Travellers would be able to experience renewed luxury at the InterContinental Chiang Mai Mae Ping, which draws on Chiang Mai’s Lanna artistic heritage, from 6 July 2023.

The hotel, first to open following the strategic partnership between IHG Hotels & Resorts and Thailand's integrated lifestyle real-estate group Asset World Corporation in 2020, is designed by PIA Interior Company.

“A conversion of the prestigious Imperial Mae Ping Hotel had been in the forefront of Chiang Mai’s hospitality scene for more than 30 years of operations. [The] InterContinental Chiang Mai Mae Ping is blessed with a storied past,” the hotel said.

Surrounded by iconic Chiang Mai landscapes, the city hotel enables travellers to explore the walking streets, the buzzing night bazaar and the historic Tha-Pae Gate dating back to the 13th century.

Once the first phase of renovations is complete, the hotel would feature 240 rooms and suites overlooking the alleyways of the old city or the Doi Suthep mountain.

“The stately guest rooms would feature stunning Lanna-inspired décor showcasing such traditional crafts as lacquering and metal beating, and spacious zen bathrooms with a plunge bathtub and separate shower,” the hotel said.

At the heart of the hotel, the manicured lawn encloses Wat Chang Kong, a 600-year-old stupa nestled in the shadow of a centuries-old tree, giving guests an oasis of serenity.

In addition, guests can enjoy culture-centric activities such as traditional toy and umbrella-making classes and pottery workshops, while children can take part in InterContinental’s own Planet Trekkers programme.
