Chiang Mai’s charm

Here's one more reason to add Chiang Mai to your list of possible events and incentives destination: five-star luxury resort North Hill City Resort is opening in August with a slew of lovely and unique outdoor event spaces. 

Located in the idyllic countryside just 20 minutes from Chiang Mai International Airport, the boutique resort is the perfect place for taking in the region's natural and cultural attractions. 

Event planners can hold casual get-togethers at the outdoor pool, deck and barbecue area; for special events, there is the beautiful outdoor amphitheatre, while business setups can be held at The Vivace Lounge, which boasts a unique selection of cigars available for purchase. For gala dinners and banquets, they can be held in the ballroom, which seats over 200, round table-style. 

Meeting groups can enjoy farm-to-table cooking classes using produce from the 6,000-sqm on-site organic farm such as Chinese kale, Japanese mint and zucchini. For the sporty ones, they can pick up golf from instructors at the new 18-hole North Hill Golf Course situated just next door. 

After a busy day, delegates can retreat to any of the 42 rooms and suites, all of which afford breathtaking views of Doi Suthep mountain in the distance. 

North Hill City Resort is offering a 50 per cent discount for all room types until October 31, 2016. Available room types and discounted prices include Deluxe Garden and Deluxe Mountain rooms for THB 3,850 nett (US$109.90), and a Royal Suite and Presidential Suite for THB 7,900 nett (US$225.50), including breakfast for one.
