Valentine’s Day at Anantara Chiang Mai Resort offers a dreamy getaway package known as the “Romantic Chiang Mai Escape” during the month of February. Featured in the getaway package are a three-night accommodation in a room or suite. With daily breakfast for two, an in-room American style breakfast accompanied by two glasses of wine, a 90-minute Thai or foot massage and a Dining by Design experience, show some self-love as well as you and your partner enjoy this relaxed vacation that you can both unwind together.
End your stay with an additional 45 minute sunset river cruise on a private boat, which involves separate booking and is not a part of the package, as you admire the spice gardens, lush nature and gorgeous Thai traditional houses as you wine and dine on tapas. Because, if you’re going to go all out with a darling package, you might as well end on a high as you laze across the picturesque Mae Ping River. The resort is also a 15 minute walk away from the city’s popular Night Bazaar, outdoor markets, riverside boutiques and ancient temples, so if idling by the pool isn’t an ideal holiday activity, there is always plenty to do at the Anantara Chiang Mai Resort.
