Let's get the minor negative (location) out of the way first. Ruen come in is located on the outskirts of the city down a dusty road which requires a taxi ride to and from the city centre but the negatives stop there!
This place is INCREDIBLE!!! You are treat like a king when you stay here. The staff are so attentive and polite and are always there for you without ever feeling like they are over bearing which is a very hard thing to do.
The building itself is sensational. The smell from the wood when you enter makes you think WOW and the look, character, atmosphere it creates is something else. The gardens are beautiful with amazingly stocked koi ponds. The small pool/jacuzzi area is more than enough for the size of the place and is very well kept.
The food is SENSATIONAL at any time of the day - breakfast/lunch/dinner.
The main reason this place is as good as it is is really down to one person - Mai the owner. She is so proud of her business/country/culture and it emanates in everything at this place. We booked onto the Thai cooking course (something I've always wanted to do) and it was amazing. Mai whisked us off to the local market where she was known by all the stall owners. We had a fascinating time choosing all of the ingredients before heading back to the hotel and cooking it all in the outdoor kitchen that her staff arrange for you. We swopped and made cocktails as we cooked and made and ate some amazing dishes.
I cannot rave about this place enough if you are going to visit Chiang Mai and want a fabulous experience you just have to stay here!!!
