The Luxury Secluded Mandarin Oriental Dhara Dhevi stands among serene rice paddies and lush forest in Northern Thailand. Incorporating the Chiang Mai region’s unique cultural influences, the 33,000-square-foot Dheva Spa houses a sanctuary decorated with ornate Buddhist motifs, a Watsu pool, Vichy showers, and 18 tranquil treatment rooms. The traditional Thai Tok Sen treatment, for example, includes a tamarind tree bark massage and specially treated compresses called luk prakhob.

The Value Available through October, the Spa Indulgence package includes a two-night stay in a luxurious suite, breakfast, and a $99 credit toward any treatment. Package rates start at about $337/night—a steal since a suite alone normally goes for $481/night or more. 

The Catch Expect thunderstorms during the rainy season from June through September.
