Chandra Residence

Stepping into Chandra Residence is like arriving at the home of my dreams: the gorgeous and eclectic interior design, the quirky details, the vibrance, the warmth… There are too many cosy corners to count! And the kitchen is purple! PURPLE!

This stylishly appointed 4-bedroom suite pool villa, borders lush national parks, the Royal Botanical gardens, and the revered Doi Kham temple. It’s also very close to my favorite temple, Wat Ton Kwain. Set on an expansive 8,000 square meter jungly property, Chandra Residence began as a private home that expanded to four buildings. Apart from the pool villa, there is a Colonial Residence with individual suites and a meditation temple.

Perfect for families and groups of friends alike, bespoke in-house services are available like having a great local chef prepare your dinner or a booking private class with a pilates teacher by the pool. Did someone say massage?

The host family go above and beyond what you would expect from a private residence. They even give you a local cell phone and do your laundry for you. It feels like visiting with incredibly welcoming friends who also happen to be expert hosts! A truly luxurious stay in Chiang Mai.
