Phu Chaisai Resort
Phu Chaisai Resort, Chiang Rai, Thailand
Set on a hillside overlooking a remote part of northern Thailand, the Phu Chaisai Resort is a wonderful boutique property for those looking to get right into the heart of Thailand's beautiful countryside.
All rooms come with stunning views over the hills, and are spacious, well designed, and have large balconies for sitting back and soaking up the vista. The main categories of rooms are designed in a traditional Thai country style, featuring bamboo, wood and plastered stone work, have air-conditioning, large bathrooms with separate showers, and a lounging area.
There is also a selection of traditional Thai Villas, some with private pools, on the adjoining hillside, where guests can enjoy total privacy in a very traditional setting.
The resort has a good restaurant, designed to make the most of the excellent views, and a sociable bar area. The spa offers a good range of treatments, but do note that it closes at around 6pm, as it is mainly open to the elements and so early closing avoids the mosquitoes.
The pool sits on a terrace overlooking the hills, and is a great place to refresh after a day exploring the surrounding area. They also offer a wide range of activities, including trekking, massage courses, cookery classes, mountain biking and golf.
