This sprawling, upmarket resort run by Thailand’s Amari group was originally set up to cater for guests and visitors at the adjacent Agricultural Project Station.

The imposing reception with adjoining restaurant is set at the top of an equally imposing circular entrance driveway with 76 chalets scattered amid gardens to the rear. Chalets are either mountain or garden view but are otherwise similar. All come with private balconies, minibars, TV, tea- and coffee-making facilities and WiFi. While there are hot water ensuite bathrooms, there’s no air-con since you don’t need it at this altitude. Decor is simple and overall the rooms are pleasant without being spectacular. We don’t think they are 5,000 baht a night spectacular, but Angkhang Nature Resort does have a reputation and the cool scenic region is very popular with local and Asian tourists in particular. Despite their rates it’s often booked out in advance for peak season.

Staff are friendly and helpful, as we’d expect from Amari, and there’s plenty of thoughtful details designed to help you enjoy your stay, such as mountain bikes for hire with nearby bike trails marked out plus binoculars available for birdwatchers. There’s no pool – it’s rarely that hot on the mountain – but conversely rooms do come with electric blankets for those cold winter nights. There is a massage service and the restaurant, using of course products from the neighbouring project, gets very good reviews, though it’s not cheap either. Nearby Ban Khum village offers dining alternatives as does the Agricultural Project itself.

If you are planning a stay, have a good look on booking websites to try and get a better rate, and organise your own transport to and from the resort. When the going rate for a day minibus hire is 1,500 to 2,000 baht plus petrol in Chiang Mai we fail to see why the resort feels the need to charge 6,000 baht for a transfer from Chiang Mai. Negotiate with an airport taxi at Chiang Mai airport – we were quoted 3,500 baht -- and remember that pick-up bus hire to the top is 1,800 baht from Chiang Dao and 1,500 baht from Fang.

High season runs from November 1 to Dec 14 and January 16 to March 30. Peak is December 15 till January 15.
