Rachamankha

Rachamankha

*****

Built around a series of characterful courtyards, gorgeous boutique hotel Rachamankha's well-proportioned design emulates Chiang Mai’s ancient heritage by creating a private compound. Once inside, the decor is a sublime mix of white walls, raw silks, stripped floors and an enviable collection of Asian art and antiquities.

Highlights:

  • A peaceful, private, grown-up sanctuary

  • Art collection evokes times past; decor is modern luxe

  • Historic, central location

In the know

Also need to know:

Smoking is allowed in outdoor areas only. The hotel offers knot-kneading massages upstairs in a pavilion by the pool, as well as in-room treatments.Rachamankha is the personal project of interior designer and owner Rooj Changtrakul and his step-father, the award-winning Thai architect Ong-ard Satrabhandu. The main inspiration for the hotel is 15th-century Lanna architecture, although it also reflects the symmetry of Chinese design. The owner’s collection of art and antiquities is on display throughout the hotel and in the upstairs gallery.

Mr and Mrs Smith reviews

There is something a little Matrix about him,’ Mr Smith whispers, peering down the panelled library towards its adjoining study, where a trim, serious-looking man pours over building plans through the kind of over-sized, owlish spectacles only creative folk with good haircuts can wear. We’re talking about the Architect – the impossibly suave, linen-suited co-owner and designer of Chiang Mai’s Rachamankha hotel. He looks up, sees us huddled at the other end of the long refectory table and stands to close the door with the smallest and most inscrutable of nods.

Mr Ong-ard Satrabhandu is indeed

Dining information

Restaurant:

The elegant Rachamankha dining room is the only part of the hotel open to non-guests. Small and intimate with white linen-covered tables, Ming-style porcelain, Lanna-period antiquities and heavy silverware, it serves northern Thai and European food. Top tips are the deliciously fragrant Tai-Yai prawn soup and earthy lamb masala stir-fry.

Top table:

One outside in the pretty courtyard.

Both the restaurant and bar see action until 10pm.

Room service:

Light snacks and drinks are served from 6.30am–10pm.

Hotel bar:

Rachamankha’s bar, beside the restaurant, is a charming spot for a pre-dinner cocktail or a cup of the best coffee in town.
