From the family home of his grandparents, the landscape architect Ariya has created a dream setting for those seeking the peaceful serenity of the ‘land of smiles' in the middle of Bangkok's bustle. At the foot of Sukhumvit, protected by a huge frangipani garden, this villa sets the tone: bucolic tropical vegetation, shaded pool, meditation courses in English given by a Thai monk, and a luxury spa.
The 25 rooms, most with balconies or verandas, exude Thai elegance, with colourful silks, teak parquet floors, and antique-furniture reproductions. The vegetarian breakfast and meals follow the inspirations of the owners, with ultra-fresh products and traditional recipes from different regions of the country.
