Pura Vida

Classy yet cosy

What we say: 4 stars

Situated past Vieng Nur Village on the road going south back towards the bridge, Pura Vida is more east of Pai than north but since it's situated on its own a bit in the middle of nowhere, we plumped for an inclusion in this section. Location's not good -- it's not in any cute village nor surrounded by special scenery -- so the resort has to stand on its own merits, which fortunately are rather good. This Dutch/Thai-owned spot has excellent chalets in a very cute garden with good service, sharp organisation and bargain low season prices. 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.
