Raya Heritage Chiang Mai, Thailand

Best For

Those who want to see the city but also escape from it! Raya Heritage is 20 minutes outside the city so you can indulge in retail and relaxation in the same day.

the Low Down

Raya Heritage is an all-new 38 luxury suite property set in a lush green garden on the banks of the Ping River in the mountains of Chiang Mai. Inspired by the Spirit of Lanna life in former times, Raya Heritage offers beautifully curated, one-of-a-kind furniture pieces, artefacts and accessories, sourced from and handmade by local craftspeople. A highlight of any stay here is the menu in restaurant Khu Khao, showcasing dishes from Thailand, Myanmar, Laos and China – a nod to the cultural crossroads on which Chiang Mai sits. The icing on the cake is the location: it only takes 20 minutes to get to the iconic city centre.
