A hidden gem in central Chiang Mai, the Banthai Village hotel is an urban haven of relaxation and comfort.
The Lanna-style architecture and comfortably minimalist décor of this 23-room property offer travelers a warm, sophisticated stay just steps away from the main sites of the city.
Taking cues from the classic Lanna architecture of Thailand's north, the Banthai Village hotel in Chiang Mai is a cluster of two storey buildings set around a leafy courtyard. With dark wood beams, stone tiles and traditional sloped roofs the beautiful exteriors give way to 23 spacious rooms with wood beamed-ceilings and private balconies. The decoration is clean and sleek, with fresh white linens accented by colorful Thai silks and wooden furnishings.
Guests can choose from four room types, all of which are non-smoking and include touches of luxury such as daily newspapers, wifi, a DVD player with a selection of movies, rain showers with bathtubs and plush bathrobes and slippers. The five suites boast a separate sitting room and unique flip door divides the room, rotating the television from the lounge to the bedroom.
Adding the substance behind the style at Banthai VIllage is the attentive personal service and a prime location. Whether dining in the open-air restaurant or soaking in the outdoor Jacuzzi, the friendly staff ensure guests' every whim is satisfied and those who want to explore the city will be delighted at the close proximity of the main sites and shopping areas.
Small, stylish and sophisticated Banthai Village offers a truly boutique stay- something that is often promised, but rarely delivered.
