Marion Vogt

A new hotel is being built in Chiang Mai, on the corner opposite the Alliance Francaise and the well known Italian restaurant Piccola Roma. The projected completion is January next year, and to make the deadline, work is being carried out, non stop, 24 hours a day.

The Chedi Chiang Mai is now under construction.

Eleanor Hardy, the General Manager says that GHM hotels are characterized by individuality and style, with each hotel providing a comfortable retreat where guests can enjoy intimate, elegant accommodation and personalized, yet unobtrusive service.

The GHM group was established in 1992 by a group of experienced hoteliers who made it their goal to develop and manage a selected group of hotels, resorts and clubs in prime locations. Currently they manage hotels like The Datai, situated on the north-western tip of the Malaysian island of Langkawi; The Legian on Bali, an exclusive 67 suites resort on Seminyak Beach; The Strand in Myanmar, which is again an all suites hotel, located in the main commercial and diplomatic district of Yangon.

In Thailand there is already The Chedi Phuket, 110 thatched cottages overlooking Pansea Bay with another in Oman.

Mrs. Hardy indicated The Chedi Chiang Mai will feature 52 deluxe rooms over 50 sq. m each, and 52 100 sq. M suites with a separate Chedi Club check-in and special services, aiming to provide the ultimate in holiday luxury. It will incorporate two small meeting rooms as well as spa facilities, with 11 treatment rooms.

The decor will fit the Northern region, Lanna and Colonial style, and the 250 seat restaurant will create a link between old British and new contemporary Lanna style.

GHM’s vision for The Chedi is to create unique guest experiences in style, in a comfortable, yet affordable environment.
