Ping Nakara Boutique Hotel & Spa

Location: 135/9 Charoenprathet Road, Chang Khlan, 50100 Chiang Mai, Thailand

In the early 1900s Chiang Mai was at the center of a thriving teak industry. Foreign managers oversaw logging concessions throughout the forests of Northern Thailand. With the help of local labor and hardy elephants they performed their arduous and dangerous work, extracting teak logs and floating them downstream for grading and sale. Today the teak wallahs are gone. But the river and forestry station remain, and the relaxed ambiance of Chiang Mai city is just as enticing as ever. The Ping Nakara takes inspiration from these times past with an intimate hotel built in the elegant colonial style of the period. The hotel’s graceful gingerbread architecture is accented by hand-carved fretwork and creates a cool and restful environment. Throughout the nineteen rooms you’ll find thoughtful use of natural materials and a distinctive yet practical style. This sophisticated design is matched by relaxed yet professional service, providing a welcoming retreat for the traveler.
Enjoy the serenity of the veranda next to the pool, curl up with a book in our library, or unwind with a drink in the rotunda. Whatever your preference, we’re sure you’ll enjoy this return to elegance. Nineteen large rooms are individually styled, each one decorated with unique hand-crafted furniture. Decorative accessories and furnishings reflect colonial traditions and are made from the highest quality materials. In the bathroom you’ll find a range of natural bath and beauty products supplied by the Nakara Spa. All rooms are fully equipped with modern amenities. A central elevator serves all three floors of the hotel. In short, the rooms at Ping Nakara have been created to provide you with tranquil beauty in the elegant style of times past, but with all the modern facilities that today’s traveler might require, including hotel’s renowned pillow menu.
