|Kaomai Lanna Hotel and Resort is a unique boutique
accommodation on the route from Chiangmai to Doi Inthanon, the
highest mountain in Thailand. Our rooms are renovated from the
former tobacco curing barns, decorated in contemporary Lanna style
with colonial style teak wood antique furniture.
Kaomai Lanna Resort is perfect for the true nature lover. Surrounded by a big, beautiful tropical garden in Chiang Mai, the resort features unique rooms converted from real tobacco curing barns and furnished with colonial style antique furniture.
50 years ago the tobacco industry in the northern part of Thailand reached its peak, and tobacco farms and curing barns flourished. But time passed and things changed. 30 years later other developments came; the tobacco curing barns faded from the northern part of Thailand, replaced by orchards and real-estate projects. Most of the barns were destroyed but it was decided that at least a few reminders from the old days should be remain. So 18 old barns were converted into 36 lively guestrooms in a peaceful garden and became known as the charming Kaomai Lanna Resort.
In the garden, swarms of butterflies fly around the flowers. Through the bushes, squirrels and small birds move along the branches.
On the ground, many varieties of palm trees abound along with wild orchids hanging from giant trees, big clumps of bamboo and several kinds of tropical plants.
Enjoy our uniquely relaxing swimming pool in the peaceful garden. Cycling around our natural area is also possible. Get relaxed by our Thai traditional massage service.
|Looking at these barns from the outside ,one can see
the roofs made of corrugated steel sheets and the old red-brick
walls, unchanged throughout the past 50 years. Step inside however,
and you have entered a new world .
Kaomai Lanna is created as a community-based resort, operating under the principles of environmental and community sustainability. The resort was built based on the balance between the nature and the culture:
18 tobacco curing barns were nicely renovated from the total long aged 48 barns into 36 lively guestrooms. Inside the barn, the rooms are decorated in Post- Lanna style with antique Thai Burmese colonial antique furniture. The resort is surrounded with tropical shady towering trees, varieties of palms and bamboo, leafy fruit trees and wild flowers.
The upper and lower level rooms are furnished in 4 unique ways. While guests on upper floors will experience the Thai traditions of sleeping on a mattress set on a raised teak wooden floor, guests on the lowers floor will find their rooms furnished with authentic teak wood antique beds.
