Thailand, North and East
Info : Lanna Mantra
Lanna Mantra hotel is on the outskirts of Chiang Mai. With 30 large rooms spread across four two-storey buildings, the resort is peaceful, charming and exceptionally good value.
The rooms are split into a number of categories depending on the size and location; those with river view are slightly more than those overlooking the water garden. Each room has slightly different decoration with a Lanna theme and is equipped to a very high standard, with en-suite bathrooms and private balconies. Spacious 4 person rooms make the Lanna Mantra ideal for families.
The Lanna Mantra has an excellent swimming pool overlooking the Ping River, which meanders into Chiang Mai. The hotel offers a selection of boat trips to nearby villages as well as rides into town. Other facilities include a small fitness centre, Thai massage and a great restaurant in a large thatched building.
The hotel is a twenty minute drive from Chiang Mai centre and there is a shuttle service to ferry guests between the town and the hotel. Taxis are inexpensive and simple to organise at any time of day.
The peaceful atmosphere is perhaps the hotel's main selling point, along with the value of the rooms and the great service. It's a really laid back and relaxing place to stay and many travellers will actually prefer to stay outside the city.
Deluxe - This is our first really 'upmarket' category. It might be a beautiful tiny hotel with very limited facilities or a 5* resort hotel with all the trimmings; but any hotel in this category will be a well-run establishment with very comfortable rooms, a strong service ethos and excellent food.

I started doing a search on the net for specialists and came across Experience Travel Group. I liked a lot what I saw on their website so started an online dialogue with one of their operators. She quickly realised what we are looking for and got one of her colleges who was a specialist in this area. A chap called David Gookey called me back to chat about what we wanted. We gave David a brief for our budget and the type of things that we wanted to do and he did the rest. All I can say is he put together the perfect holiday, sorted out the best tours and some incredible hotels. All guides, flights, transport and transfers taken care of. If you're reading this David thank you once again.
