About this listing
This is an ideal place to get away for a health-conscious holiday or a longer-term stay for healing, rejuvenation, personal retreat or quiet time. Short and long-term stays are welcome.
Located alongside the Pavana Resort, Chiang Mai.
This elegant newly renovated two-story villa is situated alongside one of Thailand's top Health/Wellness Spas.
It includes a master bedroom with king-size bed, 1 full bathroom upstairs, 1 half bathroom downstairs, built-in wardrobe, open concept living room/kitchen and upper and lower outdoor balconies with spectacular views.
The villa comes fully furnished, including a washing machine, refrigerator/freezer, various appliances, king size bed and much more.
It is located at the end of a row of three other villas with the majority of windows facing south, allowing plenty of natural sunlight and the living room has elegant sheer curtains to provide privacy while letting in the light of day. Due to its proximity to the landscape and other villas, it provides more privacy than any other 1-bedroom villa.
Nestled in the gentle rolling hills of a private gated and secure community among a rural village in Mae Rim District, it is just a 30 minute drive to downtown Chiang Mai.
Ideal for 1-2 people, but could handle a third person on the couch short-term.
I live in my home when it is not rented, so it is well cared for and equipped with most conveniences of a real home that you might need. Many other wonderful upgrades exist to facilitate comfort and convenience.
