Ever lusted over those super-exclusive, equally expensive X2 boutique hotels? Well, now the rest of us can have a go thanks to the brand’s new cut-price offering in Chiang Mai.
With opening rates at just B1,300 net including breakfast, X2 Vibe Chiang Mai Decem Hotel (053-214-828, www.x2vibe.com) combines the same designer-y sense of style as its sister properties—beds floating in the middle of rooms, industrial fixtures, glam bathrooms—only this time in a proper 72-room hotel built around a swimming pool courtyard and lofty vertical garden.
It’s all just steps from Maya shopping mall—not the sexiest direct location, but right on the doorstep of the hip Nimmanhaemin neighborhood. Rooms on the higher floors also get bonus views of Doi Suthep Mountain.
