Chala Number 6 is an elegant hotel located within the ancient walls of Chiang Mai’s old city, mere steps away from the iconic crumbling ruins of Wat Chedi Luang. Chiang Mai is the jewel of northern Thailand – the quaint yet bustling old city sits in a valley surrounded by lush green mountains.
The hotel offers a luxury escape within the city, offering the trappings expected of a 5-star hotel while remaining immersed in the local culture. Its rooms are elegantly designed in the ancient Lanna style with plenty of carved teak wood and local handicrafts.
The central pool reflects the wells found at the heart of old family compounds, while the peacock motif seen throughout symbolises the abundance and fertility of the Chiang Mai valley.
All rooms are fitted with extra comfy, vast beds in sophisticated surroundings – clean and crisp with hints of local artwork and warm colours to offset the heavy, dark woods.
Guests can choose from various room types, from deluxe doubles to sprawling royal suites with multiple bathrooms. All rooms come with a private balcony and bathroom – perfect for relaxing after a long day exploring the charms of the old city. Upgrade that relaxation with the private jacuzzi available in some room options.
No luxury hotel in Chiang Mai would be complete without its on-site spa. The Waya spa at Chala No. 6 offers a range of rejuvenating traditional treatments from aromatherapy to hot oil massages – let the experts knead away, soothe your aches and pains, and help you unwind.
A daily breakfast buffet is available in the Chala restaurant, offering a mix of local treats and standard western breakfast options – guests can request a breakfast box if they plan to get out and explore early.
Other facilities include an on-site fitness centre, laundry service, and limousine service.
