Mystic Place, the name itself already conjured up for me, images of magic, riddles, the unknown. I knew I had to experience it.
Coloured glass panels at the living room
So I checked my parents, my sister, my 11 year old niece and me into 2 of the 36 uniquely designed rooms for 3 nights and 3 days when we were in Bangkok last weekend (10th-14th Oct 2012).
Cloured glass panels to Balcony
Shir, Tasha and I ended up changing rooms 3 times. Just so we could truly experience as many as possible. Yes, believe you me, they had allowed and totally expected it.

I actually booked 3 different rooms when I was in Singapore through their website. When we arrived however, we changed our minds about these rooms because they were not suitable for 2 adults and 1 little girl who kicked in her sleep.
Traditional Wall Vents To Toilet. Bird cage to go with theme of room.
Room 402 or The Bird's Nest Deluxe was recommended to us by a truly helpful staff and was the most photogenic room of our stay.
We especially loved the wooden bathtub. Tasha said it reminded her of how the people in ancient China used to take bath, with cloudy water filled to the brim and a wash cloth up and down his or her back. Both her mum and I laughed and agreed. That was from the countless martial arts movies that we had watched.
This was the floor tile in the bathroom and they had a matching sink.
And I just had to take a picture of this vintage toilet roll holder for all my shabby-chic loving friends.
Mystic Place is for someone who loves everything vintage, rustic and unconventional.
We moved to a pink Mickey Mouse room for the next 2 nights. Tasha loved it because it had a swing hanging from the ceiling. I forgave the pink because Tasha finally slept in her own mini bed and I, fitfully without being kicked.
