Thailand: Karma Group has announced the addition of Karma Chang in Chiang Mai to its Karma Retreats portfolio.
Karma Chang is located close to the riverside in Chiang Mai, one of the city’s most popular locales. It is four kilometres from the city centre and five kilometres from Chiang Mai International Airport.
Karma Chang is described as “an oasis of relaxation and the ideal launchpad from which to explore Chiang Mai’s numerous attractions including Wat Ko Klang Temple, Wat Chedi Liem Temple, 14th-century Wat Phra Singh Temple and the serpent adorned 15th-century Wat Chedi Luang Temple as well as various authentic markets such as Warorot”.
Karma Chang offers several restaurants, a bar, and a swimming pool. Accommodation options include a range of hotel-style units and studio apartments, decorated in traditional Thai and Lanna style.
Chiang Mai is known as Thailand’s spiritual heartland, a mountainous region in the country’s north dotted with ancient Buddhist temples.
“You can really get a sense of Thailand’s ancient cultural history in the region surrounding Chiang Mai,” said John Spence, founder and chairman of Karma Group. “Karma Chang pays homage to this rich heritage and is the ideal launchpad to explore this amazing city and surrounds. You haven’t lived until you sample some of the famous Chiang Mai street food!”
Chiang Mai has recently been recognised by Condé Nast Traveller’s readers, who voted it among the Top 20 Small Cities in the World in its 31st annual Readers’ Choice Awards.
