ITINERARY BOOK
 


This journey has been personally designed by Nattinee Kulsin, Born in Sukhothai and Head Concierge at Secret Retreats

All our itineraries have generally been constructed on the basis of the rooms that have the most charm or best view, and not necessarily the first prices, nor the most expensive suites.
We can of course adjust according to your request.

What separates us apart from others? Secret Retreats creates tailor-made journeys. Passionate about travel, Secret Retreats will design and create the perfect journey to match both your time and budget.

This program is for travellers willing to absorb true Thai culture “sabai sabai” as the Thai say - leisurely. Discover country side life in a village by a river with no set agenda. Just go with the flow.

Your Journey Day by Day

from 700 USD /person for 3 days / 2 nights

based on 4 people sharing the whole villa

 

 
Day 1 : Bangkok Ayutthaya - Suphanburi – The Bohemian Residence (-/L/D)
On arrival at Bangkok Airport (or departure from your hotel) in the morning you will leave with your driver, transfer without guide, to the north to the Suphanburi region (about 2h30 - 3 hours). A few kilometres before the residence, you will alight from your vehicle and climb aboard your boat, which will take you up the river, passing by small villages and beautiful landscapes filled with rich bird life along the way before arriving to the private jetty at « The Bohemian’s Residence ». Your private 2-bedroom villa overlooks the river and includes a living room, terrace, swimming pool 13.5 x 3.5m and garden. The boat is available anytime and the housekeeper is at your service, discreet but always present. Your guide is also on hand if required. Afternoon tea and dinner will be served at the villa, poolside, riverside or in the dining room as you prefer.
Lunch and dinner served at the Villa.
HOTEL: Bohemian’s Residence (Villa)
Day 2 : The Bohemian Residence (B/L/D)
Day at leisure.
You can spend your day as you want as mentioned below. Unless you prefer doing nothing at all and just relax in your villa by the pool. If you wish, you can get up early and participate in the daily alms ceremony held right next to the residence. Witness the procession of monks donning saffron coloured robes and silk umbrellas, as they offer up their alms bowl so that the villagers (and you if you wish) place rice into their bowl as an offering. Afterwards, you can go back to sleep, or go for a swim before breakfast. Unless you prefer going to fish with a local, some famous river prawns, then learn how to cook authentic Thai food. It’s up to you. Walk or bike ride around the village and explore the paths along the rice paddy fields in the heart of the country’s rice bowl. Head to your private jetty to take your boat up the river along the peaceful banks to see the houses and temples. You may stop at a local restaurant by the river to enjoy the local food before going back to your villa by boat. In the afternoon have a snack, work out at the gym and play petanque. If you prefer to just stay “at home” enjoy a fruit juice or tea and relax, or step out to learn more about the life, activities and customs of the local villagers.
Lunch at local restaurant by the river (or in your villa) and dinner served in your villa.
HOTEL: Bohemian’s Residence (Villa)
Day 3 : The Bohemian Residence - Bangkok (B/L/-)
Depending on the time of your flight or your next destination, you can still enjoy the pool and the surroundings. If you leave in the afternoon lunch will be served in your villa. After a last dip in the pool, you shall depart the residence, leaving this peaceful village and heading back to Bangkok: transfer without guide to Suvarnabhumi airport and flight to your next destination or drop off at your hotel in Bangkok.
