I do love chic modern hotels, but do you ever feel they lack something? It's lovely to be able to enjoy modern luxury, but there's also nothing better than a bit of old world elegance and charm, and that's what today's featured accommodation has in bundles.
137 Pillars House is situated in Chiang Mai, seven hundred kilometres northwest of Bangkok. As the unofficial capitan of the North of thailand, Chaing Mai remains a close second in national importace to Bangkok. The house occupies a prime address along the Ping River in the Wat Gate area which was formerly designated to foreigners by the government.
Historians and conservationists worked hard to keep the integrity of the 1889 structure at the house, and the 30 suites are beautifully designed but you still have all the modern comforts you could wish for (including air conditioning; an in room music system, and a personal espresso coffee machine). Oh, and the outdoor shower is a superb addition, and a great way to start your day!
Nothing is too much trouble for the staff here from breakfast in bed, to freshly made sundowners in the bar. They'll even make you a picnic hamper (with champers of course!) to take on your adventures into the mountains, or along the river.
Thailand is a fabulous county, and this could be a great place to stay at the end of your trip. The house itself is beautiful, but the surrounding area is also stunning, as well as being quiet - you'd never think that you were in a city.
