Four Seasons Chiang Mai, Chiang Mai, Thailand

This huge resort, part of the global luxury Four Seasons chain is designed to give you a rural, Chiang Mai experience without ever having to leave the premises. From watching rice farmers at work, to getting up close and personal with water buffalo, to cocktails on a sala overlooking a lake, the Four Seasons have thought about it all. We stayed in one of the biggest hotel rooms we had ever seen, featuring three bedrooms, four bathrooms and three individual terraces around a huge living and dining area.
