Hotel Overview


Khao Yai (‘Big Mountains’) National Park, surrounded by lush green hills and mountains, just two hours from Bangkok.

Rooms at Kirimaya

The rooms, suites and tented villas bring the outside in with a mix of traditional style and contemporary luxury, using natural woods and luxury silks and linens, with private balconies perfect for taking in the beautiful views. The villas have private indoor spa pools and private decks overlooking Khao Yai mountain.

Food and Facilities

Try Italian and Japanese dishes in the open-air MYTH restaurant, or go for classic Thai cuisine in Acala. The dining pavilion is inspired by a traditional Thai open-air rice barn and its tables ‘float’ on water, providing a romantic and memorable dining experience. Wine lovers should go on a vineyard tour to find out more about local wines. Have a relaxing swim in the pool or pamper yourself with traditional Thai therapies in the MAYA spa, which use natural ingredients such as guava leaf extract.

Activities at Kirimaya

Golfers will love the 18-hole golf course, designed by Jack Nicklaus, while keen trekkers should head out on the nature trails. The lush tropical rainforest of Khao Yai and its rich wildlife (including wild elephants) are on the doorstep. In the evening, have a cocktail while watching the stars.
