Built around the former 1920s British consulate, this tropical resort lives up to Anantara’s reputation for laidback luxury. Breezy open-air courtyards make the most of its stunning location on the banks of the Mae Ping River, and the 109 rooms and suites come with expansive balconies and daybeds for soaking up the views. The Kasara Suites double the footprint of regular rooms, providing 1,130 square feet of space to stretch out in, plus access to a dedicated lounge for breakfast, evening cocktails and snacks. All guests can enjoy the 34-metre pool, a world-class spa and impeccable service. Staff handle myriad requests, including arrangements for guided tours of historic sites and hot-air balloon rides.
Don’t miss: Make the most of the riverfront location with a private sunset sail down the Mae Ping aboard the hotel’s boat – champagne and nibbles included.
