We were hesitant initially, despite the reviews to come to stay at this wonderful place, because the price and the raving reviews simply do not go hand in hand! However, our stay at our first stop in Chiang Mai gave us more than what we expected! 3 things that are highly commendable about this resort.
1) The honestly best Thai food we have ever tasted!
Prepared with love and superb culinary skills by a 76yrs old Auntie, and her loving husband, whom we call as Uncle. You must read the review below for description of the food... I cannot say it any better. The food's gotta get into your mouth for you to believe it. :-) Throughout our 3 nights at Romyen, we had 3 dinners! 2 suppers! and 1 big lunch!! And every meal was different and every dish tasted almost perfect to the tastebuds.
2) Great Host!
Tim is really really helpful and in Singlish (we call it "ching chai"), which means easy-going. She will help you out with almost any of your request most willingly and promptly. And the workers who help out at the resort, even though they do not speak English, you can tell that they are honest good people making a decent living, and respect their job. Good honest people.
3) You must ask Tim to recommend you to Thai Massage (His name is "Nut")
So far, anyone who has been "touched" by Nut says this:" I wish I could bring him home with me to my country, so that he can massage for me everyday!!" And it is only 200baht per hour... for such high quality massage. My goodness!!
Here goes! Hesitate no more.... Go for Romyen Gardens. This is my first ever review written for any resort despite my frequent travelling... I think it says a lot about our experience here.
Happy holidays! And Happy New Year!!
