137 Pillars House Chiang Mai champions greener stays

137 Pillars House

Going green at 137 Pillars House

The luxury 137 Pillars House boutique hotel in northern Thailand is embracing greener stays by joining the prestigious Small Luxury Hotels of the World’s Considerate Collection.

The elegant heritage property is built around an original teak homestead that dates to the 1800s in a leafy residential enclave of Chiang Mai.  

The Considerate Collection was launched by SLH in 2021 to champion greener stay options. The collection celebrates environmentally-led efforts by luxury hotels within the group and currently counts 59 properties as members. 

137 Pillars House supports a number of sustainable programmes under three core initiatives, including local procurement and environmental and social responsibility. Actions run from using locally sourced fruit and vegetables, fostering local economies and showcasing locally made products in the hotel boutique, to offering a plastic-free laundry service, in-suite water in glass bottles and sustainable in-room cooling and supporting and raising funds for a number of local charities. The hotel has even created its own museum in a bid to preserve the history of teak, a commodity once hugely important to the local area. 

“We have a duty of care to our community and the wider world to assume the role of custodians of our local culture, architecture, waterways, forests, animals and environment and ensure that the generations that follow inherit a world that we would recognise and want to live in,” said 137 Pillars House general manager Anne Arrowsmith.

Rates at 137 Pillars House start from US$550 per night, including breakfast.
