Baan Pai Riverside

Great riverside location

What we say: 3.5 stars

There’s a long string of bungalow resorts stretched along the east bank of the river and Pai Riverside is our favourite in the backpacker to flashpacker ranges. It's a large resort, so it may get a bit too much in high season, but it does have a great location right by the river and it's at the end of the row of resorts, so it's a bit quieter than ones in the middle.

They offer quite a range of accommodation options, from old bamboo A-frames facing the fields to well constructed bamboo and teak chalets with balconies facing the river, plus some splendid large concrete family villas and a simple air-con block looking onto the car park (which to be honest we didn’t fancy too much). The on-site restaurant has some excellent riverside terrace areas for watching the sunset and sipping a cold one and service is friendly and efficient.

This is a good deal in low season and when we stopped by in June rates were going for a lot less than published. When you see what you can get in a similar price range elsewhere, they are somewhat overpriced during high season, though rates then do include breakfast.
