 |  September 30, 2009

Kantary Hills, part of the Kantary Group of hotels and serviced apartments, has for some time been a well established name in the hospitality business throughout Thailand. Sister companies, Cape Hotel Group and Kameo Hotel Group, have also become names lauded over by those who have experienced their unmatchable quality of comfort and service. With locations in the most desirable of Thailand’s hot spots, the three groups, owned by Kesemkij Company Limited, can make your stay a pleasurable one whether your option be sea and sand, the big city, or at the foot of verdant mountain ranges.

There are three types of rooms at Kantary Hills: the studio, one bedroom and two bedroom apartment. Each comes with its own balcony, off set from patio doors with mosquito screens. The studio room comes with one widescreen LCD TV _ the larger apartments have a TV in every room. The spacious bathrooms all have separate showers and bathtubs while the larger rooms have both en-suite and shared toilet facilities. The modern contemporary design of the rooms, based on the idea of a home away from home, affords the guest the opportunity to never have to leave the confines of their apartment. Each room is also equipped with refrigerator, stoves, microwave, toaster, utensils, chinaware, washing machine, internet, cable/satellite TV, entertainment system, full range of linen, towels, and safe. Additional services include a full housekeeping service, security, maid service, limousine service, in-house convenience store, free wi-fi in public areas, 24 hour office and concierge.

The roof top infinity edge swimming pool is a great place for an afternoon dip or a nighttime cocktail, while guests can also relax in the Jacuzzi, sauna, steam room or work out with trained staff in the fitness gym. All guests are welcome into the Business Centre where complimentary coffee, tea, cold drinks and snacks are available throughout the day, as well as a photocopying service, fax service, email and a selection of daily international newspapers. Corporate guests may also use the meetings and functions rooms, the largest can accommodate up to 250 guests and is appointed with the latest in audio visual equipment with trained staff on offer to make your business meetings run smoothly. The rooms are also available for functions, banquets and parties.

For the gastronomes, the foodies and the merely hungry, one of Chiang Mai’s most sophisticated restaurants, Nimman Bar and Grill, serves up a storm with impeccable steaks, mouthwatering pizzas, and many other international and Thai dishes. Directly opposite Nimman Bar and Grill is the new Nimman Bakery, ensconced next to the Business Centre this haven of sweet treats will have taste buds flowering in winter with its gentle pastries, potent Italian ice cream and sumptuous cakes. If that isn’t tempting enough, try their daily baked fresh breads and croissants, which you can have sent to your room each morning, still warm from the oven, along with a pot of fresh coffee. If you do decide to leave the comfort of your room to shop, to eat, to stroll, then don’t forget to take your room key because Kantary Hills has an exclusive arrangement with many of the street’s businesses that are offering startling discounts. A booklet is placed in each room with various offers.

Amidst traditional Lanna architecture and contemporary styles, where modern minimalist meets the very latest in technology, let Kantary Hills sweep you off your feet and give you the best home away from home you’ve ever had.
