Best luxury 5 star hotel Chiang Mai


A modern interpretation of Thai Lanna beauty, everything about this Luxury Boutique hotel Chiang Mai represents a higher level of luxury. This Thai villa and holiday resort is an exclusive sanctuary of complete serenity, striking beauty and gracious service. This private luxury villa outside Chiang Mai gives a whole new meaning to the private boutique hotel concept.

Every day you will wake up among the lush green foothills of the Himalayas outside Chiang Mai and appreciate staying in the magnificent surroundings of your own Chiang Mai Thai Villa.

We specialize in impeccable service, spectacular gardens, award winning architecture and delicious authentic homemade Thai food which are all inclusive! This is all enjoyed in the utmost privacy which is not available in other Chiang Mai luxury hotels!

Each pavilion houses its own tucked-away accommodation, including a large three-bedroom compound for families and a romantic stand-alone villa with an outdoor shower and lily pond views.

Complete Privacy

There is never more than one family or group in residence at any time thereby affording you complete privacy at your own boutique hotel in Chiang Mai.

Howie’s HomeStay is a gated, private, luxury Thai villa.

Staying here means you have the entire holiday resort for your private and personal enjoyment. The owners and hosts, Howie and Jerri, spent seven years and millions of dollars creating this paradise of open-air pavilions, amazing romantic gardens, and Royal Thai Lanna styled villas, and now they are opening their home for exclusive use as a Chiang Mai Luxury Hotel.

Featured in many luxury designer magazines, Howie’s HomeStay is one of a kind Thai villa and luxury resort in Chiang Mai, giving new meaning to a private boutique hotel in Chiang Mai and spa.

Given that guests have the property completely to themselves, they are encouraged to spend time as they wish, swimming in the pool, and socializing with the hosts.

Where Are We?

Our Chiang Mai luxury hotel is located in the Mae Rim valley just 30 minutes from the city center and it shares the same valley as the Four Seasons Resort. It is set in five acres of private, masterfully landscaped lush tropical gardens. Perfect for a Honeymoon, family reunion holiday, friends get together or just a private get away.

The surrounding countryside of Howie’s HomeStay is an exotic and colorful region of jungle clad hills, fertile valleys, and ancient temples. It has breath taking mountain views, a huge infinity edge swimming pool, ponds and water features.

This should be your first choice when looking at Luxury Thailand resorts for your holiday.

A Chiang Mai luxury hotel set in the foot hills of the Himalayan Mountains is the perfect Holiday Resort.

We are one of the few Chiang Mai 5 star hotels located in the countryside so you really get to experience the diverse flora and fauna that make this area so exciting.

Perfection and Pure Bliss
“The service was beyond a 5 stars. We have been lucky enough to travel across Asia and enjoy the finest Asian hospitality, but at Howie’s we got to another level of personal care and attention”

One of the greatest experiences of our life
“We expected to have a very good time but we never expected to have one of the greatest experiences of our life. The property is one of the finest homes we have ever seen in our life. We have traveled all over the world and stayed at many five and six star hotels and resorts. This is absolutely in our top five. The property is incredible. Jerri does all the cooking. Not only is she a great chef, she is also a wonderful person.Some of the best Thai food we have ever eaten. ”

Dream of a lifetime
“Since then I’m thinking every day at Howie and Jerri and how to be able to describe this magnificent place and these so special persons – for me it was a lifetime dream to go to Howies Homestay and I was a little afraid to be disappointed after having read all those brilliant reviews- but it was even better than any review.”

Spectacular experience in every imaginable way, nothing else compares
“This stunning property offers the best of a five-star experience without any of the down sides (primarily, other guests!). The superb hospitality of both Howie and Jerri was akin to nothing you could find at any other resort or villa. The value makes it worth every penny spent, and the experience of our private oasis in the Mai Rim will never be forgotten! ”

Most Luxurious, Relaxing and Authentic Stay in Thailand
“Howie’s Homestay may be the most luxurious, yet private and comfortable vacation you could probably take in Thailand, and possibly anywhere.
While we were hesitant to book because of the price, we had heard so many great things from friends and colleagues that had stayed, including a couple who even had a private Thai wedding ceremony there. It also is worth every penny for the experience and everything included.”
