City7: V-Day Getaways

01 Sukantara Cascade Resort

Layers of cascading waterfalls, fall-side spa for him and her in tandem, cosy nooks to canoodle in and private dining not near but ON the Taad Yao waterfall in Mae Rim.

02 Fern Paradise

Snuggle up in your own private rice barn at this Sansai hideaway and make out discreetly amidst a rather impressive number of ferns.

03 Khun Chang Kian

Live your Valentine dreams amidst a pink sea of seasonal sakura blossoms at this mountainside vista, which is just past Doi Suthep on the way to Doi Pui. You can pitch your own tent for 100 baht or rent a house at 600 baht a night.

04 Horizon Village & Resort

Located inside the sprawling Tweechol Botanical Gardens (where, if all else fails, you can get kissed by a camel), this opulent poolside resort even offers hot air balloon rides. Très romantique!

05 Samoeng Loop

Adventurous twosomes can spend a weekend whizzing through the mountains, stopping at cute roadside B&Bs and sampling locally-grown strawberries. You can even attempt to recreate your own Kim and Kanye moment, but we relinquish any responsibility for the results. 

For maps:

06 Chiang Dao Nest

Think flickering campfires, cosy cottages, kissing under the stars, romantic walks hand in hand (mind the goats), mouth-watering food and surprisingly reasonable prices to boot.

07 Le Meridien Chiang Rai

For those who relish luxury, the riverside infinity pool surrounded by sweeping rain trees is a romantic dreamscape, with fine dining and boat rides a deux down the Mae Kok. And the beds are some of the best in Thailand… just sayin’…
