Raya Heritage is an upscale hotel set outside of the city of Chiang Mai along the Ping River that aims to weave traditional and sustainable Thai food-growing and customs, artisanal craftwork and eco-conscious practices into a memorable stay for visitors to northern Thailand.

Located about 8 kilometers from the core of Chiang Mai, Raya Heritage has built itself into a luxurious hotel experience that provides all amenities for guests looking for a relaxing stay with accessibility to the city center via the hotel's complimentary shuttles that run frequently to and from their sister property in the city's core. 

The hotel property's design and decoration is influenced heavily by traditional Thai artisanship, with rooms falling into three styles of suites, Rin Terrace and Huen Bon Suites (both 75 square meters) decorated with handwoven textiles, baskets and wood carvings made by Thai artisans in the nearby highland villages. Each suite has a balcony overlooking the hotel's lush landscaping, infinity swimming pool and the Ping River. The Kramm Pool Suites (100 square meters) each contain their own private swimming pool located outside the room's sliding doors.

Raya Heritage has a strong eco-conscious ethos incorporated into their building and rooms. Guests are offered the use of reusable cloth bags during their stay, and rooms are each provided with a selection of organic fruit and fresh natural cut teas and flowers for making their own warm teas from. The hotel operates an organic garden onsite, from which food is harvested for their restaurant.

The Khu Khao Restaurant serves a breakfast, lunch, dinner and weekend brunch menu, sourcing ingredients from local organic farms and the hotel's own onsite garden. In addition, the hotel also has a cocktail bar with indoor and patio seating and a tea room set on a balcony overlooking the river. 

Additional amenities include an exercise room, an infinity swimming pool and lounge terrace, and a spa and steam room where massage therapists invoke traditional healing techniques and treatments.

Raya Heritage caters to those interested in outdoor pursuits and activities by offering a variety of active and cultural tours from the hotel. Tours booked through the hotel include national park, hiking, rock climbing, rafting, elephant experiences and temple tours. Cultural tours organized through the hotel include handicraft making, bamboo weaving, and excursions into local markets. The hotel also hosts Gentle Flow Yoga classes on weekends.

Raya Heritage will also be opening an onsite boutique where artisanally-made decorations and crafts displayed in their rooms are offered for sale.

Raya Heritage's staff is extremely attentive, with their restaurant inquiring about diet preferences prior to ordering. Each of their staff had a level of fluency in English, making communication generally smooth. The hotel is an ideal choice for those looking for an upscale stay in the Chiang Mai area which offers outdoor and cultural excursions to regional sites of interest, while maintaining an environment specializing in the treatment and relaxation of vacationing guests.
