AKACASA Luxury Private Villa & Spa

In the heart of bustling Chiang Mai, is a sanctuary of serenity that has set a new standard in private villa exclusivity – AKACASA Luxury Private Villa & Spa.

Created by renowned architect and designer, Eakrit Pradistsuwana, AKA spa was, for many years, one of the city’s most exclusive spas. Set in a remodelled wooden and floor-to-ceiling glass house surrounded by giant rain trees and landscaped with beautiful water features and garden artscape Eakrit has recently upped the ante and converted his spa into an exclusive villa, aimed at offering its guests the ultimate in luxury and privacy escape.

Upon arrival, guests are taken to their large room, decorated in furniture, art and collectables hand picked by the owner and creator. The room features a king sized four poster bed, a surround sound stereo system with selection of CDs and a large flat screen television which swivels towards the bed as well as the day bed lounge area, along with a selection of DVDs. The piece de résistance, however, is the private garden which opens from the main bedroom to include a non-chlorinated infinity edge plunge pool, and spa facilities such as the open air Jacuzzi bath (romantically lighting up in different colours, perfect for a late night dip with your special someone), a steam room and a semi-outdoor shower and bathroom. Everything surrounded by a wall offering absolute privacy.

If one can leave the room, it is so seductive it may be hard to, then the entire house and all of its facilities are at the guests’ disposal. The large lobby/living area contains pieces of antiques and other object d’art, scattered around comfortable sofa and day bed areas. A dining room _ again offering amenities such as CD player, a large wet bar, sofas, dining table and coffee table _ offers guests a great place to entertain, and on a beautiful night opens straight out to a courtyard cooled by large fans, amid glittering candle light.

The acclaimed spa is now available only to the guests of the villa and well appointed spa rooms upstairs offer the entire range of treatments AKA has long been famous for. Each guest receives two hours complimentary massage per day.

Simply call for the personal butler any time of day and night and your wish is his command. AKACASA’s staff aim to cater to every whim of the guests, whether they wish to hide away and revel in their privacy, or invite friends over for a visit, Eakrit wishes guests to feel as though the house and staff are at the guests’ disposal for the duration.

AKACASA is a couples’ villa, with only one master bedroom, though an upstairs bedroom is provided for two extra guests. Perfect for visitors to Chiang Mai who wish to explore the city while retreating to their very own private and luxurious house at the end of the day, for residents looking for a romantic city break from home, for honeymooning couples, or as a base to stay during a wedding party, AKACASA simply offers a unique experience for its exclusive guests.
