Review

The Four Seasons Chiang Mai is located in Mae Rim, forty minutes from the city of Chiang Mai, where the urban center recedes to rice fields and country paths wind up into the Himalayan foothills. The property is very lush, with landscaped rice paddies in all directions. Each evening around sunset, the staff spends three hours lighting 150 torches scattered among the terraced rice fields. Adding to this nighttime ambiance is a chorus of cicadas and croaking bullfrogs.

The resort features charming, if unexpected species of local life and activity. For example, your visit will surely include an encounter with a few beasts of burden tending to their afternoon chores. Two one-ton water buffalos, known as Mr. Tong and his Stepbrother, roam the property with their shepherd, munching on grass and curiously interacting with passersby. A peaceful replacement for the rowdy engines of tractors and weed-wackers that typically provide background noise at sprawling resorts.

The property features 64 pavilions, 12 pool villas, 17 residences and 5 residence villas—all with ample private outdoor space. Décor throughout the property includes a brown color scheme with gold accents, teak wood floors, vaulted ceilings, and original Thai art. Many of the villas and residences have private pools, which guests can enjoy in addition to the two main pools built into the rice fields.

Both on and off-property, you’ll find plenty to occupy your time. Start with a breakfast bike around the country roads, stopping off at a local coffee shop. Have a relaxing afternoon by the pool or take a cooking class, and end your day with sunset cocktails. Retire early for another day exploring the region at a nearby elephant camp, hiking to hill tribe stations, touring the temples of Chiang Mai, or shopping among the hip boutiques of Nimmanhaemin Road.

As one comes to expect in Thailand, the service is impeccable. But Four Seasons takes it the extra mile, providing their staff with regular English classes to constantly improve their language skills. Guests will see the same familiar faces assisting in the Cooking School as they do at breakfast, which supports a warm familiarity even if you’re staying for a short time.

Who Should Stay

Couples seeking a romantic retreat not too far from town and families wishing to frolic among the rice paddies will be fulfilled by the exotic surroundings, excellent service and ease of access at this remote yet accessible resort.
