Unlike some of Pua’s hotels, Chomphu Pukha Resort is difficult to miss, found on a rise at the western end of the town’s main street before Route 101 heads out of town towards Nan.

It’s a short distance up the hill from the tourist centre and if you still can’t see it the hotel is liberally strewn with bright lights for good measure. From the carpark, reception for the two-storey hotel is on your right and a large restaurant/bar is to the left, overlooking what passes for downtown Pua. This also happens to function as one of Pua’s nightlife hotspots but don’t worry – it doesn’t get too rowdy and doesn’t close too late. The entrance and reception to the main building are finished in an elaborate Lanna style with lots of varnished teak, wood carvings and chunky rustic furniture but rooms are of a rather ordinary, generic Thai midrange type. There’s nothing wrong with them; all are equipped with air-con, WiFi, fridge, hot shower and comfortable beds and are clean, but they’re certainly not as fancy as reception would lead you to believe. Room size varies and some are on the small side, plus some of the downstairs ones were a bit dingy and musty. If you want to stay here get a second floor room, some of which have great views. Overall, for a similar price, Green Hill rooms are probably better. A few separate chalets are off to one side which looked pretty good, though lacking the second-storey views, but were full when we visited. Their restaurant is definitely worth checking out.
