Traditional Thai charm meets chic designer hotel at Anantara Chiang Mai Resort, close to all the action in Thailand's northern capital. The spa and the restaurant, housed in the former British consulate, are both highlights, but we think you'll love the spectacular riverside views and the large pool with loungers.
