    "Maybe just for a moment, it's such beautiful thought to get away from all, you come close to nature,stay at this resorts is not a bad idea, look out to the window, you see an ox and a farmer working in the rice paddy field, you are not dreaming, this is a 100 percent real as you can get, they really grow rice the way it suppose to, for someone live in a city all their life, it's a real treat to experience, without saying, Four Seasons brand offer the best money can buy, they try their best in every way, so let's get lost, live like a royalty for a moment, don't forget to book an elephant safari and lunch picnic basket on the bamboo raft, relax and enjoy, just watch the world goes by or lost in paradise for a while."

    "Amazing resort with every amenity possible. We had a pool cottage which gave us a lovely suite and private pool. It is comprised of many cottages and buildings with several rooms in each arranged around a small lake. Several on premise restaurants all outstanding. Several outdoor pools. Rooms with nice towels and bed linen. Dining rooms outstanding and also Great breakfast buffet. Staff friendly and helpful. This was a relaxing end to our trip. This resort is a short drive from the city."

    "Must do: spa and yoga. Our experience at Four Seasons Chiang Mai was incredible. We knew it would be an amazing highlight of our vacation to Thailand, but it was still far beyond our expectations. All views of the property are breathtaking and their friendly service met all random needs imaginable within seconds (tennis court reservations, mosquito repellent, shuttle to night market, boarding passes, etc.)Must dos:1) Spa. Can't pass up this experience if you make it this far. Our traditional Thai massages were unique and relaxing. Loved the aromas and flowers everywhere, including a bowl of rose petals for you to stare at during massage.2) Yoga lessons. Deeraj, the yogi at Four Seasons Chiang Mai, was the best. We took a 7 a.m. class and had his attention all to ourselves. There's no more perfect venue than yoga mats next to rice patties while listening to the morning noises from nature. Deeraj gave us excellent corrections and advice throughout our session. Makes me want to do yoga everyday now."

    "Best massage I had among the Thai spa experiences. It was the best massage I had in Thailand. I've had many massages from many places and I must say this place was the best to me. Their masseuses were caring and highly experienced."

    "Words cannot begin to express our delight in this hotel. We stayed there as part of our honeymoon and even though might be expensive, it is worth every cent. We stayed in pool villa no.5 and were delighted. The villa was beautiful, full of details. First of all the hotel is beautiful, very green, very Asian. We loved it. The service was amazing. Every person who worked there seemed to be happy all the time; all of them really kind, even the chef on the Italian restaurant came to say "hi" during our dinner. Everyone made us feel as if we were royals!The food was spectacular. We had dinner on both restaurants and room service and on each, everything was delicious. And at last, the spa. Oh the spa... It was the best massage we have ever had in our life! Congratulations to the Four Seasons and all of their staff, we hope to return one day!"

    "Beautiful agrarian location. Great food. Don't miss the cooking school course. Fantastic views of the rice paddies. Enjoyed watching the water buffalo. Rooms with beautiful decor. Location although away from Chiang Mai proper you can reach the city within 30 minutes. Great outdoor activities nearby including elephant rides."

    "Gorgeous property, lovely staff - such an amazing stay! My husband and I spent four nights here, and I didn't want to leave. Beautiful, peaceful resort, the Four Seasons Chiang Mai was a wonderful break from a hectic travel schedule. I really enjoyed the market tour and cooking class at the resort, and my husband found it tough to tear himself away from the pool. Highly recommended!"

    "We decided to go to Chiang Mai for the second part of our honeymoon. We stayed 3 nights at the FS Chiang Mai after staying 6 days at the FS Koh Samui. Overall, the grounds are beautiful. Lush greenery and flowers, winding pathways to walk around.I read there are over 40 gardeners tending the grounds each day! A great view from the lobby of the resort. We met the resident water buffalo, including the famous albino one who was kind of a pink color. The shops on the resort were OK, very expensive.The pool, spa and cooking class were the highlights. Ahm was a great concierge! Overall, we enjoyed our time at this resort, the service was great - but we enjoyed the FS Koh Samui more. The spa and food at rhis resort is better though.Room: We stayed in villa 901, which was an upstairs villa with a large deck. We were disappointed not to get a pool/rice paddy view as we were on our honeymoon, but the location was pretty central.We also liked being on the second level. The room was OK, warm wood decor interior. The room was a bit tired, it could use an upgrade of the floors and bathroom.We had a problem with the A/C that stopped working on the second night, and two leaks in our bathroom from the ceiling, one of which left a large water stain on the carpet. Management did send us some complimentary beer and food for our trouble, but we wish they had just switched our room.Food: The Thai restaurant Sala Mae Rim is awesome. And we loved meeting and talking with Joy! We enjoyed the tasting menu, my husband had the seafood one. He said the fish salad with tamarind sauce was amazing.I had the khao soi noodles (a must eat in Chiang Mai!) and loved them - a yellow curry with chicken. So good - slightly spicy and very fragrant. Terraces restaurant was pretty good, the summer rolls were gorgeous and delicious.Overall, the food at this resort is excellent. We actually thought the food was better here than at the FS Koh Samui. The resort is pretty secluded, so unless you take the free shuttle into Chiang Mai - you're stuck eating at the resort. At least the food is good!Other: We did a couple's spa escape package which was very special - we had our own private suite. The spa here is amazing - definitely do it! It's a beautiful spa and the massages are great. My husband got two while we were there! We did the cooking class which was one of the best things we did on our trip.We had Poom as our guide and assistant who was lovely, he was very friendly and nice. We started with a trip to a market to look at different Thai spices, fruits vegetables, and other foods.We were disappointed we didn't actually choose food there to cook for our meal, but that's OK. The chef we had teaching our class was "Meow" - she was very fun and a good teacher! It was a private class which made it go very quickly and with personalized attention - could not have asked for anything better.The food we made was delicious! We did the Friday class which was som tum (spicy green papaya salad), tom zaab moo (Northeastern-style spicy pork soup), phad kapraow gai (stir-fried minced chicken with hot basil), and phad see-iew goong (stir-fried rice ribbon noodles with prawns and soy sauce).I don't eat seafood, so they gave me chicken for my noodles. It was great to have everything set and cleared for you, so all you did was the cooking! Then they set a beautiful table for you to enjoy your food. Wonderful experience! We also did the optional vegetable carving afterwards which was fun.Resort: The pool here is awesome. It's huge and has multiple levels. We spent most of our time at the adults quiet pool, which was pretty private. The pool service is great - and I loved the basil peanuts that they served poolside! Don't miss the secret "cold pool"!We took the free shuttle into the night market one night, which was a nice change of pace. We spent a half day at the Elephant Nature Park then came back and went to the pool - totally worth the private driver for the day! The hotel arranged everything which was perfect."

    "I must say that Four Seasons upholds its reputation in this exquisite resort. The kindness of staff, the sense of service but no hassle, the wonderful scenery and taste of details, the flexibility and the delicious catering without mentioning the in-house cooking classes experience. Just so Grand to grasp the beauty of Chiang May. An absolute recommendation."
