Set on valley slope just outside of historic Chiang Mai, the beautiful Veranda is a very convenient launch pad to explore the area—and the perfect retreat after a night out.
This peaceful retreat offers 80 rooms with tremendous views over a mountain landscape of meandering streams, rice, and tea terraces. The rooms vary greatly, covering seven categories, but all have sleek furnishings, cushy duvets, big bathrooms, and private balconies with inviting daybeds.
The spa offers signature treatments using products that were developed in-house, and the two restaurants offer European and local Lanna Thai fare, both with a choice of air-conditioned indoor or breeze-cooled outdoor seating with views of the infinity pool and the valley beyond.
Veranda is close to Wat Pra That Doi Suthep, a temple on a hill about ten miles from the city, and Wat Umong, another beautiful 700-year-old temple. It’s also very convenient for the Chiang Mai Night Safari, which offers after-dark tram rides though animal parks, and the riotously colorful botanical gardens of Royal Park Rajapruek.
