Set around a series of enclosed courtyards privacy and serenity are guaranteed. In fact, the hotel almost has a monastic atmosphere thanks to the calming and traditional Lanna architecture - covered walkways, dramatic sloped roofs and the central sala. The body of the hotel is set apart from the hotel's restaurant which is open to non-residents. This ensures that the living facilities within the hotel are reserved entirely for resident guests only.

The Rooms
Rachamankha has 25 rooms - 18 Superior Rooms (32 sqm), 4 Deluxe Rooms (40 sqm) and 3 Suites (100 sqm).

The Superior Rooms open directly onto the main courtyard and offer either double or twin beds. All rooms have been individually decorated with antiques so no room is the same.

The library at Rachamankha is also a definite highlight. Fitted from floor to ceiling with polished hardwood the room is lit by chandeliers.
