This is a lovely, upscale, well located, well maintained and well run resort, right on a small stretch of beach just south of the main area of Mae Head (wherethe piers with ferry boats etc. and the town are), close enough to walk to "town" in 5 minutes, yet far enough away to feel "away from it all". Guests stay in teak, wood and stone bungalows, many of which are tiered up a hillside. Ours was above the reception, up a good many steps, at treetop level. We could sit on our veranda and watch the birds and squirrels, with the ocean in the background. The king size bed with netting surround was romantic and the room and bathroom and shower modern, and comfortable. AC was fine and there is a safe and small refrigerator, robes and slippers, beach towels and sarongs.
Each morning we descended the stairs to the beachfront, open air restaurant, under thatched roofs and lingered over the lovely buffet breakfast and tea or coffee, while chatting with fellow travelers, reading the Bangkok Post and gazing out to sea. Some days we stayed on property for most of the day relaxing on a chase lounge or thatch roofed bed on the beach or in the same poolside. Sometimes we ordered lunch on the beach or poolside. Occasionally we ate dinner in the restaurant on premises, but usually walked a short way into town to try various restaurants or for street food.
The grounds are lovely, with orchids everywhere and variety of tropical foliage, all well cared for.
A short walk down the beach road got us to all the restaurants, shops, dive shops, and massages that Mae Head offers and we even walked to Sairee one day.
Sensi Paradise proved to be the perfect start to our month long Thailand vacation, allowing us ample time to get over our jetlag and to relax into vacation mode.
Book early, especially for high season. They are often sold out months in advance and when a vacancy occurs the rates are 40% or more than for early bookings. (We paid $75 per night - breakfast included.)
