Situated overlooking rice terraces in the Mae Rim Valley, the Four Seasons Chiang Mai is an extremely luxurious retreat in a beautiful part of Northern Thailand.

Katie and Carrie are here to help give you the inside track.

There are 98 spacious pavilions and even larger villas in total, with vaulted ceilings, verandas, polished teak floors, rich Thai cotton decorations and beautiful Siamese artwork on display.

Away from the rooms the hotel is focused around the 66ft infinity pool offering yet more beautiful views of the terraces and the valley beyond. A separate, equally infinite pool is for adults only, and this being a Four Seasons a poolside foot massage is available.

Dining options include Sala Mae Rim restaurant where guests can enjoy authentic northern Thai delicacies or afternoon tea with sweeping views of the Mae Rim Valley. Alternatively, dine al fresco on high quality international cuisine at the stunning open-air Terraces restaurant, probably the best option for families. The Ratree Bar & Lounge and the Elephant Bar both serve evening drinks and cocktails (try the signature Mango and Sticky Rice cocktail at Ratree) in relaxed surroundings, again with wonderful views.

One of the best activities at the hotel also involves food, with the renowned Cooking School at Four Seasons Chiang Mai available for guests - both beginners and seasoned home cooks - to learn the art of Thai cuisine from chef and instructor Pirun Pumicome, in the well appointed, copper-pot-lined kitchen.

Another highlight is the spa with seven spacious treatment suites offering a range of Four Seasons treatments inspired by ancient Thai rituals and using native herbs, spices and aromatic oils.

Why we love it

Located 30 minutes outside of the bustling city you can relax in the beautiful mountainous surroundings. I highly recommend giving the Cooking School a go - one of the most talented chefs I have ever met
