Welcome to Sukantara
Sukantara Luxury Eco Resort and Spa, a small luxury natural Chiang Mai boutique resort lies on the sloping bank of a mountain stream in A.Maerim, Chiang Mai province.
With a growing reputation worldwide, travelers from all corners of the world are drawn to the blissful retreat of Sukantara Cascade Resort & Spa to be embraced by the surrounding lush hills and inspired by nature.
A trickling waterfall cascades through the resort offers an unforgettable experience that begs to be undertaken at least once in a lifetime. Tales of Sukantara’s boundless tranquility have fueled word of mouth recommendations amongst well-heeled travelers who seek a unique natural hideaway in an absolute state of purity.
Resort guests come from various walks of life, ranging from senior executives at multinational companies, to business entrepreneurs, sultans, and even Hollywood royalty, including Angelina Jolie. In addition, Sukantara Cascade Resort & Spa has won recognition from prestigious media worldwide, including a spot in the “Five Best Hotels by Waterfalls” featured in The Independent newspaper.
From the moment guests arrive at the reception area, they are welcomed by the soothing sight and trickling sound of the waterfall just beyond. As the water rolls over the boulders, it sprinkles the air with a refreshing mist that gently floats down to caress the skin.
In addition to the sensory treat, negative ions add a health bonus for our guests. Such molecules are most concentrated around waterfalls and well known to promote overall health through the neutralization of free radicals in cells and revitalization of the body’s systems.
Sukantara Cascade Resort & Spa is undeniably a romantic retreat that enhances the passion between two lovers.
The pervading charm of the resort has also been known to kindle love between two souls. A former European ambassador to Thailand not only fell in love with the Lanna culture, but fulfilled his destiny and also fell in love with a local lady from Chiang Mai at Sukantara.
To this day, the couple still frequent Sukantara as our special guests, bringing along their friends and their loved ones, who in turn bring their families — and so the love story continues. Many couples have sought out Sukantara Cascade Resort & Spa as the venue for their dream wedding and honeymoon. The cascade provides the perfect backdrop for the big day, and the romance of the resort creates unforgettable memories.
The resort restaurant, swimming pool, spa, and common areas are positioned to take advantage of the spellbinding vistas of the waterfall and surrounding forest. Guests who cannot resist the clear water are more than welcome to indulge in a refreshing dip. They can also try their hand at fishing using traditional Karen hilltribe woven rattan baskets. This is a popular pastime, especially amongst our younger visitors, and an activity which is bound to bring laughter and enjoyment for the whole family. A gaggle of affable peacocks, geese and Bantam chicks roam the resort grounds and waterfall freely, adding to the unrivaled appeal of Sukantara, to the delight of shutterbug visitors.
The area is best explored by hiking, visiting nearby Karen villages, and joining elephant tours, and more tourist attraction of A. Maerim but an equally good option is just chilling and enjoying a beauty treatment or a signature massage at the resort´s Chiida Spa.
A thousand tales and recommendations cannot compare to experiencing Sukantara Cascade Resort & Spa first hand. The waterfall resort is located along Mae Rim-Samoeng Road, a convenient 35 minute drive from Chiang Mai International Airport but a world away in terms of natural character and atmosphere. On a past visit to Sukantara, the former governor of the Tourism Authority of Thailand once exclaimed “Isn’t it wonderful that we have a resort like this in Thailand?”
Sukantara Luxury Resort &Spa is also in “Hotel de Charm” collection – a unique amalgamation of exotic resorts and hotels Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai, exuding with transcendal tranquility, charming captivating beauty and artistic local décor.
