An enchanting sanctuary in an ancient Thai city
Chiang Mai is a vibrant city with a myriad of seductive attractions. You choose to stay at Shangri-La Hotel, Chiang Mai, as it is conveniently located within the bustling centre of this culturally rich city.
You head to Pool Bar for a quiet drink. Time stands still as you watch the sun set, the fiery ball of red dipping down into the mountains. This is a moment you’ll want to savour for a lifetime.
You start the day by taking a rickshaw ride down the small quiet lanes within the old town. You explore the many curio and antique shops nestled in teakwood houses. You also enjoy wandering around shady tree-lined lanes that lead to numerous Thai Buddhist temples. Afternoon arrives, and you hop on an elephant’s back on a trek up the rolling mountains.
You have thoroughly enjoyed your Chiang Mai excursions and you return to your room to rest. Your suite is beautifully appointed in a contemporary Northern Thai style. The luxurious bedroom is cosy with plenty of throw pillows and mood lighting, including a daybed, ideal for quiet moments of relaxation. Special touches such as local celadon tea sets, Thai silk pillows, bed runners and artwork give the area a distinctive Chiang Mai charm.
After a short snooze, it’s time for dinner. You head to Kad Kafé, which is named after the local word for “market”. There you find a delicious international spread that includes Thai, Chinese, Japanese, European and Mediterranean specialties.
To spice up your meal and wake up your taste buds, visit China Kitchen for an authentic Szechuan dining experience. Our team of chefs is lead by Chen from Szechuan province, who masterfully combines the richness of traditional flavours and modern techniques to elevate the taste of traditional Szechuan spiciness.
Now that you’re well-fed, you make your way to CHI, The Spa at Shangri-La, for some pampering. You indulge in a traditional Thai massage. The combination of gentle rocking, deep stretching movements and compression of the spine energizes yet relaxes you.
The day’s memories flow through your mind and you feel a deep sense of peace. Here in your own haven within the city. Here at Shangri-La Hotel, Chiang Mai.
