137 Pillars House in Chiang Mai, Thailand

As the breeze flows serenely through the lush forests of Chiang Mai, the sounds of the Mai Ping River like a beautiful song as it winds through the emerald mountains, 137 Pillars House emerges from the forest as the fine gem that it is. In the ancient town of Wat Gate, this fabulous hotel seamlessly blends stylish Western design with serene Eastern touches. Bright and charming, each individually styled room is warm and inviting, with vibrant color accents and walls of windows and glass doors that allow sunlight to play off the rich wood floors and accents. Plush king-sized, four-poster beds ensure a wonderful night's sleep, while private terraces are the perfect spot to relax and enjoy the beauty of the surrounding forest. With truly elegant bathrooms, ranging from standalone classic claw-foot tubs to enticing rain showers with open ceilings, all the modern amenities, and personal butler service, enjoy each day at 137 Pillars House as if you were true royalty.

As the sun rises over the mountains on your first morning, sit down to an enchanting breakfast in The Dining Room before venturing out for an exciting day. Spend the morning visiting the temples of Wat Prathat Doi Suthep, built in 1383, the 13th century Wat Chiang Man, or choose any of the other 300 fascinating temples that dot the mountains of Chiang Mai. After some sightseeing, enjoy a leisurely round of golf at Chiang Mai Highland Golf Course, and tee off amidst rushing waterfalls, flowing streams, and picturesque forest and mountain views. Spend a day in the forest with a visit to the elephant camp, where you will learn about these magnificent animals, then delight in a ride atop one as you head out on a scenic adventure. Return to the hotel that afternoon and spend some time with the hotel's chef, first shopping in the local market and then enjoying a fun filled cooking lesson. With the day coming to a close, pamper yourself with a trip to the spa before enjoying a fine meal at Palette as the stars emerge over the mountaintops. That night, as you drift off to sleep surrounded by complete luxury, dream of your next amazing day in Thailand, at 137 Pillars House.

Stayed at 137 Pillars House for several nights following time in Bangkok. Very peaceful —and staff was outstanding. Definitely will cause you to “exhale” a bit after spending time on the well manicured grounds here. Found the pool to be great for laps and you cannot beat the scenery.

One of the finest boutique hotels in the world. The food was excellent and the rooms extremely comfortable. The outdoor shower was lovely. While the physical plant was special what truly sets 137 Pillars House apart is the extraordinary level of service the hotel offers. Each guest is assigned a concierge who makes an amazing effort to help organize activities, dinner reservations etc. If you are fortunate enough to have Pui assigned to you room you will be taken care of in a unique and totalle effective way. After spending time learning all the things we were interested in, she followed up by text messages throughout the day and into the evening. You really feel as though your happiness is of paramount importance to her rather than force feeding activities that benefit the hotel. A special place in a special city. Heartily recommend.

In February I had the pleasure of staying four nights at the elegant 137 Pillars House. The property, only 30 rooms/suites, is perfectly charming and beautifully appointed in every way. I want to return for an extended period of time. The service was extraordinary. Toto, my butler, anticipated my every need and took such good care of me. All staff are gracious and professional. The cuisine is wonderful and varied. The extensive gardens are lush and create privacy and beauty at the same time. They are maintained perfectly. The neighborhood is terrific and offers many areas to poke around quite happily. The hotel deeply respects the rich history of the area and its centerpiece is the beautiful 137 Pillars House, which is an historical building of great beauty. . . a place to have a cup of tea, a cocktail, or a conversation. . . it is truly beautiful. I look forward to returning and recommend the hotel most heartily.

What can I say but praise. From the airport pick up to the wonderful staff and suite. Amazing. Eaky at the front desk was great. He also picked us up at the airport. It was great coming home in the afternoon to this little oasis and relaxing by the green wall pool. The breakfast buffet was wonderful too. The We stayed in a Rajah Brooke suite. Felt like your own little casita. Staff were all so very helpful and pleasant. The only glitch was no water in the hotel on our last night at the end of the day for a few hours when people would have wanted to shower...and no offer for compensation for the trouble? Luckily we planned dinner to eat dinner there that night so delaying our reservation was not a problem until we had water again. A complimentary drink before our dinner would have been a nice gesture for the trouble. Apart for that inconvenience and the premium room rate, I would highly recommend this smaller boutique hotel for a luxurious retreat after a day of exploring Chiang Mai and surrounding areas. Expensive by Thailand standards so save your money and try to fit it into your itinerary and budget. Well worth the splurge!

Want to feel like an ol'timey drunk, the Jack Bains Bar is the way to go. A timeless bar with a barkeep that makes the greatest Old Fashions, and Martini's. I'm not 100% on this but I think they said the bar is located in the house of the teacher for the King of Siam from the King and I.
