facadefacadefacade

Rachamankha is much more than just a hotel. It is an experience. For the owner, who are two of Thailand's most famous designers and architects, it is a creation of love and a treasury of Lanna art and Chinese antiquities, which can be found in every guest room and throughout the hotel. The combination of Lanna art and interior design, and the temple style architecture has created a haven of peace C the kind that penetrates you and touches you heart. This is an ideal hotel for people in need of rest and relaxation.

The design of the hotel is taken from the viharn (chapel) of one of Thailand's most beautiful of temples, Wat Phra That Lampang Luang in Lampang province, which is why the hotel look and feels like a temple. The hotel is planned according to ancient principles of Chinese architecture because the architecture and interior designer want the hotel to reflect the Chinese roots of Thai architecture. The interior design is based on northern Thai Lanna culture, which is a of Chinese, Dai, Laotian, Lua, and Burmese culture. This accounts for why the hotel is full of Chinese antiques and exemplifies the art and architectural features of all of these cultures. Altogether, the hotel is a cultural masterpiece.

One of the uppermost aims of creating the Rachamankha was to enable tourists to experience C feel and touch C genuine Lanna culture, even though it will take many years to recoup the enormous cost of construction and decoration. No expense has been spared to create this experience, and indeed, many items of Lanna furniture and many of the decorative pieces of Lanna culture were bought in China, Burma and Lao.
