuriant Four Seasons Resort Chiang Mai, offering its retreat-styled hospitality. The spaces reflect the style of the Lanna Kingdom, a historically significant period of Thai history, suggesting grandeur, yet built to blend in with nature. The Resort’s regal Private Retreats range from one- to four-bedroom and are enveloped within the lush tropical landscape and rice paddies. The luxurious residences intersect with landscaped outdoor areas and expansive private pools to deliver the ultimate getaway with loved ones. Guests staying at Four Seasons Resort Chiang Mai private residences may enjoy soothing spa treatments, signature afternoon tea, sunset cocktails at Ratree Bar, airport transfers and daily breakfast.

With the space, privacy, and familiar comforts of home, special amenities and services such as a personal attendant are available at the Resort’s Private Retreats. “We are offering special privileges including 30-minute extensions for all spa treatments, welcome cocktails, and much more for families staying at the residences with our Private Retreats – Reunite and Reconnect package,” shares Resort Manager Anthony Tschudin. 

Relish the moment by savouring sophisticated mixology cocktails at Ratree Bar during sundown. Delight in the culinary excellence of Khao by Four Seasons, a Michelin-guide restaurant, where guests can indulge in the region's signature dishes and experience the Thai hot pot with seasonal touches.

Ranging from two- to five-bedroom homes, they are ideal for multi-generational family vacations.

While lounging on the beach with a favourite cocktail in hand, guests can savour in Michelin’s guide Southern Thai cuisine at Koh Thai Kitchen, and enjoy a crafted Thai Tapas Pinto at Koh Bar, set against the Gulf of Thailand's stunning backdrop.
