In Chiang Mai we were met by Aung, who was also lovely and took care of us very well. Once again I am so glad that you recommended the 137 Pillars House, it was perfect and I would have happily stayed there some more days.

With sculptured roof-lines under tropical skies, Amanpuri is a tranquil oasis located in a secluded natural coconut grove just above a soft, crescent shaped beach. Elevated walkways weave through statuesque palms to reach a cool reception area and a large slate-blue pool.
Stone steps sweep down to the beach and the mesmerising Andaman Sea, where the gentle fragrance of the frangipani flower delicately scents the sea air. Cruise to Shark Point, where crystal clear waters and shallow diving await. Famous for its tame leopard sharks, the area is also home to bright-purple sea anemones, snappers and schools of moray eels. If you are looking for total escape, take a stroll to The Spa, a holistic sanctuary shaded by whispering coconut palms. Pamper yourself with an impossibly soothing body wrap treatment. For an unusual dining experience, head for the Naoki restaurant, where authentic Kaiseki fare blends the finest French techniques with the artistry of Japanese cuisine. Round off the day in style, sitting on the terrace to watch the sunset over the darkening Andaman Sea.
Understated luxury is the theme, with locally inspired, beautifully furnished interiors, complemented by outside salas or private dining decks. Choose from Garden Pavilions interspersed among the trees and Ocean Pavilions with spectacular views. If you are looking for exclusive, spacious family accommodation, we recommend the resort's Villa Homes. Thirty of these luxuriant decorated with Thai furnishings, art and antiques. With beach access, a private pool, living and dining villas are hidden amongst the coconut palms, each with between two and six bedrooms Thai salas, a live-in maid and cook they are the setting for a perfect holiday experience.
Best time to be there
November to March. April is often the hottest month of the year, and also the month of the celebratory 'Songkran' festivals. May to October is the rainy season, with short bursts of rainstorms refreshing the green paddy fields once more.
