Calator in Thailanda 19. Orchid Hibiscus Guesthouse, Sukhotai / Traveller in Thailand 19. Orchid Hibiscus Guesthouse, Sukhotai

Orchid Hibiscus Guesthouse is a B&B situated not far from the Historical Park. I booked it on internet and paid 3000 bht (aprox. 73 euro) for 2 nights, for an apartment for 4 persons (we have been 3). Breakfast costs 100 baht/person/day, and it is worth to have it.

The owner is an Italian, called Paolo, established in Thailand long time ago. He is a nice person, full of suggestions and advice for the guests. He offers to make transport arrangements with the locals, be it to the airport, bus station or visits in the surroundings. Paolo speaks English, French, Thai and, of course, Italian.


The accommodation offers a number of bungallows in a splendid garden, as you may see from the photos bellow. A swimming pool is a nice asset. The trees, flowers, little ponds, birds, and different decorative objects in the garden, make the place a little Paradise.
Orchid Hibiscus Guesthouse este un B&B aflat in apropierea Parcului Istoric Sukhotai. Despre acest loc a scris si ziarul britanic The Independent, in martie 2009. Proprietarul sau, italianul Paolo Bigolli, locuieste in Thailanda de mai multi ani, impreuna cu sotia sa thailandeza. As putea spune, fara exagerare, ca pensiunea este un loc de vis, in care poti petrece mai multe zile de vacanta, lenevind pe marginea piscinei. O familie de nemti, care locuiesc momentan in China, spuneau chiar ca - de cativa ani -  isi petrec concediul la aceasta pensiune.
Eu am gasit-o pe booking.com Am dormit aici doua nopti, platind in total 3000 bht pentru o camera de patru persoane (73 euro). Era forma de fapt despre un apartament cu etaj mansardat, aflat in zona anexa. Puteti servi si un mic dejun delicios, daca platiti suplimentar 100 bht/persoana/zi (2.45 euro), ceea ce noi am si facut.
Si pentru ca tot vorbesc despre anexa (situata vis-a-vis de corpul principal de bungalouri), sa vi-o si arat:
 intrarea in zona anexa
 loc de odihna pe marginea piscinei
 alt loc de odihna...
 
Intram la receptie, in zona principala, pentru a-l gasi pe signor Paolo. Un om jovial, amabil, plin de sfaturi si sugestii pentru oaspetii sai. El face si aranjamentele necesare pentru transport la autogara sau aeroport si pentru vizitele in imprejurimi, vorbind la telefon cu localnicii.

Bunul sau gust in amenajarea spatiului este evident. Copaci si flori inunda gradina. Cateva bazine mici adapostesc flori de lotus. Orhideele, care dau si numele pensiunii, sunt la ele acasa in gradina. O voliera cu numeroase pasari (multi papagali) inveseleste atmosfera. Zone cu hamace sau chiar un jacuzzi, stau la dispozitia oaspetilor. Vase de piatra sau din argila, raspandite cu mestesug prin gradina, dau o nota aparte.O plimbare aici este binevenita, fie ca e dimineata devreme sau seara, spre apus.
