Asian luxury boutique hotel firm, Akaryn Hotel Group, will add a third site under its Aleenta Resort brand in Thailand.
Aleenta Chiang Mai Resort & Spa will arrive in Q1 of 2023, following the success of the existing Aleenta Resorts & Spas in Phuket and Hua Hin.
Restored antique construction
The latest site will offer 45 rooms, an outdoor swimming pool with lounge area and bar, an all-day-dining restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and a fine-dining menu in the evening, library bar serving cocktails and drinks in the evening, Ayurah Wellness centre offering a full-service spa and a meeting room/event space for up to 40 people, workshop and multipurpose area.
Accommodation comprises 32 spacious hotel rooms with private terraces, and one-and-two-bedroom pool villas. The highlight of the hotel is a four-bedroom teak wood villa, made from antique golden teak that was collected by the owner, restored, and carefully reassembled into a new structure, to create a traditional Thai living experience finished with contemporary comforts and a private swimming pool.
Tastefully merging traditional Thai design with tech-savvy, modern facilities, each villa will be crafted from recovered, traditional teak wood, manifesting a sustainable design concept whilst celebrating the essence of rejuvenation.
With a clean and contemporary aesthetic, the facade of the hotel will marry with the state-of-the-art facilities and amenities, and interiors will feature a soothing palette of neutral hues, natural materials and sophisticated furnishings for an atmosphere that encourages the ultimate tranquillity.
A rewarding life
Situated between the ancient city of Chiang Mai and the region’s lush countryside, Aleenta Chiang Mai will be geared towards the health-conscious traveller seeking relaxation, holistic rebalancing and an authentic Thai hospitality experience.
Aleenta, which means ‘a rewarding life’, has served as the hotel collection’s manifesto since its launch in 2006. The five-star resorts are anchored upon spacious suite accommodations, premium design, exceptional F&B, first class facilities and holistic retreat programmes.
Akaryn Hotel Group MD Anchalika Kijkanakorn said: “After a fruitful few years with the success of the first two Aleenta Resorts, we’re excited to be launching Aleenta Chiang Mai along with the addition of holistic medical programmes, elevating the resort’s wellness offering to an unrivalled level in the region.
“Continuing to strive for excellence, the Aleenta Resort brand will welcome additional properties over the next few years, expanding beyond the borders of Thailand.”
