137 Pillars Hotels & Resorts has been passionately curated on the foundation of the historic Baan Borneo at 137 Pillars House Chiang Mai. This original teak homestead dating back to the late 1800s has a rich colonial history and was the former headquarters of the East Borneo Company. The Leonowens and Bain family lived there, as well as their famous partner Rajah Brooke.
The website for the new brand, www.137pillarshotels.com will be live from 17th April 2016.
