Stayed here for 3 nights at the start of the spring. Checked in late evening and were given a 'Mountain View room' for one night and a river view room for the rest of the stay - due to availability. The room was somewhere at the backside and I was little worried.. did I pay more for this not so interesting room.. I woke up next morning and with a coffee in hand, stepped out into the balcony.. moved my head to the left - and there it is.. a gigantic 100+m mountain right at the balcony.. as if it grew just now in front of my eyes.. same view on the right side.. just amazing feeling. full of greens and unadulterated fresh breath of air..
The other rooms were even better.. right at the river bay surrounded by the mountains on all sides.. I woke up just to see many couples riding on the bamboo rafts slowly sailing through the sedate river.. Just fantastic..
The food was excellent and customer service was superb.. almost everyone spoke English. and they arrange for transportation for sight-seeing etc..
The entire city is hidden in a nest - sorrounded by mountains on all sides.. that inspired the 'Avatar' movie director.
A must visit city - and if you are here.. stay in this resort.
