Pairadise Resort—not a typo, and be warned you’ll also see Paitopia and Pailifornia among other nearby efforts—boasts attractive individual chalets placed around a large fish pond and small swimming pool.

The resort is located near the beginning of the Wiang Nua Road, so cross the road bridge over the Pai River and take a left and you’ll see Pairaidise on a rise on the right side of the road, making it a 10-minute or so walk from town. Reception and their cafe, with spectacular views back across the valley, are ahead of you and their pond, pool and gardens lie to your right. Smaller fan rooms are placed on the left side and larger individual and air-con chalets on the right side of the pond.

The restaurant enjoys a great outlook.

The accommodation options, all with ensuite bathroom and hot showers, are well-maintained and designed, and come in a mixture of pale yellow painted concrete with split log cladding and small balconies out front. Thoughtfully, each of the latter is equipped with a hammock as well as regular chairs and table.

Effort has gone into decorating both fan and air-con rooms with decent, albeit minimal, furnishings, tasteful decor and, when we passed by in mid-2017, what looked like fresh coats of paint. A relatively recent upgrade has seen bedside light switches and sockets added, a minor but important detail. Bathrooms are clean and have hot showers.

Simple but comfortable rooms.

Being on a rise above the road, traffic noise should be minimal and there’s nothing much on the other three sides of the resort so, other than bird song and frogs, it ought to be very tranquil. The pond also comes with a roofed sala and seating on a small artificial island in the centre.

Service is friendly and helpful and while the restaurant doesn’t offer lunch or dinner it does serve drinks and during high season some very good breakfasts with house-made bread. Pairadise is a good deal for the price. High season rates are commendably restrained and further discounts may be available upon request, especially during the quite monsoon months. This is a very good year-round option.
