Second stay at this resort. Has changed owners in the last twelve months and is undergoing large upgrade so the outcome will remain to be seen.
Visited this time in the quiet season - July 2012.
One has to get used to the Thai way of doing things to give a real appraisal. They tend to let things run down during the low seasons then go hell-for-leather maintenance and renovation-wise just before the busy seasons.
This was the case during this stay but we were pre-warned and it wasnt a problem.
A very good resort to stay. The pool is a real bonus and not many Pai hotels have them - including Hotel des Artistes across the road - despite previous reviews. No comparisons really as des Artistes is very small in comparison.
Very good location, rooms are immaculate, grounds large and shady right beside the river. Right on the main walking streets. 150 metres to the bus station and 80 Baht to the airport.
Will definitely return as Pai is atmospheric and unique and this resort compliments that.
Avoid post xmas/new year as the Bangkok hordes make the place impossible to contemplate.
The walking streets have good markets every night.More
