It is furnished with a generous array of plush sofas and armchairs with deep cushions made for sinking into. The space is stylishly accented with bronze Buddha sculptures and soft area rugs. Original artwork from Northern Thailand adorns the walls around the large dining table of sleek polished concrete.
