Peaceful hotel with great massages
I wanted to relax before the work week, so booked 2 nights at the Aruntara Riverside Boutique Hotel. It was exactly what I was looking for and away from the noise and touts of the old town area.
I stayed in a Deluxe Room and got the wind themed style with white walls, tiled floors, a soft bed (by Thai standards!) and TV/DVD player. It was very peaceful with a window into the courtyard filled with trees.
The swimming pool is a bit small, but it's still nice to have the option of taking a dip or relaxing with a book poolside. My favorite thing about the hotel was definitely the Thai massages - very relaxing and it even included a foot massage.
