New York Perfect Summer Evening

New York Perfect Summer Evening by www.carlosmeliablog.comNew York Perfect Summer Evening | New York, United States | This is what I call a New York perfect Summer Evening. Drinks at my favorite Manhattan hotel The Mark, over filthy Vodka Martinis EXTRA olives with my FAB client, planning her next trip to South East Asia. After that walk back home strolling by the Central Park. Now cooling off at home while writing this brief post and off to dinner to Taboon with Rubin and our good friend from London.  Couldn’t be better, couldn’t be happier. CM @ Carlos Melia Recommends

Four Season Tented Camp Thailand

Four Season Tented Camp Thailand  |Golden Triangle, Thailand |  If there was a hotel I visited in 2011, that went above and beyond any expectations, was the Four Seasons Tented Camp at Golden Triangle in the northern region of Thailand, right on the border with Lao and Burma.

How would I define and summarize this experience, simply like this… train to become a Mahout, live with the elephants in full luxury, enjoy all-inclusive adventures, spoil yourself at their full service outdoor spa and dine like a king or queen.
