Unique experiences and sublime luxury await guests at this elegant Four Seasons resort.
No matter where a Four Seasons is located, luxury is a given. But this setting makes this outpost particularly unique. Yes, guests can indulge in a spa treatment or stay in a 20-bedroom private resort within the resort. But they can also participate in rice planting and buffalo bathing, as well as learn the art of Thai cooking, explore the resort's own nature trail, take a Thai kick-boxing lesson or offer food to local monks as they make their morning rounds.
Accommodations consist of pavilions, villas and private residences. All are generously furnished with down duvets, CD and DVD players, iPod docks, satellite TV, safes, coffee makers, refrigerated private bars and multi-line phones with voicemail. But it's the rich, tropical décor that stands out, along with extras like outdoor salas overlooking the rice fields. House restaurant Sala Mae Rim focuses on the simple composition of Northern Thai cuisine, while the Elephant Bar is an atmospheric setting for evening drinks. The Kids for All Seasons program is complimentary for children 4 to 12, and offers a nice opportunity for parents to sneak some time for themselves. Meeting spaces and a ballroom are available, and for those who want a wedding not soon to be forgotten, venues include a small field set among scenic rice paddies.
