Good grief, this hotel was spectacular. A small luxury boutique hotel that delivered like no other. I've stayed in luxury hotels around the world, and this ranks in my top 3! With full day tours planned each day, 137 Pillars House was just what you wanted to come "home" to at the end of a long and tiring day. The... More

We came to Thailand on our honeymoon and 137 Pillars did not disappoint. From the time we arrived the staff was overwhelmingly pleasant and seemed to truly care about our experience. The rooms were large, comfortable, and well decorated. We were initially placed in an East Borneo suite but moved to a William Bain Terrace suite when it became available.... More

From the onset, 137 Pillars House was spectacular and accommodating. From the charming colonial design details to the staff, my husband were repeatedly impressed. We were welcomed with Butterfly Pea flower iced tea and cool scented towels and given a lovely tour of the grounds. Our room was not yet ready (showed up early) but the concierge took care of...

We recently stayed in the 137 Pillars House in Chiang Mai. It was our favorite hotel on our 2 1/2 week trip to Myanmar and northern Thailand. The rooms are very comfortable and large and have separate rooms for the sink and closet and the shower and bathroom. There is also an outdoor shower. The hotel is located just east... More

In middle of Chiang Mai, just across Mae Ping River from old city, this resort offers uber comfort and service, with a butler, full of excellent suggestions. We used it more as a launching pad for exploring but had a beautiful lap pool with massive, ivy accent wall. Location excellent as walked to dinner along the river half the time.... More

This is one of the nicest and most elegant places I have stayed. It consists of a greatly expanded beautiful house with lovely large bedrooms and baths. A little oasis in the middle of the city. Fine food and service.

We stayed at the 137 Pillars House in January. The hotel is absolutely gorgeous! Feels like an oasis when you arrive. The room was gorgeous and the service is immaculate. We used the Spa once during the visit and it was lovely. The massage was probably one of the best I've ever had anywhere. The only disappointment was the restaurant.... More
