Pai Tree House boasts an array of accommodation types to suit most budgets, spread across a well kept garden with Pai River marking the edge.
A bewildering range of room types and prices are on offer, ranging from a fan-cooled treehouse at 700/1,000 baht (low/high), through to two-room luxury chalets with their own saunas for 4,000/7,000 baht. The treehouses are a lot of fun if you're not scared of heights, and considering they are up a tree, the comfort levels are surprisingly good. The tiny riverside huts are quite cute as well.
Despite the name, there are only three treehouses, with most of the rooms firmly on the ground. This means that during high season you have very little chance of obtaining one of the treehouses unless you book months in advance. (The rest of the year actually you'll have to be quite lucky too.) The restaurant is good and the garden area very pleasant, with lots of places to hang out. During dry season there’s a bamboo bridge over the river, considerably shortening your walking time into Pai, though a free shuttle service is available. They also offer camping facilities during high season.
Pai Tree House is found along the road between Mae Yen and the hot springs.
