Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This was our last stop on our travel through Mae Hong Son. Phu Pai Art Resort was a welcoming and a relaxing stay on account of the large and clean bungalow, and a very green view of mountains and rice fields. Do request a bungalow with the view! The bungalows were quite distanced from one another giving you the feeling of being on your own property. Just by taking in the view already rejuvenate the life back into you!
The resort does have a pool with a nice view of the landscape but the weather was a bit too cool for a dip while we were there. We did try to get some fresh coffee from the dining room but they only offered instant coffee, we ended up going into town (4-5km) and found a really great coffee barista (Jespresso), in a van, opened from 5am-8:15am, and with great people relations.
The room was quite comfortable and large with plenty of sockets for those who can't get away from it all. They do have free wifi. The bathroom had separate shower and tub with plenty of hot water for that cool days. One draw back with our stay was that they ran out of water on the morning of our leave (only in our bungalow). The excuse was they forgot to pump the water into the tank the night before. Terrible...no excuse for that! One more thing, the road into the resort was quite small. I don't know how cars can pass each other if there was to be traffic coming from another direction. I guessed they expect guests to be coming on bikes or something.
Overall it was a worthwhile stay considering the scenery and comfort. Do try to visit especially for the scenery and the relaxing feel of the place.

This hotel is about 4km from the centre of Pai. It's set amongst the rice fields and has a beautiful pool. Quiet and clean, it's an idyllic retreat if you want to go and relax in the Pai valley.

Let me start by saying you will absolutely like this hotel. I have been thinking long and hard about how to rate it though because it has so much going for it, yet there is so much missing as well.

The view from the infinity pool and the deck of your room (if you have a Rice field view) is absolutely mesmerizing and we could enjoy it for hours. For this alone I would recommend staying here and would give it 5 stars

BUT
There is something missing, and that is service and the feeling that you are welcome. There was only 1 girl at the reception desk who actually was friendly and helpful and thought one step ahead. The other staff only bothered to help if you particularly asked everything yourself.
We are absolutely not "keen on high service" people, but what we experienced here was very "un-Thai".
When we came to the reception the Guy behind it often would not even take notice of you or would go on doing other stuff making you feel you were not there.

Breakfast was always cold, and not many choices for Western people. Not something we were looking forward to in the morning.

The hotel seems to cater to a lot of Asians (especially Japanese and Thai when we were there). Maybe that also made us feel a bit like outsiders or something.

The pool is wonderful but here things could also be so much better. First of all drinks are not allowed so every time you are thirsty you have to walk up to the restaurant and sit at a table, and someone brings you a menu etc etc. Very not relaxing at all
Then there is the music; the kept on playing the same sad piano tune all the time. Even at breakfast. Really, that tune kept haunting me even after we had checked out. I would suggest no music at all or if there has to be music than something more cheerful and definitely more variety.

Rooms are nice but can use maintenance.

Location: We rented a motorbike from the reception which made the ride to Pai an easy 7 minutes. (We also took it out to see the Lod cave, wonderful ride!). We had dinner every night in Pai. If you don't want to ride a motorbike the hotel also has a shuttle every hour that costs 50 Bath per person.

All in all we loved a lot about this place, yet were disappointed as well. Mostly because of the staff who did not seem to care. If you let that go though and not expect too much extra's it is a great place go stay

Roomtip: if you stay in a Deluxe room ask for one in row D1 - D10. Those all have ricefield views. We stayed in D15 and it was breathtaking to wake up in the morning to that view of the rice farmers being busy and the mountains in the background.

A quiet, relaxing stay surrounded by padi fields, flowers, picturesque Mountain View.

Spacious room, a big double bed I got. Such huge toilet, shower room, wardrobe room, you can even party in it. However, it does look maintenance is in need of a catch up. Wall painting has fallen off, wooden fixtures are rotting. It’d be better to tile the shower room. Hot shower doesn’t work most of the time, it’s either too hot or just too cold. Dirty and old curtains.

Breakfast is simple, limited array of western, local selection. They do provide a wide selection of western, local food though out the day at an affordable value.

Staff are generally hospitable, except the reception. For strange reason, Thai hospitality of 1 particular reception staff is questionable.

This resort is a far away from city center, about 15mins drive to town. They do provide free shuttle service to the city center at a specific time. It is recommended to have your own transport. That said, tuk tuk service is stationed here.

Given the price that I’d paid here, I’d rather stay elsewhere. This resort is poorly maintained.

I have visited Pai on my personal trip during X'mas in December 2011. I got my booking confirmed by reservations team in Bangkok and fully paid before I left Australia. I know that from X'mas to New Year is the peak season, especially for the Northern part of Thailand as Pai is one of the tourist destinations for Thais. It won't be easy to find hotel on the spot.

