A great way to experience the cultural and scenic highlights of Thailand is with a private tour that combines three of the most iconic luxury resorts: the Four Seasons Resort Chiang Mai in the mountainous north, the historic Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok hotel in the vibrant Thai capital and the beachside Amanpuri resort on the island of Phuket in southern Thailand.

Four Seasons Resort Chiang Mai

The Four Seasons Resort Chiang Mai is set in tropical gardens and surrounded by mountains and terraced rice paddies. One of Southeast Asia’s most atmospheric resorts, it’s both a luxurious hideaway and an ideal base for exploring the culture and history of Chiang Mai and the surrounding countryside.

Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok

Many of our private tours of Thailand begin in Bangkok, the fascinating capital. The legendary Mandarin Oriental, a repository of Old World elegance on the banks of the Chao Phraya River, is one of our favorite hotels in the city.

Founded in 1876, it has hosted many literary icons and cultural luminaries over the years, including the likes of Joseph Conrad, Somerset Maugham, Grace Kelly, Lauren Bacall and Sean Connery.

The hotel has an acclaimed spa, luxurious guest rooms…
