Four Seasons Chiang Mai Style......


You all know that I am nuts for great style......
It would be impossible to share all the photos I took on property because  I never put my camera down.... it was a visual feast. I could go on for weeks but promise I won't.........Editing all the photos and deciding what to share was chore enough, one shot was more beautiful than the other....a simple statue or the endless gaze through the rice paddies. Over the next few days I will finish up with the Celedon Factory (I loved the dinnerware here), a Silk Factory, and a visit to one of the local antique dealer before I head back to Hong Kong. The trip is winding down and I need time to process all that I have seen.

The photo above are the local resident water buffalo. Every morning they are brought to the lobby before they head out to spend the day on a glorious patch of land beyond the rice paddies....it looks like a movie set to see them off in the distance.   I want what the farmer is wearing....great look!


The reception area....... simple and beautiful



Enter...


You don't know which way to look



the detail....



All I want to do is take a photo



a view of the rice paddies


the gardens seem to go on forever


Treasures everywhere

The spa....




Clean crisp white and objects of interest everywhere...


Serene, Peaceful, Meditative


glorious local art.......


the doors....need I say more




They sense I am on overload....I am offered fresh ginger tea and honey, my new favorite!

 now my family is worried,  I want to rip out my marble floor and go for the stones...



Time to head back to the pool and watch the sunset.....



The pool...


grab a seat....


a drink...



and watch an amazing sunset....

It is time for me to rest my weary eyes!
