Family owned property
The family-owned property covers more than 8,000 square metres right on the edge of lush national parklands yet still conveniently close to the centre of Chiang Mai. Access to the four main buildings on the property – the Pool Villa, the Colonial Residence, the Meditation Temple and the Caretaker’s Residence – are by three separate entrance gates to ensure the utmost privacy. Once inside, the sanctuary’s personality is discrete and welcoming, offering your own personal paradise to explore.
Ideal for families, friends and couples travelling together, or as a collaborative space for creatives, the Pool Villa – one of the few independent private pool villas in Chiang Mai – offers you private access through the front gate entrance. The other residences are occupied full time and use different entrance gates.
