From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:

At the Villa Water Orchid, the intimate B&B-style experience goes considerably upmarket, thanks to an Irish owner who has filled this four-suite inn with stylish treasures from her travels in Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. Frangipani, heliconia, and mango trees dot the property's 1.2 manicured acres, located 25 minutes from downtown Chiang Mai and near a national park known for its hot springs and nature trails. There's no TV or in-room Internet in the golden silk-clad guest rooms, but tinkling cowbells and the sound of chanting monks all provide a relaxing accompaniment to days spent lying on plush chaise longues around the infinity pool and lotus pond, or in front of the fireplace in the main building. A hearty breakfast is included in the room rate (along with airport transfers), but the real culinary treat takes place around the outdoor barbecue pit, where local prawns and seafood are grilled nightly.

—2008 Hot List

When to go: The coolest days fall from December through January.
