Thailand is a beautiful country. Seriously, you hear that a lot but let me tell you, it is frickin true! Is breath taking, mysterious, seducative, a place to travel and be amazed.
And if you go to Thailand then MAKE sure you stay at a traditional hotel. Here is where i stayed and, oh boy, let me tell you, it was fabulous. Just look at the pics …
This is what they have to say :
Experience the ancient city of Chiangmai at Sib San Hotel on the River Ping, a 5 star Lana Style luxury resort, in the heart of this invigorating city of Antiquity, Art and Culture. Surrounded by a moat, and the remnants of the original wall, explore Chiangmai’s dozens of centuries old temples, markets, and tree shaded lanes. A shoppers paradise for arts, antiques and handcrafts, Chiangmai and surrounding towns is a joy to explore.
After a day’s sightseeing, enjoy a rejuvenating massage at Sib San Spa, followed by a cooling swim in the pool.Dining at the hotel offers Northern Cuisine, distinct dishes of spice and exotic flavors and textures, as well as European style culinary creativity.
Sib San Chiangmai is a five star experience. We treat our guests like our family.
Motive no1 : location! Ping River is the heart of Chiangmai. Close to everything. Close to shopping areas and tourist attractions.
Motive no2 : they have a SPA! and what a spa it is….
The pressure and stress of our daily life throw our mind and body off balanced. High blood pressure, increase heart palpitations and weakened immune system are often the price that we pay for our everyday lifestyle. With such disruption in our bodily systems, both our physical and mental health is affected; depression, boredom, low self-esteem and unhappiness. Kalapa spa is a haven of tranquility and pampering. Thai oriental spa hospitality is encapsulated in the quality and personalized experiences of spa treatments and rituals designed to stimulate, soothe and rejuvenate the senses.
With soft flickering candles, oil lanterns and Thai Lanna teas and authentic delicacies, Kalapa spa signature treatments can be enjoyed within its own reminiscence of Thai Lanna setting. The body and the mind are two sides of the same coin; both must be nurtured and neither one neglected. At KALAPA, emphasis is immensely placed on the necessity to keep a balanced state of body and mind. We believe that abalanced mind in a balanced body— and a balanced body nurtures a balanced mind. As a result, good health, happiness, youth and longevity all contribute to the energy that enables us to cope up with such daily stresses ETERNALLY…
In my opinion this is the best boutique hotel in Chiangmai.
