The best spot for pizza Lovers in Chiang Mai! Delicate taste for picky ones. Truffle and wild mushroom combination just blow our minds. Definitely recommended for anyone looking for memorable experience

We were staying at Akyra Manor for 3 nights. Their food was beautifully cooked and we tried both their Thai and Italian offerings. The pizza was the best we have had outside Italy and the Thai dishes were sophisticated and delicate - you must try some to appreciate the difference between fine cuisine and more ordinary versions of classic Thai recipes.

However, we particularly recommend taking a cookery class with Phubase, Akyra's Executive Chef. We went with him to a local market to choose fresh ingredients before going into the restaurant kitchen to learn how to create 5 Thai dishes. We then ate these for lunch. It was an exceptional experience and one of the highlights of our trip to Thailand.

The Rise rooftop bar is a great spot in the evening to try some of their signature cocktails and enjoy the glass-fronted swimming pool.

I also took a mixology class with the chief barman at Rise rooftop bar: I learnt to make two of their signature cocktails and afterwards shared them with my partner. I would highly recommend this to anyone wanting to learn about some sophisticated tips to creating smart cocktails. We even filled a glass with cinnamon smoke to give a finishing touch to "One night in Chiang Mai"!

Akyra Manor, Chiang Mai, is the place to stay at, the destination to eat at and the venue to drink at- on the rooftop overlooking the beautiful ancient city of Thailand.

The hotel itself oozes style and class, while being a frontrunner in modern design and customer-focused experiences. Meanwhile, the rooftop bar is a delight: something you will talk to your friends about at home. If you're lucky enough to stay at the hotel, you can sample a cocktail just after you go for a dip in the pool -built in a see-through container so guests outside the pool can see underwater- which is stepped just above the rest of the bar. If you're staying elsewhere in the city, you can still go for a drink poolside in the evening when the rooftop transforms into a trendy cocktail space, made for mingling and swooning to tunes.

As for Italics- well this restaurant offers authentic Italian that is second to none in Chiang Mai. The ingredients are sourced locally, are seasonal and fresh. This adds a lot to the flavour of the dishes, which is increasingly becoming a staple for locals in the know. The good thing about this restaurant is that you can also try authentic Thai dishes, made with seasonal produce by a local Thai chef. The Khao Soi is a must - it's Thailand's version of laksa (it tastes better than a laksa). It's creamy, spicy, salty and sour: just as it should be. The chicken served with the Khao Soi falls off your chopstick. It was a real curry soup delight.

The breakfast served at the restaurant was unbelievable: a real show-stopper. The chef exercised class and restraint in providing all diners with a 'high tea' selection of Thai and Anglo breakfast treats, served on a high tea layered tray. Diners then choose a dish from the seasonally variant menu - my tip is to try anything with truffle in it: it really enhances the taste of the eggs (my top pick is the crab royal: crab meat, avocado wedges, poached egg, hollandaise sauce and truffle vinaigrette on toast). The dishes are not too big: they are filling, generous and exceptionally well sized to make a diner feel full but not sick.

This place is a must to visit. If you can't stay overnight, at least try and indulge in a cocktail on the rooftop or a breakfast (or nightime pizza) at Italics.

The Rise rooftop bar is a great place to stop for a drink during their happy hour. There is a wide range of drink options to choose from. Along with a selection of great food dishes from the Italics restaurant in the lobby. Would highly recommend stopping in for a good meal and drink!
