Thai oasis in Chiang Mai
A hidden retreat set into a lush, leafy garden, Villa Mahabhirom is a true oasis in the midst of bustling Chiang Mai. Conceived by three friends who shared a passion for Thai art, history and heritage, the hotel consists of 14 antique teak houses that were salvaged from central Thailand, rebuilt in Chiang Mai, and retro-fitted to suit modern lifestyles.
Raised on stilts with gabled roofs and handmade clay tiles, each villa features an open-to-the-elements living room on the ground level with a bedroom, marble bathroom and study area above, all decorated with a blend of antique furniture, local sculptures and contemporary artworks from the owners’ private collection.
Delectable home-cooked Thai meals, snacks and cocktails are served throughout the day and customised tours to private galleries, organic tea plantations, elephant sanctuaries and more are just a request away.
