There’s an on-site organic vegetable farm at @panvimanspa where they grow the majority of the produce served in their open-air Panorama restaurant with strictly eco-friendly and non-chemical practices. Their commitment to sustainability is also at the core of their staffing policies. Over 90% of the employees at Panviman Chiang Mai Resort live in the surrounding villages and are members of Thailand’s many diverse hilltribes.
Taking in the breathtaking panoramic views of the agriculture terrain of the Mae Rim Valley from the @panvimanspa the Hilltribe Terrace. The mountainous area has certainly earned the nickname of ‘heaven in the hills.’
The massive plush bed at @panvimanspa is certainly fit for a queen. Do you drink your coffee in bed? It’s one of my many guilty pleasures.
Do you know how to drive a motorbike? 🛵 It’s the main method of transportation in many of the places I’ve been in Southeast Asia but I still haven’t really learned how to drive one. Someone made me feel like I wouldn’t be capable of it so I keep avoiding it. It’s a big goal of mine for 2019 to conquer the fear and learn once and for all–I miss the independence that having two wheels gives you! Plus, it’s a major money saver as taking taxis or local transport everywhere can quickly add up.
Power from the sky, blessings from the earth. ✨

The majestic buildings at @panvimanspa were built to reflect traditional Lanna and Ayuthaya Thai architecture styles and are sprinkled around the sprawling luscious landscape in a manner that compliments nature rather than obstructing it.

Have you ever had a Thai massage? The treatment at @panvimanspa was the best in the world. Viman Spa has received the Thai Spa Excellence Quality Standard Approval and is regarded as the 4th best spa in Southeast Asia and 2nd best spa in Thailand. The gorgeous open air spa is tucked away in the vast greenery of the resort in a quaint oasis surrounded by lush jungle and serene lakes. The open-air treatment rooms allow for a cool breeze to tickle your skin as talented technicians maneuver your body into ancient Thai massage postures that make your body feel so brand new. My masseuse was firm and sturdy in her touch and managed to relive my body from tension. 📷: @laughtraveleat
