The staff were attentive and friendly. Lovely resort ambience. Lovely for honeymoon or just to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Room was clean and delightfully cozy. Four poster beds with mosquito netting. The hotel is not located in the city but the hotel staff can call a taxi easily for you. Cable TV works with more than 40 channels. My only woes were the mosquitoes-irritating insects & the school next door. School bell ringing early in the morning wasn't my cup of tea. But overall, a place worth staying to soak in the Thai hospitality.
Unique Quality: Delicious breakfast. You get sweet mango with glutinous rice as well as sausages, toast and cereals. Good start to the day.
Tucked away in the old Chiang Mai’s silver-making district off Waulai Road is a Thai Colonial House named Tri Yaan Na Ros. Here guests can stay in one of only 8 rooms available in beautiful Thai style with excellent Thai hospitality.
Once you enter the reception area you feel you are stepping back in time to the once Lanna Kingdom before it was part of Siam. The first thing you notice is the wonderful decorative antiques placed in just the right areas. The warm smile from the receptionist in her traditional Lanna dress lets you feel at ease. Soft local traditional music smoothes out the checking in process while you sip a delicious drink made from lynches.
As you are escorted out of the reception area into the courtyard the beautiful garden with swimming pool invites you for a relaxing dip. Wicker cloth covered tables and chairs with Lanna Style umbrellas are smartly tucked away amongst the flowers and plants.
After removing your shoes the thick antique teakwood door is opened to your room, which is awash in stunning colors of red and gold. The large canopy covered bed is draped in silk. The bed sheets and pillows are also made of silk. Each pillow has a sweet smelling Jasmine necklace laying on it for you to place around your neck. Although the bathroom is not large it is finely decorated and more than adequate. Fresh fragrant, colorful flowers are in an antique bowl on the bathroom sink counter.
Once you have inspected your room you are taken to the restaurant, which is made with rich teakwood. Again Lanna antiques are everywhere and the walls have photos of Chiang Mai one hundred or so years ago. The food here is very famous with the local people and reservations for dinner should be made in advance. Most guests in the evening like to eat in the courtyard where reservations are not needed.
Unique Quality: On staff are professional massage therapists for the relaxing massage by the pool or in your room. Many herbs and spices are available for your massage and your therapist will recommend which one is best for whatever ails you.
Tri Yaan Na Ros is only a year old so not yet well known by visitors to Chiang Mai. Because they have only 8 rooms you should make reservations well in advance. The rack price is 3500 Thai baht and should rise, as it gets more popular.
Chiang Mai is starting to build more Inns like this as they are becoming ever more popular for the independent traveler rather than the standard high rise hotel.
This is the way people in Lanna used to live before it became part of Siam. They would build a courtyard surrounded by a high wall. Inside the courtyard would be several homes for family members and a communal kitchen. This provides peace and quiet along with security.
There is nothing not to like about this place, excellent.
