Pick of the Lanna-style resorts
Some way out of the centre — down a winding wooded lane at the foot of Doi Suthep — so we can only guess that the excellent rates Ayatana offer are to compensate for tuk tuk fees getting in and out of town since for what you get it's simply a great deal.
(They do offer free shuttle services to the night bazaar and walking street areas.) Rooms are large, well appointed and airy; the lobby's nicely decorated without being over the top; the restaurant's excellent and there's a very nice pool located in the centre of a beautiful, lush garden with plenty of chairs and tables about. Service is efficient and friendly and since it's almost in the forest the location is particularly quiet. Great spot!
