Customized services are in great demand in every kind of business and service. It is only natural that the same is expected from the hospitality industry and wellness services. The increase in demand for personalized services and products has given rise to boutique resorts that are fast replacing the cookie-cutter resort services. Boutique resorts are a favorite amongst people looking for a private and intimate atmosphere that caters for them in just the right way.

Boutique Resorts generally have fewer rooms and a more eclectic design giving them a distinct personality. You will remember the unique decor and distinct identity of a boutique resort much more than the rather bland uniform designs found at commercial resorts. They also have a more relaxed and inviting atmosphere which give a better chance for guests to interact with one another.

Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand has many beautiful boutique resorts where you can take a vacation and have a good time. Here are 3 things to keep in mind while choosing a boutique resort in Chiang Mai.

  • Your Budget: Boutique resorts have a cozy atmosphere and distinct decor and they also offer personalized attention to their guests. However they often include world class amenities and service. These need not come at a higher price than other, more commercial resorts. Look for package deals that will give you better value and help with your vacation budget.
  • Location and Services: Once you have a list of the boutique resorts that interest you it is important to examine their locations. If it is a little bit away from the from the city center it will probably afford a more relaxed atmosphere and be surrounded by nature. Many boutique resorts offer a free shuttle to the city center anyway so you can get the best of both worlds. Prices are often cheaper as you move away from the hustle and bustle of downtown.
  • Reviews and Recommendations: Chiang Mai is renowned for its boutique resorts and it will be very easy to find online reviews of the ones that you are interested in. By doing a bit of in-depth research on the boutique resorts available it will make your choice easier.

Many boutique resorts are run independently without any affiliation with a major chain. When you stay in a boutique hotel, you will not feel like you are sleeping in just another hotel room
