Sublime settings and authentic experiences...

For an authentic Thai experience, combined with famed Four Seasons service, choose this luxury Chiang Mai resort. Locally inspired pavilions and villas are set amid 30 acres of tranquil tropical gardens and rice paddies, while fabulous facilities at this countryside retreat include an impressive spa, interactive cooking academy, mindfulness programmes and incredible kids' club. With every corner of the resort a delight, which are the most irresistible, 'Instagrammable' spots?

1. The Lower Pool

Whether for a revitalising early-morning dip, relaxing afternoon of sunbathing or the perfect sunset shot, the lower pool is bound to inspire. The infinity-edge hangout overlooks the tranquil rice terraces that surround the resort and out towards the magical Mae Rim Valley. With daylong poolside refreshments and to-die-for foot massages, we bet you'll struggle to leave...

2. The Rice Paddies

Offering an authentic Thai retreat and an air of tranquillity that's hard to describe, the resort is set amid enchanting emerald rice fields. While lovely to look at, the verdant fields also offer a truly immersive local experience, as working rice farmers tend to the paddies each day. A fun-filled, educational and rewarding activity for all ages, you can don traditional Mor Hom clothing and join the farmers as they transplant sprouts in the gloriously green terraces.

3. The Orchid Nursery

A new addition to the private dining options at the resort, the beautiful open-air Orchid Nursery combines plenty of privacy with a natural outdoor setting, surrounded by greenery and tropical flowers. Whether you fancy an Afternoon Tea with forest-grown leaves and quirky treats inspired by Alice in Wonderland, or a family dinner for a special occasion, this serene setting is the perfect choice.

4. The Yoga Barn

Start the day serenely with a guided session at the open-air Yoga Barn, set amid the picturesque paddies and beside a completely calming lake dotted with blooming lotuses. The expert resident Yogi will help you perfect the art of mindfulness, helping you to breathe properly, strengthen your body, rebalance your nervous system and find your inner calm.

5. The Rice Barn

Traditionally where the rice harvest was stored, the Rice Barn is yet another dreamy spot for private dining and culinary experiences, overlooking the tranquil lake and rolling rice terraces. Feast on a locally sourced breakfast, linger over a leisurely lunch, take a northern Thai cooking class, or enjoy an elevated, street-food-themed dinner inside the Lanna-style teak house, surrounded by beautiful banyan trees.

From driving along the sun-kissed California coast and whale watching in Canada, to swimming with turtles in Barbados, cookery classes in Oman and touring temples in Thailand, I've enjoyed some amazing experiences around the world. With a genuine love for all things travel, I can't think of anything I'd rather do than research, experience and share incredible destinations, luxury hotels and bespoke adventures.
