Although I was there for business, I can see this spot being great for a honeymoon or romantic getaway. Chang Mai itself is one of my favorite destinations, it is peaceful, has a great history and culture, wonderful architecture and the people are among the friendliest on earth.
And, this being a Mandarin Oriental you can be assured that the staff are the friendliest of the friendly. Great service and attention to detail make walking around the large, impeccably landscaped grounds, a pleasure.
There are several restaurants including a tea house, French and Fujian style restaurants, as well as a few casual restaurants. Although you will want to tour Chang Mai, you could stay at the hotel and never lack a good meal.
being on business, I did not have enough time to take advantage of the spa, but every person I chatted with who had used the spa, spoke very highly of it. My next trip will include some spa time.
It's easy enough to say this is a Mandarin Oriental. People who have stayed at their other sites will know that they are among the best in the world. That being said, Chang Mai rates among the best of the mandarin Orientals.
