The beauty of Chiang Mai city is the easy access to foothills, mountains, waterfalls, and rice farms that are only minutes from the old city. This new resort is 25 minutes into the hill country and lays above the lovely Thai village, fruit orchards, and rice farms below it. The rural mountain views are spectacular and reminscent of upcountry Bali.
The resort must be on more than 50 acres and you feel like you have it all to your self as it is so new; they had an opening party while we were there and the rooms were discounted. There were 2 swimming pools, a realy nice steam room, massage salas, an excersize walking trail and numerous other buildings. The "Radiance Restaurant" is very good but the menu is limited compared to the fabulous restaurant they operate At Spa Samui on Lamai beach. I only had time for a 3 day cleanse fast which they discuss here under fasting programs:
It's a refreshing thing to do for your body and you feel better after a stay here.
The staff is sweet and usually smiling. The service was slow; I think the staff needs time to learn to operate; the scale of the place is so overwhelming. This resort is very close to the Mae Sae Valley loop road which has waterfalls, the Queen Sirikit Botanical Gardens, Mae Sae Valley Elephant camp, and lots of other sites to see. A trip up to Doi Suthep mountain top is also a must.
The rooms are lovely; we stayed around the larger pool by the hotel. They also have 2 story bungalow houses and full size homes for rent but these were out of our budget. The pool rooms were good size and fine for our small family of 3. There was wireless internet available everywhere; many beautifull open buildings to lie around in and enjoy the peace, views, birds, and sounds around you.
This is a nice one!
