This resort is PERFECT if you have your own transport. It’s about 5-10 min drive from central pai and the drive has some lovely views. Rooms are homely, very clean and large. They were also really well sealed so insects did not get in, which isn’t always the case when staying in Thai-style huts!It’s set in a lovely garden with a large pond. The breakfast was delicious - you make your selection the night before. Noi is good fun and really informative. She told us which places were open and shut (because of covid) and gave some great restaurant recommendations. Thank you Noi!
What an absolutely magical place.. . I had never been to Pai before & decided Valentine's Day Weekend would be a good time as any to do so. So I figured a nice, quiet & dreamy place was in order. #SelfLove When I arrived I took a taxi from the city center to the resort. Upon my arrival they helped get me settled & situated - from picking my breakfast for the next day & scheduling a scooter drop-off for me to rent. I'm pretty thankful I taught myself to ride a scooter several months ago, because it certainly came in handy here. It took me about 15 minutes to get to the city center, but I absolutely LOVED the drive. The roads were usually quiet & you can appreciate the countryside, too. I loved riding early in the morning or in the evening when the air was deliciously cool. The resort itself is lush & peaceful. (There's fish in the waters!) My bungalow was perfection as I could watch the sunset from my porch. People say you can go to other places around to watch the sunset, but I thought it was amazing there. If you walk out of the resort & to the left, you'll have an open field with some ox & the mountains. Enjoy exploring around! The bed & pillows were cozy & comfy enough for me. And everything was so spotless & clean! I would have loved to have stayed there forever, haha. I thoroughly enjoyed waking up every morning to breakfast. If I was there longer, I would have tried them all! But I enjoyed the Rice Porridge Breakfast Set & French Toast Breakfast Set. It was all so delicious & flavourful! On my last day, the owners were gracious enough to take me themselves to the city center to catch my minivan back to Chiang Mai. Extremely kind & wonderful couple. And their personalities shine through in their love & care for their resort. If I ever come back to Pai, I will certainly be choosing Pura Vida Resort once again!…
This is a lovely little hotel. We had our own bungalow and the room was very clean, with a comfy bed and a good shower (hot and good water pressure!) . The only downside to this hotel is how far it was out of town. Pai is a small town and we didn’t realize until we were there that it would’ve been nice to be able to just walk to town. The owner is incredible nice and very helpful she gave us a rundown of all the things to do in the area and some great restaurant recommendations. Overall, I would definitely recommend staying here!
Set just outside of Pai town centre - away from crowds - we loved this resort. The chalets are cosy and spotlessly clean, windows are fitted with insect screens, we saw no mosquitos in January. The grounds are immaculately maintained and the large pond full of fish, so peaceful you could hear a pin drop no nearby roosters or dogs barking. Tea and coffee making facilities, bottled water too all topped up daily. Breakfast is good, a small choice selected the day before dining. The muesli with fruit and yoghurt was really good, omelette too. If visiting during cooler months take warm clothing. Breakfast is served on a deck overlooking the pond, it was very cold, 14 degrees Celsius up to 32 Celsius by 1pm. Noi, the owner is a delight, we fell in love with her. Her customer service skills are second to none, a fabulous personality. Transport is needed if staying here. We hired a motorbike for the duration of our stay and Noi dropped us at the bus station when we left. We will definitely stay here again when visiting the area. …
I found the great reviews on this place on trip advisor and decided to stay here. I was so fortunate to pick this place! Made my stay in Pai a wonderful one. I came for a night and stayed 4 nights. It’s the kind of place you just feel at peace in. Truly feels like a home away from home. The rooms were spotless and charming. Great bed, great hot water, great air con if you need it. These are all the things I look for in a place I stay. It had them all ✅✅✅✅plus a great breakfast made to order. So much better than the a typical hotel buffet. The staff attentive and take care of you as the owner would like. All warm with a sweet way about them. The location was ideal for me felt close enough to town but far enough to have serenity and tranquility. The owners are super nice. Noi I believe her name is took great care of me. She has a lively up personality and always there to offer help and make you feel at home. Staying here you will not regret. The owner and staff all of them take great pride in what they do and the service they provide. I can’t thank them all enough. …
