Indiana cottage is super cheap with nice Bungalows, a fun hangout area equipped with shady seats to lounge in and a pool table, its a long walk or short tuk-tuk from town, and is nicely situated right on the river (I like to take evening dips). Tasty but pricey food at the bar!

This has to be one the worst experiences I have had in Pai the owner is a nasty person you must watch out for her. To your face she is nice but she loves drama and involves herself to much into your business. The rooms are okay, not very clean. But good location, but there are many other guest houses...

First of all, the location is amazing. Right on the river on the quiet side of Pai. Spitting distance from all the night-scene action, but with the river to block out the party noise, it's the perfect location for every type of traveler. Second and MOST IMPORTANT, the owner, Sarah is the most gracious. hilarious, kind and accomodating host I...

( no shouting or playing " i think i can sing" after midnight). We don't have a swimming pool but we located right by the river.. so feel free to act like a mermaid or merman and dive in. We don't have free breakfast as who will wake up that early anyway. We don't have pick up or drop off transfer as we are only 3 minutes walk from the bus station (walking make you thin).

“Rooms are definitely not sound proof and are very rustic but there are private washrooms in each of the huts and they are clean! Pai can get a bit cold so bundle up if you're sleeping there, but overall the place is great!”
