Getting to Seven Senses is easy, just mention YMCA and all the drivers shall take you there. We arrived rather early. As we step into Seven Sense, Ms Munee was there to welcome us. She immediately made us feel comfortable. Ms Munee, the pretty & charming owner then help us to plan thru our holidays, giving lots of advise, tips and suggestion which was very helpful, even though this is not my first trip to Chiang Mai.
Had a very early lunch in their cafe. Ms Munne recommended us 2 dishes, northern & southern food. It tasted great. Coffee was prepared by a partime university student. He made great coffee and chocolate. We then met Mr Duang, the cook. An interesting guy, unfortunately don't speak much of English. These people runs the Seven Senses with great passion as we can definitely feel their warmth.
We were originally booked for a standard double room. Since we are spending time indoors due to the rain, we requested for a bigger room. We had the opportunity of staying in Ayatthuya and Rattankosin. Ayathtuya was great, large room with a mini garden, with a settee. I particularly liked the wash basin area, entrance to the bathroom. Rattakosin was even better, a brighter room, mini garden complete with fountain and small pool. My wife love it so much that she made it a point to switch on the fountain every time when we are back in the room. With spot light on, it's feels so romantic an night. We also love the open bath with the shower made to feel like bathing in a waterfall.
It's fun picking our menu for breakfast daily. My wife love the Muesli and me the toast & jam. We had our breakfast every morning at the verandah. There is this group of squirrels darting from tree to tree using the over head electric cables. We counted six of them, they are grey in color with a golden tail. Guess they are picking the fruits at the large Bodhi tree. We also took part in giving alms to the monks, organized with the help of Ms Munee. To our surprise, my wife had one of her wishes came true!
Mr Duang also doubles as the house keeper. He is always available and very obliging cooking for us at odd hours. Due to the rain, we spent a good deal of our time indoors. There is a 'horn' at the cafe, just 'sound it when you are hungry of thirsty'. There were a couple of times when Mr Duang is already leaving the guest house for his break, yet he turned back just to cook for us. Their charges at the cafe is very reasonable.
Well, all good times still has to come to an end. Shall definitely stay here on my next visit.
