About this property


By the Ping River, this design resort provides both luxury as well as a home environment at the same time. Butterfly is about a 20 minute drive from the airport, and 10 minutes from the Old City. All rooms are set in a village cluster layout and situated in a private zone amidst a garden and large fish pond with a unique and reflective design of the local culture, with contemporary relevance. Room features air-conditioning, spacious bathroom with air jet Bathtub, outdoor shower and private balcony/garden. Butterfly offers spacious 2 salt-system swimming pools with built-in air jets, an all-day restaurant, riverside bar, meeting room, reading room, Sala Theater and a oversized garden overlooking the river. Chiang Mai has over 300 temples, but the most popular by far is Doi Suthep. Other places of interest include the Botanical Gardens, Elephant Safari, and Kantoke Dinners. The resort provides a complimentary shuttle to both the airport and the downtown area, making it easy to make trips to the Night and the Sunday market. At 125 meters, this is the longest property by the river, and provides guests with ample riverside locations to lounge. The uniquely designed Butterfly Resort is sure to make you forget that you are in Thailand's second largest city.

The Butterfly Resort...heaven on Earth
The decor AND the location
This is one of the most tastefully decorated place I have ever had the pleasure of staying at. It is situated in a gigantic property with impeccable grounds and lovely staff. The outdoor shower and jacuzzi tub were a definite highlight too! The only real drawback for us was the menu. The breakfast was great,, but we found the rest of the menu to be rather average and a bit overpriced for Chiang Mai, in addition to a 200 Baht corkage fee, which is rather steep. BUT, it truly was a gorgeous place to stay and the hourly shuttle into the city was much appreciated. Fantastic!

Beautiful small resort!
The staff was amazing, very helpful with everything. Very easy to get to and back from downtown.
the resort is set on the river and is surrounded by nature. the resort is small and set out of town. but it is easy enough to take the shuttle into town and back to the resort. we also took a tuk tuk back from town one night. the rooms seems very new and were extremly comfortable. the staff was wonderful and very helpful. also, the food was very good there.
