Thailand’s Meliá Chiang Mai has unveiled a ‘hotel within a hotel’ called The Level that sets apart 43 rooms and suites as well as a private lounge and a host of bespoke privileges.
Housed on the upper floors of the 22-story urban hotel, the level’s rooms and suites afford some of the city’s most spectacular views.
Guests staying in The Level experience an upgraded level of service and benefits, including exclusive access to 21stfloor executive lounge The Level Lounge, which offers all-day snacks and beverages accompanied by panoramic vistas of the city and famed Doi Suthep Temple on the mountaintop to the west.
Tucked under the hotel’s 22nd floor 360-degree rooftop bar Mai The Sky Bar, the highest bar in Chiang Mai, The Level Lounge is a visual marvel. Guests enter the venue under an arch that pays homage to a nearby temple. In a salute to Chiang Mai’s Bo Sang Umbrella Village, large installations of illuminated umbrella ribs cling to the ceiling. Various artworks of umbrella canopies hang on the walls, such as those made from antique Chiang Mai textiles. The carpet’s concentric patterns, in the likes of gun-metal grey, periwinkle and soft amber hues, reference umbrella tops in a striking yet subdued way.
A private breakfast service, afternoon tea, and cocktails and canapes for adults only are among a raft of The Level privileges. A superior level of personalized service encompasses private check-in and check-out, and unlimited access to The Level Lounge, as well as a dedicated concierge service. In-room services include welcome amenities such as fruit, Nespresso coffee machines and coffee capsules, and late check-out until 2pm subject to availability. Guests also enjoy complimentary use of The Level’s meeting room for two hours per stay and a 10% discount at YHI Spa.
