Four Seasons Chiang Mai - Chiang Mai, Thailand | Hotel Review

5 Star Luxury Hotel with True 5 Star Service


Four Seasons Chiang Mai, Thailand: The resort is located about 40 minutes from the Chiang Mai International Airport but we decided to take a car from the Four Seasons - Golden Triangle so we could see more of the Thailand countryside. Normally it would take about four hours; however we took our time, did a lot of sight-seeing and with a long picnic lunch, turned it into an 8-hour drive. Whether you arrive by plane or by car, you will be happy to arrive at the Four Seasons Chiang Mai; it is a beautiful and relaxing resort.

First Impression: Even though it is a mid-sized resort (64 pavilions), it still had a very quiet and intimate feeling. Upon our arrival, the staff greeted us, giving us jasmine leis, a wet towel to refresh ourselves, fruit juice to quench our thirsts and a very warm welcome, making us feel like we just arrived home.

Reception: After a short welcome in the lobby, we were taken by buggy to our pavilion. In the pavilion, we got a quick tour of the room, completed paperwork and check-in was complete.

The Room: Pavilion 1204 was to be our home for the next few days. It was a King, Rice Terrace View Pavilion. Because it was located in the top level of last grouping (the pavilions are grouped in fours, two upper, two lower) of pavilions, we had more privacy than most other pavilions, and I think one of the best views on the property.

The room itself was fairly standard; a king-sized bed, desk and chair, two side chairs and a small end table. The bathroom had twin basin sinks, stand-alone shower, huge soaking tub (but not much a view) and private toilet.

Two negatives of the bathroom were there was not a good place for luggage so the suitcases ended up inconveniently placed in the middle of the room and the view from the bathtub was just a tiny, fenced in area.

Outside was the crowning glory of the pavilion, the verandah. Situated out from the pavilion sat the verandah, a covered patio, complete with dining table and four chairs plus a lounge couch, perfect for relaxing and taking in the breathtaking views of the rice paddies, and listening to the chirping and singing of the birds around you. I could have spent hours just lying there, absorbing the tranquility of the moment, but with two beautiful pools beckoning me, there was much more to do.

Room Service: The room service menu was very typical for the Four Seasons but they had a good selection of Thai dishes. Placing an order was easy, delivery was prompt and the order was accurate; Four Seasons perfection!

Housekeeping: Again, Four Seasons perfection.

Concierge: Upon our arrival, the concierge met us and had a packet of information on the hotel's services and suggested tours for us. We had requested this in advance, so I do not think they typically greet you upon arrival with this, but I am sure with one call to the concierge, they could provide the information quickly and easily. The concierge was knowledgeable and attentive. I have found the Four Seasons' concierges are among the best.

Services and Activities: The hotel has two beautiful pools. The main pool is a 66-foot pool offering beautiful views of the rice terraces and the Mae Rim Valley behind them. Below the main pool is the adults-only pool with views just a stunning.

Restaurant: Sala Mae Rim is the Thai restaurant offering a great variety of Thai cuisine with both indoor and outdoor seating. The food at Sala Mai Rim was some of the best I had in Thailand, true five-star quality. Terraces is the main restaurant, located near the main pool. It offers international cuisine as well as the morning breakfast buffet. Here too, the food was very impressive. Service at lunchtime was a bit scattered but the view and atmosphere more than made up for that.

Overall Impression: Four Seasons Chaing Mai, Thailand is definitely a place I am happy I visited and is definitely a place I would recommend others to visit. If you are in need of relaxation and a beach is not important, then this is the place.
