The Dhara Dhevi Chiang Mai
Many first-time visitors to Bangkok feel that staying at the Dhara Devi is a requirement. One of Asia’s most legendary properties, the hotel has hosted dignitaries and celebrities for well over a century and has maintained its reputation for elegance and excellent service. We recommend the River Wing rooms, which afford superb views of the Chao Praya. Guests can also enjoy the Jim Thompson silk boutique, superb restaurants, tea parlor, and outstanding spa. The city’s main temples and sights, including Wat Arun (the Temple of Dawn), Wat Pho, and the Grand Palace, are a just a longtail boat ride from the hotel’s pier, as is the River City art and antique complex.
