Inspired by the Lanna Thai style, five private villas have recently been completed at Four Seasons Chiang Mai

Artistically recreating ancient Lanna style,  the concept of the Residence Villas was inspired by the well-known company Bunnag Architects Int'l Consultants and the Architect of Record was Nava Design Studios. In the traditional Lanna Thai style, the main pavilion is part of a cluster of smaller villas that house guest suites, kitchen and other facilities. Blending the renowned aesthetic of the period with all the amenities of a modern way of life, each Residence Villa commands its own private estate complete with heated infinity pool and Jacuzzi and overlooks the tranquil rice fields of Chiang Mai.

Inside, the Lanna influence has been interpreted by Abacus Design in the curved ceilings that complement the arched windows and niches, as well as the decorative doors and shutters ornamented in the goldleaf designs. A blend of waxed wooden floors and large area carpets lend a luxurious base to carefully selected and superbly comfortable furnishings. Decorative artifacts have been expertly selected to recreate the grandeur of the civilisation.

Each Residence Villa is enclosed in its own individually landscaped garden created by Bill Bensley from Bensley Design Group Studio. Natural streams, boulders and a diverse selection of plants combine with original Bensley Lanna-style garden elements, sculptures and garden lights. Another signature Bensley touch are the bronze medallions on the bottom of the swimming pools.
