What we say: 4 stars

This Dutch-Thai-owned spot has excellent chalets in a very cute garden with good service, sharp organisation and bargain low season prices. The resort is found before Vieng Nua Village on the road leading north from the Pai bridge and they will willingly shuttle you into town every now and then -- but if you're going to spend any time out here you are ideally going to need transport or else a desire to hibernate on your chalet's verandah. You could walk into town by way of a short cut across the fields since it's quite a bit closer as the crow flies rather than by road, but you wouldn't want to be staggering back that way after dark. It's small and cosy as well, with only six double chalets and two twin ones. All are very tastefully decorated and well equipped, with hot showers and air-con. The cafe is excellent and prices include breakfast .

Prices are rather complicated. Even though all chalets are similar, with only a choice of single, double or twin room, they change almost monthly and even on days of the week. Below is rough idea but please check their website for specific dates.
