The award-winning 137 Pillars House is a stunning 30 suite boutique Hotel with a rich colonial past; built around the original colonial teak homestead which dates back to the late 1800’s. It is located in a leafy residential enclave a few minutes’ walk from the historical Wat Gate Temple, Ping River and boutique shopping area.

The hotel is a member of the prestigious Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH) and has recently joined their Considerate Collection. Sister property, 137 Pillars Suites Bangkok is also a member.

These are pioneering properties proving that luxury is compatible with longevity. Places where we can explore and experience with intention, while protecting its peoples’ integrity. Staying considerate of our common home, wherever we may be. (www.slh.com/considerate)
