The luxury boutique hotel group in Asia, AKARYN Hotel Group, has announced that it will open its third property under the Aleenta Resort brand of luxury boutique resorts, "Aleenta Retreat Chiang Mai" in Q1 of 2023, following the success of the existing Aleenta Resorts & Spas in Phuket and Hua Hin.
Offering 45 rooms and suites, a swimming pool, bar and lounge area, restaurant, spa and wellness centre and a menu of tailor-made health and wellness programmes and retreats, the AKARYN Hotel Group maintains its dedication to providing premium experiences with the arrival of its latest property.
Aleenta, which means "a rewarding life," has served as the hotel collection's manifesto since its launch in 2006 with the inaugural Aleenta Hua Hin Resort & Spa, with each resort anchored upon spacious suite accommodations, premium design, exceptional F&B, first class facilities and holistic retreat programmes for ultimate wellness uniting the mind, body and spirit. Situated between the ancient city of Chiang Mai and the region's lush countryside, Aleenta Retreat Chiang Mai will be geared towards the health-conscious traveller seeking the ultimate relaxation, holistic rebalancing, and an authentic Thai hospitality experience. Committed to offering a five-star experience, the launch of Aleenta Retreat Chiang Mai will be spearheaded by Swiss-born Pre-Opening Resort Manager, Thomas Singenberger, formerly at The Andaman Beach Hotel in Phuket.
Anchalika Kijkanakorn, Managing Director at AKARYN Hotel Group said, "After a fruitful few years with the success of the first two Aleenta Resorts, we're excited to be launching Aleenta Retreat Chiang Mai along with the addition of the holistic medical programmes, elevating the resort's wellness offering to an unrivalled level in the region. Continuing to strive for excellence, the Aleenta Resort brand will welcome additional properties over the next few years, expanding beyond the borders of Thailand."
Offering an intimate 45 rooms only, Aleenta Retreat Chiang Mai will boast a combination of 35 spacious hotel rooms, one-and-two-bedroom villas and a four-bed villa with a private swimming pool. Tastefully merging traditional Thai design with tech-savvy, modern facilities, each villa will be crafted from recovered, traditional teak wood, manifesting a sustainable design concept whilst celebrating the essence of rejuvenation.
The four-bedroom "Owner's Villa" is made from antique golden teak that was collected by the owner, restored, and carefully reassembled into a new structure, inviting guests for a traditional Thai living experience, endorsed with modern comforts. With a clean and contemporary aesthetic, the facade of the hotel will marry well with the state-of-the-art facilities and amenities, and when it comes to the hotel's interiors, guests can expect to be welcomed by a soothing palette of neutral hues, natural materials and sophisticated furnishings for an atmosphere that encourages the ultimate tranquillity.

With an in-house doctor, nurse and "master healer", Aleenta Retreat Chiang Mai will assist its guests in achieving optimum wellness and balance in life, through holistic approaches encompassing diet and nutrition, mental wellbeing, physical fitness and medical guidance, all set in an idyllic and tranquil environment.
Elevated gastronomy will be a priority at Aleenta Retreat Chiang Mai, with the utmost importance given to curating a menu offering nutritious and delicious dishes. Advocating that diet and nutrition is a key component to health and wellbeing, the F&B programme at Aleenta Retreat Chiang Mai will boast a creative menu of Thai dishes with a contemporary twist, with plant-based, low sugar/carb ingredients using the best local ingredients. For those attending health retreats, nutritionists will be on hand to devise tailor-made diet plans to support guests though achieving their health goals, whether that be to curb the sugar cravings and intake, shed excess pounds, lower cholesterol, or general detox to cleanse.
