Great deal in town centre
Located at the Chaisongkran end of Tesaban Road, Pai Village is an excellent spot and within its price category one of the best deals in the centre of town.
It's central but quiet with good rooms, friendly staff and excellent facilities. The reception area is spacious and nicely done out with a teak finish and they have one of the town’s better and more popular guesthouse restaurants out front, offering Western and Thai options at reasonable prices.
Behind this, in an admittedly cramped garden, are comfortable and well appointed chalets -- all with small balconies and en suite showers, attractively finished in bamboo and teak with traditional leaf roofs. The lush and dense garden does manage to create an impression of the chalets being in the middle of a manicured jungle rather than squeezed onto a slightly too small piece of land which they actually are. Paths and ponds break up the vegetation and while the resort doesn't quite reach the river, it's only a short walk away. Pai Village isn’t cheap but check their web offers, which are frequently lower than their advertised rates and which in a Pai context represent reasonable value for money. Rates quoted include breakfast.
