Thailand is one of the most exotic and enchanting places on earth. With its beautiful beaches, ancient temples and the easygoing nature of the local Thai population, it is the perfect place to spend a holiday. As one of the largest and most culturally significant cities in Thailand is Chiang Mai. The city is the ideal place to relax and unwind, and there is no better place than at one of the many spa hotels in Chiang Mai.
Steeped in Buddhist philosophies, the Thai people understand relaxation better than anybody on earth does. As a result, spending a day, weekend, week or even a fortnight in a spa resort in Chiang Mai will make you feel like a new person. Spa hotels in Chiang Mai specialise in luxury Thai massage, ancient relaxation techniques and provide an oasis of calm compared to the hustle and bustle of the Chiang Mai streets.
Luxury resorts in Chiang Mai
Chiang Mai spa hotels take relaxation seriously, and from the moment you set foot inside you will feel all your tension and stress simply fade away. From the exotic incense to the specialist Thai massage, a spa hotel in Chiang Mai provides one of the most relaxing holidays imaginable, and as the city is at the cultural heart of Thailand, there is plenty to see and do in between massages and relaxation sessions.
You only have to set foot outside your luxury resort in Chiang Mai to become immersed in a culturally unique environment. From the frenetic city streets, where tuk-tuks (a type of three world taxi) zoom in an out of traffic, to the Buddhist monks in traditional dress chatting on their mobile phones, Chiang Mai is heady mix of culture, history and chaos.

Chiang Mai is a distinctly pretty city too. With so many ancient temples and shrines dotted about, it can be easy to forget you are in a bustling metropolis, visited by over 5 million tourists a year. However, if you are staying a in a Chiang Mai resort hotel, you have the perfect retreat to get away from the chaos of the busy streets, and just a few minutes in a Thai spa hotel will get you back to what the Buddhists refer to as a state of Zen.
Another great thing about spa hotels in Chiang Mai is the food. Thai cuisine is famous worldwide, and there is no better place to try authentic Thai food than in one of the luxury Chiang Mai hotels, where the chefs are some of the best Thai cooks in the country. With its ancient Buddhist history, buzzing nightlife and relaxing resorts, staying in a Chiang Mai spa hotel, is an experience you’ll never forget.
