Absolutely idyllic resort. Not too big and not too small. Was like a honeymoon retreat. We went as a group of 3 friends and all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. 5 star all the way. The service could not be faulted. Would definitely stay there again without hesitation.

Lovely time at this oasis of a hotel. Friendly, attentive staff and service. The hotel itself is beautiful with the restaurant, club room and lounge in a handsomely restored teak wood house with a gracious, colonial Britain feel. The rest of the property is immaculately landscaped and the rooms are spacious and well appointed. Highly recommended.

Very good atmosphere, In-room welcome scene make me feel worm and like home. Very like a green wall, garden tree surrounding... The building style and how to keep it as original, I really like. Lastly.. should consider to take the condition that reviews must be at least 200 characters out and you will see more comment/review/feedback.

We arrived on April 19th and stayed here for 2 nights. It was the perfect hotel for what we wanted. We had just come from Cambodia and were really excited to start are Thailand adventure. The property was so inviting as soon as we checked in. We were greeted with the smell of orchids and a welcoming staff. The grounds... More

Staying at the 137 Pillars in Chiang Mai was an absolute pleasure. We were picked up from the airport and driven to the Hotel but if we had to have found it ourselves it would have been difficult as it is a bit hidden, this is probably part of its charm. The rooms are delightful and the standards of cleanliness... More

Dear Madam, Thank you very much indeed for your kind comments about your recent stay. I'm glad to hear that we could meet your and your husband's expectations, and that Toto was able to provide that touch of extra service. It may be hard to believe, but he is not even 6 months in his current position of a Butller.... More

137 Pillars is one of if not the very nicest properties we've stayed in all of our travels. Tops in all aspects and the entire staff was so friendly and bent over backwards to make our stay enjoyable. We give 137 Pillars our highest recommendation.

We stayed 3 nights with American Express promotion. It was a really relaxing and comfortable experience to stay. The facilities were excellent; they provide us detailed information when needed; Some of the services are very considerate (e.g., Insect repellent, story before bed). After staying in 137, you will surely know why it ranks top in Chiang Mai across most hotel... More

We stayed here for 4 nights -- what a special place! We absolutely loved the vibe. The grounds and teak buildings and colonial touches truly took you took to another place. The room was spacious and very well appointed, the personal patio was huge and inviting, the staff was so friendly and welcoming, and the pool exceeded our expectations --... More

Other reviews have already covered the amazingness that this hotel is. Excellent spa, service, etc, but the visual aspect is incredible. Reception, the rooms, the restaurant, the pool area... it is so beautiful and has so much personality, such a huge difference from one of the big chains. Stay here (if you can afford it :-D) Remember than in SLH... More
