Anantara celebrates new Chiang Mai and Hua Hin air route with Air Asia

Anantara Chiang Mai

Anantara is celebrating Air Asia’s inaugural flights between two of Thailand’s most popular tourist destinations, with a host of extra benefits for guests staying at Anantara Chiang Mai and Hua Hin.

The new flight between Chiang Mai and Hua Hin is conveniently timed with Friday and Sunday flights to maximise relaxation and sightseeing between both destinations, giving weekends away to explore the northern old city’s famous walking streets and Lanna temples or the south’s beachfront destination of choice for Thai royalty and aristocrats for nearly a century.

Guests who book the new 1 hour and 5 minute flight and present their boarding passes during booking at Anantara Hua Hin and Anantara Chiang Mai will be given a 15 percent discount on the best available room rate, and on all food and beverage and spa treatments. Guests will also be treated to complimentary breakfasts, transfers to and from the airport and a complimentary glass of sparkling wine or house wine upon arrival to celebrate the new route.

Recently named the number one resort in Southeast Asia in the annual Travel + Leisure 2020 World’s Best Awards, Anantara Chiang Mai is conveniently located on the banks of the Mae Ping River, giving easy access for guests to explore the old city, artisan villages and mountain hill tribes.  Anantara Hua Hin Resort is modelled on a traditional Thai village with low-rise gabled pavilions set among lush tropical grounds with lotus-filled lagoons and meandering pathways through exotic foliage set against the relaxing wide stretch of shoreline.

Both resorts have implemented Anantara’s Stay with Peace of Mind programme, with enhanced health and safety measures that have been certified by the Tourism Authority of Thailand. In addition to enhanced levels of sanitation to ensure guests’ health and safety throughout their stay, social distancing has been implemented in all public spaces, and maximum flexibility is offered for rebooking stays.

Thai travellers are also encouraged to take advantage of the government’s Rao Thiew Duay Kan offer, which covers 40 percent, or up to 3,000 THB per room, per night. Guests will also receive an e-voucher worth up to 600 THB per night to spend on dining, spa or however they please,

FD3900: Chiang Mai – Hua Hin every Friday & Sunday / 09:40 – 11:00
