Located in the beautiful Mae Rim Valley, Away Suansawan Chiang Mai offers a full range of recreational activities and facilities including two swimming pools, spa treatment and massage, fitness center with sauna, and a lakeside relaxation sala with library.

The resort features just 47 rooms and villas set among enormous gardens with more than 1,000 trees and a lake.
