A backdrop of Chiang Mai’s rich heritage and tranquil setting is perfect to get the holiday rolling at The Dhara Dhevi. An emblem of an uber luxe experience, while being wedged in the Thai countryside, the resort offers an exclusive tenor to the stay. The 60 acres of bright green paddy is dotted with wooden rice barns, ancient structures and colonial mansions. Within these are suites and rooms with chic contemporary décor, interiors and fittings, ensuring that the traveller gets the best of both worlds. In fact, the plunge pools and private decks are far from rustic.
Your wellness routine at the Dheva Spa is underlined with a fully equipped haven for rejuvenation and relaxation. An extensive list of dining options inside the resort leaves no cuisine out. Worldly pleasures are hard to evade, despite being in the heart of the countryside. One can stroll to Kad Dhara, an in-house colonial shopping village or hold meetings in grand conference settings. For the more active, there are cooking classes and a trip to a craft village. The evenings are reserved for local cultural performances or a romantic personal dinner with fine and a viewing deck.
