X2 (Cross To) Chiang Mai Riverside Resort enjoys a leafy location and elegantly designed spaces perfectly suited to intimate escapes, whether guests are enjoying a weekend hideaway or spending extended quality time with close friends and family.

The resort's contemporary take on heritage design and tranquil setting lends itself perfectly to shared moments. The luxury urban resort feel, combined with proximity to the river, offer a unique, seductive escape. The first meal of the day is a private buffet served at the table with a la carte selections adding to the gourmet morning experience, which sets the scene for an indulgent riverside stay.

"Peaceful morning views greet guests when they wake at X2 Chiang Mai Riverside Resort and we encourage them to start the day with an unhurried morning as they enjoy a lazy bubbly breakfast on our river view terrace," says Ewan Taylor, the resort's General Manager.

After a delicious meal under the resort's 100-year-old tamarind trees, guests can wander through the heritage-inspired grounds taking photos, then stop in the serene inner courtyard to boost their luck at the wishing well before heading to the river for a leisurely stroll along the bank that takes them past village temples, local houses and waterfront gardens. Active guests can make use of the resort's canoes to view and take photos of the charming riverside from a different perspective.

Following an exploration along the river bank, the tranquil surroundings of the resort's spa beckon yet more relaxed indulgence with professional therapists on hand to work their magic. After a rejuvenating massage, guests can linger in the relaxation garden to gently wake from their blissful daze with organic herbal infusions.

Private cabanas by the rooftop swimming pool offer semi-private nooks to enjoy a lunch that's designed to be shared. By late afternoon, the fiery colours of the sunset are best with a refreshing cocktail in hand. Then as the day turns to dusk, the fiber optic star lighting in the pool adds shimmer to the evening views.

For guests looking to find privacy, all the suites at X2 Chiang Mai Riverside feature spacious balconies with inviting day beds. Pool Suite River View guests also enjoy the added luxury of a private swimming pool to take a dip under the clouds or stars.
