Athita The Hidden Court is a delightful family owned and locally staffed 9 room boutique hotel located in Chiang Saen in Northern Thailand's Golden Triangle. Inspired by its Lanna, Northern Thai, heritage, the design of Athita The Hidden Court pays homage to the vernacular design of the region with their use of locally hand-made bricks and teak wood, the same building materials that have built homes, temples and pagodas in Northern Thailand for many many centuries. It is this charming and timeless building style that ensures a strong sense of place is shared with guests at Athita. The hotel's 9 rooms feature traditional northern Thai design notes to celebrate the roots and heritage of Athita.
