My husband surprised me for our anniversary and my birthday with a staycation at 137 The Pillars. Although we live here in Chiang Mai and have eaten at their restaurants for five years, and had their wonderful Christmas Teas etc. this was our first time staying here. We had a butler who gave us his Line so we could contact him for anything, anytime! Example, we want to use the pool so I texted him and when we arrived at the pool, the towels are set up on the lounge chairs with extra for use after swimming. By the way, the pool has an enormous wall behind it completely covered in lovely foliage! So serene! Whatever room service we wanted, we texted him. The breakfast was included in our package and, with covid, it is not a buffet, but you can order whatever you want from the menu. Their Eggs Benedict was authentic although I chose salmon not meat. The congee with chicken was exceptional, just like in Singapore Chinatown or China! If you are a westerner and have never had this rice breakfast porridge, try it here because it is very tasty! We had a lovely suite with a huge veranda that they call a balcony. A balcony is small...this is a large veranda which was on the second floor. ( get marketing to change the word to veranda) It had a wonderful special wood rocking chair with foot rest, A deep- seated sofa to fit three people, a table for eating meals, and beautiful orchids and flowers, all overlooking the grounds. Our lunches, dinners, and breakfasts were exactly what we ordered, flavored to our request, and with abundant portions. The afternoon tea, which my husband ordered on the veranda for one lunch, was perfect and had a combination of savory and sweet items. We each had a large pot of tea. The room comes with a mini bar, lots of water, and there is an assortment of various alcohol bottles if you want to drink alcohol or make a mixer, like a rum coke. The wifi is excellent. There is an indoor footed bathtub with bath salts, an indoor large shower and an outdoor large shower, which my husband really enjoyed. The manager was on site and she was very charming. The entire staff were exceptional! They were appropriately attentive, not hovering. We try to do staycations in this time of covid and felt that since we were not flying down to Phuket or Koh Samui (lovely places too) that we would splurge a bit and stay at this incredible place. It is historic. It is romantic. It is quite special. Those who can should perhaps consider staying at 137 The Pillars to help such traditional and historic places continue to provide extraordinary experiences for locals and tourists for decades to come.

I’ve stayed at many 5-star hotels, including 5 in Thailand, and 137 Pillars is among the the best of the best. The style of the main house and the rooms reminds me of a very elegant colonial lodge I stayed at in Nairobi, Kenya, but with the most modern of amenities and superb WiFi. The food was excellent, and the service went far out of their way to make me feel welcome, including some special requirements I have with laundry due to sensitivity to detergents. Of special note were the nice outside balcony and having both indoor and outdoor (but extremely private) in-room showers. At first I was a bit baffled by the outdoor shower, but staying their during the rainy season I found it delightful to be able to shower outside, but in private, during a rainstorm. My only regret is that, due to COVID-19, the hotel wasn’t full. I can’t wait to go back when it’s full and enjoy the people as well as the magnificent property.

We chose this hotel because of its rating, exterior and location. But the overall experience is even better than those good points. My cafe-hopping trip ends up being relaxing trip at hotel instead because we totally fell in love with the hotel. The hotel is quiet and peaceful, despite its location at city center. Their garden, pool area and restaurants are truly beautiful and well-designed. So be sure to pack swimsuit in your luggage. Staffs are also cheerful with their greetings. Room is spacious, large-size dressing room, with rain shower, bath tub and outdoor shower. Modern colonial design in the room goes really well with Chiang Mai city vibe and history of the hotel. Totally love how they well-designed room & the hotel. Since their location is city-center, it is very convenient to order famous street foods/coffees from food delivery service. Staffs were very helpful, they prepared plates and utensils along with my delivered food automatically, without any need to inform them. Points that I think they could do better is their breakfast selections, to have wider ranges. Also, since their garden is pretty large, there might be some insect noises during the night. If you are hard-sleeper, an earplug is recommended.

We were traveling as a family of 4 and had the perfect stay at this hotel: it's so quiet inside and the large swimming pool is set so nicely. On top of that the room was beautiful, large and we also had a private swimming pool. To top this up, our butler, Pui, was amazing and provided every single piece of information or service we could ever need. Would definitively come again.

The property is immaculate with service and attention to match. Our room, which was a David Fleming McFie suite was gorgeous , especially liked the enclosed terrace. Our butler, Toto was courteous and most helpful with restaurant recommendations as well as other useful information. My only comment with the room would be that all chairs, sofas are quite low. Not particularly suitable or comfortable for tall persons, I would recommend having a taller chair available in the rooms. The throne seat also appears slightly lower than standard height. All in all, a beautiful hotel with plenty of charm. The gardens, the pool, the century old teak house, and all the villas are very well put together. A lot of love, work, inspiration and talent has gone into the design and construction of the property. Do stay here if you have the opportunity, you will not be disappointed! Our experience was full five star plus with the exception of dining, which is separately reviewed at Palette.
