Is all this teak making you peaky? Well, Chiang Mai isn’t just the old-fashioned doll you thought she was – towering over the hectic Night Market is ultra modern, uber design-y hip cat, the Dusit D2.
Depending on how far you want to crank up the funk, voguish, airy rooms all come in a clean, light palette, but different options offer distinct artsy accents, from bright orange to muted earth tones. The Studio Suite, however, is a trendy mix of the two styles with a living area and bedroom separated by a full-length sliding door, plus full access to club lounge benefits like complimentary WiFi and use of fitness centre, snacks n’ sips throughout the day, preprandial tipples, and private check-in/out.
The contempo vibe continues throughout the curvalicious outdoor mosaic pool, The Devarana Spa (which will customise treatments to suit your zodiac sign), swish after-hours imbiber Mix Bar, and eclectic resto Moxie, named Thailand’s best restaurant in 2012 by Tatler. Slam dunk that funk!
