Meditation retreat Thailand 

A dream of mine was always to stay at a retreat in Thailand. So I was very excited when The Marndadee invited me to come to their amazing boutique resort. It was so peaceful and quiet and beautiful green! Definitely a treasure to be found in Chiang Mai.

Welcome @

The Marndadee

A little paradise in Chiang Mai

The moment we arrived at The Marnadee we felt so spoiled. The people were so friendly, they did everything to make us feel at home. It felt like we were staying with family because everyone seemed so close to each other. 

We stayed at the beautiful Lanna Colonial Suite. The style of the suite was very romantic and gorgeously designed with art and teak wooden furniture.

Beautiful room

The room had a very luxury feeling, but at the same time, we felt very much at home.

The view from the suite was amazing, green everywhere you could look. Perfect for a meditation retreat Thailand. The bathtub on the balcony was so beautiful, they filled it with flowers, pandan leaves, and limes. It smelt fantastic and was super relaxing. Didn’t want to leave.
