THAILAND’S NORTHEN CAPITAL CHIANG MAI IS THE CITY OF 300 TEMPLES. IT IS A LIVE SANCTUARY, AN ESCAPE FOR BODY AND SOUL. BUT WE FOUND A VERY SPECIAL PLACE, OUR OWN PRIVATE SANCTUARY, A TRUE TEMPLE. THERE IS A PLACE IN CHIANG MAI WHERE WE FEEL MORE THAN GUESTS. HERE WE ARE FAMILY. WELCOME TO SIREEAMPAN.
With a unique historical strength, Chiang Mai, Thailand’s second largest city, lies 800 km from Bangkok and is known as the city of 300 temples. Temperatures in April are very high even at night but the Thai New Year festivities “SONGKRAN” will not leave you dry for long. Thousands of people take to the streets throwing water at each other in a synonym of purification for the upcoming new year.
The flight landed late in Chiang Mai and we were eager to get to know the city. The hotel provided us a shuttle service from the airport to the hotel, making the trip even more comfortable and we were driven through the old town to the hotel, just 15 minutes drive away.
As soon as we arrived we realized: this place was not just another hotel, there was a feeling of calm and tranquility, a discreet luxury like never seen before. The exterior made us remember a temple, surrounded by a small jungle. The feeling of peace and calm is indescribable. We felt that we traveled in time and could finally get to know Thai culture in its purest state. It was getting late, quite late, but a dinner was waiting for us, in an open cloister, surrounded by a lush jungle.
There are only 11 luxurious guest suites where rich Siamese heritage meets modern luxury. This small number of rooms makes you feel like you have the hotel just for you and the “noise” of silence and tranquility are 100% guaranteed. Here ,at this incredible place, I can easily say why Thailand is the land of smiles. You will feel refreshed when you wake up to a tropical rain where you can only hear the water drops falling and the birds singing to a new day.
Possibly one of the few hotels in the world where we can choose any place of the hotel to have your fresh and healthy breakfast. Whether by the pool, by the lake, on the terrace, just wherever we want. It makes us feel unique.
Sireeampan also provides 24 hour front desk and concierge, business lounge, meeting room and karaoke suite, pool, fitness center and spa, a piano lounge and a restaurant.
You can try the Thai food at its best in any of the restaurants but if you are not used to spicy food so then… get ready. We just loved it.
Sireeampan is an experience made of smiles, privacy, luxury and rest.
