History & culture
Within the heart of historic Chiang Mai lies a boutique resort aptly designed and decorated with the tribal heritage of northern Thailand in mind, called the Tamarind Village.
Enter the gateway through the bamboo arch and corridor, past the two hundred year old tamarind tree after which this hotel is named.
A series of flower-filled courtyards form the focal points around which forty two exclusive rooms and three spacious suites are located with bold textile furnishings from the various hill tribes of the region, hand-made lacquer boxes and embroidered tribal caps.
The northern Thai hill tribe influence permeates the hotel with authentic dishes like 'gaeng hang lay,' a delicious pork and ginger curry served at the Ruen Tamarind restaurant. Also, herbal concoctions from the Lanna Thai heritage of natural healing are used for treatments at the Village Spa to rejuvenate your senses.
Take the opportunity to embark on full day excursions and explore the heritage sites nearby, from temple and market trips to elephant treks, jungle walks, rock climbing and visits to artisan studios to gain some insight into the local culture and the legacy of the Lanna Kingdom.
We like: The northern Thai tribal touches.
Best for: Luxury break in the Thai hills.
