The Best Luxury Hotels in Chiang Mai all have a certain charismatic air, a delightful sense of place, top-notch service and, in some cases, design by award-winning architects which all combine to redefine the Chiang Mai luxury hotel experience.
This is one of the few cities in Thailand where global hotel brands stand alongside independently run local boutique hotels and our Top 10 Luxury Hotels in Chiang Mai listings honour both. Our handpicked hotels are all located around Chiang Mai’s most popular spots, including the historic Old City, picturesque Riverside area and lively Night Bazaar area. We’ve also included a few hotels situated slightly out of town that enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the countryside, yet are close enough to the city centre to not feel like you’re complete isolated.
