Our stay at Baan Cheep Chang was the perfect antidote to the normal daily stresses of city life. After a warm greeting from the amenable staff, the pace quickly shifted down a gear as we relaxed into the peaceful, green surroundings and slipped into the soothing waters of the delightful pool.

We chose Chiang Mai over Thailand's beach destinations because we wanted to experience the country's culture as well as its natural attractions. This villa was the perfect base to do just that; the architecture and interiors offering a cultural journey in themselves (we couldn't help but make regular stops between rooms to peruse the intricate woodcarvings, statues and paintings and old photos that fill the villa). After two days relaxing poolside and another two exploring the stunning Chiang Mai countryside, coming home to healthy home cooked meals, we left Baan Cheep Chang relaxed, inspired and vowing to return.

Highlights

The sheer amount of space, inside and out, makes this villa a comfortable share for groups or a couple of families. The bedroom suites, expansive pool terrace and riverside sala allow for a good balance between social and private time. The pool is very generous by most villa standards and lazing in the jacuzzi after dark with a drink in hand, the moon and stars overhead and the river flowing in the background is a rare and supremely relaxing treat.

Surprises

The proliferation of ornaments and antiques inside the villa means you have to tread a little carefully so this is not an ideal choice for families with adventurous youngsters. The decking and wooden panels on the main balcony and riverside pontoon were a little insecure in places, also a worry if children are running around.
