If you have guests coming to visit soon here are a few exciting new hotels that you could consider checking them into.
Stay with Nimman
If you have driven down Sirimangkalajarn Road recently, you can’t have missed the glitzy sight of this brand new hotel on the corner of Soi 5 Nimman. This Singapore-owned hotel has recently opened and features its own twist to the modern Lanna aesthetics…with a touch of Chinese bling! Façade aside, the selling point for this new property is simply location location location! It is a five minutes’ walk to the bustling Nimmanhaemin Road and a convenient one minute from the 24 hour transportation to be found on Huay Kaew Road, making it an enviable location from which to explore the city. Featured facilities include a rooftop pool and bar with 360 degrees of the city and the Doi Suthep skyline, a cigar room and a café that provides coffee consultant service which is planned to open later this month.

Wintree City Resort Chiang Mai
This city resort on the Superhighway is a very convenient and comfortable city getaway for those looking for ease of access, good service, stylish and cosy rooms and a breezy oasis to return to at the end of a busy day. The rooms are very well designed with uber comfy beds, spacious living areas, private balconies, large and well-appointed bathrooms and all the mod cons you come to expect from a quality hotel. Many of the rooms come with a balcony which opens up straight to the swimming pool, so you can wake up, roll out of bed and straight into the cool azure waters! There is an all day international dining restaurant as well as a fitness and business centre. If you are travelling as a family, you can stay in a duplex room where there is a special offer for all kids aged under 12 years old to stay for free and also have breakfast for no extra charge!
Chala No. 6
We think that this hotel has one of best views from any hotel room in the city, as it is located right across the road from Wat Chedi Luang. Imagine coming home from a day’s sightseeing, returning to your room for a sumptuous bath, after which you open the door to some room service and go sit on your balcony watching the sun set with a cold drink while enjoying the evening activities in Wat Phra Singh right in front of you. The hotel is designed in the distinctive contemporary Lanna design and encompasses a large courtyard where a pool is flanked by a carved rice barn serving afternoon tea to in-house as well as outside guests. Outside guests can also stop by the temple-facing Allway Café for all day dining and some great people watching. The menu covers hot and cold drinks, and many one-dish Thai and international favourites.
Prapokklao Road (Opposite Wat Chedi Luang)
