10 Stunning Boutique Hotels in Chiang Mai

These boutique hotels in Chiang Mai offer a taste of quintessential Thailand with their unique and cozy feels, luxurious amenities and central locations.



Chiang Mai is quintessential Thailand without quite as much of the hustle and bustle of Bangkok. While Bangkok can easily become overwhelming, Chiang Mai offers everything to love about Thailand but in a more relaxed and laidback way.


This ancient city (seriously, it was founded in 1296) located in the mountainous region of Northern Thailand is quaint yet exciting at the same time. The city itself is full of life and excitement and it’s even home to a large expat community too if you’re looking to relocate! There are over 300 temples to visit as well as many markets and cafes to explore. But there’s a lot happening in the jungle hills surrounding Chiang Mai too, and the city is a great base to take a couple day trips from. My family and I just adored our visit to Araksa Tea Plantation and if you’re looking to interact with some elephants in Thailand, Elephant Jungle Sanctuary is an experience I’d suggest looking into!


If you’re planning to add Chiang Mai to your Thailand itinerary (which you definitely should) check out this list of 10 cute boutique hotels that are sure to make your stay a memorable one!

Nampiangdin Boutique Hotel is just absolutely stunning. You’ll never want to leave the gorgeous, warm atmosphere.

This “walking street” is an open-air market and great place to find local handicrafts as well as food!
