“July to September is the best time of the year to enjoy the greenery of the rice fields, not only at Four Seasons Resort Chiang Mai but throughout Northern Thailand,” says Chief Gardener Pornpoj Peerakham.
Lush and magical, nature paints Northern Thailand’s landscape in unimaginable shades of green as the “glorious green season” sets in. Four Seasons invites travellers to experience this beautiful time of the year in its soothing sanctuary of wellbeing with a special experience.
The Glorious Green Season offer has been designed to help guests relax, recharge and fully immerse in the stunning scenery of the Resort – slip on traditional Thai clothing to experience rice farming first hand, in the shallow waters of the paddies; go on a sensory Nature Trail to discover exotic plants and flowers through touch, taste and smell; or simply relax with an added Resort Credit of THB 6,000 that can be utilised at the spa or restaurants.
Spread across 32 acres (13 hectares), the Resort features verdant gardens and terraced rice fields, with mystical mountains forming a picturesque backdrop. Wandering trails crisscross the grounds, making it a delight to go on long walks in the company of nature.
“We plant khao niew sanpathong at the Resort – a native rice that is locally grown in Chiang Mai,” explains Pornpoj, adding, “The cycle of rice cultivation can be compared to human life – each stage has its own unique charm and beauty, and our Resort looks different during each phase. The rainy season is the most important part of the rice cultivation cycle – our farmers are happy to share this immersive experience with our guests.”
The Glorious Green Season offer may be booked online.
