An Opulent Boutique Hotel in Chiang Mai Offering Colonial Period Comfort and Luxury
Sela is a breathtaking boutique hotel in Chiang Mai, located just a short drive south of the walls of Chiang Mai’s old city, and is the ideal choice for those seeking relaxation and rejuvenation surrounded by the peace and serenity of the mountains, forests, and rice fields under northern Thailand’s clear blue skies. Each of the 14 rooms and suites have been furnished with all of the modern amenities that you would expect to find in a luxurious Chiang Mai boutique hotel and beds have been dressed in the finest linens and duck down bedding. The owners and team of the Sela Chiangmai are also keen to support and preserve the traditional craftsmanship that has long been the hallmark of the area. Guests can learn all about the traditional crafts of Sela’s home by taking a trip to nearby Baan Tawai, a living crafts village where you can watch artisans create incredible woodcarving, embroidery, pottery, lacquerware, wickerwork and silverware. In designing the interiors of Sela Chiang Mai the owners have created a space that feels homely, elegant and refined, this combined with the warm and personalized service style all contribute to that sense of staying in a family home rather than simply within a beautiful boutique hotel. Of all of Chiang Mai’s unique hotels Sela Chiang Mai is a great choice for solo travellers, couples and families and friends travelling together will come to be known as a Writers Hotel, the inviting spaces, the privacy, the serenity, and guests will find every bedroom furnished with a writing desk, pencils, pens, writing paper, drawing paper, envelopes, postcards, and stamps. Other services include 24-hour reception and security, car parking on site, complimentary WiFi, family room, bar, and a library with books and board games. Ask the friendly staff about activities in the area such as a cooking course, sunset stroll round a temple, or a relaxing massage or simply spoil yourself by doing nothing in gorgeous colonial comfort.
The Sela Hotel – An Exquisite Boutique Resort in Chiang Mai Like No Other
A stay at Sela means you will enjoy the relaxing atmosphere and service of an immaculate boutique resort in Chiang Mai located in a rural setting on the doorstep of Thailand’s second city. Entering the hotel, guests are greeted by a magnificent lobby reaching up to a skylight in the roof that allows natural light to flood the building. While the hotel, and its guestrooms, is air-conditioned, Sela Chiangmai is designed with energy efficiency in mind and air flow through the property is regulated to keep the rooms cool during the hot season and comfortable during the cold season. The property features 14 perfectly proportioned rooms and suites with high ceilings, each individually decorated with Indochina inspired interior design. Snuggle down in the finest duck down bedding surrounded by a mix of traditional furniture and modern amenities including air-con, en-suite bathrooms and all the comforts you would expect from a luxury boutique hotel in Chiang Mai before waking to a breakfast of continental and traditional Thai dishes. Relax in the breakfast room or on the terrace as you enjoy fresh yoghurt, home-made preserves, locally produced pastries, and a selection of seasonal fruits. The guest rooms at Sela face out onto well-kept gardens and a park that extends to the borders of the Ob Khan National Park with its forests, rivers, and waterfalls for you to explore. Visitors are free to treat Sela Chiangmai as their own whether relaxing in the library, enjoying the wonders of Northern Thai and classic European cuisine in the Windows Café and Restaurant, indulging in delicacies from the French brasserie, or enjoying a cocktail by the heated outdoor swimming pool. Chiang Mai, and all it has to offer, is just a short drive north from Sela. Spend a day exploring the countless temples, delighting in the incomparable northern Thai cuisine, or wandering around the city’s many markets. Book a day trekking through the countryside, visiting one of the area’s many ethical elephant sanctuaries, cooling off at the nearby Grand Canyon Water Park, or hire a bike and cycle the lanes of this rural idyll to discover the wonders of Chiang Mai for yourself. With so much to do, contact the team at Secret Retreats to help you plan the perfect Chiang Mai itinerary while staying at Sela Hotel Chiang Mai.
