Design Destinations – Siam Style

Oozing chicness and boasting artsy, creative locales, these luxury hotels are worth the trip in themselves.


The Land of Smiles is fast becoming a quick getaway for Singaporeans from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, and the opening of Akyra Manor Chiang Mai provides yet another alternative for a relaxing vacation

Located in the buzzworthy boulevard of Chiang Mai’s Nimmanhaemin Soi 9, the neighbourhood is reminiscent of quirky Williamsburg in New York’s Brooklyn. The resort-style establishment touts an elusive “courtyard-within-a-room concept”, where each room has its own individual bathtubs to give guests an outdoor feel while indoors. With bespoke guided tours that highlight an authentic Chiang Mai experience connecting with the locals, the contemporary hotel is set to become the newest hit in town.
