The 137 Pillars House was built around the historic Baan Borneo, which was the Northern Headquarters of the Borneo Trading Company built 125 years ago. In former times, the importance and wealth of a property owner in Chiang Mai was often recognised by the size of their Lanna style Thai houses, and in particular how many pillars (sao) the house had… the more the pillars, the more important you were. Intrigued by the history of the house in the idyllic setting, the new owner decided to emphasize the fact that it was the house with the most number of pillars in Chiang Mai and to convert it into a luxurious haven of tranquility with only 30 guest rooms.
