Ruang Tawan Hideaway is a wonderful oasis in which to recover from a 30 hr journey from Canada. The place is simply gorgeous, both in natural setting and with its antique furnishings. We had the wonderfully spacious Yellow House--top choice. Ja and Paul are perfect hosts, so nice and considerate. Be sure to eat in the cafe and have dinner at the resort. We had perhaps the best meal we enjoyed in Thailand, and the usual chef had taken off to join the protests in Bangkok! It is a rather costly and long journey into town, therefore difficult to return for an afternoon siesta. We in fact stayed only 2 rather than the 4 nights we had booked, moving to a hotel in town. But that makes for the perfect combination, recovery before tackling the big city.
