“An achingly stylish but laid-back retreat in the fashionable Nimmanhaemin area - perfect for couples of the same description”
The lovely, airy rooms are categorised according to size, though each is individually designed with its own style and inspiration. You'll find austere Chinese touches in Jomfah 203 (Deluxe Room), voluptuous saffron drapes and recessed royal beds in the 2 Superior Rooms, and we loved the outdoor space in Srikhiriya 303, a Deluxe Room at the top of the building. Quite a few of the rooms have a love-nest feel to them, in the best possible taste. Walls are a clean white, with rich colour and texture provided by furniture and upholstery.
For added space guests can choose from the Suite, with its separate living room, or the Family Room which consists of 2 ensuite bedrooms (sleeps up to 4 people).
What they all have in common are soft oriental rugs and a romantic outdoor sitting area that can be curtained from prying eyes, with a love seat or cushioned bench or swing filled with silk pillows or a couple of chairs.
The Samsung flatscreen cathode-ray TVs are the only blight on otherwise perfect equipment. Needless to say, the WiFi signal is flawless, and free. Twin room are available, and bathrooms have an odd sit-down bathtub for small, flat people and some have a separate shower cubicle; aromatherapy candles are provided.
Guest are given a simple breakfast, with options including eggs and bacon/ham, rice porridge, congee (freshly made), toast or French toast and sweet Thai dim sum, as well as fruit platters for all. This is prepared in the small kitchen on the second floor, next to the living room. Guests can use this facility as well.
You sit on the patio, weather permitting, at fashionable spindly iron tables among stylishly straggly plants, listening to the murmur of the water trickling into the little pool. The cups are miniscule.
The original restaurant area has been redesigned as a small lobby lounge; guests can receive meals on request and most dine on the second-floor terrace. Dishes are brought in from nearby establishments. Lunch could be fresh fish with grilled vegetables, salad with mangosteens or perhaps, the signature dish, Fettuccini Nam Puu (black fettuccini with Chiangmai crab paste). Feel free to order your favourite Thai meals - everything can be created for you.
The nearby streets are full of trendy cafes, stylish and cosy garden restaurants with romantic lighting - plenty to choose from.
