KRISDADOI CHIANGMAI - A LEGENDARY BOTANICAL RESORT


KRISDADOI CHIANGMAI -
A LEGENDARY BOTANICAL RESORT

This legendary country-style resort, situated at an elevation of 700 metres above sea-level, is famous for its beautiful botanical gardens and flower park extending over 20 acres of charming countryside in the southern valley of the twin peaks of Doi Suthep-Pui in Chiang Mai.

In the midst of the serene, picturesque landscape of mountains and lush evergreen forests, the floral splendour of the botanical gardens and flower park is a spectacular miracle of nature to be enjoyed.

The sight and sound of flowing water adds to the dramatic scenery that surrounds the resort. A waterfall cascades down a rugged cliff-face into a stream – a tributary of the Ta Chang River that flows through the resort all year round. Natural fountains dance in the cool breeze.

The intrinsic beauty of Krisdadoi Chiangmai’s mountainous setting and its landscaped gardens makes the resort, a true paradise for nature lovers.

A ‘Dream Resort’ and ‘Mountain Paradise’
The brainchild of an entrepreneur and property developer, Krisdadoi Chiangmai was initially built as a private retreat and dream resort for family and friends. The weekend vacation home, comprising nostalgic European-style country cottages set in the midst of acres of botanical gardens, was soon welcoming a steady stream of guests. By popular request, the private retreat evolved into a boutique resort project - the first of its kind in the Hangdong-Samoeng districts of Chiang Mai.

Known simply as the Krisdadoi Chiangmai, the botanical gardens and the flower park finally opened its doors to the general public. Twenty years later, Krisdadoi Chiangmai remains one of Chiang Mai’s unique attractions and a destination resort in its own right.

Krisdadoi Chiangmai currently offers 20 spacious rooms and suites. Plans are underway to offer a diverse range of luxury accommodation that includes Golden Teak cottage suites and luxuriously-appointed rooms offering the finest in service and guest room facilities, including modern technology, to ensure a comfortable and pleasurable stay and a delightful holiday experience.


At the crossroads of ancient civilizations and the centuries-old home of Lanna Thai artisans, Chiang Mai is famous for its a rich cultural heritage and artistic tradition.
This artistic excellence is reflected in the design, architectural style, plush interior d├ęcor and ambience of the resort.

The forested highlands of Doi Suthep-Pui were declared a national park in 1981 and became Thailand’s 24th national park. The national park is part of the Thanon Thongchai Mountain Range and is characterised by steep cliffs, highland evergreen and pine forest, waterfalls, rivers and streams. Doi Pui, the highest peak in the mountain range, rises to 1,685 metres above sea-level. The area is a natural watershed and the source of many of the key rivers and streams such as the Mae Rim, Mae Ram and Mae Sa rivers, that flow east of the Doi Suthep-Pui National Park into the famous Ping River that flows through the heart of Chiang Mai.

A rich natural habitat, 17% of the total flora in Thailand or over 2,000 species representing 193 families, including rare plants, are found in the national park.
BAN TAWAI WOOD-CARVING VILLAGE
At Ban Tawai, Hangdong, Chiang Mai

Ban Tawai in Chiang Mai is famous for its exquisite wood-carving featuring a diversity of exotic indigenous styles such as Lanna, Burmese, Chiang Saen, Chinese and Tibetan. Traditional folk skills and expertise in the ancient art of wood-carving have been passed down through the generations and Ban Tawai has established in name for itself.

The growing demand for traditional wood-carving as decorative items has contributed to the revival and preservation of folk art and culture and encouraged the community to preserve the artistic value of its village crafts. The quality of its crafts is recognised internationally and its cottage industry is a major tourist attraction generating sustainable income for the community.
