Villa Maxima

This two-bedroom northern-style teakwood house is located within the same compound as the home of its owner Chayasiri Vichayarak who, together with her late husband Wichai Pitakworrarat, restored an old riverside mansion and converted it into the highly acclaimed hotel Praya Palazzo a decade ago. For a couple of years now, Chayasiri has let go of the Bangkok property. This small-scale pet project of hers in Chiang Mai offers a tasteful retreat that any art and culture lover would appreciate. Booking is compulsory.
