Fodor's Expert Review Siripanna Villa Resort and Spa

36 Rat Uthit Rd., Chiang Mai, Chiang Mai, Thailand

On Chiang Mai's southern edge, this attractive ensemble of detached villas nestles within tropical gardens on a large site near the celebrated Gymkhana Club, the city's oldest sports club. There's space enough for a 300-square-meter (3,230-square-foot) swimming pool and several tree-shaded terraces. Rooms are furnished in burnished teak and rich, mostly silk fabrics, with plenty of golden flourishes.

  • attentive service
  • Gymkhana sports facilities (including golf course) available to visitors
