Villa Mahabhirom is located on the road to the historic Wat U Mong (U Mong Temple), the original seat of the Sri Lankan tradition of Buddhism in Lanna that was founded in the 13th century, against the mountains of Doi Suthep (Suthep Peak), the symbol of Chiang Mai. Nearby on the same road is Wat Suan Dok, the temple of the former royal family of Chiang Mai. The historic Old City and chic Nimmanhaemmin neighbourhood, with its trendy bars, cafes and restaurants, is a mere 10 – 15 minutes away by car. Some of the Thailand's most famous National Parks are all within two to three-hour drive away.
Check-out ends at: 11:00

Unwind in seclusion

Wherever you’re coming from, in our case it’s from (loud and vibrant) Bangkok, Villa Mahabhirom enhances your stay in Chiangmai to be even more chill (than what you’d expect from a visit to Chiangmai), as it provides seclusion from it’s surroundings. Originally traditional Thai style homes converted into beautiful private villas in a compound cut off from the rest of the world, we were able to completely unwind during our short but sweet stay at Mahabhirom. It’s also a great place to enjoy the art pieces on display by Chamniam Thongma, who apparently also helped design the hotel. If you find his art enjoyable, his studio is about 30 min driving north from the hotel as well, where you’ll find more of his renown pieces and can enjoy additional chill time at the riverside studio cafe. The hotel compound is also thriving with lush vegetation, providing fresh cool air and lots of flowers to enjoy, something that was especially welcoming for us coming from Bangkok. The staff are super attentive at the hotel, bringing us lime and ice water while we were swimming in the pool, allowing us to late checkout till 4pm as our flight was at 6:30pm, helping with bookings, etc. We thought perhaps the noise of jets taking off/landing at the nearby airport could be considered the only negative by some, but we got used to it quickly and the positives of the hotel outdoes this so much. It’s also conveniently located relatively closely to Wat Umong, the Baan Kang Wat area and the numerous cafes & restaurants that surround it. While we felt the hotel restaurant being Vietnamese was a bit curious, their breakfast was really tasty and a great alternative to the typical “breakfast buffets” you get at many hotels in SE Asia. There are only three choices of breakfast dishes but they are regional (Thai/Vietnamese) and well prepared with a side of fresh fruits. I sometimes feel that some hotel breakfast buffets (not all, some are superb btw) are a result of the chef not giving a damn about breakfast, so Mahabhirom’s breakfast, while few in options, was a much appreciated and refreshing alternative. Its well worth the price, we certainly felt this way as by the second day, we decided to spend most of the day at or near the hotel. Cozy, secluded, comfortable and simply relaxing. Obviously I recommend this hotel completely for anyones visit to Chiangmai and I look forward to when we come back.
Thai themed boutique hideaway resort

Had afternoon tea which was very good but did not stay overnight. We were given a tour of the hotel, gardens very beautiful with rare plants. Villas & buildings are in Thai architectural style, exquisitely decorated. Located very close to the airport.

Wow our stay here was incredible! We were welcomed into a spa - like setting with a saffron tea and snack (moo palo). We stayed in the pool villa which had a spacious outdoor living area. The villa is a refurbished Thai house - which was cool to stay in! Don't stay here if you don't like a quiet/tranquil setting. There were supposedly 12 guests staying on property - we hardly ever saw other guests. We are foodie people from Portland and we were blown away by the Thai cuisine we had on property. Come to breakfast hungry - the American breakfast consists of 3 courses (fruit platter, homemade yogurt/granola, bread basket (warmed croissants), and main entree of eggs, bacon/sausage and potatoes/squash. We also enjoyed the Khao Soi for breakfast - chicken braised in a warm curry sauce with homemade noodles. Everything we ate and drank here was amazing and way better than restaurants in town. The hotel staff was accommodating to everything we needed from shuttles to town, delivering food/cocktails to our pool villa, and scheduling excursions. We would come back to Chiang Mai just to stay at this hotel!
Most tasteful hotel - you wish it was your own home
Reviewed 28 december, 2019
This is one of the most beautifully decorated hotel I have stayed in. The gardens and the villas are pretty unique. There are many different seating areas so you feel like you are in your own leaving room overseeing your own garden. The Thai food is also great and is not 'international That' like at the 4 Season's or the Anantara. Only negative is that you are close to the airport so if you are noise sensitive it can be an issue.(there are not so many flights though). Staff makes you feel home but this is generally the case in Thailand. I will certainly go back if in Chiang Mai
