If you want to stay in one of the world’s best hotels, the annual Conde Nast Traveler Gold List is one of the best places to find such a hotel. This year, four hotels from Thailand were included on the list. One is in the capital Bangkok, one on the island of Phuket in southern Thailand, and two in Thailand’s northern cities of Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai. If you’re planning to visit Thailand and want to stay in one of the best hotels, then give one of these a try.
The Dhara Dhevi Hotel, Chiang Mai
The Dhara Dhevi Hotel is a superb place to stay if you’re heading to Thailand’s popular northern city of Chiang Mai. One of the main features of the hotel is the Dheva Spa and Wellness Center, which is often described as a fairly tale come true. The spa includes a range of international treatments such as an Ayurvedic program, Chinese reflexology sessions, yoga, meditation and other traditional spa treatments.
Four Seasons Tented Camp Golden Triangle, Chiang Rai
The Four Seasons Tented Camp Golden Triangle in Chiang Rai is located on a jungle hilltop next to the Mekong River. It has views looking towards Thailand, Laos and Myanmar. The hotel has 15 rooms and is an ideal place to stay for relaxation or to indulge in one of the many activities. These include Thai cooking classes and elephant trekking.
Trisara Phuket Villas & Residences, Phuket
If you’re a beach person, then this secluded hideaway is the place for you. Set on a hillside among banana and coconut trees, every room and villa has unobstructed views of the beautiful Andaman Sea. If you’re feeling energetic, you have a choice of water sports, tennis, golf and more. If you prefer to relax, just lie on one of the daybeds that are scattered around this spectacular resort.
Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Bangkok
The Mandarin Oriental is Thailand’s oldest hotel and considered by many to be its best. It’s located on the bank of the mighty Chao Phraya River, from where it’s easy to visit many of Bangkok’s main attractions. The sheets on the bed are made from silk. This will ensure not only a great night’s sleep but also that you feel like a VIP. If you ever have the chance to stay here, make sure you do.
