Hotel Overview


The historic Wat Gate, on the Mai Ping river in Chiang Mai.

Rooms at 137 Pillars House

The spacious, comfortable suites preserve features of the original 1889 building while offering contemporary luxury accommodation. With king-sized beds, bathrooms with free-standing Victorian baths and indoor/outdoor showers, and pretty verandas overlooking tropical gardens, there is no stinting on either character or luxury here.

Food and Facilities

Menus make the most of fresh local produce and feature a range of Thai and international dishes. Have breakfast in bed or on your veranda, enjoy lunch in the Palette restaurant, which is in the hotel’s original 1800s homestead, or dine in a secluded corner of the gardens. Take a signature picnic hamper with you on your day’s sightseeing (complete with champagne), and when you get back, linger over traditional afternoon tea in the parlour lounge. As the sun sets, have a cocktail (or two) in Jack Bain's bar.

Activities at 137 Pillars House

Take a refreshing dip in the pool, and make the most of thoughtful poolside touches from cold towels to homemade sorbets. Rejuvenate yourself in the gym or with some yoga in the grounds, or indulge in an aromatherapy massage in the comfort of your suite. The Wat Gate Khar Rham temple is nearby, as are numerous cafes, boutiques, art galleries and markets. The hotel can arrange tours for you, such as around the beautiful and atmospheric old city.
