Pai Homey is an unpretentious, low-key little establishment with just a few chalets set around a garden and lawn but what chalets they are!

These large, well-designed wooden bungalows on stilts could grace any upmarket resort in the valley, but instead are in this relatively new establishment—a very welcome addition to the low season budget and high season flashpacker array of options in Pai.

Homey is on the east bank of the Pai River but close to the permanent footbridge, so Chaisongkran isn’t more than a 10-minute or so pleasant stroll. Hiring motorbikes would not be a prerequisite of staying here. It is adjacent to the track linking up the Wiang Nua Road with the large clutch of surrounding resorts, but as the chalets are on the far side of the lawn, traffic noise shouldn’t be too much of an issue. There are numerous chalet locations around here—some with river views, while Homey is a couple of plots to the rear—but for value for money rooms and friendly, family-style service it’s our pick of the bunch in these parts.

The chalets are priced according to the number of occupants and are large enough to sleep three or four if you wish. Exteriors are dark varnished wood and interiors bright with woven bamboo panels cladding the walls. Rooms are simple and functional but seemed to contain all the requirements for a comfortable stay, with hammocks and benches on the decently sized balconies, mosquito nets draped over the beds and ensuite bathrooms with hot showers. The only drawback, which could be an issue during the March to May hot season, is the lack of air-con, though for much of the year in Pai it isn’t necessary. When we visited in July 2017 rooms were airy and cool.

There isn’t an in-house cafe or restaurant either—we did say it was low-key—but simple breakfasts and drinks are served in a small seating area in front of reception. Service is friendly, family style and very welcoming. Low season rates represent exceptional deals and high season months, when you can easily forgo air-conditioning, are equally good value for money.
