Villa Mahabhirom, or a villa of great pleasure in Thai, was conceived with the simple imagination of creating a place where friends, couples and families can come and enjoy their time together in a sophisticated, comfortable setting that threads history, culture, community, art, craft, and a sense of peace and well-being.
The historic city of Chiang Mai on the banks of the Ping River dates back to the 13th century and was the capital of the independent Lanna Kingdom until 1558. The old heart of the city still retains historic walls and moats, and is one of Thailand’s most important cultural and religious centres. With its spectacular ring of mountain backdrop, surrounding verdant rice fields, scenic natural parks, tribal communities, fascinating history, gentle culture and unique cuisine, Chiang Mai truly is the cultural capital of the North.
Change is inevitable, and Chiang Mai has welcomed a new wave of eclectic residents from other parts of Thailand and beyond who have brought with them their exciting contemporary, cosmopolitan flavour of art, cuisine and style. Together the old and new blend harmoniously together under a relaxed atmosphere, making this vibrant city what the Travel + Leisure magazine names the ‘best city in Asia’.
Villa Mahabhirom is located on the road to the historic Wat U Mong (U Mong Temple), the original seat of the Sri Lankan tradition of Buddhism in Lanna that was founded in the 13th century, against the mountains of Doi Suthep (Suthep Peak), the symbol of Chiang Mai. Nearby on the same road is Wat Suan Dok, the temple of the former royal family of Chiang Mai. The historic Old City and chic Nimmanhaemmin neighbourhood, with its trendy bars, cafes and restaurants, is a mere 10 – 15 minutes away by car. Some of the Thailand’s most famous National Parks are all within two to three-hour drive away.
