Situated in the heart of historic Chiang Mai old city founded in 1296, the 25-room and suite Rachamankha is next to Wat Phra Singh, justifiably the city’s most famous temple (cir. 1345). Four temples of notable interest are within easy walking distance from the hotel, out of thirty-three functioning wats or temples in the walled city of old Chiang Mai.
Rachamankha, the leading luxury boutique hotel, does not reveal itself to the passerby, but excites curiosity and creates a receptive mood. Only after passing through the hotel forecourt, the Zen-like simplicity and sophistication of the colonnaded courtyards welcome guests to the world of serenity and contentment. The hotel's distinctive architecture aesthetic is inspired by the eleventh century B.C. vernacular Chinese dwellings, from which Northern Thai architecture has its roots. Rachamankha was designed by Thai architect Ong-ard Satrabhandhu in the style of residential living to encourage a genuine feel for the history and culture of Lanna Chiang Mai. A leisure walk reveals hidden courtyards and gardens where unexpected surprises and captivating spaces are to be found on every turn.
The Library at Rachamankha exudes old world charm and character; it houses over 2,000 books ranging from novels to work on Thai history of art and architecture, design and culture. The library lounge is a relaxing place for conversation and refreshments.
The enchanting open-air massage pavilion overlooks a tranquil 20-meter pool where drinks and light snacks are served pool-side throughout the day.
Chiang Mai's old city - a 20 minute road transfer from Chinag Mai Airport.
The interior of Rachamankha was conceived according to the unlikely concept of simplicity and extraordinary attention to detail. Walls are made with traditional lime plaster over handmade brick, the same technique used in temples since the founding of Chiang Mai in 1296. The founder, Rooj Changtrakul, supervises every detail of every room, from choosing antique Chinese cabinets, area rugs to the arrangement of flowers. There are 23 luxurious superior and deluxe bedrooms and two exquisite suites - all fully equipped with every amenity for either work or leisure. The common design theme is the uninhibited mix of antiques from different period around the world, from Europe, Africa, China, Burma and Thailand scattered throughout the hotel.
32 meter squared king bedroom adorned with 19th century Chinese furniture and original Asian art. With wireless connection, and other digital amenities, and gorgeous decor, this is a great option for your luxury Thai holiday.
40 meter squared guestroom fitted with a king size canopy bed with silk drapes, adorned with 19th century Chinese furniture and contemporary Asian art. This blissful room type is bright, airy and utterly elegant.
There is a stunning wealth of character to Rachamankha boutique hotel. Set in the old town of Chiang Mai, you will be immersed in a mysterious and enigmatic ambience whilst relaxing in your room, dining in the hotel's luxury restaurant, recharging your batteries at the spa or embarking onto an elephant trek...
At Rachamankha, you can dine al fresco on the intimate patio or in the restaurant proper. The restaurant offers a taste of Chiang Mai that supposedly is fast disappearing - traditional dishes celebrating Lanna, Burmese and Shan cuisines are prepared in a simple yet elegant style. There is also an extensive wine list.
After a hard day's trekking through the mountains or local markets, retreat to the sanctuary of Rachamankha's serene massage spa for a traditional Thai treatment.
