This 20-acre resort set above rice terraces is "absolutely gorgeous." Accommodations replicate a Lanna village, and most have paddy views and "a sala to watch the water buffalo being fed and groomed." Gardeners make certain "each flower is properly positioned." "Nothing is too much trouble for staff if it makes your stay more pleasant." Sip a mango sticky-rice daiquiri at Ratree Bar.
