Only an hour away from Chiang Mai town center, Panviman Spa Chiang Mai is a great place for anyone planning a weekend getaway to revitalise themselves. I was in Chiang Mai for the month and went away for a girls weekend treat and I can’t imagine doing it anywhere better. Did I mention that the resort is also a spa? From spotting a peacock to chilling at the outdoor jacuzzi, here’s my review of my delightful stay:

I wasn’t joking about the peacock, btw

Panviman Spa Chiang Mai

Let’s escape for the weekend!

Located northwest of the city behind Doi Suthep, it’s smack in the middle of lush countryside overlooking the nearby villages. The resort has expansive grounds on the hill with lush grounds, and you can simply call the reception to arrange for an electric buggy to take you from your room or villa to the rest of the area. They also have a pickup service, with their own mini-van to take you back to Chiang Mai town center.

 

Rooms in Panviman

Can I just live here forever?

There are several room types in Panviman, all with beautiful balconies. There are the Valley and Mountain View rooms and suites, as well as Steam, Jacuzzi, and Pool Villa to choose from. We stayed at the beautiful Jacuzzi Villa:

Panviman Spa Facilities

Swimming Pool

Everything in Panviman is beautiful, and their swimming pool is no exception. With two levels, there are three pools including a kiddies pool and a waterfall. It’s probably the most serene pool I’ve seen and perfect for taking some insta-worthy shots.

You can grab a towel near the bar!

Nearby the pool, there is also a fitness center that’s semi-outdoor. The path behind it leads to a fitness trail, meant to aid your morning exercise with routines suggestions.

 

Meditation Cave

I have to shoot it on GoPro to get the whole space in <3

Another insta-worthy location is the Meditation Cave behind the swimming pools. As the name suggest, it’s meant for meditation, although it’s more of a photographic spot. Note that this isn’t a swimming pool!

 

Spa

Spacious spa lobby

Their Spa is located further down from the Meditation Cave, a beautiful, serene area on its own. With a main lobby as well as an outdoor massage area and individual spa villas. You’d start off in the lobby to choose your massage (and oils if you are getting an oil massage).

Then it’s a quick foot spa before you are whisked away for relaxation. I’d stay around to enjoy the grounds a bit, but be sure to put on insect repellent.

Children’s corner

There are a giant chess set and various other children catered activities opposite the lobby. Panviman runs adventurous activities in the area, too.

 

Lobby

The lobby is connected to the restaurant, an airy space that’s perfect for relaxing and hanging out, especially since they have swing and sunbeds there. I mean, who can resist this place:

It’s also one of the highest points in the hotel and it overlooks the valley as well as the swimming pool:

Food in Panviman

The buffet breakfast is everything you can ask for, with fruit, cereal, cook-on-demands eggs and alternate waffle and pancake day among other things.

Their Vegetable garden!

They even have a selection of fresh juice. A lot of their food comes from their own vegetable garden, with other ingredients locally sourced.

The food are very affordable, with a complete menu featuring local and international food, and some delicious cocktail. They also invite local musicians now and then for a performance outside, though if you are not a fan of humidity and insects, you can also dine inside.
