Le Méridien Chiang Mai presents a portal to a new perspective in accommodation set in the heart of Thailand’s northern capital. The hotel exudes an intriguing blend of Le Méridien’s European heritage and the local Lanna era-style to deliver a contemporary cultural experience backed by a natural outdoor canvas.

The hotel’s 384 guestrooms await tech-savvy travellers, who can stay connected with broadband internet and enjoy a modern entertainment experience centred on a high- definition LCD television. Most rooms overlook Doi Suthep Mountain while all rooms are outfitted with a signature Le Méridien Bed to ensure a restful night’s sleep.

Two gourmet restaurants serve international and Italian cuisine, and the hotel’s two bars present cocktails, fruit infusions and a selection of coffees and light snacks throughout the day. Conference and banquet facilities can cater to small social functions and large 1,000- delegate conventions, while Le Méridien Spa and a fully-equipped Fitness Centre enhance guest’s wellness during their stay.

Just 7km from Chiang Mai International Airport and minutes from the railway and bus stations, Le Méridien Chiang Mai sits on Chang Klan Road, where guests can sample local delicacies at the many eateries, explore ancient temples and hunt through shops and the nearby Chiang Mai Night Bazaar and Chiang Mai Arcade.



Le Méridien Chiang Mai’s 384 guestrooms stimulate those who stay with European sophistication polished with local heritage, each capturing an inspiring view of Doi Suthep Mountain and the hills beyond.

All rooms and suites feature glass-and marble bathrooms with ultra-cool massaging rain showers, and guests can sink into slumber on exclusive king- or twin-size Le Méridien Beds.

Every room is wired for broadband high-speed internet access to keep guests connected during their stay, and a flat screen LCD television, digital audio-visual system and CD library present an encompassing in-room entertainment experience.

Le Royal Club on Levels 20/21/22 features a relaxing lounge hosting complimentary daily breakfasts, afternoon teas, all-day snacks and evening cocktails. The club also provides free wireless internet access and a laundry service.



Poised in the city centre on Chang Klan Road, Le Méridien Chiang Mai integrates into the community’s fusion of 700-year-old cultural heritage with modern living, surrounded by forested mountains. Ancient chedis and centuries-old temples punctuate the nearby streets that bristle with boutiques brimming with local handicrafts, restaurants serving regional cuisine and architecture reflecting Chiang Mai’s Lanna Kingdom roots. A short stroll from the hotel lands at the colourful Chiang Mai Night Bazaar and further to the relaxing Mae Ping River.

A natural panorama unfolds just outside of Chiang Mai, inviting visitors to trek along rivers to waterfalls, ride elephants along forest trails, visit hidden hill tribe communities and journey up Thailand’s highest peak, Doi Inthanon. Guests can also tour ancient mountain temples, escape to the Phu Phing Palace gardens and explore the Chiang Mai Night Safari.
