Throughout the space, stunning black lacquered wood furniture and exquisite pottery catch the eye; a scrupulous touch is evident in every tiny detail, from thematic design elements to the strategic use of natural materials, which provide an intriguing texture to the overall ambiance.

InterContinental Chiang Mai, The Mae Ping, has 240 stately rooms and suites offering views of either the old town or the misty slopes of Doi Suthep mountain. Room options include Classic, Premium, and Suite categories. The rooms are meticulously designed, blending modern luxury with local craftsmanship. Decorated in soothing shades of grey and gold, it featured textural accents inspired by the region’s arts and crafts. The spacious twin beds were adorned with high-quality linen, complemented by dark hardwood furnishings, a graphic rug, a plush sofa, two chairs, and a coffee table with a delightful assortment of treats.

The hotel’s main restaurant is Gad Lanna, on the ground floor. It has a traditional market feel, serving seasonal food with organic ingredients sourced from the Royal Projects and local farms. It opens onto the expansive terrace and lawn with scenic views of Wat Chang Kong temple and is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The Kam Lobby Lounge provides a serene retreat overlooking the hotel’s main pool, offering light meals and freshly brewed coffee and organic Monsoon Tea sourced from the verdant mountains of Northern Thailand.

The outdoor pool is an elegant retreat with chic black and white wicker chairs, sun loungers, and cabanas, all shaded by airy white sunshades. The bar, nestled beneath a weeping Banyan Tree and surrounded by palm trees, offers a refreshing escape.

The hotel has many beautifully designed function spaces, with options ranging from the grand ballroom to a secluded central lawn set within the temple grounds. The local community and guests also use it to see rotating art exhibitions and music events.
