Twenty minutes north of Chiang Mai, this exotic Northern Thai styled resort offers a peaceful place from which to explore the region's treats.
Set in a horseshoe shape around landscaped terraces, the Pavilions are the perfect place to admire the lily ponds, green rice fields and slate mountains on the horizon. You may prefer to stay in an impressive Resort Residence, located in spacious, turreted villas based on the design of a local temple.
The nearby shopping paradise of Chiang Mai awaits, or visit the temples of the ancient Lanna Kingdom or meander through jungle creeks on an elephant trek, returning on a river raft complete with a Four Seasons picnic hamper.
Back at the resort, indulge in a spa treatment before heading to dinner. Sample Phad Thai, a stir-fry noodle dish with prawns, bean sprouts and peanuts, served by wonderfully hospitable staff. A magical resort.
