I am sitting outside my room of the Rimping Village right now, relaxing on the terraced area where they have placed very comfortable chairs. It is raining, but I am comfortable and happy, looking out over the pool. I just had a delicious breakfast with excellent latte, fresh fruit, eggs made to order, and lots of other options. My room is huge, the internet has been fast and reliable, the staff accommodating. I am within easy distance to some great areas for walking around, including the night market and many delicious food options? Chiang Mai, as is true seemingly everywhere in Southeast Asia, has a zillion massage places, so I went to one recommended by the hotel where I got an hour long amazing foot massage for $8, and then later on that same day a 90 minute full body Thai massage.
The front desk made arrangements for me to have a tour yesterday, and they also have a fleet of bicycles to loan out to their guests... although, please take care because inexperienced riders may been intimidated by the crazy traffic patterns and bumpy road surfaces.
My only minor quibble was with my shower; only in the sense that the water pressure was so unpredictable here that showering becomes an adventure; shivering cold water that suddenly becomes scalding hot then goes cold again, all within the same minute. So, whatever...
This place is a true gem. 5 stars for sure.
