Meliá Chiang Mai Celebrates Slow Travel with Long-Stay Perks - TOP25HOTELS.comAs an increasing number of travellers embrace ‘slow travel’, Meliá Chiang Mai is offering a host of benefits ranging from discounts on spa and dining to access to its executive lounge.

For stays of seven days or more, the urban hotel’s “Travel Slow in Chiang Mai” package affords guests daily 20% discounts on YHI Spa treatments, minibar items, laundry, and food and beverage at the hotel’s two restaurants, two bars, lobby lounge and in-room dining.

Drawing on Meliá’s Spanish origins and celebrating Spain’s famed gastronomy, Meliá Chiang Mai’s dining landscape features restaurants Mai Restaurant and Bar and Laan Na Kitchen, bars Mai The Sky Bar and Tien Pool Bar, and lounges Ruen Kaew and The Level Lounge; the latter a 21st-floor executive lounge with panoramic views of the city.

Featuring seven treatment rooms designed in an underwater theme and a Thai herbal sauna and steam, YHI Spa uses ancient Asian healing wisdom combined with modern wellness techniques. Its broad spectrum of treatments includes massages, body scrubs and wraps, facials, hydrotherapy, manicures and pedicures.

Guests staying in The Level Room categories, including The Level Premium Room, The Level Premium Corner Room, The Level Suite and The Level Presidential Suite, also enjoy exclusive access to 21st floor The Level Lounge, which offers all-day snacks and beverages accompanied by panoramic vistas of the city and famed Doi Suthep Temple on the mountaintop to the west.

The executive lounge’s amenities and experiences include a private breakfast service from 7-10.30am, afternoon tea from 2.30-4pm, and cocktails and canapes for adults only from 5-7pm.

Tucked under the hotel’s 22nd floor 360-degree rooftop bar Mai The Sky Bar, the highest bar in Chiang Mai, The Level Lounge is a visual marvel. Guests enter the venue under an arch that pays homage to a nearby temple. In a salute to Chiang Mai’s Bo Sang Umbrella Village, large installations of illuminated umbrella ribs cling to the ceiling. Various artworks of umbrella canopies hang on the walls, such as those made from antique Chiang Mai textiles.

Fresh complimentary fruits in the room on arrival and a late check-out until 2pm are also among long-stay benefits.

“If you want to stay in one place for longer on your travels, Chiang Mai is the ultimate slow travel destination due to so much to see and do, ranging from the Old Town and incredible Buddhist temples to bustling markets and then elephant sanctuaries and night safaris,” said Meliá Chiang Mai’s general manager Marc Selinger.

“Our ‘Travel Slow in Chiang Mai’ experience encourages travellers and digital nomads to make the most out of their time in this charming historical city and its reinvigorating mountainous surrounds with all sorts of pampering perks at our hotel.”

Guests staying for two weeks or longer also receive one-time access to Mai The Sky Bar and a cocktail on the house.

Meliá Chiang Mai is located on the lively Charoen Prathet Road by the River Ping and Night Bazaar. With a design that pays homage to contemporary aesthetics and Chiang Mai’s charming history and culture, Meliá Chiang Mai is located six kilometers from the Chiang Mai International Airport, near an array of tourist attractions including the Old Town with its ancient moat and red-brick walls and the city’s oldest temple Wat Chiang Man.

The 20% discount applied to food and beverage excludes alcoholic beverages. Late check-out is subject to availability.