On that day we got to Pai about 9.30pm, had dinner in the town city and by the time we got to the resort (4km out of the city centre) was 10.30pm. We were extremely tried from a long drive and looked forward to straight off to bed. Got to the resort, gave front desk staff a hotel voucher, he replied "we don't have your booking and all rooms are fully booked!!". Very unprofessional manner, imagine about 7 staff were staring at you and didn't know what to do. One of them made a phone call to their manager who was currently not in duty. She advised them to ask me to come to check out a room at her place (yes, her personal place) which located at the far end of this property, about 3 minutes drive away from the main part of the resort in the middle of nowhere. She offered us to stay at one of the room upstairs, otherwise she will make a booking at Krating-Pai resort for us instead. Krating-Pai resort is much closer to the town centre but it will be another 10-15minutes drive. Considering it was nearly 11pm and we were extremely tried. We decided have a night in that room and left early in the morning. Honestly, the room was nice and the house is next to Pai river; however, it is a personal room (not a spare room with someone else stuffs in bathroom and wardrobe). In the morning, we drove back to the resort area and had a quick breakfast (very basic selections). I had another chat with the hotel staff before we left and she advised that they had received a request from my reservations team but were waiting for reconfirmation (which is very weird). Anyway, I informed my Bangkok team, sent through a complaint and they finally offered a full refund for my booking (accepted it was their mistake).

Sadly, I am unable to say good thing about this property because I had no chance of using other services except their basic breakfast.

Make sure you reconfirm your booking beforehand!!

As in Pai you can get so much cheaper -nicer and closer to the centre as well- stays than at Phu Pai Art Resort, I expected something special and was quite disappointed as soon as I got there; the staff is only able to speak a few prepared sentences in english, therefor not able to answer questions ('nocannot') or react to concerns, there is NO internet in the Resort and as the place is way out of the Village (about 10min.by car, you need a lift every time you want to go to Pai) you can't get any connections. the whole Resort seems to fall apart and is not well taken care of; the swimming pool furniture is rotten and super dirty, there are no sunshades, my room door was split into two halves, etc. The breakfast buffet was gone at 9.30 even they tell you the buffet is open till 10am and was also very poor with some fluffy toasts, jam, unripe fruits and cold fried eggs and some incredibly sweet cane juice.
As they advertise to offer horse riding, I thought on my second day I will give them a last chance before I leave and will try out the horse riding, one of the reason why I came there (on the website it looks quit professional). But as it showed up, that was the top of the letdowns; the ponies (NO horses!!) -to be exact THREE ponies- are the height of about a meter and in a bad shape, the guide couldn't speak ANY word in english and he wasn't able at all to control HIS pony, which wouldn't want to walk forward (only back) that in the end I led him (!!), the tour was one way for and back and only in step pace and the ponies are not trained at all, so they kicked and bit all the time. I think it is quite dangerous what they do, if I picture some people could send their kids to ride the ponies.
Therefor I left on my second day against my booking of a week and they didn't (couldn't??) ask why. So I definitely can't recommend that place at all and as I saw a few places around here by now, you can find something with the same gorgeous view to treat yourself better and don't waste the money in this bad ART? hotel.

Set just a few kilometres from the cenbtre of Pai, Phupai offers a range of self-contained bungalows with views of mountains or the river. Here you can fall asleep to the sounds of the jungle and wake up to see mountains. It was quiet when I was there but gets busy at the weekends.
Great service and a peaceful location make this a treat. And if you need to go into Pai they will drop you off and pick you up. On the downside you may not find anyone here who speaks English.

Absolutely love this place. I've been lucky enough to book it again this December after worrying I wasn't going to get a room. The villas/bungalows are a great size with a more than generous bathroom and dressing room. The pool is clean and well maintained with beautiful views across the rice paddies and looking onto the mountains. Would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Pai

We arrived late the night staff were amazing! Until they asked us if we were high!

We got a great room with a view. In the morning my neck & back pain from the concert bed ruined my intire day.

I come back to after a massage in town because you don't have pricing or information in the room and it is only 7am to 7pm (fair enough).

I jumped in what I thought was a corner spa but is only a bath so I then jumped in the amazing shower and saw the clump of hair someone left on the window seal and the cleaners missed.

Earlier in the day I asked about washing they said no, I thought how rude not to support a local I would be happy to pay if they offered the service to a local even if it took 24 hours.

Breakfast was poor at best two fruit. Precooked eggs ham in water etc.
All in all very beautiful but not worth the location and hassle.

Did I mention the very skinny horses that's a sad site for any animal used as a lawnmower.
