Chiang Mai’s Raya Heritage, as its sister hotel Rayavadee Krabi, is an elegant and luxurious hotel known for its style, décor, location and consistently high standards.
Set on a quiet and lush green stretch of the Ping River in Don Kaew, Raya Heritage is not just a resort, but also a destination for foodies. Their Khu Khao Restaurant serves up ‘Asian Crossroads’ cuisine all day and they now also offer up a lovely afternoon tea where you can sit, sip and simply while away your time gazing at the Ping River.
Breathe in the wonderful aromas of the Cha Payom with honey, where tea is made from the flowers of the deciduous Payom tree which blooms only once a year in the north and are valued for their distinctive, fragrant smell. Once dried, they are perfect for brewing a refreshing pick-me-up pot of tea served with forest honey. Another refreshing drink is the organic fresh lemongrass ginger and mint tea, a muddle of herbs served with lime juice and honey. Or for something more traditional, add Earl Grey tea leaves for an added twist.
With tea must come tasty bites and the must-try scones come with a choice of raisins, chocolate chip, pistachio or citrus…all served with clotted cream and homemade jams! Then there is the Chiang Mai strawberry tart – fresh and in season – and enticing rum-chocolate pot with madeleines.
Raya Heritage is famous for its Asian Crossroads cuisine and this exotic theme is carried through its tea offerings as well with the yum takrai moo, smoked pulled pork lemongrass salad, lady’s finger filled with minced chicken & pork with organic bean sauce, mixed pounded unripe rice with coconut, miang Burma or roasted chicken wings with Szechuan pepper.
