Resort & Spa


The Dhara Dhevi is a unique and impressive resort “city” spread over 60 acres of peaceful, natural landscapes, incorporating ancient amphitheatre, serene paddy fields and exotic plantations on the outskirts of Chiang Mai.

The Dhara Dhevi Resort blends colonial and ancient Thai architecture, complemented by wellness and cultural programs dedicated to the ancient Lanna culture.

Three of the resorts restaurants, Ferang Ses, Fujian and La Grand Lanna, are considered among the best in Thailand, while the Dheva Spa is a truly wonderful place to relax with 25 treatment rooms, heat and aqua facility, ayurvedic centre and an exotic design based on a 19th Century Mandalay palace.

“Mandarin Oriental Dhara Dhevi, Chiang Mai is both a hotel and a destination, and feels like staying at a heritage site… Here you can marvel at fine examples of Asian culture, all in one place, all in absolute comfort." - The Herald Sun, Australia
