Dhara Dhevi Hotel

Chiang Mai, Thailand

Welcome to Shangri-La. The Dhara Dhevi on the northern edge of the Thai city of Chiang Mai is no mere hotel -- this 60-acre dream property conjures the words “empire” and even perhaps “paradise.” The project began as the irrepressible vision of Thai mogul Suchet Suwanmongkol, who sought to capture an idyllic miniature Thai kingdom for his guests: villas looking out over green rice paddies tended by Thai farmers, monks praying in a Buddhist temple, and an arts and crafts village where guests take Thai cooking and dance classes.
