Even from a distance, the 3-storey villas look like a glorious mix of a bubble dome, and an actual loft unit. From ฿4,800 (~USD138.49)/night, you’d get to spend quality time here, just reconnecting with nature.

With its open-concept and minimalist decorations indoors, the space invites you to relax and release your stress via – wait for it – outdoor bathtubs.

We love that it’s placed extra strategically on your private balcony so you can take a warm bath while you enjoy the view.

The interior of the bubble domes are also nicely decorated with white furniture and fairy lights – setting the scene for a much-needed city getaway.

Once you’re done settling into your rooms, make sure to indulge in the food selections they have here. Spoiler alert, we spy some sizzling hot BBQ skewers and good ole’ Mookata. Yum.

Being further up North means that you can expect the weather in Chiang Mai to be slightly chillier. This means that nothing hits the spot better than being able to enjoy a sizzling mookata or a BBQ session with your friends to truly experience glamping.

If mookata or BBQ isn’t your thing, you can also opt for their juicy and well-marinated pork ribs.
