Aleenta, which means “a rewarding life,” has served as the hotel collection’s manifesto since its launch in 2006 with the inaugural Aleenta Hua Hin Resort & Spa. Committed to offering a five-star experience, Aleenta Resorts are anchored upon spacious suite accommodations, premium design, exceptional F&B, first-class facilities and holistic retreat programmes for ultimate wellness uniting the mind, body and spirit. Situated between the ancient city of Chiang Mai and the region’s lush countryside, Aleenta Chiang Mai has geared towards the health-conscious traveller seeking the ultimate relaxation, holistic rebalancing and an authentic Thai hospitality experience.
The resort has 44 rooms and suites, a restaurant, bar, spa and wellness centre offering tailor-made wellness programs and retreats. The guestrooms, one- and two-bedroom pool residences, and a four-bedroom teak villa with a private swimming pool merge traditional Thai design with tech-savvy facilities. Highlights include an expansive open-air restaurant enveloping the reflection pool and courtyard, an upstairs tea room and piano bar, a spa and wellness centre, a library and an art gallery in reclaimed golden teak wood period structures.
Aleenta Retreat Chiang Mai was built from reclaimed wood as a low-rise property to protect the local ecosystem and topography. There are many initiatives in place to source locally, recycle, conserve freshwater supplies, reduce its use of carbon-based electricity and engage with the community. Aleenta continues to improve and support the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals across the brand.
The resort is home to the brand’s signature Ayurah Wellness Centers, offering a range of holistic wellness retreats and tailor-made programs. Guests can enjoy complimentary daily yoga, Qi Gong, meditation and mindfulness classes alongside these offerings. Among the programs are Mind Balance, which combines natural healing and Thai Holistic Medicine over five nights, and Detoxification, designed to address the symptoms and underlying causes of burnout.
The Total Immersion Yoga program spans seven nights and incorporates movement, mindfulness and coherence. Healthy Living, available nightly, is designed for those living with diabetes or those who may have a tendency to develop its symptoms. For those seeking to overcome personal barriers, Self Love offers three, five, seven, 14 or 21-night programs that include coaching, breathing, balancing and guided meditation.
The resort’s Mindful Vipassana Meditation program spans three nights and trains the mind to improve emotion, awareness, concentration and happiness. Guests can also choose to attend the retreat at the nearby Wat Ram Poeng temple. Retreats include healthy cuisine and a wellness cooking class, besides nutritionist-led plans with plant-based options. To achieve optimum wellness and balance, Aleenta Retreat Chiang Mai also offers the opportunity to work with a resident master healer, doctor, nurse and nutritionist.
The Garden restaurant offers breakfast, lunch and a refined menu in the evening. Menus have been curated to provide nutritious dishes that preserve the flavours of traditional Northern Thai Lanna cuisine alongside Western cuisine with a Lanna twist. The Garden refrains from using imported products and focuses on sourcing local produce. Plant-based, keto and low-sugar/carb options are also available. At the 1892 Bar, guests can relax on the balcony overlooking the resort’s garden while enjoying a selection of snacks.
