I stayed at M. Henry's fabulous private residence at the Four Seasons Chiang Mai last month and it was flaweless. Not only was it a an incredible deal, about 1/2 the price as the 4, but Khun Nui was an amazing host! The Four Seasons has villas/residences and Mr. Henry owns one of them and you can use the entire resort! My friends were staying at the Four Seasons and since I was going solo, I decided this would be a good option. I had a nice upgrade to the Balinese suite but to be honest, didn't spend much time in my room because Chiang Mai is such an gorgeous place and there are tons to do! Khun Nui really watched over me and was so kind and professional. I will definitely come back!
2 standout things to do: We went to the Katara Elephant sanctuary, which is further away from the more popular/tourist one but really worth the extra, and the chefs table for dinner at the four seasons (cooking demos, you dont cook, just watch) was mind blowing, gorgeous setting with the outdoor cooking / dining area and the most attentive staff you can ask for.More
