Aleenta Retreat Chiang Mai officially opens in northern Thailand. This is the third property under the Aleenta brand from Thailand-based luxury boutique hotel specialist AKARYN Hotel Group. Offering 44 rooms and suites, a restaurant, bar, spa and wellness centre featuring tailor-made wellness programmes and retreats, the resort manifests AKARYN Hotel Group’s ongoing dedication to providing authentic, premium, sustainable experiences.
The spacious rooms, one-and-two-bedroom pool residences and a four-bedroom teak villa with a private swimming pool merge traditional Thai design with a soothing palate of natural hues, sophisticated furnishings and tech-savvy facilities. The four-bedroom Teak Villa is made from antique golden teak that was collected by the owner before being restored and carefully reassembled into a new structure that welcomes groups of family and friends to enjoy a traditional Thai living experience with modern comforts.
Embracing its spiritual location in the ancient city of Chiang Mai the resort is home to one of the brand’s signature Ayurah Wellness Centres. Alongside complementary daily yoga, Qi Gong, meditation and mindfulness classes, the menu of holistic wellness retreats and tailor-made programmes includes:
- Mind Balance (5 nights from £284 per night) combining natural healing and Thai Holistic Medicine.
- Detoxification (5 nights from £270 per night) to address the symptoms and underlying causes of burnout.
- Total Immersion Yoga (7 nights from £292 per night) incorporating movement, mindfulness and coherence.
- Healthy Living (from £298 per night) for those living with diabetes or who may have a tendency to develop the symptoms.
- Self Love (3, 5, 7, 14 or 21 nights from £290 per night) to overcome personal barriers through coaching, breathing, balancing and guided meditation.
- Mindful Vipassana Meditation (3 nights from £252 per night) training the mind to improve emotion, awareness, concentration and happiness. There is also an option to practise this retreat at the nearby temple, Wat Ram Poeng.
Retreats are enriched by healthy cuisine and a Wellness cooking class, as well as bespoke nutritionist-led plans with full plant-based options. Aleenta Retreat Chiang Mai enables clients to work with a resident ‘master healer’, doctor, nurse and nutritionist to achieve optimum wellness and balance in this tranquil environment.
Elevated gastronomy is available at the resort’s restaurant ‘The Garden’ which offers breakfast, lunch and a refined menu in the evening to both nourish and spoil. Menus have been curated to provide nutritious dishes that preserve the flavours of traditional Northern Thai Lanna cuisine alongside Western cuisine with a Lanna twist. The Garden refrains from using imported products and focuses on sourcing Thailand’s highest quality produce with plant-based, keto and low sugar/carb options also available. Dishes include Keto Pla Chon, Nan river chana argus fish fillet served with crushed Chiang Mai avocado, quail eggs and pecan nuts, and chargrilled Jumbo River prawn with khao soi angel hair pasta, roasted pepper relish & steamed greens. At the 1892 Bar guests can relax on the balcony overlooking the resort’s spiritual blessing garden while enjoying a distinctive selection of specially curated snacks including vegan Khao Soi Gyoza and Wild Boar Teriyaki.
Aleenta, which means ‘a rewarding life’, has served as the hotel collection’s manifesto since its launch in 2006 with the inaugural Aleenta Hua Hin Resort & Spa, and subsequent addition of Aleenta Phuket Phang Nga Resort & Spa. Each resort is anchored upon spacious accommodations, premium design, exceptional F&B, first-class facilities, holistic retreat programmes and a long-term commitment to sustainability. As the first hotel group in Thailand to go single-use plastic free in 2018, Aleenta Retreat Chiang Mai continues this commitment to responsible hospitality. The resort was designed from reclaimed wood as a low-rise property, built to protect the local eco-system, topography and maximise natural features. There are many initiatives in place to source locally, recycle, conserve freshwater supplies, reduce their use of carbon based electricity and engage with the community. Aleenta continues to seek and develop ways to further improve and support the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals across the brand.
The launch of Aleenta Retreat Chiang Mai is spearheaded by Swiss-born Resort Manager, Thomas Singenberger, formerly at akyra TAS Sukhumvit and Okura Prestige Bangkok. The resort opens on 6th April 2023 and is a member of The Leading Hotels of the World.
Rates start from £182 per night for a Deluxe Balcony Room, from £275 for a One Bedroom Pool Residence, from £420 for a Two Bedroom Pool Residence, and from £930 for the Four Bedroom Golden Teak Villa.
