AthitaThailand/Athita
 

Athita The Hidden Court is an intimate boutique hotel set in the heart of Chiang Saen. With just 9 rooms and suites, the hotel only accepts guests from the age of 12years and up. The boutique hotel’s quiet yet convenient location is enhanced in being next to the 700year old Athi Ton Kaew Buddhist Temple and being just a short 70m walk to the Mekong River that runs through Chiang Saen. A stunning contemporary Thai design, the architecture is a pleasant mix of spaces in natural tones with the colour palette created by the use of locally source teak-wood and traditional handmade fired earth bricks, the same as used in the construction of the neighbouring ancient Buddhist temple, altogether creating a space that is very restful on the eyes and on the soul. Family owned and run, the team at Athita The Hidden Court enjoy sharing their Thai heritage and the secrets of Chiang Saen, Chiang Rai and Northern Thailand’s ancient culture and traditions with guests.

The hotel also features a swimming pool, spa, a café and restaurant serving the freshest locally grown coffee, a range of freshly made fruit drinks and infusions, and a delicious selection of Thai and Lanna (Northern Thai) dishes. And with breakfast options from both Thai and International cuisines. With the family keen to share their heritage and culture with their guests the team at Athitha The Hidden Court have created a fascinating choice of cultural activities to enjoy from traditional forms of massage, discover Lanna culture, river trips on the Mekong, joining in the daily alms giving ceremony to Buddhist monks, traditional fabric dyeing, meditation, visits to see hand-loom weavers in action and guided city tours of Chiang Saen. With so much to see and do at Athita The Hidden Court Chiang Saen, one visit is never enough.

Starting price: 110 USD/night
