Decorative Influences in the Resort

The resort's decorative style represents traditional Lanna life. The entire resort symbolizes the day to day life of the Lanna community in the Wat Gate area. The resort's pier welcomes guests to the main hall or the resort's lobby. Mira Terrace represents the local restaurants along the river and the swimming pool area represents a local activity area. Not far from the pool, there is a spacious pavilion which symbolizes a crowded community's market by the river. Before walking into the lobby area, there is an arch at the entrance, an activity area, and a mock up of Buddhist temple which give guests a feeling of
serenity. A big Buddha statue is also placed at the entrance to the lobby.

Silver, lacquer ware, wood carvings, and woven fabrics from several Chiang Mai communities are used to decorate the resort. Every area of the resort and all furnishing throughout the resort embody the Lanna heritage.

Lanna is home to several ethnic groups including Tai Lue, Tai Yai, and at least six hill tribes. Each ethnic group and hill tribe has their own unique culture.

The unique character of each group is proudly presented in the resort decoration; the resort's structure, decorative art pieces, furniture, and decor.

The following are examples of features where Lanna style is blended with the resort's design, while still allowing the building to best function as a resort.

The arch over the entrance that imitates the entrance to temples or palaces. We compare the resort to a palace.
