Romyen Garden is idyllic ! The garden itself is beautiful and well-tended to , the bungalows comfortable with a nice, simple furnishing. The staff who attend to the daily cleaning and upkeep are pleasant and always helpful . A relaxing atmosphere reigns here and it soon takes you in, the same seemed to go for all the other guests we met here during our three week stay.
The trip to Chiang Mai takes about 30 min. by 'song tao' bus which pass regularly along the highway about a ten min. walk away along a country road past rice-fields and a local temple sporting an impressive giant, pink and white Ganesh ! There are charming walks to be taken turning right out of the resort giving open views of the beautiful, lazy-looking mountains not far off .
On the walks back in the evening the intensity of the shrill serenade of the crickets has to be heard to be believed ! it calms to a rhythmic soundtrack for the evening meals we loved to take on the restaurant veranda. Evening meals ! ? ! read major,incredibly relishing culinary experiences ! magically created by Tim ,but her Auntie likes to join in too sometimes. Tim, apart from being a cooking ace- big time - speaks English fluently and converses easily with everyone having a great sense of humour !
There are no city or traffic noises here at night and we always slept very well , the animal calls or the rain having a lulling effect. Like the crickets in the evening, the crazy birdsong you waken to in the morning is unforgettable. We plan on returning to Chiang Mai next year and we are coming back here.
