A lovely Lanna style inspired retreat with a lush tropical garden with Frangipani and other pretty flowering trees and other lush green foliage around the pool and paths, and even it's own rice paddy.
Our Deluxe Lanna room was spacious and clean with lots of warm wood and Lanna style touches, with a large bed and a separate bathroom that included a lovely deep bath on one side and a glass shower enclosure on the other, we had a private balcony overlooking an ornamental pond populated with big goldfish and more lush tropical garden around it.
The spa experience was blissful, our chosen option starting with a herbal foot scrub, followed by a warm milky bath strewn with dark pink flower petals, slices of lime and pieces of pandan leaf, leaving the skin soft and warm for the following massage - I chose Royal Thai style (I would decribe this as being like having yoga done to you - if you know Thai massage you know this) and the other half a "Panna Lanna".
The breakfast buffet was quite extensive, from cereal to cold cuts to a range of hot dishes from Eastern to Western styles and a manned egg station where you could order them how you like (over easy, poached, etc.) and they were prepared and brought to your table, of course fresh tropical fruits and juice were also a feature. The lunch and dinner buffets also had a good variety of tasty selections.
The free shuttle available on a shedule to key tourist sites (8 seater tuk tuk) was very convenient. (although pre -booking recommended) but also only about 160 baht to get your own to and from the city, and the staff were always helpful with our queries and needs, and just have such a lovely gentle way about them.
They also had a great happy hour deal (we favoured a pina colada or two, yum), and they were also offering a free mini massage when we strolled through the foyer one evening (seated and clothed of course). The air conditioned business room in the foyer was a welcome relief from the heat while waiting for a tour collection or using the free lobby WiFi (a couple of computers in there available for use too).
We did take our 40% deet Bushmans insect repellant with us, as it is tropical heat and bugs in May in Chang Mai (but nice and cool on a tour of Doi Inthonon).
Thanks again to the lovely staff for our enjoyable 5 night stay, including the fun Naan!
